Patients with end-stage renal failure have a markedly higher mortality because of cardiovascular events in comparison with the normal population. Disorders in the calcium metabolism, such as calcification of the vessel walls, occur very frequently. There are indications that calcium channel blockers are capable of lowering the cardiovascular mortality in patients with end-stage renal failure.
It is intended to carry out a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multicenter study in order to find out if the calcium channel blocker amlodipine is able to reduce the mortality of patients with end-stage renal failure.
The investigation will be carried out after suitable explanation and written informed consent in 356 patients aged between 18 and 90 years with end-stage renal failure and chronic haemodialysis treatment. The patients will be randomized to either treatment with amlodipine 10 mg/day or placebo. The occurrence of events will be documented and evaluated prospectively over a period of 30 months.
