Program Description

The purpose of this Limited Competition Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to continue follow-up of the Diabetes Prevention Program Outcomes Study (DPPOS) cohort through a cooperative agreement. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) was a multi-center controlled clinical trial examining the efficacy of treatments to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes in a population at high risk. The DPP demonstrated that either lifestyle change or the drug metformin could reduce the development of type 2 diabetes by 58% and 31%, respectively, compared with placebo. Following the end of DPP, the DPP cohort was enrolled in the DPPOS to determine the long-term effects of the DPP interventions on further diabetes development and microvascular complications. The primary purpose of this FOA is to continue follow-up of the DPPOS cohort to examine the effectiveness of early metformin treatment on the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
