Metformin in Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major global health problem associated with substantial costs and resource utilization. Currently, CKD affects more than 500 million people worldwide. Patients with CKD have unacceptably high mortality rates due to cardiovascular (CV) causes, which are not entirely explained by traditional CV risk factors. The ...

Anti-Cytokine Therapy for Hemodialysis InflammatION

The ACTION Trial will enroll 80 participants being treated with maintenance hemodialysis for end-stage renal disease. Participants will be randomized to receive Anakinra, 100 mg administered intravenously 3 times per week at the end of the hemodialysis session, or matched placebo. The duration of study drug administration is 24 weeks. ...

Ixazomib for Desensitization

This is a pilot exploratory, proof of concept, open-label, single-center phase II investigator initiated clinical trial entitled IXAzomib for DESensitization (IXADES). The purpose of the study is (1) to examine the safety and efficacy of ixazomib for desensitization of highly sensitized kidney transplant candidates and (2) to conduct mechanistic studies ...

Effects of Variation of Sodium Dialysate in ICU

Acute kidney injury (AKI) requiring renal replacement therapy (RRT) occurs in 5 to 6% of critically ill patients and is associated with high mortality and significant health resource utilization. Modalities of RRT currently available include intermittent hemodialysis/diafiltration (IHD/F) and continuous renal replacement therapies. Continuous veno-venous therapies have gained wide application ...

Phase

Sodium Chloride and Contrast Nephropathy

This phase II, open, non-inferiority, randomized and controlled clinical trial is aimed to ascertain the incidence of contrast nephropathy in outpatients undergoing CT scan with contrast. Patients will be randomized to receive oral prophylaxis with capsules of sodium chloride and free water ingestion or prophylaxis with sodium chloride 0.9% intravenous ...

Helping Olfaction and Nutrition On Renal Replacement

Malnutrition and cachexia are prevalent in end stage renal disease (ESRD) patients and are associated with increased morbidity and mortality. Food aversion is a major contributor to anorexia and malnutrition in ESRD and it also impacts the quality of life. Olfactory dysfunction has been shown to contribute to food aversion ...

Phase

Sirolimus Use in Angioplasty for Vascular Access Extension

This is a randomized control study to determine the feasibility of using sirolimus peri-angioplasty to compare the time from primary failure or angioplasty intervention to second or next angioplasty intervention or graft failure to a control group who would not have received Sirolimus

Phase

Renal Protection Using Sympathetic Denervation in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease

Background patients with chronic renal insufficiency are an ideal group for renal denervation (RDN), because of the increase in sympathetic tone. This increase leads to sodium retention, reduction of perfusion of the kidney and to excessive activation of renin angiotensin aldosterone system. The activation of the sympathetic system significantly contributes ...

Phase

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Renal Regeneration in Diabetic Nephropathy

Scientific background Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD): The kidneys, which are an important target for diabetic induced damage, contribute a lot to this burden. Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the most common cause of end-stage kidney disease worldwide, associated with increased morbidity and mortality in patients with diabetes. The pathogenesis of DKD ...

Fit for Dialysis: Research-based Film as a Knowledge Translation Strategy

The study introduces a highly accessible and compelling educational film designed to introduce, motivate, and sustain patient exercise for wellness amongst older hemodialysis patients, and exercise counseling and support by nephrology staff and family caregivers. Fit for Dialysis is a filmed drama that is based on focus group research with ...
