Brief Summary:
Finerenone is developed for the treatment of diabetic kidney disease (adults) and chronic kidney disease (children). The purpose of the proposed trial is to test the pharmacokinetics of a novel liquid formulation for the treatment of children in comparison to the adult tablet formulation.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pharmacokinetics Drug: Finerenone (BAY94-8862): 20 mg intact tablet Drug: Finerenone (BAY94-8862): 20 mg crushed and resuspended tablet Drug: Finerenone (BAY94-8862): 20 mg suspension Phase 1
