Do you have type 1 diabetes and kidney disease?
Diabetic kidney disease is an important health challenge. There is a great need to develop new treatment strategies because, even with current treatments, there may be progressive decrease in kidney function. This could lead to kidney failure needing dialysis or kidney transplantation. In one form of diabetic kidney disease, there is leakage of abnormal amounts of protein into the urine (called “albuminuria”). The study drug is aimed at lowering urinary albumin leak and to slow down the decrease of kidney function associated with diabetic kidney disease. In summary we are testing whether a new tablet can help to treat diabetic kidney disease.
Participants will randomly be allocated to receive either the new tablet or a placebo. This is a double-blind study which means that neither you nor your study doctor will know which treatment you are receiving. The project is designed this way to ensure that researchers interpret the results in a fair and appropriate way and avoids study doctors or participants jumping to conclusions.
