About Ardelyx, Inc.
Ardelyx is focused on enhancing the lives of people with cardiorenal diseases by developing first-in-class medicines that matter. Ardelyx's cardiorenal pipeline includes the Phase 3 development of tenapanor for the treatment of hyperphosphatemia in people with CKD on dialysis, and RDX013, a potassium secretagogue program for the potential treatment of high potassium, or hyperkalemia, a problem among certain patients with kidney and/or heart disease. On September 3, 2019, the company reported positive data from AMPLIFY, a pivotal Phase 3 study investigating tenapanor in a combination with phosphate binders in patients with chronic kidney disease on dialysis whose hyperphosphatemia was not previously controlled with binders alone. The study successfully met the primary endpoint and all key secondary endpoints, including demonstrating a statistically significant mean reduction in serum phosphorus from baseline to the end of the treatment period. On September 12, 2019, Ardelyx received approval of IBSRELA (tenapanor) for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome with constipation (IBS-C). To efficiently bring its treatments to market, Ardelyx is pursuing strategic collaborations for IBSRELA for IBS-C and tenapanor for hyperphosphatemia in certain territories. Ardelyx has established agreements with Kyowa Kirin Company Limited in Japan, Fosun Pharma in China and Knight Therapeutics in Canada.
