Phophate Lowering Trial

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major health concern both in the general and Veteran populations. Indeed, the prevalence of CKD in a large Veteran population is 20%. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is significantly increased in CKD and is an important cause of morbidity and mortality. As much as 80% of ...


Sympathetic Activity in Patients With End-stage Renal Disease on Peritoneal Dialysis

Cardiovascular mortality remains higher among patients treated with peritoneal dialysis as compared to patients treated with hemodialysis. Sympathetic hyperactivity is considered a significant emerging risk factor for cardiovascular mortality among patients with ESRD (End-Stage Renal Disease). Sympathetic activity, via its hemodynamic effects and trophic effects, and in interaction with RAAS ...


Is There a Digital Divide in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)?

Individuals with CKD are at risk for adverse safety events, yet little is known regarding the utility of health information technology (IT) educational tools to reduce these events. The results of this project will be invaluable in gaining a better understanding of the limitations and potential for use of a ...

Phase N/A

Post-Marketing Surveillance on Long-Term Drug Use of Kiklin (Bixalomer) Capsules in Patients With Hyperphosphatemia Receiving Peritoneal Dialysis

To evaluate the safety and efficacy of long-term use of Kiklin Capsules in actual clinical settings.

Phase N/A

Effect of Extraneal (Icodextrin) on Triglyceride Levels in PD Patients

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a markedly higher prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than the general population. Dyslipidemia is considered a major cause of CVD in patients with CKD. Especially for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients, the use of glucose as the osmotic agent in PD solutions has been ...

Phase N/A

Early Screening and Diagnosis of CKD

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health problem. The prevalence of CKD in adults in China was 10.8%. Awareness of CKD is only 10.04% from a national cross-sectional survey in China. CKD is characterised by decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and increased albuminuria, present for more than ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Ferric Citrate in ESRD Pilot Project

Iron deficiency anemia is very prevalent in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients. Patients with ESRD require phosphate binders for hyperphosphatemia and erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) and intravenous (IV) iron for anemia. In patients with ESRD, iron deficiency occurs more frequently, because of increased external losses of iron, decreased availability of ...


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 ...


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
