HALT Progression of Polycystic Kidney Disease (HALT PKD) Study A
Polycystic Kidney Disease-Treatment Network

The efficacy of interruption of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) on the progression of cystic disease and on the decline in renal function in autosomal dominant kidney disease (ADPKD) will be assessed in two multicenter randomized clinical trials targeting different levels of kidney function: 1) early disease defined by GFR >60 mL/min/1.73 m2 (Study A); and 2) moderately advanced disease defined by GFR 25-60 mL/min/1.73 m2 (Study B; NCT01885559). Participants will be recruited and enrolled, either to Study A or B, over the first three years. Participants enrolled in Study A will be followed for at least 5 years, while those enrolled in Study B will be followed for five-to-eight years, with the average length of follow-up being six and a half years. The two concurrent randomized clinical trials differ by eligibility criteria, interventions and outcomes to be studied.

* Specific Aims of Study A

To study the efficacy of ACE-I/ARB combination therapy as compared to ACE-I monotherapy and usual vs. low blood pressure targets on the percent change in kidney volume in participants with preserved renal function (GFR >60 mL/min/1.73m2)and high-normal blood pressure or hypertension (>130/80 mm Hg).

* Hypotheses to be tested in Study A

In ADPKD individuals with hypertension or high-normal blood pressure and relatively preserved renal function (GFR >60 mL/min/1.73 m2), multi-level blockade of the RAAS using ACE-I/ARB combination therapy will delay progression of cystic disease as compared to ACE-I monotherapy, and a low blood pressure goal will delay progression as compared with standard control.
