Nissen Meta-Analysis 42 Studies Increased odds ratio of 1.43 for Acute MI risk And 1.64 for the risk of cardiac death NEJM May 21, 2007
Nissen Analysis Weakness 1.No access of original source data: unable to perform time – to – end analysis. 2.The trials were not designed to explore CVD outcomes. 3. The number of adverse events were small. 4.Confidence intervals were very wide.
Effect of Rosiglitazone on the Risk of Myocardial Infarction and Death from Cardiovascular Causes Conclusions Rosiglitazone was associated with a significant increase in the risk of myocardial infarction and with an increase in the risk of death from cardiovascular causes that had borderline significance Nissen, S.E. and Wolski, K., N Engl J Med 2007;356.

Rosiglitazon The scientific and regulatory issues underlying the current controversy Steve E. Nissen MD ADA June Meeting 2007
Rosiglitazon Registratione (May 1999) Major concerns had emerged about hepatic toxicity of troglitazone. FDA was eager to approve a “safer” alternative and rosiglitazone and pioglitazone appeared free of this life-threatening side effect. The registration “package” for rosiglitazone consisted of 5 trials (2902 patients), mostly short-term (24 weeks) glycemic control studies. The drug was presented to an FDA Advisory Panel on May 22, ADA June Meeting 2007
Rosiglitazone Advisory Panel: CV Events Ischemic Heart Disease Events Relative RiskComparatorsRosiglitazone /1452 (0.69%)36/2902 (1.24%) FED Reviewer “A post-marketing study to evaluate long” Term safety RSG should be required for approval. ADA June Meeting 2007
Rosiglitazone Approval Issues In the initial studies submitted for approval, rosiglitazone increased LDL-cholesterol by 18.6% obviously a major concern in diabetic patients. The numerical excess of cardiovascular ischemic events and increase in atherogenic lipoproteins received little attention after initial approval. However, one individual, incoming ADA President John Buse, expressed concern at scientific meeting and wrote to the company and FDA. ADA June Meeting 2007
Post-Registration Studies No major cardiovascular outcome trial, but many small, generally short-term, efficacy studies conducted. Three larger, longer term studies. Dream: A three year 5000 patient, placebo-controlled, “diabetes prevention” trial (Lancent September 2006). ADOPT: A four year, 4400 patient metforin and glyburide controlled study of glycemic durability, but no adjudication of cardiovascular events (NEJM December 2006). RECORD: An open label, six year, 4400 patient, European regulatory cardiovascular outcome study (comparison with metformin/sulfonylurea) due in ADA June Meeting 2007

ADOPT : Major Cardiovascular Outcomes Myocardial Infarction P valueOdds Ratio Comparators Rosiglitazone ( ) 41/2895 (1.42%) 27/1456 (1.85%) ADA June Meeting 2007
Rosiglitazone Staus: December 2006 Pooled “registration” trials showed a 1.8 fold higher rate of ischemic CV events with rosiglitazone compared with placebo or other agents. The DREAM Trial showed a 1.66 fold higher rate of MI with rosigltazone compared with placebo. The ADOPT Trial showed a 1.33 fold higher rate of MI with rosiglitazone compared with other agents. Although none of the individual studies reached statistical significance, the consistent pattern of excess myocardial infractions was very worrisome. ADA June Meeting 2007
Meta-analysis NEJM-May 2007 With published data showing trends towards cardiovascular harm, further analysis warranted. Since available trials were too small to provide adequate power to answer this scientific question, a meta-analysis was the next logical step. Fortunately, as a result of a lawsuit by NY Attorney General Elliott Spitzer, GSK was required to publicly disclose all clinical trial results. This disclosure include 42 randomized studies (mostly unpublished) comparing rosiglitazone with other agents or placebo (> 24 weeks duration)> ADA June Meeting 2007

Glaxo Smith Kline and FDA Analysis Near completion of our meta-analysis, we learned that GSK had performed a similar study (never published), initially in September 2005, updates in October Not including DERAM and ADOPT, the company’s own analysis showed a statistically significant 31 percent greater rate of “myocardial ischemic events”. The GSK analysis used the more powerful patient-level data not available in our meta-analysis. Recently, FDA announced that they had conducted their own independent meta-analysis, which showed “approximately 40%” greater rate of ischemic events. ADA June Meeting 2007
Risk of MI with RSG Nissen analysis 43% FDA 40% Glaxo 31% RECORD 11% ADA June Meeting 2007
Some final thoughts Nissen With the limitations of RECORD, in the year 2009, 10 years after the launch of rosiglitazone, We may still not know whether this agent benefits or harms patients with Type 2 diabetes. Accordingly, the three meta-analysis (GSK, FDA and NEJM) of all 42 rosiglitazone trials is the best data we are likely to have for the foreseeable future. Therefore, each physician must decide for themselves how to integrate these findings into their treatment decisions for individual patients. ADA June Meeting 2007

Nissen and Wolski Results OR rosiglitazone vs placebo or active comparator MI 1.43 (95% CI 1.03 to 1.98) P:0.03 CV death 1.64 (95% CI, 0.98 to 2.74), P:0.06 Problems: 42 studies – some excluded Many studies only zero or 1 report Events not endpoints, just investigator reports No time- to – events analysis Hypothesis generating not testing ADA June Meeting 2007
The RECOCRD Study Interim Analysis Why?? Not normally appropriate However: Safety analysis prepared for the regulators were leaking into the press Acute reaction to the Nissen/Wolski study began to lead to withdrawals 23 May – Steering Committee decision that publication of interim analysis lesser of the evils 05 June – Publication on line of revised paper after 8 reviewer report ADA June Meeting 2007
The RECORD Study Primarily a cardiovascular safety study People with Type 2 diabetes in 2001 – 2003 Primarily endpoints A composite of cardiac and vascular outcomes Active comparator study Assessed for non-inferiority of rosiglitazone Add-on oral agents – combination therapy study Planned 6 years follow-up ADA June Meeting 2007

RECORDE Study and Interim Analysis: Some Conclusions By comparison with other medications believed to improve cardiovascular outcome, rosiglitazone appears to behave similarly for CV-death, all cause death, and CV composite This suggests that rosiglitazone should still have a role in the glucose-lowering armoury A clinically significant increase in MI not causing death cannot be ruled out from the RECORD data The known problem of CHF is again confirmed RECORD should continue to its planned end ADA June Meeting 2007

NEJM, June 5, 2007 The Jury David Nathan The Jury may still be out with regard to the cardio toxicity of rosiglitazone. But when it comes to patients safety, first do no harm, should outweigh any presumption of innocent. NEJM June 5, 2007
The Jury-David Nathan It is reasonable to ask whether physician should feel comfortable using a drug that might have an excess risk of CVD when other choices available, including Pioglitazone which has limited clinical trial data suggesting a Proactive CVD…. NEJM June 5, 2007

CHD CHF Insulin Nitrate
What about Pioglitazone?
Rosiglitazone vs Pioglitazone Class effect ?? 1.Lipids 2.PROactive 3.CHICAGO 4.FDA data Coke VS Pepsi
Risk of MI in Pioglitazone 1.FDA: unpublished data 2.Pioglitazone reduced MI risk by 22% FDA Advisory panel meeting July 31, 2007
Have Glitazones lost the throne?
Where I stand?
My Stand 1.RSG has proven glucose – lowering abilliteis 2.Long – established risks for CHF 3.It poses a small but significant risk of MI 4.Still useful but in very selective cases
