*The objective of this retrospective database study was to describe real-world patterns of DPP4i use and to assess concordance with PI recommended dosing among patients with T2D and moderate to severe CKD (Stage 3b-5; indicated by eGFR value <45 mL/min/1.73m2) treated with sitagliptin, saxagliptin, or linagliptin. The study used Quintiles’ electronic medical records (Q-EMR) linked to administrative claims from Truven’s MarketScan database 2010-2014 in the US; 492 DPP4i patients with moderate to severe CKD were identified (323 on sitagliptin, 57 on saxagliptin, 112 on linagliptin).
CKD: Chronic kidney disease; eGFR: Estimated glomerular filtration rate; ESRD: End-stage renal disease; QD: Once daily.
