Alport Syndrome Research Studies
The ATHENA observational study conducted by Regulus Therapeutics sought to learn more about the natural history of Alport syndrome. No medications were administered as part of the study.
The CARDINAL study is an interventional Phase 2/3 study conducted by Reata Pharmaceuticals to test the effectiveness of the drug bardoxolone methyl in treating chronic kidney disease caused by Alport syndrome. Final data from Phase 2 will be available in the second half of 2017. However, based on positive initial data, screening for Phase 3 was initiated in July 2017. Phase 3 is a double-blind placebo-controlled study.
The HERA study is an interventional Phase 2 clinical study conducted by Regulus Therapeutics. The study will evaluate the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug called RG-012. The study is expected to begin recruiting in fall 2017.
