Acute kidney injury (AKI) is major kidney disease featured by a rapid decline of renal function. Pathologically, AKI is characterized by tubular epithelial cell injury and death. Besides its acute con...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) can lead to chronic kidney disease (CKD) if injury is severe and/or repair is incomplete. However, the pathogenesis of CKD following renal ischemic injury is not fully unders...
Cardiorenal crosstalk has gained growing scientific curiosity recently. Clinical observations have approved that heart and kidney performances are intimately interrelated; acute or chronic dysfunction...
Chronic heart failure (HF) disrupts normal kidney function and leads to cardiorenal syndrome that further promotes HF progression. To identify potential participants in HF-related injury, we analyzed ...
Cardiorenal syndromes (CRS) include a scenario of clinical interactions characterized by the heart and kidney dysfunction. The crosstalk between cardiac and renal systems is clearly evidenced but not ...
The objective of this study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of intrarenal administration of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) in improving renal function as measure by GFR and ...
Erythropoietin (EPO) treatment in patients with the severe cardiorenal syndrome increases cardiac performance and decreases progression of renal failure by dampening the main driving force...
The investigators recent study has found that ambient melamine exposure can cause the increase of biomarkers of renal tubular injury in melamine manufacturing workers. Thus, in this year, ...
Ischemic acute tubular necrosis (ATN) is one of the main cause of acute kidney injury (AKI) in intensive care units (ICU). Sepsis and cardio-pulmonary bypass (CPB) are major providers. The...
Interventional study of modulation of immune response in patients with pancreatic tubular adenocarcinoma after resection and gemcitabine treatment. When included, patients are pre-treated ...
A branch of applied ethics that studies the value implications of practices and developments in life sciences, medicine, and health care.
The ongoing, systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of health-related data with the purpose of preventing or controlling disease or injury, or of identifying unusual events of public health importance, followed by the dissemination and use of information for public health action.

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.
