Investigation of wheather addition of angiotensin receptor blocker (Irbesartan) to recommended doses of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (trandolapril) is more effective in decreasing amount of protein in urine in patients with diabetic kidney disease than high doses of trandolapril.

Pentoxifylline (PTX) is a medication that has been on the market since 1984 for use in disease in the blood vessels of the legs. There is some preliminary information that it may protect t...
The purpose of this study is to determine if LY2382770 is safe and effective at protecting kidney function in patients with kidney disease due to diabetes.
The purpose of the trial is the analysis of safety and efficacy of the chymase inhibitor BAY1142524 at a dose of 25 mg BID in comparison to placebo using a 6 months treatment period in typ...
Background: Diabetic kidney disease (DKD), as one of chronic complication of type 2 diabetes mellitus, is common cause of end stage renal disease (ESRD). Vitamin D deficiency is known as o...
The study will investigate, primarily, the safety, feasibility and tolerability and, secondarily, the preliminary efficacy of an allogeneic bone marrow-derived Mesenchymal Stromal Cell (MS...
Diabetic nephropathy has become the most common cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Despite the progress accomplished in therapy, the prevalence of renal disorders remains high. Some modifiable fac...
Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) inhibitors are known to have a protective effect on diabetic kidney disease, possibly via reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation in the kidney. However, whether t...
Metabolomics have been used to evaluate the role of small molecules in human disease. However, the cost and complexity of the methodology and interpretation of findings have limited the transference o...
The recent growing evidence that the proximal tubule underlies the early pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is unveiling novel and promising perspectives. This pathophysiological concept li...
Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) has surpassed chronic glomerulonephritis as the leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Previously, we showed that early growth response protein 1 (Egr1) plays a...
KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
Conditions or pathological processes associated with the disease of diabetes mellitus. Due to the impaired control of BLOOD GLUCOSE level in diabetic patients, pathological processes develop in numerous tissues and organs including the EYE, the KIDNEY, the BLOOD VESSELS, and the NERVE TISSUE.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
