Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and sodium glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2) inhibitors are frequently used in combination for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We examined the efficacy and safety of teneligliptin (a DPP-4 inhibitor) added onto canagliflozin (an SGLT2 inhibitor) monotherapy in Japanese patients with poorly controlled T2DM as part of the development of a fixed-dose combination of teneligliptin and canagliflozin. Japanese patients treated with canagliflozin (100 mg) for ≥12 weeks were randomised to receive add-on teneligliptin (20 mg; C + T group) or placebo (C + P group) for 24 weeks. The primary endpoint was the change in glycated haemoglobin (HbA1c) from baseline to Week 24. The between-group differences in reductions from baseline to Week 24 were significantly greater in the C + T group for HbA1c (−0.94%; p <0.001). The incidence of adverse events was similar in both groups (55.8% and 49.4% in the C + T and C + P groups, respectively). No episodes of hypoglycaemia were reported. Teneligliptin added onto ongoing canagliflozin improved glycaemic control and was well tolerated in Japanese patients with inadequately controlled T2DM.
