Hyperkalemia Trials in Phoenix
Aventiv Research is currently participating in a hyperkalemia study at our Phoenix, AZ location. Hyperkalemia is the medical term that describes a potassium level in your blood that’s higher than normal. Potassium helps your nerves and muscles, including your heart, work the right way. In the early stages of kidney disease, the kidneys can often make up for high potassium. But as kidney function gets worse, they may not be able to remove enough potassium from your body. Advanced kidney disease is a common cause of hyperkalemia. Advances in drug therapy are key to treating this disease in its early stages and preventing further damage.
Hyperkalemia Clinical Trial
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and pharmacodynamics of an investigational drug in different dose combinations to identify the best dose combination for further evaluation. The study will also assess the safety and efficacy of a 4-week treatment of the investigational drug at the optimal dose combination in patients with hyperkalemia. You maybe be eligible to participate in this study if you:
- Are 18 to 85 years of age
- Have chronic kidney disease
- Have high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia) between 5.1 to <6.5 mmol/L at screening
