JARDIANCE: Newly Approved Drug to Lower HbA1C in Type-2 diabetes Presented By: Rahul Patel, MS, PharmD. Candidate 2015 Dr. Sam Shimomura, Associate Dean, Western University of Health Sciences Date:09/25/2014
Disclosure I, Rahul Patel, have no conflict of interest to disclose.
Objectives Pharmacists will be able to: Describe SGLT2 inhibitors Compare available SGLT-2 inhibitors Identify ideal candidates for SGLT2 inhibitors
Introduction 1 Diabetes mellitus is a chronic disease often requiring complex treatment regimens to prevent long-term complications. According to the 2012 statistics from CDC, 29.1 million people have diabetes. The total direct and indirect estimated cost of the disease in 2014 is 245 billion.
Introduction (Cont’d) Type 2 diabetes is characterized by 3 factors Persistent hyperglycemia Impaired β-cell function Insulin resistance
SGLT2 Inhibitors: A Novel Class 2 Sodium-Glucose Co-transporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibition works directly on glucose, independent of β-cell function and insulin 90% of the glucose is reabsorbed by SGLT2, remaining 10% by SGLT1
Currently Approved SGLT2 Inhibitors Invokana (canagliflozin) Mfg by: Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Licensed from Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation Approved in Mar’2013 Farxiga (dapagliflozin) Mfg By: Bristol-Myers Squib Company Mkt By: AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP Approved in Jan’2014 Jardiance (empagliflozin) Mfg By: Eli Lilly and Company Approved in Aug’2014
Jardiance Efficacy as Monotherapy 3 Results at Week 24 From a Placebo-Controlled Monotherapy Study of JARDIANCE
Efficacy in Combination 3 Results at Week 24 From a Placebo-Controlled Study for JARDIANCE used in Combination with Metformin
Efficacy in Combination 3 Results at Week 24 From a Placebo-Controlled Study for JARDIANCE in Combination with Metformin and Sulfonylurea
Adverse Effects of Jardiance 3 Adverse Reactions Reported in ≥2% of Patients Treated with JARDIANCE and Greater than Placebo in Pooled Placebo-Controlled Clinical Studies of JARDIANCE Monotherapy or Combination Therapy
Jardiance vs Farxiga
Jardiance vs Farxiga 4
Which SGLT-2 inhibitor to use ? Efficacy comparison * as monotherapy compared to placebo in 24 weeks trial Jardiance (10mg,25mg) Farxiga (5mg,10mg) Invokana 5 (100mg,300mg) HbA1C reduction (%) FPG reduction (mg/dL) Weight Loss (in Kg) SBP reduction (mmHg) * Note: comparison in individual trials and not in head to head clinical trials
Which SGLT-2 inhibitor to use ? Farxiga : Carries a warning of Bladder cancer risk. Newly diagnosed Bladder cancer has been reported in 0.17% of subjects Use not recommended in Hepatic Impairment (not studied ) Jardiance : Can be used in Hepatic Impairment Invokana : Use not recommended in Hepatic Impairment( not studied) Dose related Hyperkalemia >5.4mEq/mL(12%-27%), ≥6.5mEq/mL (2%)
Effects of SGLT-2 inhibitors Benefits : HbA1C decrease 0.5-1% Weight Loss No edema Once a day dosing A little decrease of SBP Minimal Hypoglycemia Drawbacks: UTI, balanitis, mycotic vulvovaginal infection Mild transient decrease in eGFR Not studied in Type 1 diabetes
Current Place in Therapy FDA approved as adjunct to diet and exercise to control blood glucose. Also studied in combination with metformin, SU, insulin, pioglitazone Can be used as second line, after metformin ( because metformin is more studied and approved as first line), however, its cost should be considered.
Conclusion Since the mechanism of action is independent of the insulin and β-cell function, theoretically it can be used as long as renal function is okay. It is a new drug,therefore should be used with extra monitoring, renal function especially. Long term effects unknown No studies have been done to see that if the decrease in HbA1C correlates with the decrease in macro and micro vascular complications associated with diabetes.
Ideal patient Which of the following is a candidate for therapy with Jardiance ? a.A 25 year old pregnant woman with Type 2 diabetes. b.A 38 year old male, obese patient with Type 2 diabetes having normal kidney function c.A 68 year old male patient with Type 2 diabetes. d.A 25 year old male patient with Type 1 diabetes
