Brief Summary:
The study is designed to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and transformation within the human body of INV-202 investigational drug in the treatment of adult participants with a diagnosis of Diabetic Kidney Disease due to either Type 1 diabetes mellitus or Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetic Kidney Disease Drug: INV-202 Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:

This is a Phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled, dose ranging, multicenter study designed to assess the efficacy, safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of INV-202 for the treatment of adult participants with a diagnosis of DKD due to either Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) or Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) (diagnosed ≥1 year) who are on a stable anti diabetic medication regimen for ≥4 months prior with a HbA1c <9.5%. Approximately 240 participants (80/arm) will be randomized to 1 of 3 treatment arms in a 1:1:1 ratio: INV 202 10 mg, INV-202 25 mg, or placebo. The assigned study treatment will be taken once daily (QD), for 16 weeks.

Due to the high expected screen failure rates, participants may be pre-screened at sites with an approved pre-screening ICF.

Each participant will be allowed 1 retest during the screening period if they fail screening and 1 re-screening on a case by case basis with approval from the Worldwide medical monitors.

Study participation will last approximately 22 weeks and includes a Screening Period (up to 4 weeks), a Study Treatment Period with 16 weeks of daily study treatment, and a Safety Follow-Up Visit consisting of a phone call 2 weeks after the End of Treatment Visit (Week [W]18) to allow reporting of any adverse events following withdrawal of the study drug.

Any participant who withdraws before completing treatment will be requested to return for an Early Termination Visit, at which time the procedures normally scheduled for the W16 visit will be conducted.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in UACR from baseline to W16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Measure of UACR at W16 in comparison to baseline to evaluate the effect of INV-202 in participants with diabetic kidney disease (DKD)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in urine protein to creatinine ratio (UPCR) from baseline to W16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Measure of UPCR at W16 in comparison to baseline to evaluate the effect of INV-202 in participants with diabetic kidney disease (DKD)

  2. Change in eGFR using serum creatinine and the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) formula from baseline to W16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Measure of eGFR using creatinine and CKD-EPI formula at W16 in comparison to baseline to evaluate the effect of INV-202 in participants with diabetic kidney disease (DKD)

  3. Change in eGFR using cystatin C and the CKD-EPI formula from baseline to W16 [ Time Frame: 16 weeks ]
    Measure of eGFR using cystatin C and CKD-EPI formula at W16 in comparison to baseline to evaluate the effect of INV-202 in participants with diabetic kidney disease (DKD)

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Male and female participants ≥18 years of age.
  2. Able and willing to give informed consent and to comply with scheduled visits and trial procedures.
  3. A diagnosis of DKD due to either T1DM or T2DM (diagnosed for ≥1 year)
  4. On a stable anti-diabetic medication regimen for ≥4 months prior to randomization with a hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) <9.5%.

    1. Participants with T1DM may not be on any glucose lowering medications beyond insulin.
    2. Participants with T2DM may be on more than 1 anti diabetic medication regimen (eg, SGLT2 inhibitor, insulin, or other anti-diabetic medication regimen).
    3. HbA1c should have been performed within the last 4 months prior to randomization.
  5. Participants must be on a stable dose of ACEi or ARB for ≥4 months prior to randomization and expected to remain stable for the 4-month treatment period.
  6. Participants taking finerenone (not required), on a stable dose for ≥4 months prior to randomization.
  7. Presence of albuminuria with a UACR >100 mg/g and <3000 mg/g at screening.
