Do you have type 2 diabetes and are currently struggling with weight and blood sugar related issues?
This clinical research study is evaluating an experimental treatment for type 2 diabetics. This study will look at how well CagriSema helps people with type 2 diabetes lower their blood sugar and body weight. CagriSema is a new investigational medicine. Doctors may not yet prescribe CagriSema. CagriSema will be compared to a medicine called tirzepatide that doctors may prescribe in some countries. Participants will get either CagriSema or tirzepatide. Which treatment participant get is decided by chance like flipping a coin. Participant will have an equal chance of receiving either drug. For each participant, the study will last for up to one and a half years.
Would you like to take part?
As a volunteer in a research study, you’ll receive study-related medical care from the study doctor and regular follow-up of your health to monitor the effectiveness of the care you’ll receive. The results of this research will be used to find out if the investigational medication being studied will be of benefit to others struggling to manage type 2 diabetes, and whether it will be made widely available to all Canadians. Study volunteers are an important part of moving medical care forward.
