New AZD9977 + Dapa Ph2b Trial in HF+CKD (MIRACLE)
Here is a brief preview of this blast: A CT.gov record has been observed for a new Ph2b trial evaluating AZD9977, a novel mineralocorticoid receptor modulator (MCR), as add-on to dapagliflozin in patients with HF and CKD. The trial initiation is in-line with AZ's commentary from its Q2 '20 earnings call (previous FENIX insight). Of note, John McMurray is the PI for the MIRACLE trial. McMurray previously served as the PI for DAPA-HF and a member of the executive committee for DAPA-CKD. Below, FENIX provides an overview of the MIRACLE trial as well as why AZ’s pursuit of accelerated approval for AZD9977 could make sense.
