Pavilion Energy, QatarEnergy And Chevron Launch GHG Reporting Methodology For Delivered LNG Cargoes




Singapore/Doha/San Ramon, California, 17 November 2021 – Pavilion Energy Trading & Supply Pte. Ltd.1 (“Pavilion Energy”), QatarEnergy and Chevron U.S.A. Inc (Singapore branch) (“Chevron”) today announced they have jointly published a quantification and reporting methodology to produce a statement of greenhouse gas emissions (SGE) for delivered LNG cargoes.

This is the first such published methodology that will be applied to sales and purchase agreements (SPAs), specifically the executed SPAs2 by Pavilion Energy with QatarEnergy and Chevron. Intended for wide adoption, the methodology provides a calculation and reporting framework for greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions from wellhead-to-discharge terminal, based on industry standards.

The SGE Methodology was developed by a team of technical specialists representing Pavilion Energy, QatarEnergy and Chevron, supported by global sustainability consultancy Environmental Resources Management (ERM). It aims to create a common standard for the measurement, reporting and verification of the GHG emissions associated with producing and delivering an LNG cargo to drive greater transparency and enable stronger action on GHG reduction measures.

Independent academic experts, commercial institutions and verification bodies have reviewed the SGE Methodology. It complements key industry efforts being developed in parallel, specifically the Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) and GHG Neutral Framework by the International Group of LNG Importers’ (GIIGNL).

Bayer extends clinical development program for finerenone with Phase III study in children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease



For children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease (CKD), as for adults, the unmet need is high for new treatments to delay disease progression and preserve kidney function / The Phase III study FIONA will investigate the effect of finerenone in pediatric patients with CKD and severely increased proteinuria

Berlin, November 15, 2021 – Bayer announced today the initiation of the FIONA study, a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled Phase III study, to investigate the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics (PK/PD) of finerenone, in addition to standard of care, for the treatment of pediatric patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and severely increased proteinuria. The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate superiority of finerenone in addition to an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor or an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) over placebo in reducing urine protein excretion in these patients. The primary outcome measure is the change in urine protein creatinine ratio (UPCR) from baseline to 6 months.

“Chronic kidney disease is a rare but devastating condition affecting children across the age spectrum. Despite some progress achieved through previous research efforts, children with this condition continue to experience disease progression and proteinuria – an important, modifiable risk factor for kidney function decline. New treatments are needed to target this risk factor whilst working synergistically with current therapies,” said Dr. Franz Schaefer, Professor of Pediatrics and Chief of the Pediatric Nephrology Division at Heidelberg University Hospital. “If successful, insights from this study could be of great significance to children living with chronic kidney disease and their families.”

Proteinuria is an important modifiable risk factor for CKD progression in children. Aldosterone-mediated activation of mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) in the kidney drive the downward spiral by promoting tissue inflammation and injury. Finerenone is an investigational, non-steroidal, selective MR antagonist that in preclinical studies has been shown to block harmful effects of MR overactivation, which is thought to contribute to CKD progression and cardiovascular damage.

Finerenone has been investigated in a broad population of adult patients with stages 1-4 CKD and type 2 diabetes (T2D) across two completed Phase III studies: FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD. In these studies, finerenone demonstrated benefits on kidney and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with CKD and T2D. Finerenone demonstrated a consistent safety profile across studies. FIDELITY, a pre-specified pooled analysis of the FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD studies to evaluate the occurrence of progression of kidney disease as well as fatal and nonfatal CV events in more than 13,000 patients with CKD and T2D, evaluated the potential benefit of finerenone across the disease spectrum.

“In the largest Phase III clinical trial program to date in chronic kidney disease and type 2 diabetes, which included more than 13,000 adult patients, finerenone has demonstrated the potential to improve kidney and cardiovascular outcomes,” said Dr. Christian Rommel, Member of the Executive Committee of Bayer AG’s Pharmaceutical Division and Head of Research and Development. “The new FIONA study extends our clinical research for finerenone to children and adolescents with chronic kidney disease, where the unmet need is high for new treatments to delay disease progression and preserve kidney function as much and for as long as possible.”

The planned Phase III FIONA study will investigate finerenone compared to placebo in addition to standard of care in approximately 200 patients with CKD. Patients will be randomized in a 2:1 ratio to receive either a body-weight adjusted dose of finerenone or placebo on top of individually optimized labeled doses of either ACE inhibitors or an ARB. The FIONA study will contribute to the IMI2 conect4children (c4c) project, by utilising the c4c network and its clinical sites across Europe. c4c aims to provide better medicines for babies, children and young people by improving the way clinical trials are planned and conducted across Europe. In addition, the study will be conducted in collaboration with two pediatric CKD-specific clinical research networks, ESCAPE (European Study Consortium for Chronic Kidney Disorders affecting Pediatric Patients) and NAPRTCS (North-American Pediatric Renal Trials and Collaborative Studies).

In July, finerenone was approved under the brand name Kerendia® by the United States (U.S.) Food and Drug Administration (FDA) based on the positive results of the FIDELIO-DKD Phase III study for adult patients with CKD and T2D. Finerenone has also been submitted for marketing authorization in the European Union (EU) and China, as well as multiple other countries worldwide; these applications are currently under review.

About Finerenone
Finerenone (BAY 94-8862) is a non-steroidal, selective mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonist that in preclinical studies has been shown to block harmful effects of MR overactivation. MR overactivation is thought to contribute to CKD progression and cardiovascular damage which can be driven by metabolic, hemodynamic or inflammatory and fibrotic factors.

The Phase III study program with finerenone, FINEOVATE, currently comprises five Phase III studies: FIDELIO-DKD, FIGARO-DKD, FINEARTS-HF, FIND-CKD and FIONA.

The initiation of the Phase III FIONA study (FInerenone for the treatment of children with chrOnic kidNey disease and proteinuriA) builds upon the robust Phase III results from the FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD studies which evaluated the effects of finerenone versus placebo on top of standard of care across a broad range of disease severity, on both renal and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with CKD and T2D. Based on these findings, FIONA will investigate the effect of finerenone in pediatric participants with CKD and severely increased proteinuria.

The initiation of the Phase III FIND-CKD study (FInerenone, in addition to standard of care, on the progression of kidney disease in patients with Non-Diabetic Chronic Kidney Disease) builds upon the robust Phase III results from the FIDELIO-DKD and FIGARO-DKD studies which evaluated the effects of finerenone versus placebo on top of standard of care on both renal and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with CKD and T2D. Based on these findings, and since the beneficial kidney effect of finerenone observed in previous studies was independent of the glycemic state and was shown in a related population, FIND-CKD will investigate the effect of finerenone in patients with non-diabetic etiologies, including hypertension and chronic glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidneys).

About Chronic Kidney Disease in Pediatric Patients
Globally, between 30 and 90 children per million have CKD stage 2 or higher. The annual incidence in European countries ranges from 8.7 to 17.5 cases per million children. As in adults, secondary treatment strategies for CKD in children aim to prevent disease progression by focusing on control of blood pressure and proteinuria through RAAS blockade with an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) or an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). However, despite treatment with available standard ACEI or ARB therapy, pediatric patients with CKD, like adults, continue to have proteinuria and progression of renal disease. Therefore, novel treatment options are needed which target modifiable risk factors, and act synergistically with the established therapies to overcome their limitations and improve the outcome in children with CKD.

IMI2 conect4children
The Collaborative Network for European Clinical Trials for Children (conect4children or c4c) is an action under the Innovative Medicines Initiative 2 (IMI2) Joint Undertaking (https://www.imi.europa.eu/), Grant Agreement 777389.

IMI2 c4c aims to enhance the development of better medicines for babies, children and young people, by generation of a sustainable infrastructure across Europe, that optimizes the delivery of clinical trials in children, and the use of innovative trial designs and new quantitative methods.

About ESCAPE
The ESCAPE Network (European Study Consortium for Chronic Kidney Disorders Affecting Pediatric Patients) is a group of 30 pediatric nephrology expert centers from 9 European countries. The Network aims to improve the management of chronic kidney disease in children and adolescents and has performed numerous clinical trials and cohort studies over more than two decades. In the landmark ESCAPE Trial, the consortium established the efficacy of strict blood pressure control and ACE inhibition in slowing renal failure progression in children. Further information on the ESCAPE Network can be found at http://www.escapenet.eu.
