Cite this ( AASK Clinical Trial and Cohort Study , RRID:SCR_006985)

URL: http://archives.niddk.nih.gov/patient/aask/aask.aspx

Resource Type: Resource, disease-related portal, topical portal, resource, research forum portal, portal, clinical trial, data or information resource

Clinical trial investigating whether a specific class of antihypertensive drugs (beta-adrenergic blockers, calcium channel blockers, or angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors) and/or the level of blood pressure would influence progression of hypertensive kidney disease in African Americans. The initiative consisting of 21 clinical centers and a data-coordinating center is followed by a Continuation of AASK Cohort Study to investigate the environmental, socio-economic, genetic, physiologic, and other co-morbid factors that influence progression of kidney disease in a well-characterized cohort of African Americans with hypertensive kidney disease. Only patients who were previously in the randomized trial are eligible for the cohort study. A significant discovery was made in the treatment strategy for slowing kidney disease caused by hypertension. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, compared with calcium channel blockers, were found to slow kidney disease progression by 36 percent, and they drastically reduced the risk of kidney failure by 48 percent in patients who had at least one gram of protein in the urine, a sign of kidney failure. ACE inhibitors have been the preferred treatment for hypertension caused by diabetes since 1994; however, calcium channel blockers have been particularly effective in controlling blood pressure in African Americans. The AASK study now recommends ACE inhibitors to protect the kidneys from the damaging effects of hypertension. The Continuation of AASK Cohort Study will be followed at the clinical centers. The patients will be provided with the usual clinical care given to all such patients at the respective centers. Baseline demographic information, selected laboratory tests, and other studies are being obtained at the initiation of the Continuation Study. The patients will be seen quarterly at the centers, and some selected studies done at these visits. Samples will be obtained and stored for additional studies and analyses at a later date.

URL: http://www2.bsc.gwu.edu/bsc/oneproj.php?pkey=28

Resource Type: Resource, biomaterial supply resource, data or information resource, material resource, database

Collect, store, and distribute genetic samples from cases and controls of type 1 diabetes and diabetic nephropathy for investigator-driven research into the genetic basis of diabetic nephropathy. As the risk of kidney complications in type 1 diabetes appears to have a considerable genetic component, this study assembled a large data resource for researchers attempting to identify causative genetic variants. The types of data collected allowed traditional case-control testing, a rapid and often powerful approach, and family-based analysis, a robust approach that is not influenced by population substructure. To identify genes that are involved in diabetic nephropathy, a large number of individuals with type 1 diabetes were screened to identify two subsets, one with clear-cut kidney disease and another with normal renal status despite long-term diabetes. Those who met additional entry criteria and consented to participate were enrolled. When possible, both parents also were enrolled to form family trios. As of November 2005, GoKinD included 3075 participants who comprise 671 case singletons, 623 control singletons, 272 case trios, and 323 control trios. Interested investigators may request the DNA collection and corresponding clinical data for GoKinD participants. Participating scientists will have access to three data sets, each with distinct advantages. The set of 1294 singletons has adequate power to detect a wide range of genetic effects, even those of modest size. The set of case trios, which has adequate power to detect effects of moderate size, is not susceptible to false-positive results because of population substructure. The set of control trios is critical for excluding certain false-positive results that can occur in case trios and may be particularly useful for testing gene-environment interactions. Integration of the evidence from these three components into a single, unified analysis presents a challenge. This overview of the GoKinD study examines in detail the power of each study component and discusses analytic challenges that investigators will face in using this resource. Half of the samples were collected at the Joslin Diabetes Center and the other half were collected from around the country by researchers at The George Washington University. DNA samples were processed by scientists at the University of Minnesota and stored at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Stored samples were available to the research community through a mechanism that has been determined by JDF. Clinical characteristics of patients, which are stored in a central database, are also made available to participating scientists. A similar collection is being carried out in the United Kingdom. This data resource allows researchers to test hypotheses that might explain why diabetic kidney disease clusters in families. This resource also is suitable for studying other complications and type 1 diabetes itself. For example, a total of 1,110 diabetes case trios was available at the end of three years.)

A commercial optical diagnostic company focused on providing clinicians with critical information to improve patient care. The Optical Renal Function Monitor (ORFM) is their first product platform and is focused on real-time, easy to use, and cost-effective monitoring of kidney function. Their non-invasive monitoring technology works in a similar fashion to pulse oximetry by using a light sensor placed on the skin. After the sensor has been placed, a proprietary biocompatible tracer is administered. The system can then monitor the patient''s real-time point-of-care kidney function. This information will allow for earlier detection of renal issues enabling clinicians to provide earlier, and hence more effective interventions. MediBeacon has created a research grade technique that is clinically applicable for real-time point-of-care Glomerular Filtration Rate measurement (mGFR). MediBeacon has invented a fluorescent tracer agent (MB-102) that is removed from the blood exclusively by the GFR mechanism of the kidneys. Together with their non-invasive detection device, this will deliver a real-time point-of-care measurement of GFR.
