The Effect of Vitamin E-coated Polysulfone Membrane on Oxidative Stress Inflammation and Monocytes in Critically Ill Patients in CRRT

The study evaluate the effect of a membrane in polysulfone covered with vitamin E (ViE15-A, ASAHI Kasey, Tokyo, Japan) on the levels of oxidative stress, pro and anti-inflammatory cytokines and the mode and amount of death of monocytic cell lines in critically ill patients admitted to intensive care undergoing continuous ...

Phase N/A

Hemodynamic Effects of Blood Flow Variation in Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy

Purpose of this study is to evaluate the short-term hemodynamic effects of changes in blood flow rates in critically ill patients receiving continuous renal replacement therapy.

Phase N/A

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 ...


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

Pharmacokinetics Pharmacodynamics and Safety of Basis in Acute Kidney Injury Study

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common, growing in incidence, and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Sirtuins are anti-aging enzymes that play a diverse role in cellular energy metabolism and gene regulation. Mice deficient in SIRT1 are more susceptible to developing AKI and sirtuin activation is a potential treatment for ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Pitavastatin on Erythrocyte Membrane Fatty Acid Contents in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are high risk for death and cardiac disease is the major cause of death. CKD patients commonly have traditional risk factors for coronary artery disease, such as age, gender, hypertension, cigarette smoking, and dyslipidemia. Previous studies have reported that reducing cholesterol levels is associated ...


Hemodialysis in the Elderly (70yrs & Older)

This will be a prospective, single institution, parallel-group, single-blinded, randomized-controlled, two-arm, effectiveness study comparing autologous arteriovenous fistula versus hemodialysis access grafts in the elderly. The target sample size will include enrollment of 270 patients over a period of 5 years. The creation of an autologous arteriovenous fistula or placement of ...

Phase N/A

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 ...


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

Tacrolimus/Everolimus vs. Tacrolimus/MMF in Pediatric Heart Transplant Recipients Using the MATE Score

Median survival after pediatric heart transplantation (HT) is 15 years in the current era. This means that a substantial fraction of patients transplanted during childhood fail to survive to adulthood, or require heart re-transplantation, because of complications related to heart transplant. These complications include heart transplant rejection, infection, coronary artery ...
