Executive Summary

CKD-mineral bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is closely linked to the progression of CKD and the development of cardiovascular disease in children and adults. Management of CKD-MBD is unquestionably suboptimal and the current investigators have proposed a novel treatment paradigm. They have undertaken a clinical trial to test the paradigm. This initiative is intended to permit successful completion of the FIT4KiD multisite clinical trial by providing extended funding to the Data Coordinating Center as the clinical enrolling sites continue to accrue patients.
