AstraZeneca starts Covid-19 trial of diabetes drug Farxiga

AstraZeneca, in alliance with Saint Luke’s Mid America Heart Institute, has started a Phase III clinical trial of its diabetes drug Farxiga (dapagliflozin) to treat hospitalised Covid-19 patients at risk of serious complications.

Farxiga is an oral, once-daily sodium-glucose transport protein 2 (SGLT2) inhibitor indicated for adults with insufficiently controlled type 2 diabetes (T2D), as an adjunct to diet and exercise.
