Details and patient eligibility


This study will look at the effects of CagriSema on cardiovascular events (for example heart attack and stroke) in people living with cardiovascular disease. Participants will either get CagriSema or a dummy medicine (also called "placebo") which has no effect on the body. Which treatment participants will get will be decided by chance. Participant's chance of getting CagriSema or placebo is the same. Participants will inject the study medicine once a week. The study medicine will be injected briefly with a thin needle, typically in the stomach, thighs or upper arms. The study will last for up to 4.5 years.

    1. Lifestyle intervention alone
    2. 1-3 marketed oral antidiabetic drugs (OADs) (metformin, α-glucosidase inhibitors (AGI), glinides, sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i), dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP4)-inhibitors, thiazolidinediones, or sulphonylureas (SU) as a single agent or in combination) according to local label
    3. Basal insulin alone or in combination with up to two marketed OADs, all according to local label

Exclusion criteria

  • Myocardial infarction, stroke, hospitalization for unstable angina pectoris or transient ischaemic attack within 60 days before screening
  • Planned coronary, carotid or peripheral artery revascularisation known on the day of screening
  • Heart failure classified as being in New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class IV at screening
  • Treatment with any glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist (RA) or a medication with GLP-1 activity within 90 days before screening
  • End stage renal disease defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 15 millileters per minutes per 1.73^2 (mL/min/1.73 m^2), as measured by the central laboratory at screening
  • Chronic or intermittent haemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis
