The purpose of this study is to observe the effects of niacinamide on markers of kidney injury, inflammation, kidney cyst growth and kidney function.

Study summary:

Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is a genetic disease that affects about 1 in 500 people worldwide. It can lead to kidney failure which can lead to death. PKD causes the development of kidney cysts (fluid-filled balloons), which cause worsening kidney function. It is common for people with PKD to also have blood in the urine, kidney pain, high blood pressure, kidney stones, kidney infections, and cysts in the brain or other parts of the body. There is currently no treatment known to stop cyst growth or a cure for the disease. Participants in this study will be randomly assigned to one of two groups: niacinamide or placebo. Participants have an equal chance of being assigned to either of the groups. For people that qualify and decide to participate in this study, they will be asked to make five visits to the study clinic and complete two study related phone calls over the course of 12 months.


Inclusion Criteria: - Confirmed diagnosis of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). - Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) > 50 ml/min/1.73m2 as determined from the serum creatinine by the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation - Provide Informed consent Exclusion Criteria: - History of liver disease or abnormal liver function test - Heavy alcohol intake - Chronic diarrhea or malabsorption syndrome - Thrombocytopenia - Hypophosphatemia - Pregnancy or lactation or plan to become pregnant during the study - Treatment with anti-epileptic drugs - Treatment with tolvaptan, current or within 2 months prior to screening - Participation in another interventional trial currently or within 2 months prior to screening.
