Evaluation of Sodium Bicarbonate to Reduce the Incidence of Contrast Induced Chronic Kidney Injury in Patients With Kidney Disease (BOSS)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT00930436

Brief Summary:
Patients with Stage 3B, 4,or 5 Chronic Kidney Disease who are to undergo an angiography procedure with contrast agent will be asked if they are willing to join the trial. If so they will be screened and randomized to receive either sodium bicarbonate or saline before, during and after the contrast media is given. They will be asked for serum samples 1 to 3 days, 7, 30, 90 and 180 days after the procedure to evaluate whether the sodium bicarbonate has reduced the incidence of contrast induced chronic kidney disease by measuring their serum creatinine, as well as whether they have required renal dialysis or other renal replacement therapy.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: Saline infusion
Saline will be given as an active control agent to compare with sodium bicarbonate. Each bag of solution will be blinded, and given in the same manner.
Drug: sodium bicarbonate
Serum creatinine will be measured on Days 3,7, 30, 90, and 180

Experimental: Sodium Bicarbonate
Infusion of sodium bicarbonate will be given prior to,during and after the contrast agent for a total of 6 to 10 hours
Drug: sodium bicarbonate
Serum creatinine will be measured on Days 3,7, 30, 90, and 180

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Death or renal replacement therapy or sustained kidney injury [ Time Frame: Over six months following treatment ]
    Sustained kidney injury is two sequential 20% reduction of eGFR from baseline as calculated from change in sertum creatinine at least three weeks after receiving IP.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. A comparison between the treatments for length of hospital stay, post contrast. [ Time Frame: Over six months after the treatment ]
  2. A comparison between the treatments of the time to renal replacement therapy (any type) or death (whichever occurs first) over the 6-month observation period. [ Time Frame: six months after receiving IP ]
