Method of Retarding the Progression of Chronic Renal Failure

The agents may be administered alone or in combination with a protein restricted and/or phosphorus restricted diet. Examples of suitable agents which either suppress production of glucocorticoids or block binding to their receptors include sodium valproate, enkephalins, opioids, clonidine, ketoconazole, oxytocin, and mifepristone.
