Aneurysms in ARPKD
The primary goal of this research study is to learn if patients with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) are at risk for brain aneurysms or cardiovascular abnormalities.
CHOP is partnering with Children's National Medical Center (CNMC) to create a research database of data and blood samples of people who have autosomal polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) or another hepato/renal fibrocystic disease (HRFD).
Cure Glomerulonephropathy Network (CureGN) is a multi-year study of 2,400 children and adults with four rare glomerular (kidney) diseases at over 50 centers in the US, Canada, and Italy.
The purpose of this NIH-funded placebo-controlled clinical trial is to determine how well ferric citrate will lower FGF23, correct anemia and iron levels in the blood, and maintain normal levels of phosphate in children with CKD.
Novel Imaging Techniques in Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease
In this study, we are developing new ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to measure kidney and liver disease severity in autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD).
Optimizing Vancomycin Therapy in Children
Vancomycin is a commonly administered antibiotic in critically ill children, but it can have unwanted side effects on the kidney (acute kidney injury).
Prevention of Urinary Stones with Hydration
This is a randomized controlled trial that tests whether a program designed to maintain a high fluid intake decreases kidney stone recurrence.
