Esaxerenone (MINNEBRO™)-a novel oral, non-steroidal, selective mineralocorticoid receptor blocker-is being developed by Daiichi Sankyo for the treatment of hypertension and diabetic nephropathies. In January 2019, based on positive results from a phase III trial conducted in Japan in patients with essential hypertension, esaxerenone received marketing approval in Japan for the treatment of hypertension. This article summarizes the milestones in the development of esaxerenone leading to this first global approval for the treatment of hypertension.
