This is a multicenter, 26-week, single-arm, open-label, safety study. Subjects will remain on study for 26 weeks or until time of kidney transplantation, whichever comes first. All subje...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of cinacalcet (cinacalcet HCl or Sensipar®/Mimpara®) on cardiovascular events and death in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether cinacalcet, used in patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism to control excessive parathyroid hormone, can normalize low blood phosphoru...
This is a phase 3, 32-week, multicenter, single arm, open-label extension study. All enrolled subjects will be administered cinacalcet daily during the treatment period in addition to stan...
This study is designed in order to investigate the effect of cinacalcet in combination with routine conventional medical management for treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) an...
Oxidative stress is one of the leading factors contributing to increased mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT). Cinacalcet is now commonly us...
Management of patients with chronic kidney disease has evolved since the last Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes clinical practice guideline was published in 2012. This article reviews the most ...
Proton pump inhibitor use is associated with incident chronic kidney disease, chronic kidney disease progression and end-stage renal disease. However, the extent of proton pump inhibitor prescriptions...
Chronic kidney disease is a global health problem that affects over 10% of adults worldwide. All doctors should have a basic knowledge of chronic kidney disease because it may complicate the managemen...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a worldwide public health problem. Regardless of the underlying primary disease, CKD tends to progress to end-stage kidney disease, resulting in unsatisfactory and cost...
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.
Decalcification of bone or abnormal bone development due to chronic KIDNEY DISEASES, in which 1,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D3 synthesis by the kidneys is impaired, leading to reduced negative feedback on PARATHYROID HORMONE. The resulting SECONDARY HYPERPARATHYROIDISM eventually leads to bone disorders.
Abnormal enlargement or swelling of a KIDNEY due to dilation of the KIDNEY CALICES and the KIDNEY PELVIS. It is often associated with obstruction of the URETER or chronic kidney diseases that prevents normal drainage of urine into the URINARY BLADDER.
A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.
