Bardoxolone methyl

Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Drug Names(s): RTA 402, CDDO-Me

Description: Bardoxolone is a novel, oral Antioxidant Inflammation Modulator (AIM) that regulates NF-kB and STAT3, transcription factors implicated in both inflammation and cancer.

Bardoxolone potently induces Nrf2, a transcription factor that is a well-validated target for chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nrf2 activates over 250 antioxidant and detoxifications genes within the cell, thereby modulating ROS-mediated endothelial dysfunction and structural remodeling in the kidney.

Bardoxolone has demonstrated significant nephroprotective activity in animal models of kidney injury. In preclinical toxicology studies, reductions in serum creatinine (SC) have been observed across multiple species. These effects on SC are independent of tubular secretion and creatinine production and thus likely reflect an increase in GFR.

Deal Structure: Bardoxolone and a number of related drugs with the same mechanism of action were licensed by Reata from Dartmouth College and The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center.
