Finerenone Approved in US as “Kerendia”

Bayer announced the FDA approval of 10mg and 20mg finerenone, branded as “Kerendia,” to reduce the risk of sustained eGFR decline, end-stage kidney disease, CV death, non-fatal MI, and hHF in adults with CKD associated with T2DM (see logo below). The approval of finerenone is based on the positive results of the FIDELIO-DKD study and the timing comes in-line with FENIX’s projection. Recall, results from FIDELIO-DKD were presented at Kidney Week in October 2020 and demonstrated an 18% RRR in the primary composite endpoint. Finerenone is currently under review in the EU, China, and multiple other countries worldwide. FENIX will conduct a full label analysis of finerenone in the coming days once the label is available.
