The change in brachial artery Flow Mediated Dilataion with paracalcitol (1mcg/day)compared with placebo for 3 months. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 12 weeks ]
We therefore propose a study of the effects of Zemplar compared to placebo in patients with diabetes and stage 3-4 CKD on endothelial function and markers of inflammation and oxidative stress. The finding will help not only guide and encourage such treatment in similar patients, but will give us fundamental mechanistic insights into the role of vitamin D in the pathogenesis of diabetes and CVD.

  • Biomarker Measurement [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 12 weeks ]

    Determine the prevalance of abnormalities in biomarkers of inflammation, oxidative stress and endothelial function in patients with CKD compared to a healthy population

    The following are the biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress to be measured in the secondary outcomes are:

    NFkB binding by mononuclear cells (MNC) ; ROS generation and p47phox expression by MNC plasma concentration of MMP-9, MCP-1, ICAM-1, IL-6 , CRP, ADMA and nitrotyrosine.. urinary isoprostane and plasma Nitrotyrosine in patients with CKD.

  • Biomarker Measurement [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks, and 12 weeks ]

    Compare the change in biomarkers of inflammation, oxidative stress and endothelial function with paracalcitol (1mcg/day) compared with placebo for 3 months in patients with CKD.

Effect Of Paricalcitol (Zemplar) On Endothelial Function And Inflammation In Type 2 Diabetes And Chronic Kidney Disease
EFFECT OF PARICALCITOL (ZEMPLAR) ON ENDOTHELIAL FUNCTION AND INFLAMMATION IN TYPE 2 DIABETES AND CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE

The purpose of this research study is to study the effects of paricalcitol on endothelial function and inflammation, cardiovascular risk factors which are associated with patient populations that have Type 2 diabetes and Stage 3 and 4 Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD).

Hypothesis 1: The state of CKD is associated with oxidative stress and inflammation and impaired post ischemic endothelium dependent flow mediated vasodilation which may contribute to atherogenesis.

Hypothesis 2: The administration of paracalcitol to patients with CKD will suppress oxidative stress and inflammation and improve endothelial function and thus contribute to an anti-atherogenic action.
