Cardiac and Kidney Benefits of Empagliflozin in Heart Failure Across the Spectrum of Kidney Function: Insights From the EMPEROR-Preserved Trial

European Journal of Heart Failure 2023 DOI 10.1002/ejhf.2857

In the EMPEROR-Preserved trial, empagliflozin was found to improve the clinical outcomes of patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). This pre-specified analysis sought to explore the effect of empagliflozin on cardiovascular (CV) and kidney outcomes across different levels of kidney function.

Outcomes with Finerenone in Participants with Stage 4 CKD and Type 2 Diabetes: A FIDELITY Subgroup Analysis

Clin J Am Soc Nephrol. 2023; online ahead of print DOI: 10.2215/CJN.0000000000000149

Patients with stage 4 CKD and T2D have limited treatment options to reduce their persistent CV and kidney risk. This post hoc analysis of the FIDELITY database evaluated the effect of finerenone vs placebo in 890 patients with stage 4 CKD and T2D.

Empagliflozin, Irrespective of Blood Pressure, Improves Outcomes in Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction: the EMPEROR-Preserved Trial

Eur Heart J. 2022; online ahead of print DOI: 10.1093/eurheartj/ehac693

Results from EMPEROR-Preserved demonstrated that empagliflozin improved CV and renal outcomes in patients with HFpEF, but its efficacy and safety with baseline SBP is not well established.

Empagliflozin in Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

N Engl J Med. 2022; online ahead of print

Among a wide range of at-risk patients with CKD, empagliflozin reduced progression of kidney disease or death from CV causes compared with placebo in the EMPA-KIDNEY trial.

Previous large trials involving patients with diabetic kidney disease and albuminuria have shown that SGLT2i reduce the risk of progression to kidney failure; however, most patients with CKD have low levels of albuminuria (UACR <300 mg/g) and do not have diabetes.

Empagliflozin Improves Outcomes in Patients With Heart Failure and Preserved Ejection Fraction Irrespective of Age

J Am Coll Cardiol 2022;80(1):1-18 doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2022.04.040

Sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) reduce cardiovascular death and hospitalisation for heart failure (HHF) in patients with HFpEF, and are recommended in recent guidelines for heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), supported by Class IA evidence. Typically, HFpEF patients are older than HFrEF, and have a higher mortality risk associated with older age, while the risk for cardiovascular death is lower than in HFrEF. Until now, the treatment effects and safety of SGLT2i in relation to age have not been studied. This prespecified analysis of the EMPEROR-Preserved trial examined the interplay of age and empagliflozin treatment effects.

For patients on placebo, the incidence of primary outcomes and cardiovascular death increased with age. In contrast, empagliflozin reduced the primary outcome, first HHF, and first and recurrent HHF across all age groups. Empagliflozin also improved health-related quality of life, and attenuated the decline of eGFR without age interaction. Additionally, there were no clinically relevant differences in AEs between empagliflozin and placebo across the age groups, and elderly patients tolerated the treatment well.

Empagliflozin and Incidence of Events Consistent With Acute Kidney Injury: Pooled Safety Analysis in More Than 15,000 Individuals

Diabetes Obes Metab 2022;24:1390-3 doi: 10.1111/dom.14694

In this pooled analysis of patients from the global empagliflozin trial programme, the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI) and acute kidney disease (AKD) with empagliflozin was comparable with placebo. This comprehensive analysis indicates that empagliflozin is not associated with an increased risk of acute kidney failure compared with placebo treatment.


Effects of Canagliflozin Versus Finerenone on Cardiorenal Outcomes: Exploratory Post Hoc Analyses From FIDELIO-DKD Compared to Reported CREDENCE Results

Nephrol Dial Transplant 2022;37:1261-9

This analysis highlights the pitfalls of direct comparisons between trials, since when key differences in design are considered, FIDELIO-DKD and CREDENCE demonstrate similar cardiorenal benefits. The authors conclude that both canagliflozin and finerenone are similarly effective in reducing the risk of cardiorenal outcomes.

Effects of Empagliflozin on Markers of Liver Steatosis and Fibrosis and Their Relationship to Cardiorenal Outcomes

Diabetes Obes Metab 2022; doi:10.1111/dom.14670

In this study of adults with T2D and established CV disease, the proportion of patients at high steatosis risk decreased slightly in patients treated with empagliflozin compared with patients treated with placebo. Fibrosis risk was not reduced.


Finerenone in Predominantly Advanced CKD and Type 2 Diabetes With or Without Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter-2 Inhibitor Therapy

Kidney Int Rep 2022;7:36–45

Finerenone was associated with a 31% greater reduction in urine albumin:creatinine ratio (UACR) from baseline to Month 4 versus placebo. With similar reductions in UACR seen whether the patient was receiving SGLT2i at baseline or not.
