Diabetic nephropathy (DN), also referred to as diabetic kidney disease, is a common complication of diabetes. Current standard of care fails to halt the frequent progression of DN to kidney disease and, ultimately, kidney failure—a condition associated with severe morbidity / mortality and high costs to patients, payers, and healthcare systems. As a result, key opinion leaders indicate that efficacious therapies for DN are a major unmet need, and they weigh in on the anticipated nephroprotective effects that endothelin receptor antagonists, mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists, and SGLT-2 inhibitor may offer. These therapies represent the first potentially disease-modifying therapies, should they prove efficacious and safe. The increasing prevalence of DN, exacerbated by the dynamics between clinicians seeking to prescribe new, premium-priced therapies and payers seeking to control costs among an already expensive population, will help shape the changing DN market over the next ten years.

Questions answered

  • Will the inclusion of cardiovascular endpoints in the clinical trials for select therapies be a competitive advantage once commercially available?
  • How do KOLs view the different mechanisms of action of the different therapies in early- and late-phase clinical development?
  • What are the greatest remaining unmet needs in DN? Which drugs in development will fulfill these unmet needs?
  • What market access and reimbursement challenges will the emerging therapies face in the G7? How will these challenges influence their uptake?
