Trulicity® (dulaglutide): Effect on Blood Pressure
Treatment with dulaglutide was associated with a reduction in systolic BP compared with baseline.
phase 2, multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled
study assessed the effects of once-weekly dulaglutide 1.5 mg and
dulaglutide 0.75 mg on BP in 755 patients who had T2DM with or
without hypertension. The primary endpoint was change from baseline
at 16 weeks in mean 24-hour SBP.1
treatment effects of dulaglutide on SBP were evident at 4 weeks.1
comparison with placebo, dulaglutide 1.5 mg significantly reduced
24-hour SBP by approximately 3 mmHg at 16 and 26 weeks.1
1.5 mg and dulaglutide 0.75 mg both demonstrated noninferiority to
placebo in LSM change from baseline in 24-hour SBP.1
1.5 mg also demonstrated superiority to placebo in lowering SBP at
both 16 (p≤ 0.001) and 26 weeks (p=.002).1
change in SBP from baseline to 16 weeks with dulaglutide 0.75 mg
achieved the primary objective of noninferiority to placebo (p<
from baseline in ambulatory SBP and DBP can be seen in Table
