Notes to the editor

About aprocitentan

Aprocitentan is Idorsia's once-daily, orally active, dual endothelin receptor

antagonist, which inhibits the binding of ET-1 to ET(A) and ET(B) receptors. In

May 2022, Idorsia announced positive top-line results of the Phase 3 PRECISION

study with aprocitentan for the treatment of patients with resistant

hypertension. Detailed results were published in The Lancet and presented as a

Late-Breaking Science presentation during the American Heart Association (AHA)

Scientific Sessions in November 2022. More details and commentary can be found

in the dedicated press release (

events/media-release-details?newsId=2869821) and an investor webcast


2022) featuring Prof. Markus Schlaich, an investigator in PRECISION.

On March 19, 2024, aprocitentan was approved as TRYVIO in the US, with

availability planned for H2 2024. On April 25, 2024, Idorsia received a positive

opinion for aprocitentan (as JERAYGO(TM)) from the Committee for Medicinal Products

for Human Use (CHMP) as a treatment of resistant hypertension. A CHMP positive

opinion is one of the final steps before marketing authorization can be granted

by the European Commission; a final decision is expected approximately two

months after publication of the CHMP opinion.
