Finerenone in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease and Type 2 Diabetes by Sodium–Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitor Treatment: The FIDELITY Analysis
Diabetes Care 2022; online ahead of print doi: 10.2337/dc22-0294
In the FIDELITY analysis, finerenone reduced the risk of cardiovascular and kidney outcomes compared with placebo. Concomitant treatment with a sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) did not modify the observed benefits.
FIDELITY pooled populations from the FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD studies in order to examine the effect of finerenone and interaction with SGLT2i use on prespecified outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes (T2D). In both trial, use of SGLT2i was permitted at baseline, as was initiation of SGLT2i at any time during the trial.
