Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We evaluated effectiveness of exenatide in 81 unselected patients and compared the results with clinical trials. Patients achieved a similar reduction in A1C and lost more weight than patients in the clinical trials. Thirty-seven (46%) were treated off-label. Exenatide was effective on and off-label in this unselected patient group.
