Brief Summary:

This is a multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-design study. The study will enroll approximately 210 adult male and female subjects with stage 3 or 4 chronic kidney disease and metabolic acidosis. The study dosing (TRC101 or placebo) will continue for 12 weeks once daily.

The maximum study duration is anticipated to be up to 16 weeks.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change from baseline in blood bicarbonate. [ Time Frame: Week 12 ]
    Comparison of TRC101 and placebo with regard to the proportions of subjects with change from baseline in blood bicarbonate ≥ 4 mEq/L or with blood bicarbonate in the normal range (22 to 29 mEq/L).

Other Outcome Measures:
  1. Adverse events, serious adverse events, withdrawal of treatment due to an adverse event. [ Time Frame: Up to Week 14 ]
    Number and percentage of subjects with treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs), number and percentage of subjects experiencing TEAEs by severity, causality, seriousness, and action taken with regard to study drug by treatment group. TEAEs leading to discontinuation of study treatment will be summarized by treatment group.

Key Inclusion Criteria:

  • Blood bicarbonate level of 12 to 20 mEq/L.
  • Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of 20 to 40 mL/min/1.73m2.
  • Stable kidney function defined as <=20% variability in eGFR during screening period.

Key Exclusion Criteria:

  • Heart failure with maximum New York Heart Association (NYHA) Class IV symptoms or that required hospitalization during the preceding 6 months.
  • Heart or kidney transplant.
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) that is treated with chronic oral steroids, that requires the subject to be on oxygen, or that required hospitalization within the previous 6 months.
  • Change in doses to alkali therapy in the 4 weeks prior to screening.
  • History or current diagnosis of diabetic gastroparesis, bowel obstruction, swallowing disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, major gastrointestinal surgery, frequent diarrhea or active gastric/duodenal ulcers.
  • Serum calcium <= 8.0 mg/dL at screening.
  • Planned initiation of renal replacement therapy within 12 weeks following randomization.
  • Use of polymeric binder drugs within 14 days prior to screening.
