TAK-875_306: A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled, Phase 3 Study to Evaluate Cardiovascular Outcomes of TAK-875, 50 mg in Addition to Standard of Care in Subjects with Type 2 Diabetes and with Cardiovascular Disease or Multiple Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Events
The aim of this study is to learn about the cardiovascular safety of TAK-875 (the investigational drug) when given with standard medications for type 2 diabetes in people at risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The study doctor is also doing this study to find out if taking TAK-875 plus standard of care diabetic medication is better than taking placebo plus standard of care diabetic medications. TAK-875 is an investigational drug being developed to potentially improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes. TAK-875 may affect the production of insulin and may improve how the body uses the sugar in your blood.

20110118: A Double-blind, Randomized, Placebo-controlled, Multicenter Study Assessing the Impact of Additional LDL-Cholesterol Reduction on Major Cardiovascular Events When AMG 145 is Used in Combination With Statin Therapy In Patients with Clinically Evident Cardiovascular Disease
This study is designed to see whether treatment of dyslipidemia with AMG 145 in people who have experienced a prior myocardial infarction or stroke, and who are taking a highly effective dose of a statin, reduces the risk of recurring or additional cardiovascular events

eTRIS – A Randomized, Open-Lablel Parallel-Group, Multi-Center Study for the Evaluation of eTRIS – Efficacy and Safety of Edoxaban Monotherapy Versus (LMW) Heparin/ Warfarin in Subjects with Symptomatic Deep-Vein Thrombosis – edoxaban Thrombus Reduction Imaging Study�
Patients with deep vein thrombosis are often treated with blood thinners such as heparin and warfarin. Patients taking warfarin require frequent blood testing, to make sure they are not taking too much or too little medication and to adjust the dose of warfarin if necessary. Edoxaban is taken by mouth, does not require frequent blood monitoring and is expected to have no significant interaction with foods or most medications. The purpose of this study is to compare edoxaban with warfarin to see if it is safe and effective in the treatment of DVT.

SAS115359: A Safety and Efficacy Study of Inhaled Fluticasone Propionate/Salmeterol Combination versus Inhaled Fluticasone Propionate in the Treatment of Adolescent and Adult Subjects with Asthma
The purpose of this study is to assess whether the risk of serious asthma-related events (asthma-related hospitalizations, endotracheal intubations, and deaths) in adolescents and adults (12 years of age and older) taking inhaled fluticasone propionate/salmeterol combination is the same as those taking inhaled fluticasone propionate alone.

Elixa (Evaluation of LIXisenatide in Acute coronary syndrome) A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, multicenter study to evaluate cardiovascular outcomes during treatment with lixisenatide in type 2 diabetic patients after an Acute Coronary Syndrome event
The primary objective of this study is to demonstrate that lixisenatide can reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality (composite endpoint of cardiovascular (CV) death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), non-fatal stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina) compared to placebo in type 2 diabetic patients who recently experienced an acute coronary syndrome (ACS) event.
