Thousands Of Cats With Kidney Disease Sought For Groundbreaking Clinical Trial
Date:5/2/2013

RALEIGH, N.C., May 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The largest known veterinary clinical trial of its kind with 35 study sites in the United States and Canada is currently evaluating cats with kidney disease to determine if they also have hypertension (high blood pressure). Kidney disease and hypertension often occur together, especially in older cats. Hypertension has been called a "silent killer" and is difficult to diagnose because there are no visible clinical signs in cats.  As in humans, if left untreated, hypertension in cats can lead to serious consequences, including blindness, heart disease, bleeding in the brain, seizures, worsening of kidney disease, and even death.  There are currently no treatments approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for hypertension associated with kidney disease in cats, so veterinarians must treat this condition with off-label drugs.  This clinical trial, however, is seeking to change that by evaluating a new, easy-to-administer liquid medication for feline hypertension with the goal of gaining FDA approval. 

Study seeks to contribute to future improvements in feline health
This large FDA-regulated clinical trial will likely screen thousands of cats to help provide important evidence-based research that may lead to new insights, treatments, and improvements in patient health.  If feline hypertension is diagnosed and treated early, then irreversible organ damage may be prevented.

"Hypertension is a serious problem that is frequently associated with kidney disease and hyperthyroidism in cats," says Dr. Scott Brown , a veterinarian and researcher at the College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Georgia, who is board certified in internal medicine and specializes in feline h
