Intravenous Iron in Patients With Severe Chronic Heart Failure and Chronic Kidney Disease

Intravenous iron administration in CHF patients with absolute or functional iron deficiency could correct their anemia, thus improving cardiac function judged by ejection fraction and NYHA functional class. If true, enhancement of cardiac output will increase oxygen delivery to tissues, including renal cortex. This might improve the renal functions and ...


Assessing Novel Methods of Improving Patient Education of Nutrition

Study Description The relationship between elevated phosphorus levels and morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is well recognized, and dietary phosphorus restriction is a mainstay of phosphate management. Despite this, appropriate control of phosphate intake remains sub-par, due in part to the difficulties that patients have ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Effect of N-Acetylcysteine on Peritoneal Membrane Function in Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

Cardiovascular disease is the commonest cause of morbidity and mortality in chronic dialysis patients, including those treated with CAPD (Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis) [1]. Uncontrolled arterial hypertension in ESRF leads to progression of LVH, which is a strong predictor for coronary events, CHF and mortality [2]. Fluid overload is a ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Trial of Sodium Bicarbonate to Prevent Contrast-Induced Nephropathy

The use of contrast media is more frequent as new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are developed. As a consequence, the occurrence of acute renal failure (ARF), also known as contrast-induced nephropathy, is more frequently seen after the realization of these procedures, representing about 10% of all in-hospital ARF. The importance ...


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 ...


Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic Effects of MTR107 in End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Patients

The present clinical trial aims to investigate and provide a more precise characterization of the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of MTR107 in a population of ESRD patients predisposed to developing intradialytic hypotension. The study is also designed as a dose esclating study aiming to assess MTR107 safety.


Acute Renal Failure in the Surgical Intense Care Units - NTUH-SICU-ARF (NSARF) Study

Postoperative acute renal failure is a serious complication resulting in a prolonged stay and high mortality. Acute renal failure (ARF) develops in 5 to 30% of patients who undergo surgery, and for all causes, it is associated with mortality rates of 60–90%. Despite advances in supportive care and innovations in ...

Phase N/A

The Efficacy of Color-Doppler Ultrasonography to Assess the Renal Blood Flow With the Estimation of GFR

To validate color Doppler ultrasonography of renal arteries for the assessment of renal blood flow (RBF), we comparing left and right RBF estimates and their sum (total RBF) by echo-Doppler with data obtained by 99mTc-DTPA scintigraphy in 50 patients with hypertension and/or moderate renal failure, compared with 30 normal control ...

Phase N/A

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 ...
