Reduction in albuminuria has been shown to decrease progression of diabetic
nephropathy. In diabetic nephropathy patients treated with maximal
antihypertensive doses with dual RAAS blockade (total daily dose valsartan 320
mg and either enalapril 40 mg or benazepril 40 mg daily), persistent
albuminuria reflects further additional RAAS activation. Microvascular renal
disease due to increased RAAS activation may be more effectively treated with
triple blockade by the addition of a direct renin inhibitor (DRI) Aliskiren.

This study will measure the effects of different doses of aliskiren on kidney blood flow and function in healthy adults and determine how salt intake affects the response to aliskiren.
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of combination aliskiren/amlodipine in patients with hypertension not adequately controlled with amlodipine alone
This double-blind 8 week study will evaluate dose response, efficacy (blood pressure lowering effect) and safety of aliskiren in children 6 - 17 years old with hypertension at low, mid and...
This study will assess the safety and efficacy of combination aliskiren/amlodipine in patients not adequately controlled with aliskiren alone
Evaluate the diastolic blood pressure lowering effect of combination of aliskiren 300 mg and HCTZ (12.5 mg and 25 mg) in hypertensive patients who do not show sufficient blood pressure res...
Renin-angiotensin system activation promotes oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction. However, no previous study has examined the effects of the renin inhibitior aliskiren, either alone or combin...
Aliskiren might be beneficial for heart failure. However, the results of various studies are controversial. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to explore the efficacy of aliskiren sup...
It is important to know which factors predict the development of microalbuminuria in patients with diabetes mellitus type II.
Kidney function is critical for homocysteine (Hcy) clearance, and plasma Hcy levels are frequently increased in patients with renal failure. Microalbuminuria (MAU) is an important marker of early rena...
Cognitive impairment is an important element affecting our well-being, and as such, early diagnosis is critical today. We investigated whether serum cystatin C and microalbuminuria are associated with...
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.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
