AstraZeneca: AstraZeneca to present scientific advances in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases at 2017 ADA Scientific Ses...

Updated safety data on risk-benefit profile of Farxiga
(dapagliflozin), three new analyses from the landmark CVD-REAL study,
including Farxiga vs DPP-4 inhibitors, and a late-breaking oral
presentation reveal further CV evidence across a broad population of
patients with type-2 diabetes

Data from DURATION-7 and DURATION-8 evaluating efficacy and safety of
Bydureon (exenatide extended-release) in combination with basal
insulin and Farxiga, respectively

More than 50 abstracts demonstrate commitment to Cardiovascular and
Metabolic Diseases

AstraZeneca and its global biologics research and development arm,
MedImmune, will present the latest research from the Company's
Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases (CVMD) therapy area, including
for Farxiga (dapagliflozin) and Bydureon (exenatide
extended-release), with more than 50 abstracts at the American
Diabetes Association's (ADA) 77th Scientific Sessions in San Diego,
USA, 9-13 June 2017.

Ludovic Helfgott, Vice President, CVMD, said: "Science points to the
need to move beyond lowering blood sugar to treat patients with
type-2 diabetes holistically and earlier in their disease
progression. Through investment in rigorous clinical and real-world
evidence studies in large and diverse patient populations, we are
committed to advancing scientific understanding of the connections
between these highly-prevalent cardiovascular and metabolic diseases
and helping to enhance clinical practice to improve the lives of

Highlights include a comprehensive updated safety analysis of
dapagliflozin and three additional analyses from the landmark
CVD-REAL real-world evidence study, including CV data for
dapagliflozin, evaluating the risk of hospitalisation for kidney
disease and heart failure (HF), as well as all-cause mortality,
compared to DPP-4 inhibitors, a commonly-used treatment for type-2
diabetes (T2D). Additionally, a late-breaking oral presentation will
explore the rates of HF and death in patients with T2D, both with and
without cardiovascular disease, receiving treatment with SGLT-2
inhibitors (SGLT-2i) versus other T2D medicines.

Also presented will be the baseline characteristics and trial design
of DECLARE, the largest cardiovascular outcomes trial in the SGLT-2i
class. Both CVD-REAL and DECLARE are part of the extensive DapaCare
programme for dapagliflozin, which involves patients with and without
T2D to generate data across established CV disease, CV risk factors
and varying stages of renal disease, providing healthcare providers
with evidence needed to improve patient care.

AstraZeneca will also present analyses from DURATION-8, evaluating the
investigational use of exenatide extended-release in combination with
dapagliflozin, as well as primary data from DURATION-7, examining
exenatide extended-release in combination with basal insulin.

Notable data being presented by AstraZeneca include:

About the DapaCare Clinical Programme

AstraZeneca is taking a holistic, patient-centric approach to disease
management by addressing the underlying morbidity, mortality and
organ damage associated with cardiovascular (CV), metabolic and renal
diseases. Due to the interconnectivity of these diseases, AstraZeneca
has developed the DapaCare clinical programme to explore the CV and
renal profile of dapagliflozin in people with and without type-2
diabetes. The clinical programme will enrol nearly 30,000 patients in
randomised clinical trials and is supported by a multinational
real-world evidence study. DapaCare will generate data across a
spectrum of people with established CV disease, CV risk factors and
varying stages of renal disease, both with and without type-2
diabetes, providing healthcare providers with evidence needed to
improve patient outcomes. DapaCare underscores our commitment to
following the science by pursuing a holistic patient approach to
address the multiple risk factors associated with CV, metabolic and
renal diseases.

About AstraZeneca in Cardiovascular & Metabolic Diseases (CVMD)

Cardiovascular, renal and metabolic diseases are key areas of focus
