Dianeal Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Dianeal Medical Research Studies

What Research is Being Done?

A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies. Following list includes both interventional and observational studies.

Latest Dianeal Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Unknown  A Study to Evaluate the Effects of Icodextrin Versus 2.5% Dianeal on Insulin Resistance in Non Diabetic Apd Patients
Condition: Disorders Associated With Peritoneal Dialysis
Interventions: Other: icodextrin;   Other: Dianeal
Outcome Measures: The primary efficacy outcome was to measure glycated hemoglobin to set the differences with regard to baseline values of this variable for the two groups as well as in each group, which showed control of the glucose metabolism.;   Serum lipids. Serum albumin. Total protein. Subjective Global Assessment (SGA). Number of hospitalization events. Time until hospitalization. Time of hospitalization. Number of antihypertensive drugs. Cost per type of therapy;   Other efficacy outcomes were total UF, long-dwell UF, and preprandial glycemia (taken first in the morning before breakfast).
2 Recruiting Sympathetic Activity in Patients With End-stage Renal Disease on Peritoneal Dialysis
Conditions: End-stage Renal Disease (ESRD);   Kidney Disease
Interventions: Other: Dianeal;   Other: EXTRANEAL
Outcome Measures: Changes in muscle sympathetic nerve activity(MSNA);   Changes in leptin levels;   Changes in blood pressure as assessed from 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitor (ABPM);   Changes in extracellular volume assessed by bioelectrical impedance (BIA);   Changes in heart rate variability;   Changes in central intravascular volume assessed by cardiac ultrasound;   Changes in plasma catecholamines levels;   Changes in BNP (Brain Natriuretic Peptide)levels;   Changes in plasma insulin levels
3 Recruiting Peritoneal Dialysis vs Furosemide for Acute Kidney Injury After Cardiopulmonary Bypass
Condition: Acute Kidney Injury
Interventions: Drug: Furosemide;   Procedure: Peritoneal Dialysis
Outcome Measures: Fluid Balance;   Respiratory Support Administered;   NGAL Concentration;   Duration of cardiac ICU stay;   Duration of hospital stay;   All cause mortality;   Renal/electrolyte abnormalities;   Doses of Potassium Chloride or Arginine Chloride required;   B-Natriuretic Peptide

These studies may lead to new treatments and are adding insight into Dianeal etiology and treatment.

A major focus of Dianeal research is the development of new drugs and other treatment options. Studies seek to identify new drugs to treat various related disorders and to find safer, more effective doses for medications already being used. Other research is aimed at identifying receptors or drug targets.
