CinCor Pharma Announces Publication in the New England Journal of Medicine of Phase 2 BrigHtn Data on Selective Aldosterone Synthase Inhibitor Baxdrostat in Treatment-Resistant Hypertension
Clinically significant and dose-dependent reduction in blood pressure with baxdrostat
Highly selective mechanism of action with no meaningful impact on cortisol supports first-in-class potential
Potential treatment for the 10-12 million patients in the US alone with treatment-resistant hypertension
“Publication of the Phase 2 BrigHtn data in the world-renowned
The BrigHtn trial was a Phase 2 randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, dose-ranging clinical trial designed to assess the safety and efficacy of baxdrostat in subjects who have not achieved their target blood pressure despite receiving three or more antihypertensive agents at their maximally tolerated doses, one of which must be a diuretic. The trial evaluated three active doses of baxdrostat (0.5 mg, 1.0 mg, and 2.0 mg) compared to placebo control in 275 patients randomized across all four dosing cohorts, with 248 patients completing. The primary endpoint of BrigHtn was the change in mean seated systolic blood pressure from randomization to trial end after 12 weeks of treatment.
