Exploratory analysis of the FIGARO-DKD study with finerenone, a non-steroidal, selective mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, indicated a reduction in renal outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D), as seen in the FIDELIO-DKD study / Analysis of the FIDELIO-DKD study highlighted that early reduction of urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) with finerenone reduced the risk of cardiovascular events and of disease progression of CKD, underpinning the importance of timely intervention in patients with CKD and T2D / Data from prespecified pooled analysis FIDELITY of more than 13,000 patients from the Phase III studies FIGARO-DKD and FIDELIO-DKD underscore the potential benefit of finerenone across the disease spectrum, and irrespective of concomitant treatment with SGLT2 inhibitors in patients with CKD and T2D
New data analyses of the comprehensive finerenone clinical trial program, including the vital Phase III studies FIGARO-DKD and FIDELIO-DKD and thepre-specified pooled analysis FIDELITY support the renal and cardiovascular (CV) benefits of finerenone, the firstnon-steroidal, picky mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonist, in cases with habitual order complaint (CKD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). Data from the analyses were presented at the American Society of Nephrology (ASN)’s Order Week 2021 in two oral donations and two late- breaking bills.
In the FIGARO-DKD study, presented at ESC Congress 2021 and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the prevalence of the first secondary endpoint, a compound of time to order failure, a sustained drop of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) ≥ 40 from birth over a period of at least four weeks, or renal death passed in 350 (9.5) cases in the finerenone arm and 395 (10.8) cases in the placebo arm; this hardly missed statistical significance (HR0.87 (95 CI0.76-1.01); p = 0.0689) over a median duration of follow-up of3.4 times. In the oral session presented at ASN’s Order week on an exploratory analysis of the FIGARO-DKD study data in cases with CKD stages 1 – 4 with moderate-to- oppressively elevated albuminuria, it was seen that finerenone reduced the threat for the ≥ 40 and ≥ 57 estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) order compound issues, which was generally harmonious with the benefit seen in FIDELIO-DKD. The effect of finerenone on the compound order issues was reflected by a 36 relative threat reduction of end- stage order complaint (ESKD). ESKD passed in0.9 of finerenone versus1.3 placebo donors (HR = 0.64; 95 CI0.41-0.995; p = 0.046).
An analysis of the FIDELIO-DKD study, presented as a late- breaking bill, estimated the association between urine albumin-to-creatinine rate (UACR) change and CV and renal protection in cases with CKD and T2D. Compared to FIGARO-DKD, FIDELIO-DKD included further cases with advanced habitual order complaint. The data demonstrate that finerenone reduced the threat of the CV compound outgrowth ( time to CV death,non-fatal MI, nonfatal stroke or heart failure hospitalization) and the order compound outgrowth ( time to order failure, sustained ≥ 40 drop in eGFR ≥ 4 weeks from birth, or renal death), early but also irrespective of a change in UACR from birth to month four.
“ Further requirements to be done to decelerate the progression of habitual order complaint (CKD) secondary to type 2 diabetes (T2D). It’s the most common cause of end- stage order complaint (ESKD) worldwide,” said Professor GeorgeL. Bakris, MD, Department of Medicine, American Heart Association Comprehensive Hypertension Center, University of Chicago Medicine, USA and top investigator of the FIDELIO-DKD trial. “ The results presented at ASN from FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD, and specifically from the FIDELITY pooled analysis of these trials, easily demonstrate the eventuality to ameliorate issues in cases through timely discovery and monitoring of the foremost signs of habitual order complaint. Also, they emphasize finerenone as a implicit effective treatment option to ameliorate cardiovascular and order issues across a broad range of cases, including those with early order damage and more advanced stages of CKD and T2D.”
Finerenone (BAY 94-8862) is anon-steroidal, picky mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonist that in preclinical studies has been shown to block dangerous goods of MR overactivation. In T2D, MR overactivation is allowed to contribute to CKD progression and cardiovascular damage which can be driven by metabolic, hemodynamic or seditious and fibrotic factors. The Phase III study program with finerenone, FINEOVATE, presently comprises four Phase III studies FIDELIO-DKD, FIGARO-DKD, FINEARTS-HF and FIND-CKD.
