Efficacy and safety of long-acting nifedipine (GITS) in patients with diabetes and symptomatic stable angina pectoris: insights from the ACTION trial

Meredith, P.A. and Elliott, Henry L. (2009) Efficacy and safety of long-acting nifedipine (GITS) in patients with diabetes and symptomatic stable angina pectoris: insights from the ACTION trial. Diabetologia, 52 (Supple). S26-S26. ISSN 0012-186X

Abstract

In the ACTION (A Coronary disease Trial Investigating Outcome with Nifedipine GITS) trial, the benefits of adding nifedipine GITS to the treatment of patients with stable symptomatic coronary artery disease were particularly apparent in those with concomitant hypertension. This further analysis has assessed whether or not the addition of nifedipine GITS is particularly beneficial in the treatment of patients with the combination of diabetes mellitus and chronic stable angina.
