Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to determine whether vitamin K supplementation will improve anticoagulation control in patients on hemodialysis taking warfarin for atrial fibrillation. Patients who participate will receive vitamin K1 three times a week on dialysis days for a period of four months. INR levels collected during this period will be compared to the four month period prior to receiving the vitamin K1 to determine if vitamin K improves the standard deviation of INRs and time in therapeutic range.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
End Stage Renal Failure on Dialysis Atrial Fibrillation Drug: vitamin K1 Phase 2

Detailed Description:

Patients on hemodialysis with atrial fibrillation are at increased risk of stroke. These patients often take warfarin to reduce this risk. Warfarin is a drug that is used to prevent clots in the bloodstream. The dose of warfarin varies from person to person, and its effect is measured using a blood test called the international normalized ratio (INR). In most patients with atrial fibrillation the goal is to keep the INR between 2 and 3. Patients on hemodialysis often have unstable INR levels. Vitamin K supplementation has been shown to improve INR control in patients on warfarin but has not yet been studied in hemodialysis patients.

In this study, patients on hemodialysis receiving warfarin for atrial fibrillation will receive vitamin K 400 mcg orally three times a week on dialysis days for 4 months. INR levels in the four months before and the four months while receiving vitamin K will be reviewed.

The primary end point will look at INR stability and be measured by calculating the standard deviation of INR values before and after receiving vitamin K. The goal of this study is to determine whether vitamin K supplementation improves INR control in patients on hemodialysis taking warfarin for atrial fibrillation.
