RESULTS

Found (88) clinical trials

A research study is evaluating an investigational medication for kidney disease due to diabetes (diabetic nephropathy). This research study may be an option if you: • Are 18 years old or older • Are male or a postmenopausal woman, or a female without childbearing potential • Have impaired kidney function ...

Phase N/A

Pathogenesis of Glomerulosclerosis

The present protocol seeks to advance our understanding of sclerosing glomerular and tubulointerstitial kidney diseases, including but not limited to variants of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) and chronic kidney disease of unknown etiology (CKDu). This protocol will encompass studies of the natural history, pathogenesis and treatment of these chronic kidney ...

Phase N/A

Clinical and Basic Investigations Into Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome

Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome (HPS) is a rare autosomal recessive disease consisting of oculocutaneous albinism, a platelet storage pool defect and, in some patients, lysosomal accumulation of ceroid lipofuscin. Other manifestations include pulmonary fibrosis (often fatal in the fourth or fifth decade), chronic granulomatous colitis and, rarely, renal involvement or cardiomyopathy. There ...

Phase N/A

Immune System Related Kidney Disease

Patients with known or suspected immunologically-mediated kidney diseases, including but not limited to, nephrotic syndrome, glomerulonephritis, membranous nephropathy, lupus nephritis, and nephritis associated with other systemic or connective tissue disorders, will be evaluated at the Clinical Center. Patients who have immunologically-mediated diseases with potential for kidney disease will be evaluated ...

Phase N/A

Determination of Kidney Function

The study of various kidney disorders will be facilitated by determinations of true glomerular filtration rate and/or effective renal plasma flow employing inulin or non-radioactive iothalamate and/or para aminohippurate (PAH), respectively. Selected patients with proteinuria will be asked to participate in studies of glomerular capillary wall permselectivity calculated from the ...

Phase N/A

Dynamic Aspects of Amino Acid Metabolism

This protocol seeks to define aspects of intestinal and hepatic uptake and metabolism of several amino acids. The major hypothesis to be tested is that the splanchic bed (intestine and liver) conserves essential amino acids and metabolites while synthesizing and metabolizing nonessential amino acids. The aims of the study include ...

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

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

Phase N/A

Comprehensive Management of Diabetic Patients With Renal Impairment : Impact on Blood Pressure and Glycemic Control

Complications of diabetes are influenced by the quality of blood pressure control and of metabolic control. Several prospective studies have shown a positive effect of the implementation of such control, however metabolic and blood pressure targets are not achieved for about 30% of diabetic uremic patients. Our project aims at ...

Phase N/A

Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (F.I.N.D.)

The Family Investigation of Nephropathy and Diabetes (FIND) is a multicenter study designed to identify genetic determinants of diabetic kidney disease. FIND is conducted in eleven centers and in many ethnic groups throughout the United States. Two different strategies are used to localize genes predisposing to kidney disease: a family-based ...
