Finerenone is a Small Molecule owned by Bayer, and is involved in 46 clinical trials, of which 36 were completed, 6 are ongoing, and 4 are planned.

Finerenone (BAY-948862) is a mineralocorticoid receptor (MR, aldosterone) antagonist. Aldosterone inhibitors act as diuretics and lowers blood pressure by preventing reab-sorption of salts, reducing blood volume, and antagonizing the action of aldosterone, a component of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system). They inhibit the binding of aldosterone to mineralocorticoid receptors in both epithelial and nonepithelial tissues. In the distal convoluted renal tubule, they promote diuresis and reduce potassium excretion and inhibits aldosterone. Aldosterone inhibitors reduce the swelling and water build-up caused by heart failure.

The revenue for Finerenone is expected to reach a total of $11.1bn through 2038. This change impacts the valuation of this asset and is an important factor to understand the current value of the drug in a clinical process. View the complete picture with the Finerenone NPV Report.

Finerenone Overview

Finerenone (Kerendia) is a nonsteroidal mineralocorticoid. It is formulated as film coated tablets for oral route of administration. Kerendia is indicated to reduce the risk of sustained eGFR decline, end stage kidney disease, cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, and hospitalization for heart failure in adult patients with chronic kidney disease associated with type 2 diabetes. Kerendia is indicated for the treatment of chronic kidney disease (stage 3 and 4 with albuminuria) associated with type 2 diabetes in adults. Kerendia is indicated for the treatment of chronic kidney disease with type 2 diabetes in adults, excluding patients with end-stage renal disease or on dialysis. Kerendia is indicated for the treatment of chronic kidney disease (CKD) associated with type 2 diabetes (T2D) in adults, to reduce the risk of sustained eGFR decline and end-stage kidney disease.

Finerenone (BAY-948862) is under development for the treatment of diabetic nephropathy, diabetic retinopathy, chronic heart failure and chronic kidney disease, proteinuria, glomerulonephritis, hypertension in patients with type 2 diabetes. The drug candidate is administered orally as a tablet. It is a new molecular entity and acts by targeting non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor (MR).

It was under development for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

GlobalData, the leading provider of industry intelligence, provided the underlying data, research, and analysis used to produce this article.

To create this model, GlobalData takes into account factors including patent law, known and projected regulatory approval processes, cash flows, potential applicable patients, drug margins, company expenses, and pricing estimates. Combining these data points with GlobalData’s world class analysis creates high value models that companies can use to help in evaluation processes for each drug or company.

The rNPV method integrates the probability of a drug reaching a clinical stage into the cash flow at that time, which provides a more accurate rNPV, as it considers the probability that the drug never makes it through the clinical pathway to commercialization. GlobalData’s rNPV model uses proprietary likelihood of approval (LoA)and phase transition success rate(PTSR) data for the indication in the highest development stage, which can be found on GlobalData’s Pharmaceutical Intelligence Center.
