This study is a proof-of-concept trial of vonafexor safety, its effects on kidney function in subjects with at risk of progression Alport syndrome.

Official Title

Vonafexor Fixed Dose-escalation Safety and Proof-of-concept Study in Patients With at Risk of Progression Alport Syndrome


This is a multicenter study and several clinical sites and countries will be involved.

This single arm, fixed dose escalation, open-label, non-randomized study will evaluate three dose levels of vonafexor on safety, tolerability and their effect on kidney function and renal biomarkers in 20 patients with AS at risk of progression.

The total duration of study for a participant will be up to 40 weeks and include a screening period, a treatment period of 24 weeks and a follow-up period of 12 weeks.
