The company forecasts an addressable US patient market that comprises 90% of the total Friedreich’s population of 5,000 based on a broad label covering patients aged 16 and older.
Advisory committee unanimously votes against bardoxolone for Alport syndrome, unconvinced drug slows progression of chronic kidney disease and concerned about safety signals suggesting it could make the disease worse. However, panel offers Reata suggestions for a better-designed trial.
Advisory committee will vet FDA argument that even though the chronic kidney disease drug met its endpoints, the trial design didn’t allow Reata to demonstrate that bardoxolone slows decline in kidney function. Safety concerns and COVID-19 trial disruptions also likely to prove worrisome.
