Overview

Sodium – glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are a new group of antidiabetic drugs, which supports glucosuria. In EMPA-REG OUTCOME clinical study empagliflozin, an SGLT2 inhibitor, presented a great benefit in type 2 diabetic patients: reduction of all-cause and cardiovascular mortalities, neutral effect in the incidence of myocardial infarctions and a non-significant increase of strokes. The effects of treatment were presented rather early in the study, just some few months for mortality reduction from the beginning of the study.

There exists also other SGLT2 inhibitors and these are tested in other studies. A meta-analysis showed a mortality benefit for this group of antidiabetic drugs, showed a reduction of the incidence of myocardial infarctions and a neutral effect for incidence of strokes.

Key words:
cardiovascular events, meta-analysis of SGLT2 inhibitors studies, mortality, SGLT2 inhibitors
