SCORED Clinical Trial*

The University of Calgary Clinical Trials Unit is currently seeking individuals with Type 2 Diabetes to participate in this clinical trial.

This study investigates a new type of glucose-lowering drug that works in the kidneys to allow more sugar to be lost in the urine and intestines to prevent absorption of sugars. It also causes modest weight loss. This is a 4 year study requiring approximately 2 visits per year.

You may be eligible to participate if:

  • You have Type 2 Diabetes with an HbA1c over 7%
  • You have a mild to moderate kidney problem
  • Have cardiovascular disease or risk factors for developing cardiovascular disease
