Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Acute Kidney Injury
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
Stress Disorders, Post-traumatic
A class of traumatic stress disorders with symptoms that last more than one month. There are various forms of post-traumatic stress disorder, depending on the time of onset and the duration of these stress symptoms. In the acute form, the duration of the symptoms is between 1 to 3 months. In the chronic form, symptoms last more than 3 months. With delayed onset, symptoms develop more than 6 months after the traumatic event.
Renal Insufficiency, Chronic
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
A post-MORULA preimplantation mammalian embryo that develops from a 32-cell stage into a fluid-filled hollow ball of over a hundred cells. A blastocyst has two distinctive tissues. The outer layer of trophoblasts gives rise to extra-embryonic tissues. The inner cell mass gives rise to the embryonic disc and eventual embryo proper.
Kidney Failure, Acute
A severe stage of acute renal insufficiency, characterized by the sudden decrease in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min, sometime to less than 1 to 2 ml per min. It is usually associated with OLIGURIA; EDEMA; and increase in BLOOD UREA NITROGEN and serum CREATININE concentrations.
BACKGROUND: Allograft function following renal transplantation is commonly monitored using serum creatinine. Multiple cross-sectional studies have shown that serum cystatin C is...
Kidney transplantation is generally considered the best option for most patients with end-stage renal disease requiring renal replacement therapy, even for patients with graft failure. Here, we descri...
BACKGROUND: Kidneys from pediatric donors weighing 15 kg can be safely transplanted as single kidneys. However, single kidney transplantation from donors weighing 10-14 kg is controversial and has n...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) diagnosis is based on an increase in serum creatinine or a decrease in urine output. To be effective, treatment of AKI should be started very early after the insult and well...

Patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) who progress rapidly to end stage renal disease (ESRD) are at highest risk for development of recurrence of proteinuria following ki...
Chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) is the leading cause of longterm renal transplant loss. Angiotensin-II may play a role in the development and progression of CAN. Angiotensin converting...
Among the different creatinine-based GFR predicting equations, the MDRD equation gives the best prediction in renal transplantation but does not provide the level of accuracy usually seen...
This study is being done to create a kidney transplant database with information from many transplant centers for the purpose of studying ways to help improve transplant outcomes and the c...
The purpose of this study is to study the effects of Paricalcitol (Zemplar) on kidney functioning. The investigators hypothesize that the increase in serum creatinine observed in recent p...
