Morbidity and Mortality Among Dialysis Patients After Treatment for Depression

Morbidity and Mortality among Dialysis Patients after Treating Depression Objectives Our investigation has two objectives: 1. To assess whether treatment and recovery from depression decreases adverse clinical events in chronic hemodialysis patients. Significant morbidity is associated with depression in dialysis patients, but subsequent impact on outcome after treatment of depression ...


Reduction or Discontinuation of CNI's With Conversion to Everolimus-Based Immunosuppresion

This study is design to compare two different strategies aiming to lessen the degree of the ongoing process of allograft injury either by removing tacrolimus from the maintenance immunosuppressive protocol or by reducing tacrolimus dose. The primary goal is to assess the change in renal function at 6 and 12 ...


Fibrosis in Renal Allografts

Calcineurin inhibitors have significantly improved the one-year graft survival of renal allografts. However, chronic nephrotoxicity caused by calcineurin inhibitors contributes to the long-term decline in renal function in kidney transplant recipients. Approximately ninety percent of the protocol biopsies of renal allografts, performed at 18 months post transplantation, show histological lesions ...


NAC in Preventing CIN in CRF Patients Who Need Enhanced CT Scan in ED

CIN is frequent in CRF patients. However most studies about CIN has been focusing on elective PCI patients. There is no study that the NAC nor sodium bicarbonate would help in preventing CIN in CRF patients who need enhanced CT scan in ED. Our intention was to investigate the effect ...


More Frequent Dialysis (>3 Treatments Per Week)

The study compares the benefits of short daily hemodialysis six days a week, nocturnal (night time) hemodialysis six days a week, every other day and every other night hemodialysis to traditional three days a week hemodialysis.The hypothesis is that increasing hemodialysis treatment time and/or frequency will improve outcomes.


Prevention of Contrast Nephropathy During Diagnostic Coronary Angiogram or PCI With Hydratation Based on LEVDP

The goal is to determine if prehydration based on LEVDP is superior to a standard hydratation, independant of volemic status, with NaCl 0.9% or NaHCO3 for the prevention of contrast nephropathy related to a diagnostic coronary angiogram or to PCI.


Aliskiren and Muscle Sympathetic Nerve Activity

Cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality are frequently occurring problems in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Apart from the so called traditional risk factors, also risk factors more or less specific to CKD contribute in the pathogenesis of these problems. There is strong evidence that the sympathetic hyperactivity, which often characterizes ...


Prognostic Value of the Circadian Pattern of Ambulatory Blood Pressure for Multiple Risk Assessment

Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements (ABPM) correlate more closely with target organ damage and cardiovascular events than clinical cuff measurements. ABPM reveals the significant circadian variation in BP, which in most individuals presents a morning increase, small post-prandial decline, and more extensive lowering during nocturnal rest. However, under certain pathophysiological ...


Rifaximin Versus Lactulose in Renal Failure

The purpose of this study is to evaluate patients with cirrhosis of the liver and renal failure and determine if the administration of rifaximin as compared to lactulose is associated with less frequent and/or slower progression to severe hepatic encephalopathy. If one is associated with lower blood ammonia levels. And, ...


Study to the Optimal Duration of Therapy With Oral Angiogenesis Inhibitors

Until now, in trials it is common to stop therapy when progressive disease occurs; RECIST criteria are used, in which progressive disease is defined as >20% increase of the sum of the longest diameter of the lesions, or occurence of new lesions. However, angiogenesis inhibitors have a rather cytostatic than ...
