Safety Study Of N-Acetylcysteine For Prevention Of Contrast Induced Nephropathy In Patients w/Stage 3 Renal Failure

Radiographic contrast media is being used at an increasing rate for various diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Renal failure following contrast administration for enhanced imaging has become a serious complication. Patients with underlying renal disorders have an increased incidence of Contrast Induced Nephropathy (CIN). CIN has been reported as the third ...

Prevention of Contrast Nephropathy During Diagnostic Coronary Angiogram or PCI With Hydratation Based on LEVDP

The goal is to determine if prehydration based on LEVDP is superior to a standard hydratation, independant of volemic status, with NaCl 0.9% or NaHCO3 for the prevention of contrast nephropathy related to a diagnostic coronary angiogram or to PCI.

Genetic Characterization of Movement Disorders and Dementias

Objective The objective of this study is to ascertain individuals with a clinical diagnosis of a movement disorder or dementia, their affected and unaffected family members, and unrelated, healthy individuals (to provide control samples); to characterize their phenotypes; and to identify and further characterize genetic contributions to etiology by collecting ...

Therapeutic Evaluation of Steroids in IgA Nephropathy Global Study (TESTING Low Dose Study)

IgA glomerulonephritis is the most common primary glomerulonephritis, and immunosuppression with steroids has been suggested to be a potential protective therapy, although the benefits and risks have not been clearly established. The TESTING study was established to compare the effects of oral methylprednisolone 0.8 mg/kg/day weaning over 6-8 months, to ...

Molecular and Clinical Profile of Diabetes Mellitus and Its Complications

Genetic factors play an important role in diabetes mellitus, its risk factors and complications, but most of the specific genetic determinants remain unidentified. The molecular pathways by which diabetes-susceptibility genes influence risk for diabetes and related conditions are also largely unknown. This project will seek to identify, and quantify the ...

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 ...

Nephrotic Syndrome Study Network

Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (NS) is a rare disease syndrome responsible for approximately 12% of all causes of end-stage kidney disease (ESRD) and up to 20% of ESRD in children. Treatment strategies for Focal and Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), Minimal Change Disease (MCD) and Membranous Nephropathy (MN), the major causes of NS, ...

Molecular Biological and Moleculargenetic Monitoring of Therapy After Kidney Transplantation

Molecular monitoring is conducted in blood cells, plasma samples, urine samples and/or tissue from recipients after kidney transplantation and donors. In the present study the investigators examine the hypothesis that noninvasive diagnostic molecular monitoring can improve the outcome after transplantation. Routine clinical and laboratory data from serum and urine are ...

Phase N/A

Myfortic for Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome (MCNS): a Randomized Study

This is a prospective, open-label, randomized study in which patients who present for the first time with a clinical diagnosis of idiopathic MCNS proven on renal biopsy will be assigned to either conventional standard-dose prednisolone monotherapy or myfortic combined with low-dose prednisolone treatment for 6 months. Clinical response and relapse ...

Repository of Novel Analytes Leading to Autoimmune Inflammatory and Diabetic Nephropathies (RENAL AID)

RENAL AID is designed as an inclusive data and tissue repository that is capable of linking demographic, clinical, laboratory, histology, genetic and radiographic data into one interconnected electronic data collection instrument. It is hypothesized that by linking these typically disconnected data components into a single electronic repository, RENAL AID will ...
