Blood Pressure clinical trials at UC Health
4 in progress, 3 open to eligible people
Pilot to Examine Risk and Feasibility of Remote Management of BP From Childhood Into Early Adulthood
open to eligible people ages 13-30
Hypertension is an increasingly common problem in children, especially among those who are obese or with diabetes and chronic kidney disease. This study is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether improved blood pressure control can be achieved with the use of remote home blood pressure monitoring in children with uncontrolled blood pressure.
open to eligible people ages 16 years and up
The transition from chronic kidney disease (CKD) to end-stage renal disease ESRD is a vulnerable and challenging period of time for patients and providers. Suboptimal control of blood pressure is known to be common in patients with the advanced stages of CKD, and may contribute to their elevated risk of progression to ESRD, cardiovascular morbidity, and mortality. This proposal is a pilot randomized controlled trial designed to test whether intensive blood pressure lowering is feasible and safe in patients with advanced CKD as they transition to ESRD.
open to eligible people ages 18-62
This study will test the effect of race-based social rejection on polysomnography derived sleep outcomes and nocturnal cardiovascular psychophysiology in a sample of 80 African Americans and 80 Caucasian Americans. The investigators will test group differences on these outcomes as well as within subjects by testing impact of rejection compared to a non-rejection control night in the sleep laboratory.
Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients
The American Heart Association guidelines for high blood pressure (BP) currently recommend using angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEi) or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) as first-line therapy for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3 or above. However, the prevalence of ACEi and ARB use in patients with CKD stage 4 or 5 is low, and current BP guidelines acknowledge the lack of solid evidence to support the benefit of using these agents in advanced CKD.This study seeks to conduct a pilot trial to determine the safety and feasibility of ACEi and/or ARB continuation (intervention) versus withdrawal (control) in patients with advanced CKD.
