Barack-D Trial

We are currently recruiting patients for the Barack-D trial in collaboration with the Primary Care Clinical Trials Unit at the University of Oxford.  Barack-D means “Benefits of Aldosterone Receptor Antagonism in Chronic Kidney Disease”.  Many patients have impaired functioning of their kidneys and this trial explores the use of a well-known diuretic (water tablet) called spironolactone as a treatment to prevent complications associated with reduced kidney function.  If you have a level of reduced kidney function called CKD-3B, then you may receive a letter from us asking you to consider participating in this trial, and we do hope that you will give this serious consideration.  Half of the patients recruited will be randomly allocated to receive the additional treatment with spironolactone and half will continue with standard care alone.  The trial continues for a period of three years.  Click here for further information on the Barack-D website.
