April 7, 2021

Chinook Therapeutics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of precision medicines for kidney diseases, today announced that the first patient has been dosed in the AFFINITY Study, a phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of atrasentan, a potent and selective inhibitor of the endothelin A receptor, in patients with proteinuric glomerular disease who are at risk of progressive loss of renal function.

“Initiation of the phase 2 AFFINITY Study is an important step in evaluating atrasentan across multiple proteinuric glomerular diseases for which there are currently limited treatment options,” said Alan Glicklich, M.D., chief medical officer of Chinook. “Atrasentan’s proteinuria-lowering, anti-fibrotic and anti-inflammatory properties have the potential to provide therapeutic benefit in a variety of chronic kidney diseases.

Data generated in the AFFINITY Study will help inform the development strategy for atrasentan in these additional indications in parallel to our phase 3 ALIGN Study in IgA nephropathy.”
