Real-World Evidence for Decisions in Diabetes

LTMLE Workshop held in Copenhagen

On the 22nd and 23rd May 2023, the “LTMLE Workshop” organised by the REDDIE work package 4 (WP) took place in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Kindly hosted by the University of Copenhagen, the University of Padova, University of Ulm, University Of Leicester, and University of Gothenburg partners attended many interesting presentations given by the WP4 biostatistics team on the use of advanced statistical methods for estimating the efficacy of diabetes treatments using longitudinal data.

Specifically, the science behind the longitudinal targeted maximum likelihood estimation (LTMLE) method and its potential uses in the project were shared with the consortium. By employing the information collected in the REDDIE clinical registries, such methodology will give insight on the effect of second-line glucose-lowering agents on cardiovascular endpoints in the real world.

This was the first step towards great collaborations that will revolutionise the way effectiveness studies are done on real-world diabetes data.
