Treatment Study for Non-diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease (FIND-CKD)

The purpose of this study is to look at how well the new investigational drug works in participants with non-diabetic chronic kidney disease. An investigational drug is one that is not approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Additionally, finerenone is approved for use in patients with chronic kidney disease with diabetes, but this study will evaluate whether the new drug is safe for the participants with chonic kidney disease without diabetes and will determine how it affects the body.
