Dinner Symposium B
Thursday · 7:00 - 9:00pm
Novel and Emerging Combinations to Achieve Glycemic Control and Reduce
A Focus on Incretin-Based Therapy and SGLT2 Inhibitors
Supported by an educational grant from AstraZeneca
Newer treatment options, including sodium glucose co-transporter-2 (SGLT2) inhibitors, dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, and several fixed-dose combinations are available or are under development, and may change the treatment paradigm for T2DM. These evidence-based therapies have the potential to work synergistically in combination with other available interventions to achieve glycemic control and to reduce overall cardiometabolic risk for individuals with T2DM. This symposium will keep clinicians apprised of new clinical trial data and developments and discuss how to appropriately integrate these newer and emerging therapies into clinical practice.
- Assess the benefits and limitations of currently available antihyperglycemic therapies as well as the most common reasons patients with T2DM fail to achieve target HbA1c goals.
- Review the mechanisms of action of incretin-based therapy and SGLT2 inhibitors, and discuss the therapeutic advantages of targeting their novel pathways.
- Provide healthcare providers with current guideline recommendations concerning how to appropriately integrate combination therapies into clinical practice.
- Analyze the clinical trial data on these new classes of drugs, such as dual or triple combination therapy, in patients with T2DM at various stages of the disease.
- Help clinicians understand how to improve outcomes in patients with diabetes by selecting appropriate and effective therapies that tighten glycemic control and reduce overall cardiometabolic risk in patients with T2DM.
