Finerenone: From the Mechanism of Action to Clinical Use in Kidney Disease.

Pharmaceuticals 2024 March 27
Diabetic kidney disease is a frequent microvascular complication of diabetes and is currently the leading cause of chronic kidney disease and end-stage kidney disease worldwide. Although the prevalence of other complications of diabetes is falling, the number of diabetic patients with end-stage kidney disease in need of kidney replacement therapy is rising. In addition, these patients have extremely high cardiovascular risk. It is more than evident that there is a high unmet treatment need in patients with diabetic kidney disease.
