A Diabetes Outcome Progression Trial. A 4-year Phase-4 trial comparing early treatment of type-2 diabetics with rosiglitazone (Avandia), metformin or glyburide (a sulfonylurea in glucose control) for delay or prevention of diabetes complications—e.g., kidney disease, etc.

Conclusion
Lower failure rate at 5 years: 15% with rosiglitazone vs. 21% with metformin and 34% with glyburide; a highly significant risk reduction of 32% for rosiglitazone compared with metformin, and 63% compared with glyburide. Positive results notwithstanding, rosiglitazone has been pulled from various markets due to possible increased risk of heart attacks.
