The incidence of AEs leading to discontinuation was low and similar across treatment groups (3.5% for canagliflozin total and 5.2% for placebo). Most AEs were assessed by the investigator as mild to moderate in intensity, and the overall incidence of AEs was balanced across treatment arms. Adverse events of genital mycotic infections in men and women, and increased frequency of urination (pollakiuria) were more common with canagliflozin 100 mg and 300 mg compared to placebo in men and women; these specific adverse events were generally mild or moderate in intensity and did not lead to discontinuation. Rates of urinary tract infections and hypoglycemia were low and similar across groups.These data were included in the New Drug Application (NDA) Janssen submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) submitted to the European Medicines Agency seeking approval for the use of canagliflozin for the treatment of type 2 diabetes announced on May 31, 2012 and June 26, 2012, respectively.
