Making Sense of the CVOT Landscape in Type 2 Diabetes


Originally presented on August 28, 2019 by James Ruggles, PhD, and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE

This presentation aims to put the SGLT-2 Inhibitor and GLP-1 Receptor Agonist CVOTs into context. We'll review study designs, patient populations, and outcomes in patients with established cardiovascular disease and in patients with risk factors.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand key elements in how CVOTs were designed, including key differences in patient populations and treatment duration.
  2. Understand post-hoc attempts to understand effects in patients with established disease and in patients with risk factors.
  3. Describe key takeaways and how these results are impacting treatment guidelines and future directions of research.




The Role of the Platelet in Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: Therapeutic Options

Wednesday, October 23, 2019 at 1:00 pm EST

Presented by Narinder P. Bhalla, MD, FACC, FSCAI and Curtis Triplitt, PharmD, CDE

The program will go over the role of the platelets in patients with T2D and the abnormal physiology of the platelets in this patient group. We will discuss how this abnormal physiology relates to the overall CV risk in patients with Type 2 Diabetes. The data on current approved treatments will be discussed as well as some more recent data.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Gain knowledge on the abnormal physiology of platelets in this patient group
  2. Understand the relation of abnormal platelet physiology to cardiovascular risk
  3. Understand the available therapeutics and newer data in this area
