Figure 2

Network of clinical trials about GLP-1 RAs and other hypoglycemic drugs or placebo in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Lines connect the interventions that have been studied in head-to-head (direct) comparisons in the eligible RCTs. The width of the lines represents the cumulative number of RCTs for each pairwise comparison and the size of every node is proportional to the number of randomized participants (sample size). EX5BID: exenatide 5 μg twice daily; EX10BID: exenatide 10 μg twice daily; EX2QW: exenatide 2 mg once weekly; LIR0.6: liraglutide 0.6 mg once daily; LIR0.9: liraglutide 0.9 mg once daily; LIR1.2: liraglutide 1.2 mg once daily; LIR1.8: liraglutide 1.8 mg once daily; SU: sulfonylureas; TZD: thiazolidinediones; Met: metformin.
