Influence of T-calcium channel blocker treatment on deterioration of renal function in chronic kidney disease.

Some calcium channel blockers (CCBs) have renoprotective effects. Our aim was to compare the effects of different subclasses of CCBs on the deterioration of renal function in chronic kidney disease (CKD). This is a prospective, observational cohort study in a single center. The subjects were 107 nondiabetic CKD patients. The rate of deterioration of estimated glomerular filtration rate (DeltaeGFR) was calculated by [last visit eGFR - baseline eGFR/follow-up duration]. Multivariate analysis was performed using the change in urinary protein (DeltaUP) and DeltaeGFR during follow-up as response variables. CCB subclasses were L-type in 76 patients, T- and L-type in 28 patients, and nondihydropyridines in 6 patients. Multiregression analysis indicated that higher baseline proteinuria (UP) and the use of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin II receptor blockers were associated with the decrease of UP, while the use of L-type CCBs, prednisolone, and probucol was associated with the increase of UP. The use of T- and L-type CCBs, ACEIs and diuretics was associated with a good outcome in terms of DeltaeGFR, whereas chronic glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, and higher baseline eGFR and UP were associated with a poor outcome. It is suggested that the use of T- and L-type CCB among other subclasses may improve the outcome of patients with nondiabetic CKD in terms of renal function.
