Aims: No meta-analysis is available which has summarized and holistically analyzed the efficacy and safety of evogliptin. We undertook this meta-analysis to address this gap in knowledge Methods: Electronic databases were searched for RCTs involving diabetes patients receiving evogliptin in intervention arm and placebo/active comparator in control arm. Primary outcome was to evaluate changes in HbA1c. Secondary outcomes were to evaluate alterations in fasting glucose, postprandial glucose, lipids, insulin resistance, patients achieving glycemic targets of HbA1c <7% and <6.5%, and adverse events. Results: From initially screened 57 articles, data from six RCTs involving 887 patients was analyzed [three having sitagliptin/linagliptin as active comparator; three having placebo in control group]. Evogliptin was noninferior to sitagliptin/linagliptin regarding HbA1c reduction at 12 weeks [mean difference (MD) -0.06%; 95%CI: -0.23–0.11%; P = 0.48] and 24 weeks (MD 0.04%; 95%CI: -0.11–0.19%; P = 0.60) follow-up. Evogliptin was superior to placebo regarding HbA1c reduction at 12-weeks (MD -0.57%; 95%CI: -0.62– -0.52%; P < 0.001) and 24 weeks (MD -0.28%; 95%CI: -0.47 – -0.09%; P = 0.004). Evogliptin was noninferior to sitagliptin/linagliptin regarding patients achieving HbA1c <7% and <6.5% at 12 weeks and 24 weeks follow-up. Total adverse events [Risk ratio (RR) 0.98; 95% CI: 0.72–1.32; P = 0.89] and severe adverse events (RR 0.65; 95% CI: 0.25–1.67; P = 0.37) were not significantly different among groups. Patients receiving evogliptin did not have increased symptomatic (RR 0.46; 95% CI: 0.10–2.16; P = 0.32) and asymptomatic (RR 1.09; 95% CI: 0.61–1.97; P = 0.77) hypoglycaemia. Conclusion: Evogliptin is well tolerated and has good glycemic efficacy over 6 months use for T2DM management
