Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this trial is to assess the impact of CRMD-001 on markers of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) in high-risk patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) undergoing coronary angiography and PCI.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury Drug: CRMD-001-Deferiprone Drug: Placebo Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This trial will evaluate whether treatment with CRMD-001 (unique formulations of the iron chelator, Deferiprone) will reduce the incidence of AKI in subjects with CKD and additional risk factors. Adult subjects with moderate to severe CKD who are undergoing coronary angiography and PCI will be randomized to either placebo or CRMD-001 and followed for 90 days. Subjects will receive 8 days of randomized therapy starting 1-3 hours prior to angiography. The primary endpoint of the trial will be the difference in mean paired change of a panel of sensitive renal biomarkers between the groups. Differences in renal or cardiovascular clinical events will also be evaluated.

Drug Information available for: Deferiprone

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: CRMD-001-Deferiprone Drug: CRMD-001-Deferiprone
CRMD-001 represents unique formulations of Deferiprone. Subjects will be given one (900 mg) immediate release and two (900 mg) extended release tablets 1-3 hours prior to angiography and then every 12 hours for a total of 8 days

Placebo Comparator: Placebo Drug: Placebo
3 placebo tablets will be given every 12 hours for a total of 8 days, beginning 1-3 hours prior to angiography

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Biomarker evidence of Acute Kidney injury [ Time Frame: 8 Days ]
    Mean paired change in a panel of acute kidney injury (AKI) biomarkers (urinary NGAL, LFABP, interleukin-18 (IL-18), kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1), urinary alpha GST (proximal tubular injury), Pi GST (distal tubular injury) and cystatin C; serum cystatin C) from baseline (Day 1) to peak in the deferiprone and placebo treatment groups, within 192 hours of contrast exposure

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Incidence of Acute Kidney Injury [ Time Frame: 48 hours ]
    Incidence of AKI defined as an absolute increase in serum Cr of ≥ 0.3 mg/dL, and/or a 50% relative increase in serum Cr from baseline (Day 1) to a maximum value obtained within 48 hours of contrast exposure
