This study investigates the efficacy and safety of finerenone, compared with a placebo to reduce clinically important cardiovascular and kidney outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetes when added to the standard of care, which includes glucose-lowering therapies, and maximum-tolerated, labelled doses of either an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor or an angiotensin receptor blocker.
