Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The First Occurrence of the Composite Endpoint of Cardiovascular Death, Non-fatal Myocardial Infarction, Non Fatal Stroke, or Hospitalization for Heart Failure. [ Time Frame: From randomization up until the first occurrence of the CV composite endpoint, or censoring at the end of the study, with an average study duration of 41 months. ]
    Number of participants with the first occurrence of the primary cardiovascular (CV) composite outcome, CV death, non-fatal myocardial infarction (MI), non-fatal stroke, or hospitalization for heart failure were reported as descriptive result.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The First Occurrence of the Composite Endpoint of Onset of Kidney Failure, a Sustained Decrease of eGFR ≥40% From Baseline Over at Least 4 Weeks, or Renal Death. [ Time Frame: From randomization up until the first occurrence of the renal composite endpoint, or censoring at the end of the study, with an average study duration of 41 months. ]
    Number of participants with first occurrence of the composite endpoint of onset of kidney failure, a sustained decrease of eGFR ≥40% from baseline over at least 4 weeks, or renal death were reported as descriptive result.

  2. All-cause Hospitalization [ Time Frame: From randomization up until the first occurrence of the hospitalization due to any cause, or censoring at the end of study, with an average study duration of 41 months ]
    Number of participants with first occurrence of a hospitalization event were reported as descriptive result.

  3. All-cause Mortality [ Time Frame: From randomization up until death due to any cause, or censoring at the end of the study, with an average study duration of 41 months ]
    Number of participants with death due to any cause were reported as descriptive result. Number of participants with outcome death reported here includes deaths occurred after randomization until the end of the study visit. Deaths after end of study visit are not included in this table.

  4. Change in Urinary Albumin-to-creatine Ratio (UCAR) From Baseline to Month 4 [ Time Frame: From baseline up until Month 4 ]
    First morning void urine samples were collected to evaluate the urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR). Month 4 was the visit closest to day 120 within a time window of 120 ± 30 days after randomization. If no measurements were available in this time window, the participant was excluded from this analysis. Ratio of UACR at Month 4 to UACR at baseline is reported as the change.

  5. The First Occurrence of the Composite Endpoint of Onset of Kidney Failure, a Sustained Decrease in eGFR of ≥57% From Baseline Over at Least 4 Weeks, or Renal Death [ Time Frame: From randomization up until the first occurrence of the renal composite endpoint, or censoring at the end of the study, with an average study duration of 41 months ]
    Number of participants with first occurrence of the renal composite outcome, onset of kidney failure, a sustained decrease in eGFR of ≥57% from baseline over at least 4 weeks, or renal death were reported as descriptive result.
