The Phase 2 clinical trial was a multi-center, single-blind, escalating dose proof-of-concept study that assessed the efficacy and safety of orally-administered ATR-101 in addition to corticosteroids in patients with classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia resulting from 21-hydroxylase deficiency.

Although aldosterone could not be tested before treatment with hydrocortisone owing to inadequate sample, the adequate cortisol and normal 17-OHP essentially ruled out the diagnosis of CAH from 21-hydroxylase deficiency or primary adrenal insufficiency as the cause of the patient's electrolyte disarrangements.
The most common form of CAH is caused by mutations in C4P21A2, the gene encoding the adrenal steroid 21-hydroxylase enzyme.
The most common cause of CAH is 21-hydroxylase deficiency (21OHD) where patients with the classic form present with or without salt loss (salt wasting or simple virilizing forms, resp.
