The article focuses on studies on the relative cardiovascular safety of pioglitazone and rosiglitazone in older patients with diabetes. A study was conducted on 39 736 Ontario residents of 66 years who started treatment with pioglitazon or rosiglitazone during a 6-year period. It was found that in older diebetic patients, starting treatment with pioglitazone instead of rosiglitazone was associated with lower risk for a composite of death or admission for heart failure or myocardial infarction.
