New Oral Sema Primary Prevention CVOT (ASCEND PLUS)

Novo Nordisk and Oxford have initiated a new Ph4 T2DM CVOT, called ASCEND PLUS, evaluating 14mg QD oral semaglutide in 20,000 primary prevention patients (view CT.gov record). Of note, the trial was initially discussed back in June 2021, but it was just posted to CT.gov (view article). Interestingly, the study is said to be conducted virtually with no physical sites and all interactions being conducted using “innovative patient-centred web-based technology, supplemented by telephone, video call contact and mailed letters.” Below, FENIX provides an overview of the study and will conduct an in-depth analysis in the coming days.
