After reactivation the BK-polyomavirus (BKPyV) associated nephropathy (PyVAN) is observed in 1-10% of renal transplant recipients, of which up to 80% undergo graft failure. BKPyV reactivation after renal transplantation was associated with donor-derived serotypes against which the recipient has no immunological protection. However, PyVAN risk assessment seroactivity testing is a time-consuming and cost intensive process.

Renal dysfunction more frequently occurs after intestinal transplantation (ITx) than after heart, lung, or liver transplantation. We provide a clinical analysis of renal function after adult ITx.
Pediatric renal transplantation has been heavily published since the 1950s. Herein, we describe the bibliometrics and impact of the 200 most-cited pediatric renal transplantation manuscripts.
The outcome of nephron-sparing surgical management of small renal masses is generally favorable, specifically in terms of long term renal function, overall survival, and oncologic outcomes. Given the ...
The discovery of apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1) gene variants and its association with kidney disease in African-Americans represents a significant breakthrough in understanding the genetic basis of ancest...
Trichodysplasia spinulosa (TS) is a rare cutaneous condition associated with the TSPyV and characterized by skin-colored, folliculocentric papules with keratin spicule formation. TS is seen almost exc...
Cardiovascular disease after renal transplantation is an important problem. Patients after renal transplantation with low LDL-Levels (
Following heart transplantation many patients develop acute renal failure in the early posttransplant phase and some are in need of renal replacement therapy for shorter or longer time. Th...
The aim of this study was to show additional diagnostic criteria of computed tomography (CT) scan to diagnose and predict the detection and recurrence of cystic renal cell carcinoma in the...
Patients with terminal chronic kidney disease (CRD) need renal function supplementation, namely dialysis or renal transplantation. Transplantation is the most efficient and cost-effective ...
After renal transplantation 5 to 10% of patients experience allograft rejection. Rapid and accurate diagnosis is vital for implementation of additional immunosuppressive therapy. Currently...
General dysfunction of an organ occurring immediately following its transplantation. The term most frequently refers to renal dysfunction following KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.
A diuretic and renal diagnostic aid related to sorbitol. It has little significant energy value as it is largely eliminated from the body before any metabolism can take place. It can be used to treat oliguria associated with kidney failure or other manifestations of inadequate renal function and has been used for determination of glomerular filtration rate. Mannitol is also commonly used as a research tool in cell biological studies, usually to control osmolarity.
An organism whose body contains cell populations of different genotypes as a result of the TRANSPLANTATION of donor cells after sufficient ionizing radiation to destroy the mature recipient's cells which would otherwise reject the donor cells.
Preparative treatment of transplant recipient with various conditioning regimens including radiation, immune sera, chemotherapy, and/or immunosuppressive agents, prior to transplantation. Transplantation conditioning is very common before bone marrow transplantation.
Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
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...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
