Sodium Intake in Chronic Kidney Disease (STICK)

Chronic kidney disease, which affects an estimated 300,000 people in Ireland and over 50 million people in the developed world, is responsible for a considerable burden of premature mortality and morbidity. All patients with chronic kidney disease are recommended low salt diets, i.e. less than a teaspoon of salt per ...

Effects of Variation of Sodium Dialysate in ICU

Acute kidney injury (AKI) requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) occurs in 5 to 6% of critically ill patients and is associated with high mortality and significant health resource utilization. Modalities of RRT currently available include intermittent hemodialysis/diafiltration (IHD/F) and continuous renal replacement therapies. Continuous veno-venous therapies have gained wide application ...

Phase

Sodium Chloride and Contrast Nephropathy

This phase II, open, non-inferiority, randomized and controlled clinical trial is aimed to ascertain the incidence of contrast nephropathy in outpatients undergoing CT scan with contrast. Patients will be randomized to receive oral prophylaxis with capsules of sodium chloride and free water ingestion or prophylaxis with sodium chloride 0.9% intravenous ...

Helping Olfaction and Nutrition On Renal Replacement

Malnutrition and cachexia are prevalent in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Food aversion is a major contributor to anorexia and malnutrition in ESRD and it also impacts the quality of life. Olfactory dysfunction has been shown to contribute to food aversion ...

Phase

Sirolimus Use in Angioplasty for Vascular Access Extension

This is a randomized control study to determine the feasibility of using sirolimus peri-angioplasty to compare the time from primary failure or angioplasty intervention to second or next angioplasty intervention or graft failure to a control group who would not have received Sirolimus

Phase

The Effect of Spironolactone on Acute Kidney Injury in Patients Undergoing Coronary Angiography

an interventional study to measure the possible effects of spironolactone ( an aldosterone antagonist) on the incidence of acute kidney injury after coronary angiography

Apixaban in End-stage Kidney Disease : A Pharmacokinetics Study

RATIONALE Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is one of the epidemics of modern times. In the recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), the overall prevalence of CKD (stages 1 to 4) increased from 10.0% in 1988-1994 to 13.1% in 1999-2004 (1). Mounting data point to the lethal synergy between ...

Study of the Effect of Intradialytic Vasopressin on Chronic Hypertension in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease

This pilot study originally enrolled a group of 12 subjects (4 subjects per arm) in order to demonstrate feasibility with the primary outcome measure, interdialytic 44-hour ambulatory systolic blood pressure. Data on the original subjects is complete and results are posted. We are now reopening study enrollment and increasing the ...

Phase

A Study to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of a Selective Cytopheretic Device (SCD) in Pediatric Patients With Acute Kidney Injury (AKI).

The selective cytopheretic device (SCD) is comprised of tubing, connectors and a hemofilter cartridge. The device is connected in series to commercially available Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) devices. Blood from the CRRT circuit is diverted after the CRRT hemofilter through to the extra capillary space (ECS) of the SCD. ...

The Effects of Patiromer on Serum Potassium Level and Gut Microbiome of ESRD Patients With Hyperkalemia

The Effects of Patiromer on Serum Potassium Level and Gut Microbiome of ESRD Patients With Hyperkalemia (potassium greater than 5 milliequivalents per liter) is a non-randomized, crossover study. This is an open-label, pilot clinical trial with 3 sequential phases of (a) 2 weeks of no intervention, (b) 12 weeks of ...
