Over a median of 29 months, the primary outcome of death or a major cardiovascular event occurred in 632 patients. This presentation will describe the clinical predictors of the primary cardiovascular composite outcome in this extremely high risk population.

The multivariable analyses include standard cardiovascular and diabetes clinical variables (e.g. past CV history, history of diabetes complications e.g. neuropathy), metabolic and renal plasma and urinary biomarkers (e.g. HbA1c, eGFR, urinary albumin creatinine ratio) and novel biomarkers (including high-sensitivity troponin and natriuretic peptides) in this population.
