Intestinal Transport of Microbial Metabolites in Chronic Kidney Disease
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||chronic kidney disease|

|Trial size||20 participants|

Chronic kidney disease is associated with the accumulation of various metabolites, i.e., uremic retention solutes. Evidence is mounting that the colonic microbiome contributes substantially to these uremic retention solutes. Indoxyl sulfate and p-cresyl sulfate are among the most extensively studied gut microbial metabolites, and are associated with cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease progression and overall mortality. Mechanisms governing their intestinal uptake and metabolism, however, are currently unknown. The investigators aim to explore these transport characteristics in depth. Therefore, colonic biopsies will be sampled of patients with chronic kidney disease, analyzed and compared to available data of healthy controls. Insights in the mechanisms controlling intestinal transport and metabolism of indoxyl sulfate and p-cresyl sulfate is certainly relevant as it might lead to novel therapeutic targets in the treatment of chronic kidney disease.
