mr. ye yuxiang, ceo of salubris, said that the introduction of enarodustat will effectively expand salubris's superior product line and quickly enrich innovative products in the field of chronic disease, and we will make our best effort to promote enarodustat to be marketed in china as soon as possible and provide more excellent treatment options for patients with renal anemia in china.

about enarodustat

enarodustat is an oral active hypoxia-inducible factor prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor (hif-phi) developed by jt and has a global patent. the developed indication is renal anemia. at the same time, the "oxygen sensing mechanism" which enarodustat is based on won the nobel prize in physiology or medicine in 2019.

renal anemia is one of the most common complications in patients with chronic kidney disease (ckd). the prevalence rate of ckd in china accounts for about 10.8% (about 120 million people) of adults, and more than 50% of them are complicated with anemia. [1] at present, the standard treatment method of renal anemia is erythropoietin (epo) substitute drugs (such as erythropoiesis stimulant) combined with intravenous iron and subcutaneous injection.

compared with the existing treatment methods, as a new small molecule oral preparation, enarodustat has a clear mechanism of improving anemia, which can not only promote the production of endogenous erythropoietin, but also improve the utilization of iron. jt submitted its marketing application in japan in november 2019 and then obtained the approval.
