Prevention Of Nephrotoxicity Following Bone Marrow Transplantation Using Urodilatin and Mannitol
The purpose of the study is to combine Urodilatin (ANP analogue), which will increase glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and mannitol, which will increase the rate of urinary flow and solute excretion. We intend to treat twenty consecutive allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients in a phase II study comparing results with historical controls.
We hypothesize that the incidence of renal dysfunction, ARF and thus mortality in allogeneic bone marrow transplantation can be significantly reduced by the use of protective agents Urodilatin and mannitol. We feel that this combination is best administered prior to and during the first two weeks of treatment when patients encounter immunosuppressive agents and the onset of early transplantation complications.
Acute Renal Failure
Drug: URODILATIN (ULARITIDE, ATRIAL NATRIURETIC PEPTIDE)
|Study Design:||Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Prevention Of Nephrotoxicity Following Allogeneic Bone Marrow Transplantation Using Urodilatin (Ularitide,Atrial Natriuretic Peptide) and Mannitol.|
- Renal function will be assessed for first 30 days after transplantation for the primary endpoint.
- The primary endpoints will be a comparison of the grades of renal dysfunction, incidence of ARF requiring dialysis, and overall survival
- Patient will be followed at 3 month intervals for the first year and then yearly for life.
