Uremic Pruritus Understanding

Uremic Pruritus: Overview

Uremic Pruritus, also known as chronic kidney disease- associated pruritus (CKD-aP) is more of a symptom associated with advanced or end-stage renal disease that adversely affects the quality of life of patients. It has been reported that more than 40% of people undergoing hemodialysis experience uremic pruritus.


Symptoms associated with uremic pruritus are the daily bouts of itching that worsen at night and may hinder sleep. The itch may mostly be localized to one part of the body such as head, back, abdomen, and/or arms. The skin may look normal or present with xerosis marked with multiple sores or marks.


Uremic pruritus is diagnosed as the itch directly related to kidney disease and with the absence of any other comorbid conditions to associate with the itching. Uremic pruritus may have variable presentation, which may be difficult to diagnose.


The treatment of uremic pruritus may include to optimize the dialysis efficacy first to reduce serum parathyroid hormone to reduce the amount of phosphorous/calcium. Dry skin can be taken care of by the application of emollients and non-soap cleaners. UVB phototherapy and prescription of some drugs may also be done.

Report Highlights

The companies and academics are working to assess challenges and seek opportunities that could influence Uremic Pruritus R&D. The therapies under development are focused on novel approaches to treat/improve Uremic Pruritus.

Uremic Pruritus Emerging Drugs Chapters

This segment of the Uremic Pruritus report encloses its detailed analysis of various drugs in different stages of clinical development, including phase III, II, I, preclinical and Discovery. It also helps to understand clinical trial details, expressive pharmacological action, agreements and collaborations, and the latest news and press releases.

Uremic Pruritus Emerging Drugs

CR845: Cara Therapeutics

CR845, also known as KORSUVA, is in the preregistration phase of the drug development process. The drug belongs to the class of kappa opioid receptor agonists to treat the itch associated with uremic pruritus in a new way. KORSUVA IV has shown positive results in phase III trials and the efficacy of the same drug in the tablet form is being tested in the Phase II trial for non-hemodialysis patients.

LT 5001: Lumosa Therpaeutics

Lumos Therapeutics’ LT 5001, is a drug candidate for uremic pruritus. The drug has received Taiwan FDA approval for conducting Ib/2 trial. It is being developed to be applied topically. It is a partial mu-opioid antagonist and kappa-opioid agonist. The formulation is thought to have the ability to modulate opioid receptors that are there on immune cells and sensory nerves.
