The incidence rate ratio for primary MACE for the phase 2b/phase 3 pool population is
shown at the top of the slide. The incidence rate ratio for each individual study is shown
below. The point estimate and the 95% of confidence intervals are shown relative to a
vertical line drawn at unity. Data to the left of the vertical line indicate the Saxagliptin is
better, data to the right of the vertical line indicate the control is better.
weighted Kaplan Meier estimate for cumulative proportion. The X-axis represents time
measured in weeks, the Y-axis represents the cumulative percent of patients with primary
MACE. The data in this figure do not indicate increased risk for primary MACE for
Saxagliptin treatment patients during either the short-term or the long-term phase of our
the incidence rate ratio was 0.83. As expected, there was some variability in the point
estimate for each individual trial, but there was considerable overlap in the confidence
intervals indicating consistency in results for the trials in the phase 2b/phase 3 program.
Our statistical analysis plan specified that we would analyze primary MACE in sub
groups of patients with clinical evidence of cardiovascular disease and with
cardiovascular risk factors.
