Effects of valsartan on progression of kidney disease in Japanese hypertensive patients with advanced, predialysis, chronic kidney disease: Kanagawa Valsartan Trial (KVT)

Suppression of the renin–angiotensin system is known to slow progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, few trials have been performed with Japanese patients. This study investigated whether the angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) valsartan would delay the progression of kidney disease more effectively than conventional treatment in Japanese hypertensive patients with advanced, predialysis CKD. In a multicenter, randomized, open-label trial, 303 patients with hypertension and CKD with serum creatinine levels greater than or equal to2.0?mg?dl-1 were assigned to receive either conventional therapy plus valsartan (valsartan add-on group) or conventional therapy without ARB (control group).  [Actualizado: 15 de marzo 2013]
