Study Summary

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Identifying new treatments for DKD to be used alone or in combination with other therapies is a high priority. Inflammation plays a key role in DKD and targeting pro-inflammatory lipid mediators called leukotrienes may represent a promising therapy for DKD. The current proposal will investigate whether montelukast, a leukotriene antagonist, reduces proteinuria and improves vascular function and arterial stiffness in patients with DKD.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
