Background: Patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD) have increased risk for cardiovascular disease events and vascular dementia. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is a risk marker and possible risk mediator for cardiovascular (CV) disease, Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia. ALP has been reported to cross the blood brain barrier and to predict cognitive risk in CKD patients, potentially via vascular mechanisms or dephosphorylation of tau. Apabetalone is a bromodomain and extraterminal (BET) inhibitor selective for bromodomain 2, lowers ALP in a dose-response fashion and is being evaluated for prevention of CV disease events in the phase 3 BETonMACE trial. We examined baseline data from that trial to define the associations of ALP with CKD and cognitive function.
Methods: BETonMACE compares cardiovascular outcomes with apabetalone or placebo in 2425 patients with diabetes and acute coronary syndrome. CKD was defined by eGFR < 60 mL/min/1.73m2 . Cognition was assessed by the Montreal Cognitive Assessment tool (MoCA) in patients aged 70 and older at baseline (n=467) including in CKD patients (n=86).
Results: CKD was present in 11% (n=263) and was associated with age, female sex, longer history of diabetes, and higher ALP. Approximately half of the population showed MoCA score <26 suggesting early cognitive impairment. Lower MoCA score was associated with: a) higher ALP, and, b) with presence of CKD.
Conclusions: Elevated ALP is associated with poorer cognitive function and greater prevalence of CKD. Apabetalone, which lowers ALP, is being evaluated for effects on CV events, CKD, and cognitive function in the phase 3 BETonMACE trial reporting 2019.
