Notes to the editor
Aprocitentan is an orally active dual endothelin receptor antagonist, which is being investigated for patients whose hypertension is uncontrolled despite the use of three or more antihypertensive drugs.
In June 2018, Idorsia initiated PRECISION, a multi-center, double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized, parallel-group, Phase 3 study to demonstrate the antihypertensive effect of aprocitentan when added to standard of care in patients with resistant hypertension. Idorsia, in consultation with regulatory agencies, has designed a single study which will efficiently address both the short-term efficacy of aprocitentan and the durability of its effects in long-term treatment.
Patients with a history of resistant hypertension will undergo a thorough screening and run-in period. This will confirm the diagnosis of resistant hypertension by excluding pseudo or apparent resistant hypertension. During the screening period, the patient’s background antihypertensive therapies will be transitioned to a standardized fixed combination of a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine), an angiotensin receptor blocker (valsartan), and a diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide).
Patients with true resistant hypertension will then be randomized to receive aprocitentan 12.5 mg, 25 mg, or placebo once-daily. The study consists of 3 sequential treatment periods. The first is a double-bind treatment period designed to demonstrate the effect of aprocitentan on blood pressure at Week 4, compared to placebo. Patients then enter a treatment period where they are treated with aprocitentan 25 mg for 32 weeks. This is followed by a double-blind, randomized withdrawal treatment period where patients will remain either on aprocitentan 25 mg or switch to placebo for 12 weeks. The latter treatment period is designed to demonstrate the durability of the blood pressure lowering effect of aprocitentan. Patients will then enter a 30-day safety follow-up period.
From the initial screened patient population, at least 600 patients will be randomized and at least 300 patients are expected to complete the study. The study will be conducted in approximately 100 sites in around 20 countries.
In December 2017, Janssen Biotech, Inc. entered into a collaboration agreement with Idorsia to jointly develop and commercialize aprocitentan and any of its derivative compounds or products. Both parties have joint development rights over aprocitentan. Idorsia will oversee the Phase 3 development and regulatory submission. The costs will be shared equally between both partners. Janssen will oversee the Phase 3 development and submission for any additional indications.

Selatogrel is a highly-selective P2Y12 receptor antagonist developed for acute coronary syndrome.
Two Phase 2 studies in patients with stable coronary artery disease and acute myocardial infarction, respectively, have met their pharmacodynamic objectives of significantly inhibiting platelet aggregation. Subcutaneous administration of selatogrel 8 mg and 16 mg has demonstrated a rapid onset of action, within 15 minutes, with the height of its effect extending over 4-8 hours, depending on the dose. The predefined extent of platelet aggregation inhibition was seen in at least 89% of the patients in both chronic and acute situations across doses. Selatogrel was safe and well tolerated in both studies and there were no treatment-emergent serious bleeds. Idorsia is now preparing for the end of Phase 2 meetings with health authorities where it will discuss a Phase 3 study.
