Safety of Low Dose IV Contrast CT Scanning in Chronic Kidney Disease

The use of radio contrast medium enhances the image quality of CT scans. However, contrast CT is avoided in patients with CKD for fear of contrast-induced nephropathy. The current standard of care for these patients is CT without contrast. Taking advantage of fast scanning capabilities of modern CT scanners (64-Multi-Detector ...

Belatacept in Kidney Transplantation of Moderately Sensitized Patients

This exploratory single-center, open-label safety and efficacy study will enroll 20 adult kidney transplants candidates, moderately sensitized against their deceased donor and at-risk for delayed graft function (DGF), to receive Belatacept (days 0,5, weeks 2,4,8 and 12 (10 mg/kg), and every 4 weeks thereafter (5 mg/kg)), plasma exchange (once before ...

Belatacept 3 Month Post Transplant Conversion Study

Immunosuppressive therapy with the calcineurin inhibitors (CNI) cyclosporine (CsA) and Tacrolimus (Tac), have radically changed the field of organ transplantation. Ironically, although extensively and effectively used for kidney transplantation and other solid organ transplants, CsA and Tac cause important adverse renal side effects: acute and chronic renal dysfunction, hemolytic-uremic syndrome, ...

Assessing DSA Formation Diabetes Viral Infections Structural Kidney Changes With an Everolimus-based Regimen (ADVISE)

Patients enrolled in the core study CRAD001A2433 in Australia will be eligible for recruitment into CRAD001AAU13. These patients will undergo additional tests (including 4 kidney allograft biopsies) as part of the substudy that will be conducted during core study CRAD001A2433 visits. At Day 0 (day of transplant /TX), Month 2, ...

A Study of Ferric Citrate to Improve Inflammation and Lipid Levels

In patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) receiving dialysis, the risk of cardiovascular death has been estimated to be 10-100 times higher than the general population without renal disease. This is due in part to high levels of inflammation and vascular calcification (large deposits of calcium in arteries) found ...

Deep Versus Moderate Neuromuscular Blockade During Laparoscopic Surgery

Neuromuscular blockade (NMB) is frequently utilized in laparoscopic procedures to improve surgical conditions by relaxing the abdominal muscles and thus facilitating insufflation with carbon dioxide to optimize surgical view. Increased airway pressures can lead to an increase in alveolar and perivascular edema, a decline in dynamic lung compliance and hypoxemia. ...

Pilot Study Evaluating Doxercalciferol Replacement Therapy in Kidney Transplant Recipients

People with kidney transplants often develop bone disease. One reason for bone disease may be overactivity of a gland in the neck called the parathyroid gland. Overactivity of the parathyroid gland may be caused by lack of Vitamin D in the body. It has recently been discovered that many patients ...

Effect of Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy in the Morbidly Obese Kidney Transplant Candidate

The remaining factor in determining the effectiveness of bariatric surgery in the transplant population will be to study the effect on the pharmacokinetics of immunosuppressive medication, height, weight, BMI, abdominal circumference, blood pressure, Hba1c , average daily insulin requirements, lipid profile, TSH, 24h urine creatinine clearance and the SF-36 Quality ...

Safety and Effectiveness Evaluation of Two Kinds of Peritoneal Dialysate

This study is a prospective, randomized, parallel, controlled, multi-center clinical study of Huaren Peritoneal Dialysate and Baxter Peritoneal Dialysate.It aims to investigate the proper dialysis dose for Chinese CAPD patients.At the same time,it can evaluate the effectiveness and safety of Chinese product Huaren Peritoneal Dialysate and peritoneal dialysis product Baxter ...

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 ...
