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.

Nussbaum, Dillenbourg, Dimitriadis and Roschelle (2013), suggest four advantages to using orchestration: (1) it allows the teaching-learning process to be viewed as a whole, taking into account specific contexts; (2) it improves efficiency by allowing teachers to work with tried and trusted resources, (3) it improves adoptability, allowing the adoption of new resources to be presented to the teacher in a well-organized, coherent and attractive fashion; (4) it improves adaptability, acknowledging the fact that the teaching process is often dependent on what happens in real time in the classroom.
