Death or renal replacement therapy or sustained kidney injury [ Time Frame: Over six months following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Sustained kidney injury is two sequential 20% reduction of eGFR from baseline as calculated from change in sertum creatinine at least three weeks after receiving IP.
  • Primary: Serum creatinine [ Time Frame: Over six months following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Renal replacement therapy (e.g., renal dialysis or other dialysis) [ Time Frame: Over a six month period following treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

  • A comparison between the treatments for length of hospital stay, post contrast. [ Time Frame: Over six months after the treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • A comparison between the treatments of the time to renal replacement therapy (any type) or death (whichever occurs first) over the 6-month observation period. [ Time Frame: six months after receiving IP ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
Renal replacement therapy (eg, renal dialysis) [ Time Frame: Over six months after the treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Evaluation of Sodium Bicarbonate to Reduce the Incidence of Contrast Induced Chronic Kidney Injury in Patients With Kidney Disease
Evaluation of Sodium Bicarbonate to Reduce Chronic Kidney Injury in Subjects With Advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Who Are Undergoing Angiography
Patients with Stage 3B, 4,or 5 Chronic Kidney Disease who are to undergo an angiography procedure with contrast agent will be asked if they are willing to join the trial. If so they will be screened and randomized to receive either sodium bicarbonate or saline before, during and after the contrast media is given. They will be asked for serum samples 1 to 3 days, 7, 30, 90 and 180 days after the procedure to evaluate whether the sodium bicarbonate has reduced the incidence of contrast induced chronic kidney disease by measuring their serum creatinine, as well as whether they have required renal dialysis or other renal replacement therapy.

Phase 3
Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
Contrast Induced Kidney Injury.
Drug: sodium bicarbonate
Serum creatinine will be measured on Days 3,7, 30, 90, and 180
  • Active Comparator: Saline infusion
    Saline will be given as an active control agent to compare with sodium bicarbonate. Each bag of solution will be blinded, and given in the same manner.
    Intervention: Drug: sodium bicarbonate
  • Experimental: Sodium Bicarbonate
    Infusion of sodium bicarbonate will be given prior to,during and after the contrast agent for a total of 6 to 10 hours
    Intervention: Drug: sodium bicarbonate
