Drug may benefit kidney disease patients with diabetes
Drug may benefit kidney disease patients with diabetes (April 15, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From the Netherlands - The drug atrasentan may provide multiple health benefits for diabetics with kidney disease, according to a report published in the American Journal of the Society of Nephrology. Researchers randomized over 200 type 2 diabetics with kidney disease to either placebo, .75 mg/day of atrasenta, or 1.25 mg/day of atrasentan for 12 weeks. Results showed that the low dose of the drug lowered albuminuria by 36%, as well as blood pressure and cholesterol levels. These reductions occurred with no major side effects.
