The CVD-REAL study

CVD-REAL is a multinational, observational cohort study in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus evaluating the comparative effectiveness of initiating treatment with a sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor versus another glucose-lowering drug. This study will compare the risk of clinically relevant cardiovascular (CV) outcomes (e.g. stroke, myocardial infarction, hospitalization for heart failure and all-cause mortality) in patients who are new users of SGLT-2 inhibitors with the risk in those who are new users of other glucose-lowering drugs1. CVD-REAL is aiming to collect data from approximately 4 million patients overall, from twelve countries across four major world regions.
