A pathogenic role of B cells in non-genetic nephrotic syndrome has been suggested by the efficacy of rituximab, a B cell depleting antibody, in maintaining a prolonged remission. However, little infor...
The optimal therapeutic regimen for children at onset of idiopathic nephrotic syndrome (INS) is still under debate. A better knowledge of the disease's course is necessary to design more appropriate a...
Long-Term Follow-Up in Childhood Cancer Survivors - Position paper 2018 of the working group "long-term follow-up" of the Society of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology (GPOH) on long-term surveillance, long-term follow-up and late effect evaluation in pediatric oncology patients.
Nowadays, childhood cancer patients survive much more often than they did 40 years ago. Therefore, the cure rates rise over 80%. Approximately 33,000 cured childhood cancer patients are documented by ...
The standard International Study of Kidney Disease in Children (ISKDC) regimen of prednisolone of 2 months duration for the treatment of the initial episode of Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (INS) was ...
Endocrine complications, including diabetes and metabolic syndrome, are highly prevalent in childhood cancer survivors. These metabolic derangements may contribute to survivors' risk of excess cardiov...
CHILDNEPH is a pan-Canadian project to observe clinical care for children with nephrotic syndrome. Previous studies have indicated that there is wide practice variation in how health care ...
Parallel group double blind randomised in patients with first episode corticosteroid sensitive nephrotic syndrome comparing time to relapse and adverse effects associated with a longer tap...
Nephrotic syndrome (NS) is among the most common pediatric kidney diseases and is defined as massive proteinuria (>40 mg/m2/h or urine protein to creatinine ratio >2 g/g) leading to hypoal...
In childhood nephrotic syndrome, the kidneys leak protein, causing body swelling and a variety of possible complications such as infection, blood clots, and kidney failure. The first-line...
Idiopathic Nephrotic Syndrome (INS) is the first glomerulopathy in children and 60% of the patients develop Steroid-Dependant Nephrotic Syndrome (SDNS). Recently, rituximab (RTX), a humani...
A condition characterized by severe PROTEINURIA, greater than 3.5 g/day in an average adult. The substantial loss of protein in the urine results in complications such as HYPOPROTEINEMIA; generalized EDEMA; HYPERTENSION; and HYPERLIPIDEMIAS. Diseases associated with nephrotic syndrome generally cause chronic kidney dysfunction.
Health insurance to provide full or partial coverage for long-term home care services or for long-term nursing care provided in a residential facility such as a nursing home.
Persons who have experienced prolonged survival of HIV infection. This includes the full spectrum of untreated, HIV-infected long-term asymptomatics to those with AIDS who have survived due to successful treatment.
A persistent increase in synaptic efficacy, usually induced by appropriate activation of the same synapses. The phenomenological properties of long-term potentiation suggest that it may be a cellular mechanism of learning and memory.
A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.
Pediatrics is the general medicine of childhood. Because of the developmental processes (psychological and physical) of childhood, the involvement of parents, and the social management of conditions at home and at school, pediatrics is a specialty. With ...
