This analysis includes (1) a replication of a protocol-based assessment (PBA) of an investigation on acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and heart failure following saxagliptin or sitagliptin use in comparison to long-acting insulin, pioglitazone, and second-generation sulfonylureas in the Sentinel Distributed Database. It further includes (2) an analysis with data that were unavailable at the time of the PBA.
