Summary of "Identification of Risk Factors in High-Dose Methotrexate-Induced Acute Kidney Injury in Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia."

Although high-dose methotrexate (HDMTX) is an effective means for the treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the development of renal dysfunction remains a significant management challenge. This study aimed to identify the key factors in HDMTX-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) in childhood ALL.

A barbiturate with hypnotic and sedative properties (but not antianxiety). Adverse effects are mainly a consequence of dose-related CNS depression and the risk of dependence with continued use is high. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p565)

Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.

The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
