Jentadueto Approved for Type 2 Diabetes
In a 24-week, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled factorial study evaluating 791 adult patients with type 2 diabetes and inadequate glycemic control with diet and exercise, linagliptin/metformin combination therapy demonstrated greater efficacy in glycemic control compared with linagliptin or metformin monotherapy and placebo. Linagliptin/metformin 2.5mg/500mg and 2.5mg/1,000mg demonstrated a -1.3% and -1.7% difference, respectively, from placebo in A1C change from baseline and a -43mg/dL and -60mg/dL difference, respectively, from placebo in fasting plasma glucose change from baseline.
