‘A total of 10,285 10,501 patients with type 2 diabetes participated in nine ten double blind, controlled clinical efficacy and safety studies conducted to evaluate the effects of Invokana on glycaemic control. The racial distribution was 72% White, 16% Asian, 4 5% Black, and 8% other groups. 16 17% of patients were Hispanic. Approximately 58% of patients were male. Patients had an overall mean age of 59.6 59.5 years (range 21 years to 96 years), with 3,082 3,135 patients ≥ 65 years of age and 510 513 patients ≥ 75 years of age. 58% of patients had a body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2….’

Canagliflozin dosed with a titration regimen produced clinically and statistically significant (p < 0.001) results relative to placebo in glycaemic control, including HbA1c and change from baseline fasting plasma glucose (FPG), and a statistically significant (p < 0.01) improvement in the percentage of patients achieving HbA1c < 7%. In addition, reductions in body weight and systolic blood pressure relative to placebo were observed.’

‘Difference from placebo (adjusted mean)
