Nephrogenic Medical Research Studies

Up-to-date List of Nephrogenic 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 Nephrogenic Medical Research Studies

Rank Status Study
1 Unknown  Use of Plasmapheresis for Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NFD)/Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) and Understanding Its Etiology
Conditions: Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy;   Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis
Intervention: Procedure: Plasmapheresis
Outcome Measure: Improve elasticity of skin, including increased range of motion of compromised joints due to leathery skin
2 Recruiting Observational Study on the Incidence of NSF in Renal Impaired Patients Following DOTAREM Administration
Condition: Renal Insufficiency
Outcome Measure: Number of patients with moderate to severe renal impairment who develop Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis after administration of DOTAREM
3 Recruiting Combination Chemotherapy and Surgery in Treating Young Patients With Wilms Tumor
Conditions: Diffuse Hyperplastic Perilobar Nephroblastomatosis;   Stage I Wilms Tumor;   Stage II Wilms Tumor;   Stage III Wilms Tumor;   Stage IV Wilms Tumor;   Stage V Wilms Tumor
Interventions: Drug: doxorubicin hydrochloride;   Procedure: therapeutic conventional surgery;   Biological: dactinomycin;   Drug: cyclophosphamide;   Drug: carboplatin;   Drug: etoposide phosphate;   Drug: vincristine sulfate;   Procedure: adjuvant therapy;   Procedure: neoadjuvant therapy
Outcome Measures: Event-free survival;   Prevention of complete removal of at least one kidney in 50% of patients with bilateral Wilms tumor (BWT);   Efficacy of chemotherapy in preserving renal units and preventing Wilms tumor development in patients with diffuse hyperplastic perilobular Nephrogenic rests;   Facilitation of partial nephrectomy in lieu of total nephrectomy in 25% of patients with unilateral Wilms tumor;   Percentage of patients with BWT undergoing definitive surgical treatment by week 12
4 Recruiting Pilot Study of the Effect of Laser on Reversing Chronic Radiation Injury
Condition: Chronic Radiation Dermatitis
Interventions: Device: Fractional CO2 laser treatment;   Other: No treatment
Outcome Measures: Improvement in fibrosis (% reduction in fibrosis surface area) compared to controlled sites;   Adverse events
5 Recruiting Neurovascular Non Contrast-Enhanced MR Angiography at 3T
Condition: Neurovascular Diseases
Outcome Measures: A reading grid assessing the image quality;   An evaluation grid classifying the main pathological findings
6 Recruiting Copeptin in the Diagnosis and Differential Diagnosis of Diabetes Insipidus. The CoSIP-Study
Condition: Diabetes Insipidus
Outcome Measure: Diagnosis of diabetes insipidus(DI) centralis versus psychogenic DI

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

A major focus of Nephrogenic 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.
