Evaluation of cardio-metabolic effects of Incretin-based therapies in type 2 diabetes
Prof. Paul is leading this major research project to evaluate the cardio-metabolic effects of GLP-1 receptor agonists and DPP-4 inhibitors. The initial findings from this study have already gained attention from the international research community with considerable media coverage, and he was invited at international clinical conferences to present the initial findings. The first study on the possible association of treatment with GLP1 RA Exenatide with cardiovascular risk, in comparison to treatment with insulin, has been published in Cardiovascular Diabetology (2576 accesses since published in January 2015).
