The LEADER CV outcomes trial showed Victoza® was proven to reduce CV risk8
The Victoza® Patient
Consider Victoza® for adult patients with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease
Victoza® is not indicated for chronic weight management, and weight change was a secondary endpoint in clinical trials.
aThe primary composite outcome occurred in fewer patients in the Victoza® group (608 of 4668 patients [13.0%]) than in the standard of care group (694 of 4672 [14.9%]) (hazard ratio, 0.87; 95% confidence interval, 0.78-0.97; (P=0.01).
