Brief Summary:

Researchers in this study want to learn more about the effect of a new drug called BAY2327949 on the blood flow through kidneys in adult participants with moderate long lasting kidney disease. It is thought that, in long lasting kidney disease, blood flow through the kidney tissue is changed, and that some parts of the kidney may receive less oxygen and nutrients because of this. BAY2327949 is a new drug under development with a goal to modify how much blood is flowing through kidneys. It works by binding to and blocking proteins that can regulate blood flow through the kidneys.

Participants in this study will receive 3 tablets of BAY2327949 once and 3 tablets of Placebo once (a placebo looks like a drug but does not have any medicine in it). Both BAY2327949 and Placebo will be taken orally. And after taking each of them, participants will undergo a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning for 60 to 90 minutes to assess the blood flow to kidneys. MRI is an examination of parts of the body (in this case the kidney) which provides images of these regions. Blood samples will be collected from the participants to check the general health and look at how the study drug is working in the body and how the body affects the study drug. Participants will visit the hospital or clinic about 4 times in total, and the observation for each participant will not more than 56 days.

    Single dose of BAY2327949 + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of Placebo

    Participants Arm 2:

    Single dose of Placebo + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of BAY2327949

    T2 = (unit: ms) acquired during MRI scanning


  3. Difference between T2* in the kidney medulla after administration of BAY 2327949 and placebo [ Time Frame: Within 2 hours of treatment ]

    2-way crossover design

    Participants Arm 1:

    Single dose of BAY2327949 + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of Placebo

    Participants Arm 2:

    Single dose of Placebo + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of BAY2327949

    T2 = (unit: ms) acquired during MRI scanning


  4. Difference between renal cortical perfusion after administration of BAY 2327949 and placebo [ Time Frame: Within 2 hours of treatment ]

    2-way crossover design

    Participants Arm 1:

    Single dose of BAY2327949 + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of Placebo

    Participants Arm 2:

    Single dose of Placebo + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of BAY2327949


  5. Difference between renal arterial flow after administration of BAY 2327949 and placebo [ Time Frame: Within 2 hours of treatment ]

    2-way crossover design

    Participants Arm 1:

    Single dose of BAY2327949 + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of Placebo

    Participants Arm 2:

    Single dose of Placebo + 7 days washout phase + Single dose of BAY2327949


  6. Number of participants with treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) [ Time Frame: Up to 21 days ]
