Lithium remains the gold-standard treatment for bipolar disorder, with 30-40% of patients with responding preferentially to this medication. Additionally, lithium is commonly used in treatment-resistant depression, and other psychiatric disorders (e.g. schizoaffective disorder). Lithium is especially valuable considering the great difficulty in achieving and maintaining symptomatic remission, the high rates of disability, as well as tremendous personal, family, and societal cos...
A growing body of pre-clinical evidence suggests that glycogen synthase kinase 3β (GSKβ) is implicated in the development and progression of acute kidney injury (AKI). Lithium is a naturally occurring standard inhibitor of GSKβ. The purpose of this study is to examined if low dose lithium carbonate is able to reduce the incidence of AKI in patients undergoing cardiac surgery who are placed on cardiopulmonary bypass during surgery. We hypothesize that low dose lithium might r...
The purpose of this study is to examine the proposed suicide preventive effects of lithium in a randomized controlled trial within a group of individuals with depressive disorders. The hypothesis being tested is that lithium treatment will significantly reduce the risk for another suicide attempt.
Protein energy wasting is an independent factor associated with morbi-mortality in chronic kidney disease. Wasting is particularly common in chronic diseases of organs such as kidney disease with a major impact at the stage of dialysis. It covers 20 to 70% of patients diagnosed with chronic kidney disease according to the degree of evolution of the disease and the diagnostic method. Mechanisms of PEW are based mainly on anorexia and metabolic abnormalities caused by kidney ...
The aim of this study is to determine whether oral supplementation with lithium and acetate may improve the biological and clinical prognosis in patients with Canavan Disease.
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how the kidneys control the blood levels of phosphorus in patients with early chronic kidney disease. The ultimate goal is to use this information to design improved treatment strategies for phosphorus-related problems for the millions of patients with chronic kidney disease.
The purpose of this study is to verify the efficacy of diuretic therapy on blood pressure control and left ventricular mass in patients affected by chronic kidney disease
A Phase II, Open-Label Safety and Efficacy Study of an Autologous Neo-Kidney Augment (NKA) in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease (RMTX-CL001). NKA is made from expanded autologous selected renal cells (SRC) obtained from the patient's kidney biopsy. All enrolled subjects will be treated with up to two injections of NKA at least 6 months apart.
The objective of this long-term study is to prospectively compare the incidence of NSF in two cohorts (Cohort 1 - patients with moderate chronic kidney disease eGFR 30 to 59 and Cohort 2 - patients with severe chronic kidney disease or kidney failure eGFR
The objective of this long term study is to prospectively compare the incidence of NSF in two cohorts (Cohort 1- patients with moderate chronic kidney disease eGFR 30-59 and Cohort 2- patients with severe chronic kidney disease or kidney failure eGFR
Researchers now know that treating chronic kidney disease (CKD) in its early stages can prevent dialysis and reduce heart problems that go along with kidney disease. Computerized tools may help primary care doctors to diagnose the disease earlier and computer reminders may help doctors to prescribe the best treatments. In this project we will test computer reminders in primary care clinics to see if they improve treatment of early chronic kidney disease and to see if it can pro...
The purpose of this program is to educate primary care physicians in four underserved clinics in eastern North Carolina about chronic kidney disease.
Probiotics could improve renal function parameters in uremic rats and significantly lower levels of blood urea nitrogen in stage 3 and 4 chronic kidney disease patients. The aim of the present study is to evaluate whether probiotics could retard the decline of renal function in patients with chronic kidney disease?
Foot ulceration is a risk factor that has been associated with early death in patients with chronic kidney disease. Little is known about the relationship between these risk factors that develop in patients with kidney failure and the onset of lower limb threatening foot ulcers. Diabetes is a major cause of both kidney disease and foot ulceration; however a previous study reported that a significant proportion of kidney failure patients on haemodialysis treatment without...
This study is looking to improve the safety of patients with chronic kidney disease via education provided on a mobile tablet. This study will additionally examine if electronic tools, such as mobile tablets, can help.
Verapamil has been found in some but not all studies to have antimanic activity. Therefore, we investigated the use of verapamil, alone or as an adjunctive treatment, in manic patients who did not respond to an initial adequate trial of lithium. Each study phase lasted three weeks. Subjects were treated openly with lithium in Phase 1 (n=45). Those who failed to respond were randomly assigned to double-blind treatment in Phase 2 with either verapamil (n=10) or continued lith...
Chronic kidney disease, which affects an estimated 300,000 people in Ireland and over 50 million people in the developed world, is responsible for a considerable burden of premature mortality and morbidity. All patients with chronic kidney disease are recommended low salt diets, i.e. less than a teaspoon of salt per day (which is
The aim of this study is to evaluate the therapeutic exercise effects in patients with chronic obstructive kidney disease. An interventional prospective study is carried out. A sample of 9 patients with chronic obstructive kidney disease is recruited. The kidney function (creatinine clearance as main outcome) is measured at baseline and 1 month after treatment start.
IBM is the most common acquired muscle disease occurring over the age of 50. The underlying cause remains unknown and there is currently no effective treatment. Pathological studies have revealed abnormal collections of proteins in the muscle cells from patients with IBM. These include proteins called phosphorylated tau (p-tau). A similar process appears to occur in Alzheimer disease, with accumulations of p-tau developing in brain cells. Lithium decreases the activity of the G...
The proposed randomized controlled trial will test the effect of dietary sodium reduction on albuminuria in patients with proteinuric chronic kidney disease. Results from this study will clarify the role of dietary sodium reduction in management of patients with proteinuric chronic kidney disease and its potential to halt the progression of chronic kidney disease.
Anticalins® are engineered human proteins that are able to bind specific target molecules. The Anticalin PRS-080#022-DP to be investigated in this study is directed against hepcidin and is intended for the treatment of anemia of chronic disease. This Phase Ib study shall investigate the safety, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of a single administration of PRS-080#022-DP in anemic stage 5 chronic kidney disease patients undergoing hemodialysis.
Subjects with normal kidney function are able to excrete in their urine the calcium and phosphorus absorbed via the gastrointestinal tract and are thereby are able to maintain calcium and phosphorus balance. Patients with chronic kidney disease often have normal blood levels of calcium and phosphorus but no research has been conducted to determine if they are able to excrete their daily intake of these minerals. If they are not able to excrete their daily intake, these minerals...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of the therapeutic exercise effects in patients with chronic kidney disease. An randomized clinical trial is carried out. A total sample of 70 patients with chronic kidney disease is recruited and divided into a therapeutic exercise group and a control group. The kidney function (creatinine clearance as main outcome) is measured at baseline and 1 month after treatment start.
This study is being conducted to evaluate sitaxsentan dosing in subjects with chronic kidney disease.
Hypothesis: Continuation of an atypical antipsychotic medication in combination with a Mood Stabilizer, following remission from an acute manic episode, lowers the rates of relapse and recurrence of mood episodes compared to discontinuing the antipsychotics within days of resolution of manic symptoms.
