The Renal Association Clinical Trials Committee aims to:
- Provide a forum for development and conduct of renal clinical trials
- Liaise with other specialist societies (e.g. British Society for Rheumatology, UK Myeloma Forum/British Society for Haematology, British Transplantation Society)
- Offer input to Renal Association members who wish to pursue ideas for clinical trials such as providing help/advice with trial design
The committee receives funding from the Renal Association and from Kidney Research UK.
SHARP study results: The results of the Study of Heart And Renal Protection (SHARP) will be presented at the late-breaking clinical trials session at the American Society of Nephrology in Denver on Saturday 20th November 2010 at 1205 pm in the Wells Fargo Theatre. SHARP is the largest double-blind randomized controlled trial in patients with CKD to date. It enrolled 9438 participants in 18 countries, of whom approximately two-thirds were pre-dialysis at the time of recruitment. It aims to assess the effects of cholesterol-lowering therapy with a combination of simvastatin and the cholesterol absorption inhibitor ezetimibe on cardiovascular and renal outcomes.
