NCT ID: NCT05196035 Not yet recruiting - Clinical trials for Chronic Kidney Disease

A Study to Learn More About How Well the Study Treatment Finerenone Works, How Safe it is, How it Moves Into, Through, and Out of the Body, and the Effects it Has on the Body When Taken With an ACE Inhibitor or Angiotensin Receptor Blocker in Children With Chronic Kidney Disease and Proteinuria

Start date: January 19, 2022
Phase: Phase 3
Study type: Interventional

Researchers are looking for a better way to treat children who have chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is long-term kidney disease, and proteinuria, a condition in which a person´s kidneys leak protein into the urine. The kidneys filter waste and fluid from the blood to form urine. In children with CKD, the kidney´s filters do not work as well as they should. This can lead to accumulation of waste and fluid in the body and proteinuria. CKD can lead to other medical problems, such as high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Vice versa, hypertension and proteinuria can also contribute to worsening of CKD. Therefore, the treatment of CKD aims to control blood pressure and proteinuria. There are treatments available for doctors to prescribe to children with CKD and hypertension and/or proteinuria. These include "angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors" (ACEI) and "angiotensin receptor blockers" (ARB). Both ACEI and ARB can improve kidney function by helping the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) to work normally. The RAAS is a system that works with the kidneys to control blood pressure and the balance of fluid and electrolytes in the blood. In people with CKD, the RAAS is often too active, which can stop the kidneys from working properly and cause hypertension and proteinuria. However, ACEI or ARB treatment alone does not work for all patients with CKD as they only target the angiotensin part of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. The study treatment, finerenone, is expected to help control RAAS overactivation together with an ACEI or ARB. So, the researchers in this study want to learn more about whether finerenone given in addition to either an ACEI or ARB can help their kidney function. The main purpose of this study is to learn more about whether finerenone added to either ACEI or ARB can help reduce the amount of protein in the participants' urine more than a placebo. A placebo looks like a treatment but does not have any medicine in it. Participants will also continue to receive their other medications. To see how the treatment work, the doctors will take samples of the participants' urine to measure their protein levels before and during taking treatment and after their last treatment. In addition, blood samples will be taken to monitor kidney function, electrolytes and the amount of finerenone in the blood as well as for other tests. This study will include children with CKD and proteinuria aged from 6 months up to less than 18 years. The participants will take: - either finerenone or the placebo, in addition to - either ACEI or ARB, whichever they take as part of their normal treatment Two visits are required up to 104 days, to check whether a child can take part in the treatment phase of the study. If participants qualify for the treatment phase, they will then undergo treatment for about 180 days. During this time, they will visit the study site at least 7 times. During these visits, the participants will: - have their blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, height and weight measured - have blood and urine samples taken - have physical examinations - have their heart examined by an electrocardiogram and echocardiography (a sonogram of the heart) - answer questions about their medication and whether they have any adverse events , or have their parents or guardians answer - answer questions about how they are feeling, or have their parents or guardians answer - answer question about how they like the study medication, or have their parents or guardians answer The doctors will keep track of any adverse events. An adverse event is any medical problem that a participant has during a study. Doctors keep track of all adverse events that happen in studies, even if they do not think the adverse events might be related to the study treatments. The doctors will check the participants' health about 30 days after the participants take their last treatment.



Start date: June 1, 2017
Phase: Phase 4
Study type: Interventional

Objectives: To reduce the microbial level in the aerosol created during dental procedures is essential in avoiding infections. The aim of this study was to examine the change of Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) and the total bacterial load in human saliva in vivo after a single rinse with different mouthwashes. Material and methods: One mL unstimulated saliva was collected from volunteers with poor oral hygiene at baseline and 5 min after a one-min rinsing with Solumium Oral® (hyper-pure 0.0015% chlorine dioxide; ClO2), Listerine Total Care®, Corsodyl® (0.2% chlorhexidine-digluconate; CHX), or BioGate Si*CLEAN for bacterial investigation. In a second study volunteers rinsed with 0.003% ClO2 or CHX for one-min and saliva was collected at baseline, after 5 and 90 min. After plating the total plate and S. mutans colony numbers were determined.

NCT ID: NCT05177835 Recruiting - Ulcerative Colitis Clinical Trials

Long-term Safety and Efficacy Profile of ABX464 in Subjects With Moderate to Severe Active Ulcerative Colitis

Start date: December 3, 2021
Phase: Phase 2
Study type: Interventional

This study is an open-label study aiming at evaluating the long-term safety and the efficacy profile of ABX464 given once a day (QD) at 25 mg in subjects who have been previously enrolled in the ABX464-102 or ABX464-104 studies (OLE and maintenance studies) and who are willing to continue their treatment. All subjects will receive ABX464 given at 25 mg QD. The enrolment in this long-term study will be based on the endoscopic improvement, the willingness of the subject to carry on his/her participation and also based on investigator's judgement. Subjects will be treated with ABX464 for a maximum period of 54 months. Subjects will be followed up quarterly. After the treatment period, subjects will be followed for 4 additional weeks for safety purposes.

NCT ID: NCT05171608 Recruiting - Anesthesia Clinical Trials

Preoperative Ultrasound-based Protocol for Optimization of Fluid Therapy to Prevent Early Intraoperative Hypotension

Start date: January 20, 2022
Phase: N/A
Study type: Interventional

Background: Intraoperative hypotension increases 30-day mortality and the risks of myocardial injury and acute renal failure. Patients with inadequate volume reserve before the induction of anesthesia are highly exposed. The identification of latent hypovolemia is therefore crucial. Ultrasonographic measurement of the inferior vena cava collapsibility index (IVCCI) is able to detect volume responsiveness in circulatory shock and growing evidence support the theory that higher IVCCI can predict intraoperative hypotension. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the potential benefit of an ultrasound-based protocol for preoperative fluid optimization. The investigators will perform a randomized-controlled study involving elective surgical patients. An ultrasound-based protocol (USP) arm and a conventional fluid therapy group (CFT) are to be formed. Ultrasound examinations will be performed twice in both groups: 2 hours and 30 minutes preoperatively. The inferior vena cava and the anterior lung fields will be scanned. In the USP group the participants will receive fluid therapy according to the ultrasonographic findings: high level of IVCCI and absence of signs of pulmonary edema will indicate fluid therapy. In the CFT group the attending anesthesiologist (blinded to the results of ultrasonography) will order fluid therapy on the basis of daily routine and clinical judgement. The investigators will evaluate the incidence of intraoperative hypotension (primary outcome), postoperative metabolic status and organ functions and the amount of the administered intravenous fluids in both groups.
