  • Ferric Citrate and Chronic Kidney Disease in Children

    open to eligible people ages 6-18

    We will conduct a 12-month, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial to assess the effects of therapy with ferric citrate (FC) on changes in intact FGF23 levels (iFGF23, primary endpoint) in 160 pediatric patients (80 in each of the two arms) aged 6-18 years of either sex with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 3-4 and age-appropriate normal serum phosphate levels. Participants will be randomized to one of the two groups: 1) FC or 2) FC placebo. Participants will be recruited from 12 core clinical sites.

  • Desensitization of Chronic Kidney Disease in Adult Patients in Need of a Kidney Transplant Who Are Highly Sensitized to Human Leukocyte Antigen

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    The primary objective of the study is to assess the safety and tolerability of REGN5459 (Part A) or REGN5458 (Part B) as monotherapy in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) who need kidney transplantation and are highly sensitized to human leukocyte antigen (HLA). The secondary objectives of the study are to determine/assess the following for REGN5459 (Part A) or REGN5458 (Part B): - Dose regimen(s) that result in a clinically meaningful reduction of anti-HLA alloantibody levels - Effect on calculated panel-reactive antibody (cPRA) levels - Time to maximal and clinically meaningful reduction in anti-HLA alloantibody levels - Duration of the effect of study drug on the reduction of anti-HLA alloantibodies - Effect on circulating immunoglobulin (Ig) classes (isotypes) - Pharmacokinetics (PK) properties - Immunogenicity

  • Ferric Citrate in Children With Hyperphosphatemia Related to Chronic Kidney Disease

    open to eligible people ages 6-16

    This study will be conducted to assess the safety and tolerability of ferric citrate in pediatric participants with hyperphosphatemia related to chronic kidney disease (CKD).

  • Home Blood Pressure (BP) Trial

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    The main study will be a two arm 10-month, cross-over randomized controlled trial of 200 participants treated with end-stage-kidney-disease treated with in-center hemodialysis in the Seattle and San Francisco area comparing a strategy of targeting home vs. pre-dialysis systolic blood pressure <140 mmHg to reduce rates of intradialytic hypotension. The target systolic blood pressure of <140 mmHg in both treatment groups will be achieved using an algorithm of dry weight adjustment and anti-hypertensive medication adjustment.

  • Pirfenidone to Prevent Progression in Chronic Kidney Disease

    open to eligible people ages 21 years and up

    Kidney disease is a global health problem, affecting more than 10% of the world's population and more than half of adults over 70 years of age in the United States. Persons with kidney disease are at higher risk for cardiovascular disease, heart failure, physical function decline, and mortality. Kidney scarring is a dominant factor in the development of kidney disease. Our group has evaluated several tests to determine the severity of scarring without requiring kidney biopsies, using MRI imaging scans and evaluating markers of scarring that we can measure in the urine. In this study we will use these measures to evaluate pirfenidone as a promising potential new treatment for patients with kidney disease.

  • Observational Extension Study for Adult Patients Treated in Study R5459-RT-1944 Who Receive A Kidney Transplant

    open to eligible people ages 18-70

    The primary objective of the study is to assess adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) in kidney transplant recipients previously treated with REGN5459 or REGN5458 in the R5459-RT-1944 study. The secondary objectives of the study are to evaluate each of the following in kidney transplant recipients previously treated with REGN5459 or REGN5458: - Rates and classification of antibody-mediated and T-cell-mediated kidney allograft rejection - Graft survival - Allograft function - Delayed allograft function - Anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) alloantibody levels and calculated panel-reactive antibody (cPRA) - Emergence of de novo donor-specific antibodies - Circulating immunoglobulin (Ig) classes (isotypes) - Pharmacokinetics (PK) of REGN5459 or REGN5458

  • APOL1 Long-term Kidney Transplantation Outcomes Network (APOLLO)

    open to all eligible people

    The APOLLO study is being done in an attempt to improve outcomes after kidney transplantation and to improve the safety of living kidney donation based upon variation in the apolipoprotein L1 gene (APOL1). Genes control what is inherited from a family, such as eye color or blood type. Variation in APOL1 can cause kidney disease. African Americans, Afro-Caribbeans, Hispanic Blacks, and Africans are more likely to have the APOL1 gene variants that cause kidney disease. APOLLO will test DNA from kidney donors and recipients of kidney transplants for APOL1 to determine effects on kidney transplant-related outcomes.

  • Pilot to Examine Risk and Feasibility of Remote Management of BP From CKD Through ESRD

    Sorry, currently not accepting new patients, but might later

    The transition from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to end-stage renal disease ESRD is a vulnerable and challenging period of time for patients and providers. Suboptimal control of blood pressure is known to be common in patients with the advanced stages of CKD, and may contribute to their elevated risk of progression to ESRD, cardiovascular morbidity, and mortality. This proposal is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether intensive blood pressure lowering is feasible and safe in patients with advanced CKD as they transition to ESRD.

  • SDCC - Prospective Cohort Study of Chronic Renal Insufficiency

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a silent epidemic affecting more than 37 million Americans. The burden of morbidity and mortality associated with CKD derives from its frequent progression to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) and the disproportionate risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and associated complications. CKD is strongly and independently associated with CVD, even after adjustment for traditional CVD risk factors. This led to the hypothesis that other risk factors augment the rate of CVD in the setting of CKD. Hence, many patients with progressive renal disease succumb to fatal CVD events before they need renal replacement therapy. The National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) established the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study in 2001 with the initial goal of elucidating the relationship between CKD and CVD. Since its inception, the CRIC Study has recruited and followed a racially and ethnically diverse cohort of over 5,000 participants with reduced kidney function from 13 clinical recruitment sites across the US. The original aim of CRIC was to establish a clinical research laboratory designed to (a) identify novel predictors of CKD progression, and (b) characterize the manifestations of CVD and identify its risk factors among individuals with CKD. The CRIC Study has examined a broad set of etiological factors (clinical, behavioral, and biomarker-associated) potentially responsible for both progressive CKD and CKD-related morbidities, especially those early in the course of CKD. Characterizing relationships between these risk factors and outcomes should facilitate identification of high-risk subgroups with CKD and guide enrollment into preventive treatment trials and application of preventive therapies. Over time, the scientific focus and the CRIC investigator network have broadened extensively through a highly successful ancillary studies program that has included more than 100 projects, most of which have been funded through federal grants. To date, the CRIC Study's investigative activities have resulted in over 300 published scientific papers with many additional manuscripts in development.
