Results from the AMPLIFY clinical trial, the company's Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating tenapanor's efficacy in combination with phosphate binders, are currently expected to be announced in the third quarter of 2019.
Results from the PHREEDOM clinical trial, the company's second Phase 3 clinical trial evaluating tenapanor as a monotherapy treatment for hyperphosphatemia in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who are on dialysis, are currently expected to be announced in the fourth quarter of 2019.
5 Biggest New Drug Approvals Potentially on the Way in 2019....August 19, 2019
Small biotech Ardelyx should be only a few weeks away from some big news. The FDA is scheduled to announce an approval decision for tenapanor in treating irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C) by Sept. 12, 2019.
EvaluatePharma expects that the drug could pull in nearly $700 million annually by 2024 if it's approved. Ardelyx hopes that the IBS-C is only the first of two approved indications for tenapanor. The company is also evaluating the drug in a phase 3 clinical study for treating hyperphosphatemia in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) who are on dialysis.
FDA approvals for lumateperone and tenapanor would definitely have huge impacts for Intra-Cellular Therapies and Ardelyx. Neither company has an approved product on the market yet.
