Comparing Medications for Adults With Type 2 Diabetes

This slide set is based on a comparative effectiveness review (CER) titled Oral Diabetes Medications for Adults With Type 2 Diabetes: An Update, which was developed by the Johns Hopkins University Evidence-based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ Contract No. 290-02-0018) and is available online. CERs are comprehensive systematic reviews of the literature and usually compare two or more types of treatments, such as different drugs, for the same condition. For the CER on diabetes medications for adults with type 2 diabetes, data sources were taken from searches of MEDLINE, Embase, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials databases from inception through April 2010 for original English-language articles; unpublished data was taken from the Food and Drug Administration and others. The review this slide set is based on 140 randomized controlled trials and 26 observational studies.
