  • Effects of different doses of canagliflozin on blood pressure and lipids in patients with type 2 diabetes: a meta-analysis - J Hypertens 2022 Feb 25 - "Compared with placebo, canagliflozin 100 mg reduced SBP by 3.43 mmHg and DBP by 1.05 mmHg. Canagliflozin 100 mg increased LDL-C by 0.10 mmol/l and HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) by 0.05 mmol/l. Compared with placebo, canagliflozin 300 mg reduced SBP by 4.75 mmHg and DBP by 1.69 mmHg. Canagliflozin 300 mg increased LDL-C by 0.16 mmol/l and HDL-C by 0.06 mmol/l. Compared with canagliflozin 100 mg, canagliflozin 300 mg further reduced SBP by 1.21 mmHg and DBP by 0.64 mmHg, and further increased LDL-C by 0.06 mmol/l and HDL-C by 0.02 mmol/l. Compared with placebo and canagliflozin 100 mg, canagliflozin 300 mg increased the risk of UTI" - See canagliflozin at ReliableRXPharmacy.
  • The diabetes medication that could revolutionize heart failure treatment - Science Daily, 12/1/21 - "For many years there was not a single medicine that could improve the outcome in patients with the second type of heart failure -- those patients with preserved ejection fraction ... SGLT2 inhibitors are more commonly known under their trade-names Forxiga (Dapagliflozin), Invokana (Canagliflozin), and Jardiance (Empagliflozin) ... We found that patients taking SGLT2 inhibitors were 22 per cent less likely to die from heart-related causes or be hospitalised for heart failure exacerbation than those taking placebo" - See dapagliflozin at reliablerxpharmacy.com.
  • Canagliflozin Improves HF Symptoms in Fully Remote Trial - Medscape, 11/16/21
  • Canagliflozin Reduces Kidney-Related Adverse Events in Type 2 Diabetes and CKD: Findings From the Randomized CREDENCE Trial - Am J Kidney Dis 2021 May 21 - "acute kidney injury (AKI ... Full recovery of kidney function within 30 days after an AKI event occurred more frequently with canagliflozin versus placebo (53.1% vs 35.4% ... Canagliflozin compared to placebo was associated with a reduced incidence of serious and non-serious kidney-related AEs in patients with T2DM and CKD"
  • FDA Approves Canagliflozin, a First-in-Class Diabetes Drug - Medscape, 3/29/13 - "Canagliflozin is the first in a new class of drug, an oral inhibitor of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2). Inhibition of SGLT2 reduces resorption of glucose in the kidney, resulting in increased urinary glucose excretion, with a consequent lowering of plasma glucose levels as well as weight loss ... But the panel voted 8 to 7 at the same meeting that it had concerns about the cardiovascular safety of canagliflozin, most particularly a possible elevated risk for stroke. In the end, they deemed that current data were insufficient to be certain about this risk and concluded that longer-term follow-up will be required, including completion of the Canagliflozin Cardiovascular Assessment Study (CANVAS)"


  • Neuroprotective effects of Canagliflozin: Lessons from aged genetically diverse UM-HET3 mice - Aging Cell 2022 Jun 15 - "The aging brain is characterized by progressive increases in neuroinflammation and central insulin resistance, which contribute to neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive impairment. Recently, the Interventions Testing Program demonstrated that the anti-diabetes drug, Canagliflozin (Cana), a sodium-glucose transporter 2 inhibitor, led to lower fasting glucose and improved glucose tolerance in both sexes, but extended median lifespan by 14% in male mice only. Here, we show that Cana treatment significantly improved central insulin sensitivity in the hypothalamus and the hippocampus of 30-month-old male mice. Aged males produce more robust neuroimmune responses than aged females. Remarkably, Cana-treated male and female mice showed significant reductions in age-associated hypothalamic gliosis with a decrease in inflammatory cytokine production by microglia ... Thus, Cana treatment improved insulin responsiveness in aged male mice. Furthermore, Cana treatment improved exploratory and locomotor activity of 30-month-old male but not female mice. Taken together, we demonstrate the sex-specific neuroprotective effects of Cana treatment, suggesting its application for the potential treatment of neurodegenerative diseases" - See canagliflozin at ReliableRXPharmacy.
  • Effects of canagliflozin on serum potassium in people with diabetes and chronic kidney disease: the CREDENCE trial - Eur Heart J 2021 Aug 23 - "Hyperkalaemia is a common complication of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and limits the optimal use of agents that block the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, particularly in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). In patients with CKD, sodium‒glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors provide cardiorenal protection, but whether they affect the risk of hyperkalaemia remains uncertain ... Among patients treated with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors, SGLT2 inhibition with canagliflozin may reduce the risk of hyperkalaemia in people with T2DM and CKD without increasing the risk of hypokalaemia"
  • Effects of 1-year Treatment with Canagliflozin on Body Composition and Total Body Water in Patients with Type 2 Diabetes - Diabetes Obes Metab 2021 Aug 2 - "107 patients with type 2 diabetes were treated with canagliflozin 100 mg, as add-on therapy, for 12 months ... plasma volume (PV) ... Body weight showed a significant decrease from 1 month to 12 months of treatment with canagliflozin, with a higher rate of decrease in body fat in body composition. A significant decrease in mineral mass was also observed, but its rate was low. Following treatment with canagliflozin, changes in total body water did not affect intracellular water, and a significant decrease in extracellular water, including plasma components, was observed early and was sustained up to 12 months. Protein mass, a component of muscle mass, was not affected, with only a slight decrease in water volume observed ... Canagliflozin decreased extracellular fluid and PV in addition to decreasing fat in the body via calorie loss resulting from urinary glucose excretion. This study suggested that SGLT2 inhibitors might reduce body weight by regulating fat mass or water distribution in the body and might have cardiac and renal protective effects by resetting the homeostasis of fluid balance" - See canagliflozin at ReliableRXPharmacy.
