Abstract
Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is the leading cause of end-stage renal failure. Pentoxifylline (PTF) reduces clinical markers of glomerular and tubulo-interstitial injury, but its effects on DKD progression remain uncertain. We conducted an openlabel, prospective, randomized trial to determine whether PTF in addition to renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockade can slow progression of renal disease in type 2 diabetics with stages 3-4 CKD. Participants were randomly assigned to receive PTF (1200 mg/day) (n=82) or to a control group (n=87) for 2 years. At the end of the study, the eGFR decreased by a mean (SE) of 2.1 (0.4) ml/min/1.73m2 in the PTF group compared with 6.5 (0.4) ml/min/1.73m2 in the control group, with a between-group difference of 4.3 ml/min/1.73m2 (95% CI, 3.1 to 5.5; P<0.0001) in favor of PTF. This difference reached statistical significance at the first year, and was sustained thereafter. The proportion of patients with a reduction of the eGFR higher than the median rate of decline (0.16 ml/min/1.73m2 per month) was significantly lower in the PTF group respect to the control group (33.3% versus 68.2%; P<0.0001). Percent change in UAE was +5.7% (95% CI, -0.3 to +11.1) in the control group and -14.9% (95% CI, -20.4 to -9.4) in the PTF group (P=0.0001). In conclusion, among type 2 diabetic patients with advanced CKD, addition of PTF to RAS inhibitors for 2 years resulted in a lower decrease in eGFR and a greater reduction of residual albuminuria, and could be a novel renoprotective approach to reduce renal risk.
