Cardiovascular Events, Diabetes and High Triglycerides

Don’t let diabetes lead to heart problems.

5-year study focuses on people with type 2 diabetes and elevated triglycerides

Lend a hand to help us research a potential medication that might prevent them. The PROMINENT Study is researching a potential new medication (study drug) for people with type 2 diabetes and elevated triglycerides (a type of fat in the blood) to see if it can help prevent heart attacks and other heart-related problems. The study will also look at how safe the study drug is, and how it affects the level of triglycerides in the blood. You may be able to take part if you:

  • have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes for 12 weeks or longer
  • are a woman 55 years of age or more, a man 50 years of age or more, or are 18 years of age or more with systemic atherosclerosis (also called artery disease, which is a hardening or narrowing of the arteries)
  • have been told you have moderately high triglyceride levels. Please ask your doctor if you are not sure.

The study will involve approximately 10,000 participants from around the world and will last for about 5 years. All study-related care will be provided at no cost to you.
