Dapagliflozin in Patients Recently Hospitalized With Heart Failure and Mildly Reduced or Preserved Ejection Fraction
J Am Coll Cardiol. 2022; online ahead of print DOI: 10.1016/j.jacc.2022.07.021
This prespecified analysis of the DELIVER trial found that dapagliflozin had beneficial effects on cardiovascular (CV) outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF) with mildly reduced or preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) who were enrolled during or following hospitalisation.
Dapagliflozin across the range of ejection fraction in patients with heart failure: a patient-level, pooled meta-analysis of DAPA-HF and DELIVER
Nat Med. 2022; online ahead of print DOI: 10.1038/s41591-022-01971-4
In a prospective, patient-level pooled meta-analysis of the DAPA-HF and DELIVER trials, dapagliflozin was found to improve clinical outcomes across the range of LVEF.

In this post hoc analysis of DAPA-HF, 43.7% of participants had iron deficiency at baseline, which was associated with worse outcomes. Dapagliflozin appeared to increase iron use but improved outcomes, irrespective of iron status at baseline.
Effect of Empagliflozin on Kidney Biochemical and Imaging Outcomes in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes, or Prediabetes, and Heart Failure with Reduced Ejection Fraction (SUGAR-DM-HF)
Circulation 2022;146:364-7 DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.122.059851
This study found that a reduction in kidney perfusion and congestion may be mechanisms by which sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) affect kidney function in people with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). The authors believe this is the first kidney MRI trial using SGLT2i in this patient group.
Dapagliflozin and New-Onset Type 2 Diabetes in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease Or Heart Failure: Pooled Analysis of the DAPA-CKD and DAPA-HF Trials
Lancet Diabetes Endocrinol 2022;10:24–34 doi.org/10.1016/
Chronic kidney disease and heart failure are insulin resistant states associated with high incidence rates of diabetes. Rossing et al. carried out a two Phase 3, randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials assessed the effect of dapagliflozin on new-onset type 2 diabetes, in a pooled analysis of data from 6,608 individuals.
Safety and efficacy of dapagliflozin in patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis: A prespecified analysis of the DAPA-CKD trial
Nephrol Dial Transplant. 2021 Nov 25;gfab335. DOI: 10.1093/ndt/gfab335.
This study by Wheeler et al. found that dapagliflozin numerically, but not significantly, reduced the rate of chronic decline of eGFR compared to placebo among DAPA-CKD participants with FSGS.
