Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To see if Sulodexide will prevent or slow down the progression of DDD [ Time Frame: 6 mo. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Normalization of complement function [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: December 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2009
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Sulodexide Drug: Sulodexide
200 mg per day in an oral gelcap form
Other Name: KRX-101 (sulodexide)

Detailed Description:

Study subjects will be asked to take Sulodexide twice a day. The Sulodexide will be taken in addition to the regular medications the subject is on. There will be no change in these other medications. The subject will also be asked to have blood tests each month to follow kidney function. The frequency of these tests is the normal/standard frequency for persons with MPGN II/DDD and is neither increased nor decreased because of participation in this study. The study will occur over 6 months for each subject.
