Prospective Controlled Study of Posttransplant Diabetes

Research participants will be asked to undergo complete medical history, physical examination and blood tests. The purpose of these tests is to determine whether persons are predisposed to develop diabetes mellitus after kidney transplantation and also to make an early diagnosis if a patient develops diabetes mellitus. Medical information collected ...

Phase N/A

Search for New Methods to Detect Acute Renal Failure

The mortality of acute renal failure (ARF) remains high despite advances in supportive care. There are no established effective drug therapies, and dialysis may promote renal injury via hypotension or neutrophil activation. Many agents [e.g., mannitol, furosemide, dopamine, Atrial Natrieuretic Peptide (ANP), Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1), thyroid hormone, etc.] are ...

Effect of Reducing Phosphorus Absorption on Cardiac Biomarkers in Hemodialysis Patients

Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in patient with chronic kidney disease(CKD), accounting for more than 50% of all deaths.When myocardial cells get injured, cardiac biomarkers will be released into the circulation. Elevated cardiac biomarkers have been observed in patients with various degrees of ...

Phase N/A

Metabolic Changes in Patients With Chronic Cardiopulmonary Disease

This study aims to evaluate prevalence of sarcopenia and cachexia in patients with chronic cardiopulmonary disease. The investigators will also investigate metabolic disorders like glucose metabolism, presence of metabolic syndrome, body composition and histological changes in skeletal muscle and body fat. Finally, patients will be followed for clinical endpoints.

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.

Phase N/A

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

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 ...

University of Michigan "Nephrology Research BioBank"

Each year chronic kidney disease (CKD) claims the lives of millions of people worldwide. Costs for patient care are in excess of 2.4 billion dollars in the US alone. At the moment most kidney diseases are of unknown etiology, are classified according to a microscopic description of the kidney tissue ...

Phase N/A

Prevalence of Chronic KIdney Disease in Hypertensive Patients

This will be Cross sectional or prevalent study targeting diagnosed hypertensives aged 40 and above years, in middle to low socio-economic settings of Karachi. This proposed study will be nested in the existing Wellcome Trust funded study. The parent study is designed to determine the impact of a unique community ...

Phase N/A

Platelets Function and Cardiovascular Events in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease

Background Platelets play an important role in cardiovascular disease both in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis and in the development of acute thrombotic events. Their importance in coronary disease and in acute coronary syndromes is indirectly confirmed by the benefit of antiplatelet agents (particularly aspirin, clopidogrel, ticlopidine, and the glycoprotein IIb/IIIa ...
