Overview

At e-SPACE CRM 2022 clinical data was analysed through a practical lens to address questions around SGLT2 inhibitor use in CKD.

 

Explore the data-supported discussion of the treatment landscape for patients with CKD, and other comorbidities. The inciteful conversation is led by Dr Muthiah Vaduganathan (Chair) and Professor Mustafa Arici.

This symposium was endorsed by University of Groningen and supported by an unrestricted educational grant from AstraZeneca.

This educational symposium will increase delegates' understanding of:

  • SGLT2 inhibitors as part of the evidence-based CKD treatment landscape
  • Data supporting the cardiorenal efficacy of SGLT2 inhibition in comorbid patients with CKD
  • How clinical data from SGLT2 inhibitor trials should be applied in clinical practice

Target Audience

  • Cardiologists
  • Nephrologists
