Deferiprone for the Prevention of Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury

2014-08-27 03:12:48 | BioPortfolio


The primary objective of this trial is to assess the impact of CRMD-001 on markers of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) in high-risk patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography and PCI.


This trial will evaluate whether treatment with CRMD-001 (unique formulations of the iron chelator, Deferiprone) will reduce the incidence of AKI in subjects with CKD and additional risk factors. Adult subjects with moderate to severe CKD who are undergoing coronary angiography and PCI will be randomized to either placebo or CRMD-001 and followed for 90 days. Subjects will receive 8 days of randomized therapy starting 1-3 hours prior to angiography. The primary endpoint of the trial will be the difference in mean paired change of a panel of sensitive renal biomarkers between the groups. Differences in renal or cardiovascular clinical events will also be evaluated.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.

Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.

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.

Acute and chronic neurologic disorders associated with the various neurologic effects of ETHANOL. Primary sites of injury include the brain and peripheral nerves.

A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, and chemicals from the environment.
