Summary

The COMBINE clinical trial is a pilot study evaluating the effects of nicotinamide and lanthanum carbonate on serum phosphate and fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) stages 3-4.

Clinical Details

Official title: The COMBINE Study: The CKD Optimal Management With BInders and NicotinamidE

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator)

Primary outcome: Since this is a Pilot Study, the primary outcome measures is feasibility. The clinical outcome measure is change from baseline to 12 months in serum phosphate and FGF23 levels

Secondary outcome:

Change from baseline in bone and mineral metabolism markers

Change from baseline in surrogate measures of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk over 12 months

Change from baseline in surrogate measures of CKD progression and inflammation, by changes in intra-renal oxygenation and fibrosis over 12 months

Eligibility

Minimum age: 18 Years. Maximum age: 85 Years. Gender(s): Both.

Able to provide consent 6. Able to travel to study visits 7. Able to eat at least two meals a day 8. In the opinion of the site investigator, willing and able to follow the study treatment regimen and comply with the site investigator's recommendations. Exclusion Criteria: 1.
