Read time: 1 mins
Published:1st Feb 2023

Idorsia announced that it has submitted a marketing authorisation application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for ACT 132577 (aprocitentan), Idorsia’s investigational, novel dual endothelin receptor antagonist, for the treatment of patients with resistant hypertension

The MAA includes data from a comprehensive clinical and non-clinical development program. In the Phase III registration study, PRECISION, aprocitentan showed statistically significant and clinically meaningful reduction in blood pressure (BP) which was maintained for up to 48 weeks when added to combination background antihypertensive therapy in patients with resistant hypertension. In PRECISION, aprocitentan was generally well tolerated with no major safety concerns. The most frequent adverse event with aprocitentan was mild-to-moderate edema/fluid retention.
