ACTOS (pioglitazone HCl) significantly improved components of diabetic dyslipidemia

Results from the first head-to-head study between ACTOS and Avandia (rosiglitazone maleate) published in Diabetes Care

Lincolnshire, IL, June 29, 2005 A new study published in today's issue of Diabetes Care demonstrated that ACTOS improved components of diabetic dyslipidemia to a significantly greater extent than Avandia. Specifically, the results indicated that treatment with ACTOS lowered triglycerides (a type of lipid, or fat, found in food and the body), increased HDL-C ("good" cholesterol), and improved LDL-C ("bad" cholesterol) particle concentration and particle size. These differences were independent of blood glucose control and occurred without the use of a traditional lipid-lowering statin medication.

Diabetic dyslipidemia is a condition commonly found in people with type 2 diabetes and is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death for people with type 2 diabetes. Diabetic dyslipidemia is characterized by increased triglycerides and decreased HDL-C. People with diabetic dyslipidemia also tend to have normal levels of LDL-C, but smaller, denser LDL-C particles that are likely to contribute to cholesterol build-up in arteries.

"This study provides important insight into the relative impact of each drug on important cardiovascular risk markers," noted principal investigator Ronald B. Goldberg, M.D., professor of Medicine and Associate Director of the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. "The results demonstrate a clear difference between ACTOS and Avandia on their effects on diabetic dyslipidemia, with ACTOS lowering triglycerides and raising HDL-C to a greater extent than Avandia."

Study Design

This 24-week prospective, randomized, multicenter, double-blind clinical trial enrolled 802 people with type 2 diabetes (treated with diet alone or oral monotherapy) and dyslipidemia (not treated with any lipid-
