Advance Care Planning With Older Patients Who Have End-stage Kidney Disease

Kidney failure becomes more common as people age. It increases the risks of other major illnesses, sudden worsening of symptoms, and death. Even so, many people with kidney failure do not talk about their preferences for end-of-life care. Advance care planning (ACP) can help patients and families think through their ...

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

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 ...

Phase

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 ...

Phase

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

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 ...

Phase

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 ...
