Boise Kidney & Hypertension Institute’s Research Division aims to set the standard in clinical research. With an overriding concern for patient safety, BKHI Research Division provides premier research professionals to conduct all clinical trial related activities with the utmost accuracy and timeliness, while ensuring personable and professional patient care and conduct.
Boise Kidney has been conducting research in the Treasure Valley since opening in 2005. Our team has written and conducted investigator initiated trials to further the areas of chronic kidney disease, anemia management, and dialysis treatment standards of care. Boise Kidney has also participated in many pharmaceutical sponsored clinical research trials for a variety of indications including: Anemia, Catheter Occlusion, Home Hemodialysis, Artery Calcification, Diabetes, and Hypertension.
Under the direction of Arnold Silva, MD, PhD, Boise Kidney & Hypertension Institute partners with Frenova Renal Research to conduct clinical trials. Frenova Renal Research, a Fresenius Medical Care North America company, is the only Phase I-IV drug and device clinical development services provider dedicated exclusively to renal research. Frenova provides access to the largest renal research site network in the world.
Boise Kidney & Hypertension Institute is a member of the Frenova F1RST Up alliance, a highly select group of sites chosen for their expertise in renal research and track record of rapid patient recruitment and retention.

- Sponsor: inRegen – T2DM, Diabetic NephropathyMulti-center, prospective, open-label, randomized, double-arm, deferred treatment study whereby eligible subjects will be randomized 1:1 after kidney biopsy to receive up to 2 injections of NKA (made from expanded autologous selected renal cells) into the biopsied kidney beginning as soon as NKA can be prepared, or the same series of up to 2 injections given 6 months (+4 weeks) apart beginning 12 months after renal biopsy.

- Sponsor: inRegen – T2DM, Diabetic NephropathyTherapeutic intervention with NKA is intended to delay the need for renal replacement therapy (dialysis or transplant) which, based on the current standard of care, is inevitable for patients with end stage CKD. The purpose of the present study is to assess the safety and efficacy of up to 2 injections of NKA given 6 months (+4 weeks) apart (maximum).

- Sponsor: BayerIn this study researchers want to learn about the safety of drug Osocimab at low and high doses in adult participants with kidney disease undergoing regular dialysis (a procedure that uses a machine to get rid of toxins and extra fluids in the blood). Patients with kidney disease undergoing regular dialysis are at high risk for heart and blood vessels diseases. Osocimab is a human monoclonal antibody under development for the prevention of events caused by blood clots like heart attack, stroke and death due to heart or blood vessels diseases. It works by binding to and blocking the activated form of clotting factor XI which increases the formation and stability of clots. Researchers also want to find out how drug Osocimab works in human body and how the body absorbs, distributes and excretes the drug.
