    Abstract
    Purpose
    Diabetes mellitus is a major risk factor for the development of heart failure. Sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 inhibitors have demonstrated consistent benefits in the reduction of hospitalization for HF in patients with DM. However, the pharmacological mechanism is not clear. To investigate the mechanisms of SGLT2 inhibitors in DM with HF, we performed target prediction and network analysis by a network pharmacology method.
    Methods
    We selected targets of SGLT2 inhibitors and DM status with HF from databases and studies. The “Drug-Target” and “Drug-Target-Disease” networks...
