Urea synthesis will be evaluated by administering sodium [1-13C]-acetate and measuring subsequent incorporation o...
RATIONALE: The urea cycle is the process in which nitrogen is removed from the blood and converted into urea, a waste product found in urine . Urea cycle disorders are inherited disorders caused by the lack of an enzyme that removes ammonia from the bloodstream. Gene therapy is treatment given to change a gene so that it functions normally. Studying the treatment and metabolism of patients with urea cycle disorders may be helpful in developing new treatments for these disorders...

The study purpose is to determine whether two different hemodialysis blood flow rates each meet national dialysis standards for urea clearance. Urea is used as the primary marker of dialysis adequacy. It is an experimental study with a crossover design of minimum 38 participants. Participants will be selected from the accessible pool of end-stage renal disease clients at the Vancouver Community Dialysis Unit. The participants will dialyse at each pre-determined blood flow rate ...
The aim of the study is to assess the efficacy of HepaStem treatment in paediatric patients suffering from urea cycle disorders.
Urea cycle disorders are rare inherited diseases that generally have a poor outcome. In this study, neonates and infants with UCD will be included within the first 3 months of life and will be treated by repetitive application of human liver cells to reduce the risk of neurological deterioration while awaiting OLT.
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a major organ failure in septic shock. Current medical tests (serum creatinine and urea) cannot identify AKI until approximately 48 hours after it occurs. Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) may be able to predict ischemic AKI more effectively and faster than serum creatinine and urea levels. The purpose of this study is to take a blood sample from patients at admission and then at 24 and 48 hours after to test their plasma for NGAL a...
Urea cycle disorders are inherited illnesses in which the body does not produce enough of the chemicals that remove ammonia, a byproduct of protein metabolism, from the blood stream. Elevated ammonia levels can lead to brain damage and death. Argininosuccinic aciduria (ASA) is a type of urea cycle disorder that is characterized specifically by high levels of argininosuccinic acid, a chemical involved in the urea cycle. People with ASA are at risk for serious liver damage, which...
Cataract is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the world,surgery is the only available option to correct the problem and the major reasons for low cataract surgical rates include low demand because of fear of surgery, high cost of surgery and poor visual results but new research raises the hope that someday, cataracts could be cured with simple eye drops. This is the first report for preparing urea-loaded NPs eye drops for cataract therapy. Enhancement of the ure...
RATIONALE: Pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and topical urea/lactic acid-based cream may prevent or lessen hand-foot syndrome caused by chemotherapy. It is not yet known whether giving pyridoxine with or without topical urea/lactic acid-based cream is more effective than topical urea/lactic acid-based cream alone or a placebo in preventing hand-foot syndrome. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying pyridoxine and topical urea/lactic acid-based cream to see how well they wo...
This is a randomized, controlled, open-label parallel arm study to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and ammonia control, of RAVICTI® as compared to NaPBA in urea cycle disorder subjects not currently or previously chronically treated with phenylacetic acid (phenylacetate; PAA) prodrugs. The study design will include: 1) Baseline Period; 2) Initial Treatment Period; 3) a RAVICTI only Transition Period 4) a RAVICTI only Maintenance Period; and 5) a RAVICTI only ...
Loss of total mass of muscles (catabolism) is a serious clinical problem in patients with active inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The investigators have earlier shown that the liver plays an important role in this stress-catabolism by increasing the production of urea during the inflammatory process. The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of the anti-inflammatory drugs prednisolone and infliximab on the regulation of the urea synthesis in patients with active ...
Approximately 200 patients with suspected H.pylori will be tested with a 13C-Urea Breath Test (UBT) to ascertain H.pylori positive. 100 H.Pylori positive patients will tested before and after prescribed with one of the four selected Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs); 25 patients in each arm. This will provide information on the influence of PPIs on the UBT (Urea Breath Test). The aim of the trial is to observe the effect of different PPIs on the breath test and choose the optima...
The urea cycle consists of a series of chemical reactions through which the body converts toxic waste- nitrogen into a substance called urea that can be disposed of easily. While disposal of nitrogen is the major function of the urea cycle, recent research has shown that some enzymes of the urea cycle are also important for the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is an important chemical that has many functions in the human body including regulation of blood pressure. Thro...

Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are a group of rare inherited metabolism disorders. Infants and children with UCD commonly experience episodes of vomiting, lethargy, and coma. The purpose of this study is to perform a long-term analysis of a large group of individuals with various UCDs. The study will focus on the natural history, disease progression, treatment, and outcome of individuals with UCD.
Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are genetic disorders caused by the liver's inability to breakdown ammonia from proteins; ammonia then accumulates and is toxic to the brain. UCD cause brain damage and intellectual and developmental disabilities and even death. Treatment for UCD is either conservative management which involves a low-in-protein diet, drugs, and amino acid supplements or liver transplantation; each carry their own risks. This study aims to help patients to make decis...
