Condition type 2 diabetes mellitus
Treatment gemigliptin
Sponsor LG Life Sciences
Start date June 2013
End date December 2017
Trial size 5180 participants
Trial identifier NCT02290301, LG-DPOS001


The primary objective of the study is to investigate cardiovascular safety of gemigliptin by evaluating the time until patients report with major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in T2DM patients treated with gemigliptin.

Study patients will be followed up to 4 years until MACE occurrence or until the patient drops out of the study or completion of the study. The patient who switches to a non-gemigliptin treatment after initiating gemigliptin therapy will be followed until MACE occurrence or until the patient drops out of the study or completion of the study.

The secondary objectives of the study are to evaluate adverse events related as well as not-related to MACE in diabetic patients treated with gemigliptin.
