Early Goal Directed Therapy for Acute Kidney Injury

Early goal directed therapy during 6 hours after occurence of the early phase of acute kidney injury

Comprehensive Management of Diabetic Patients With Renal Impairment : Impact on Blood Pressure and Glycemic Control

Complications of diabetes are influenced by the quality of blood pressure control and of metabolic control. Several prospective studies have shown a positive effect of the implementation of such control, however metabolic and blood pressure targets are not achieved for about 30% of diabetic uremic patients. Our project aims at ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Malnutrition on the Prognosis in Hemodialysis Patients

Malnutrition is known to affect their prognosis in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, recent studies indicate that malnutrition is associated with inflammation and atherosclerosis in these patients. In this study we examine the effect of malnutrition and/or inflammation on atherosclerosis and 5-year survival rate in 600 hemodialysis patients.

Vaccine Therapy in Treating Patients With Newly Diagnosed Stage IV Kidney Cancer

OBJECTIVES: Primary - Determine the biological and clinical responses, in terms of measured T-cell responses, of two different induction vaccination regimens comprising autologous dendritic cells transfected with autologous tumor mRNA and human CD40 ligand in patients with newly diagnosed stage IV clear cell renal cell carcinoma. Secondary - Determine safety ...

Urinary Marker for Oxidative Stress in Human Cisplatin- Induced Renal Injury

We previously reported early measurement of urinary MDA might be a useful marker for the prediction of CDDP-induced renal damage in rat. The purpose of this clinical study is to test whether the changes of human urinary excretion of MDA, and can be used as early biomarker for the prediction ...

Phase N/A

Imaging Study in Patients With Cancer of the Head & Neck Lung Renal Cell Brain Lymphoma and Neuroendocrine Tumours

The proposed clinical trial will be a Phase I/II imaging, open label, single site study. In Phase I, one 18F-FAZA PET scan will be conducted in patients with known squamous cell carcinoma of the Head & Neck, SCLC, NSCLC, lymphoma, GGM, neuroendocrine tumours or renal cell carcinoma. In Phase II, ...

Pharmacokinetic Study on the Combination of Everolimus-Tacrolimus

To address the pharmacokinetic profiles of everolimus and tacrolimus in combination in de novo kidney transplant recipients, comparing 1.5 and 3 mg per day of everolimus in fixed doses. For comparison purposes, pharmacokinetic profiles will be performed at first dose (abbreviated), 4th day, 14th day, and 42nd day post-transplantation. Patients ...

Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (F.I.N.D.)

The Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (FIND) is a multicenter study designed to identify genetic determinants of diabetic kidney disease. FIND is conducted in eleven centers and in many ethnic groups throughout the United States. Two different strategies are used to localize genes predisposing to kidney disease: a family-based ...

Phase N/A

ADMA Levels in End-Stage Renal Disease

Asymmetric dimethylarginine, ADMA, in plasma, is significantly elevated in patients with renal disease and associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We found that whole blood (WB) possesses the metabolic pathways required for both the generation and elimination of ADMA and we have developed ex vivo methods to assess the WB ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Different Dialysis on Sleep Apnea in Patients With Renal Failure

Sleep apnea or breathing problems during sleep are frequent, occurring in 6% of the general population. However, more than half of all patients on dialysis suffer from breathing problems related to sleep. Sleep apnea is associated with high blood pressure, excessive sleepiness, fatigue, poor memory and concentration as well as ...
