Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation 2 Diabetes - BARI 2D


BARI 2D is a study of patients with type 2 diabetes with mild or stable cardiac symptoms designed to determine whether treatment targeted to attenuate insulin resistance can arrest or retard progression of coronary artery disease compared with treatment with an insulin-providing approach. It is also designed (2 x 2 factorial study design) to determine whether early revascularization compared with medical therapy in these patients reduces mortality and morbidity.
