Genetic Causes of FSGS Nephrotic Syndrome or Kidney Failure

The investigators welcome anyone (with or without a family history) with unexplained, non syndromic FSGS, nephrotic syndrome, or proteinuria to join the study. Participation involves a saliva (or blood if it is preferable) sample and urine sample (if applicable). There is no cost to participate and the study can be ...

Phase N/A

Novel Strategies for Innovating Deceased Donor Procurement

Despite many efforts to increase the size of the donor pool, there is a large and growing disparity between the number of donor kidneys available for transplantation and the number of patients on the transplant waiting list. Increasing the quality of currently available donor kidneys would potentially improve the longevity ...

Phase N/A

Kidney Function in Sickle Cell Anemia

Sickle cell disease is a severe monogenic disorder which affects approximately 80,000 patients in the US. It is characterized by a vasculopathy with involvement of multiple organs and resulting in complications such as ischemic stroke, pulmonary hypertension, autosplenectomy, priapism, as well as chronic kidney disease (CKD). Despite the high prevalence ...

Phase N/A

Balanced Solution Versus Saline in Intensive Care Study

Pragmatic, multicenter, 2x2 factorial randomized study. Severe patients admitted to the ICU at moderate to high risk for death or acute kidney injury will be randomly allocated to receive a balanced crystalloid solution (Plasma-Lyte) or 0.9% saline and to receive crystalloids by rapid bolus infusion (999 mL/h) or slow infusion ...

Phase

Technology Assisted Stepped Collaborative Care Intervention

End-stage renal disease patients on hemodialysis experience substantial symptom burden with fatigue, pain and depression among the most debilitating and existing as symptom clusters. These symptom clusters can exacerbate one another, and are independent and strong predictors of poor health-related quality of life in hemodialysis patients. This study will look ...

Phase N/A

Eplerenone in Patients Undergoing REnal Transplant (EPURE TRANSPLANT)

Assess the impact of eplerenone (initiated within 2 hours prior to patient departure to the operating room and administered for 4 days during the post-operative period) on graft function evaluated by the measurement of glomerular filtration rate at 3 months - variable strongly associated with long-term graft survival.

Phase

Cognitive Impairment and Imaging Correlates in End Stage Renal Disease

Cognitive impairment is very common in patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). It exact mechanisms are not clear, but patients with ESRD have more cerebral white matter changes. Several studies have shown that cognitive function improves post-transplant, indicating that there may be some reversibility in the process. This study ...

Phase N/A

The Feasibility of Propofol TCI in Hemodialysis Patients Undergoing Arteriovenous Shunt Surgery

The investigators will recruit 80 patients undergoing AV shunt surgery. All patients will receive general anesthesia and brachial plexus block. Patients will be randomly allocated into two groups. Study and control group received propofol target-controlled infusion (TCI) and inhaled anesthetics as anesthesia maintenance, respectively. Main outcomes will be assessed by ...

Phase

Influence of Elevated Baseline Serum Creatinine and Body Composition on Acute Kidney Injury in Cardiac Surgery

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is an infrequent but major and well - recognized complication of cardiac surgery (1, 2). Its incidence ranges from 1 to 30% (3). Numerous pre-, intra-, and postoperative factors have been associated with the development of AKI after cardiac surgery (3-19). Most commonly used definitions are ...

Phase N/A

Safety Use of ATeGe in Liver Transplant Recipients With Pre-transplant Renal Dysfunction

Renal dysfunction in the context of liver transplantation is a major issue, with difficult patients' management and determining a worsened prognosis. Physiopathologically pretransplant renal dysfunction is dependent on multifactorial causes, including hypoperfusion-derived functional renal insufficiency, hepatorenal syndrome or interstitial parenchymatous insufficiency. On top, intra- or post-transplant events, including hypoperfusion or ...
