Acute Kidney Injury (AKI): Management and Outcome

2019-09-04T16:18:33+00:00By |Tags: , , , |

In my previous article, I explained the types, causes and symptoms of Acute Kidney Injury (AKI). Here, I’ll share how physicians treat and manage AKI, as well as what to expect. CRRT or intermittent hemodialysis? To treat AKI, nephrologists primarily use renal replacement therapy (RRT), which includes intermittent hemodialysis, peritoneal hemodialysis, various forms of CRRT, and “hybrid” therapies such as prolonged intermittent renal replacement therapy (PIRRT) or sustained low-efficiency hemodialysis (SLED). A few clinical trials are taking a look at CRRT and intermittent hemodialysis under different conditions.

Rare Disease: 5 Steps to Successful Program Development

2019-09-16T16:53:56+00:00By |Tags: , , |

There may be as many as 7,000 rare diseases. The European Union defines a disease as rare when it affects less than one in 2,000 people. According to the Orphan Drug Act, a rare disease affects less than 200,000 people in the United States. Support from FDA, EMA and other regulatory agencies, combined with technological and scientific advances, have made it more feasible for pharmaceutical companies to give dedicated attention to orphan drug development. In doing so, they're developing medications for rare diseases that often have no cure and no available treatment. To ensure novel therapies advance from the lab to regulatory approval, a blockbuster-drug approach won't work. Managing rare disease studies to completion requires innovative thinking in nearly every phase of program development. Those willing to become trailblazers have the highest odds of success.

FSGS: A rare kidney disease without targeted therapies

2019-09-03T15:37:50+00:00By |Tags: , |

Researchers are studying a few new and existing drugs to treat FSGS. FSGS needs a novel medication that regulates both high body fats and inflammasome inhibition via upstream innate immune system to block intracellular initiation of inflammatory cascade and extra cellular inflammation. Over the past five years, nearly 30% of Biorasi-initiated or ongoing studies involved chronic kidney disease. Our experience allows us to develop successful nephrology clinical trials.

Rare Disease Spotlight: C3 Glomerulopathy

2019-09-03T16:51:05+00:00By |Tags: |

C3 glomerulopathy (C3G), a rare kidney disease, affects only two or three people out of every one million. That’s only a couple people out of the entire population of San Jose, California or Austin, Texas. Although C3G only affects a select few, without treatment it can lead to severe kidney damage and failure, necessitating expensive dialysis or transplant. To date, there is no specific, effective therapy. As a CRO that understands the challenges involved in researching rare disease treatments, we’re here to help drug developers deliver the most effective clinical trials possible—on time and on budget. Speak with one of our rare disease experts today to find out how we can help you develop your next rare disease program.
