Modifying chronic kidney disease progression with the mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist finerenone in patients with type 2 diabetes.

In patients with type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the most common cause of kidney failure. With its increasing prevalence and limited treatment options, CKD is a major contributor to the global burden of disease. Although recent guidelines for the control of hypertension and hyperglycaemia, as well as the use of renin-angiotensin system inhibitors and, more recently, sodium-glucose co-transporter-2 inhibitors, have improved outcomes for patients with CKD and diabetes, there is still a high residual risk of CKD progression and adverse cardiovascular events. In this review, we discuss the recently published FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD studies and FIDELITY prespecified individual patient analysis. Together, these studies have established finerenone, a novel non-steroidal mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, as an effective treatment for kidney and cardiovascular protection and welcome addition to the pillars of treatment to slow CKD progression in patients with type 2 diabetes.
