ABSTRACT
The article highlights the results of the sub-analysis of the data from ADVANCE on reducing kidney damage in type 2 diabetes in Great Britain. The study shows that the blood pressure-lowering drug Preterax reduces the development of kidney damage in patients with type 2 diabetes by nearly one third. In addition, the medicine also enables regression of kidney disease in about one in six patients with existing kidney disease.
