In recent years, many big pharmaceutical companies have invested significant amount of capital on the research and development of drugs for nephropathy. In March 2017, Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that it will initiate a Phase II clinical trial investigating IW-1973 in diabetic nephropathy. IW-1973 is an investigational soluble guanylate cyclase (sGC) stimulator which plays an important role in regulating diverse physiological processes such as blood flow, inflammation, fibrosis, and metabolism. The company expects that IW-1973 could generate annual peak sales of more than $5.0 billion, globally.

In 2013, AbbVie, Inc. initiated Phase III clinical trial of its investigational compound atrasentan for treatment of diabetic nephropathy. Atrasentan is a selective endothelin-A receptor antagonists, which antagonizes the effect of endothelin-l (ET-l), a peptide involved in constriction of blood vessels in the kidney.
