DAPA-CKD Results Highly Positive; AZ Winning in SGLT2i LCM

Full results from the DAPA-CKD renal outcomes trial were presented at the 2020 virtual ESC conference (view AstraZeneca press release), but it does not appear the results have been published. Results demonstrated a highly impressive 39% RRR in the primary composite endpoint (sustained ≥50% decline in eGFR, ESKD, renal death, or CV death). Curiously, the CV death component of the primary endpoint failed to demonstrate a statistically significant benefit (HR=0.81; p=0.20); however, there was a statistically significant 31% RRR in all-cause mortality. Below, FENIX provides thoughts on the DAPA-CKD results in the context of the Invokana CREDENCE study (DKD), the ongoing EMPA-KIDNEY trial from BI/Lilly, and Lexicon’s SOLOIST and SCORED CVOTs.
