Advisory committee unanimously votes against bardoxolone for Alport syndrome, unconvinced drug slows progression of chronic kidney disease and concerned about safety signals suggesting it could make the disease worse. However, panel offers Reata suggestions for a better-designed trial.
Advisory committee will vet FDA argument that even though the chronic kidney disease drug met its endpoints, the trial design didn’t allow Reata to demonstrate that bardoxolone slows decline in kidney function. Safety concerns and COVID-19 trial disruptions also likely to prove worrisome.
Reata is moving ahead with commercial plans as its potential first-in-class Nrf2 activator, bardoxolone methyl, meets primary and secondary endpoints in a first-year interim analysis of the Phase III CARDINAL study in patients with Alport syndrome, an inherited form of chronic kidney disease (CKD).
