Celastrol, a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpene, has attracted considerable interest because it exhibits potent anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. However, the effects of celastrol in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) remain uninvestigated.

Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is characterized by progressive cyst formation and growth, leading to end-stage renal disease. A higher kidney volume is predictive of a more accel...
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is the most common hereditary kidney disease. The main mutational genes causing autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) are PKD1 and PKD2 as well as some r...
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is one of the most common genetic renal diseases and may be inherited in an autosomal dominant or autosomal recessive pattern. Pathogenic variants in two major genes, P...
Altered miRNA (miR) expression occurs in various diseases. However, the therapeutic effect of miRNAs in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is unclear. Genome-wide analyses of miRNA e...
Human autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is characterized by bilateral renal cysts that lead to a decline in kidney function. Previous studies reported aquaporin (AQP)-3 expression i...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common single gene disorder that is potentially fatal. ADPKD is caused by mutations in either of two genes (PKD1, PKD2). C...
This study will test to see if metformin is safe and if it is tolerated compared to placebo in adult Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) patients with beginning stages of ...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the medication pravastatin will ameliorate renal and cardiovascular disease over a 3-year period in children and young adults with autosom...
Autosomal-Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD) is the most common hereditary renal disease, characterized by the progressive development of fluid-filled cysts in the kidney leading t...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common monogenic hereditary kidney disease in humans. ADPKD may affect all the generations of the ADPKD family and the prob...
A non-hereditary KIDNEY disorder characterized by the abnormally dilated (ECTASIA) medullary and inner papillary portions of the collecting ducts. These collecting ducts usually contain CYSTS or DIVERTICULA filled with jelly-like material or small calculi (KIDNEY STONES) leading to infections or obstruction. It should be distinguished from congenital or hereditary POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.
Kidney disorders with autosomal dominant inheritance and characterized by multiple CYSTS in both KIDNEYS with progressive deterioration of renal function.
A complex disorder characterized by infertility, HIRSUTISM; OBESITY; and various menstrual disturbances such as OLIGOMENORRHEA; AMENORRHEA; ANOVULATION. Polycystic ovary syndrome is usually associated with bilateral enlarged ovaries studded with atretic follicles, not with cysts. The term, polycystic ovary, is misleading.
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)
The presence of apparently similar characters for which the genetic evidence indicates that different genes or different genetic mechanisms are involved in different pedigrees. In clinical settings genetic heterogeneity refers to the presence of a variety of genetic defects which cause the same disease, often due to mutations at different loci on the same gene, a finding common to many human diseases including ALZHEIMER DISEASE; CYSTIC FIBROSIS; LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE DEFICIENCY, FAMILIAL; and POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.

Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
