Vascular calcification, vitamin K, phosphate binders and MGP

- candidate number21131
- NTR NumberNTR5004
- ISRCTNISRCTN no longer applicable
- Date ISRCTN created
- date ISRCTN requested
- Date Registered NTR9-dec-2014
- Secondary IDsNL3681009413 
- Public TitleVascular calcification, vitamin K, phosphate binders and MGP
- Scientific TitleRole of different phosphate binders on absorption of vitamin K, metabolism of matrix γ-carboxy-glutamaat (Gla) proteďne (MGP)
- ACRONYMVascular calcification, vitamin K, phosphate binders and MGP
- hypothesisThis research will have as aim to look at progression or decrease in vascular calcification in dialysis population with use different phosphate binders. There is a possibility that different binders bind vitamin K in a different way in intestinal tract and thereby cause different level of calcification. Better insight in mechanisms of vascular calcification under circumstance can lead to therapeutic options which inhibit calcification and benefit survival of dialysis patients.

- Interventionstreatment with calciumcarbonate or lanthanum carbonate with supplemantation of vitamin K
- Primary outcomeAbsolute difference between serum level of dp-ucMGP and PIVKA II at week 8 between phosphate binder groups (between group analysis).

- Timepointsstart: start with one of the phosphate binders
8 weeks: change of phosphate binder
16 weeks: start vitamin K2 supplemantation
20 weeks: end of trial

- Brief summaryVascular calcification (VC) is a problem in patients with chronic kidney disease especially in end stage kidney disease. VC is associated with increased mortality. In recent literature there is vascular calcification which progresses with use of phosphate binders. There are some small studies which have shown that phosphate binders can bind vitamin K as well. Vitamin K is necessary in the vessel wall to counteract VC. In this trial we are taking a better look at this interaction, because if phosphate binders bind vitamin K this can cause VC.
