In February 2014 the US Food and Drug Administration requested clinical trial data from AstraZeneca’s drug saxagliptin (marketed as Onglyza and Kombiglyze XR), to investigate a possible association between use of the type 2 diabetes drug and heart failure. Onglyza (approved by the FDA in 2009) and Kombiglyze XR (saxagliptin and metformin; cleared in 2010) were co-developed by AstraZeneca and Bristol-Myers Squibb as part of the companies' diabetes joint venture.
