  • Learn How Well the Treatment Combination of Finerenone and Empagliflozin Works and How Safe it is Compared to Each Treatment Alone in Adult Participants With Long-term Kidney Disease (Chronic Kidney Disease) and Type 2 Diabetes

    Sorry, not currently recruiting here

    Finerenone works by blocking a group of proteins, called mineralocorticoid receptor. An increased stimulation of mineralocorticoid receptor is known to trigger injury and inflammation in the kidney and is therefore thought to play a role in CKD. Empagliflozin lowers blood sugar levels by increasing the excretion of glucose from the blood into the urine. In this study, the researchers want to learn how well the combination of finerenone and empagliflozin helps to slow down the worsening of the participants' kidney function compared to either treatment alone. For this, the level of protein in the urine will be measured. The investigators also want to know how safe the combination is compared to either treatment alone. Depending on the treatment group, the participants will either take the combination of finerenone and empagliflozin, or finerenone together with a placebo, or empagliflozin together with a placebo, once a day as tablets by mouth. A placebo looks like a treatment but does not have any medicine in it. Importantly, the participants will also continue to take their other current medicine for CKD and T2D. The participants will be in the study for up to 7.5 months and will take the study treatments for 6 months. During the study, participants will visit the study site 7 times. The study team will: - collect blood and urine samples - check the participants' vital signs - do a physical examination including height and weight - check the participants' heart health by using an electrocardiogram (ECG) - monitor the participants' blood pressure - ask the participants questions about how they are feeling and what adverse events they may be having An adverse event is any problem that happens during the trial. Doctors keep track of all events that happen in trials, even if they do not think the events might be related to the study treatments.

  • COHERE - COntextualized Care in cHcs' Electronic Health REcords

    Sorry, in progress, not accepting new patients

    This study was designed to develop and test clinical decision support (CDS) tools that present clinical care team members with a given patient's social risk information and recommend care plan adaptations based on those risks. This study will test the hypothesis that providing care team members with CDS about patients' known social risks will result in improved outcomes. This study's primary outcomes are hypertension and diabetes control, but the results will have implications for a wide range of morbidities.

  • AI Ready and Equitable Atlas for Diabetes Insights

    Sorry, accepting new patients by invitation only

    The study will collect a cross-sectional dataset of 4000 people across the US from diverse racial/ethnic groups who are either 1) healthy, or 2) belong in one of the three stages of diabetes severity (pre-diabetes/diet controlled, oral medication and/or non-insulin-injectable medication controlled, or insulin dependent), forming a total of four groups of patients. Clinical data (social determinants of health surveys, continuous glucose monitoring data, biomarkers, genetic data, retinal imaging, cognitive testing, etc.) will be collected. The purpose of this project is data generation to allow future creation of artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) algorithms aimed at defining disease trajectories and underlying genetic links in different racial/ethnic cohorts. A smaller subgroup of participants will be invited to come for a follow-up visit in year 4 of the project (longitudinal arm of the study). Data will be placed in an open-source repository and samples will be sent to the study sample repository and used for future research.
