Brief description of study

This study will be evaluating the safety and efficacy of propagermanium for the treatment of participants with FSGS who are already taking irbesartan by:

  • monitoring symptoms that participants may experience while on the study,
  • measuring levels of protein in participant's urine and kidney function during the course of the study,
  • measuring the levels of propagermanium and irbesartan that enters into participant's urine and blood, and
  • comparing the propagermanium outcomes to participants' pre-study and placebo outcomes.

Eligible participants will randomly be assigned to one of two arms to receive both the propagermanium and placebo in different orders as follows, either:

Treatment Period 1 taking a propagermanium capsule twice a day for 16 weeks, followed by a six week washout period followed by Treatment Period 2 taking a placebo capsule twice a day for 16 weeks.

OR Treatment Period 1 taking a placebo capsule twice a day for 16 weeks, followed by a six week washout period followed by Treatment Period 2 taking a propagermanium capsule twice a day for 16 weeks.
