Studies using a single measurement of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) suggest that elevated FGF-23 levels are associated with increased risk for requirement for kidney replacement therapy (KRT) in patients with chronic kidney disease. However, the data do not account for changes in FGF-23 levels as kidney disease progresses.
the incidence of obesity has increased among children, and obesity has been considered an independent risk factor for chronic kidney disease. We aimed to determine the degree of kidney function impairment by evaluating urine neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) levels.
Optimal blood pressure (BP) management in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) slows progression to end-stage renal disease. Studies often base progression risk on a single baseline BP measurement, which may underestimate risk.
The duration of sleep might be a risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated the relationship between sleep duration and incident CKD.
Leptospirosis is a globally important, fatal disease of humans, and over 160 species of animals are associated with more than 250 bacterial serovars in 64 species, but its ecology varies regionally and has changed over time with expansion of human development on previously agricultural and wild land. Sporadic human cases and clusters of canine leptospirosis, primarily attributable to serogroup Pomona, have been detected in northern California. Small mesocarnivores such as raccoons and skunks frequent perid...
Albuminuria is a pathological condition wherein the human serum albumin (HSA) protein is present in abnormally excess amounts in the urine. A simple and sensitive graphene oxide-mediated fluorescence quenching aptasensor is developed to quantify albumin in urine samples and HSA in serum samples. The aptamer-bound HSA used in this aptasensor has hairpin structures, which are characteristic of the aptamer binding site. The limit of detection of the developed platform is 0.05 μg·mL and the detection range i...
Despite the abundance of data documenting the consequences of poor sleep quality on blood pressure (BP), no previous study to our knowledge has addressed the impact of sleep improvement on resistant hypertension among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Although reduced red blood cell (RBC) lifespan has been reported to be a contributory factor to anemia in patients with end-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD), there are limited data regarding RBC lifespan in early-stage CKD. Serum erythropoietin (EPO) is considered a primary causative factor of renal anemia. The aims of this study were to compare the RBC lifespan, serum EPO levels, and other renal anemia indicators across CKD-stage groups of patients and to analyze the impacts of etiological factors on ren...
Sickle cell disease (SCD) is associated with progressive multi-organ failure especially, the brain and kidney and leads to high morbidity and mortality rate. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of renal abnormalities among children with SCD. This cross-sectional study recruited 212 sickling positive patients comprising of 96 Hb AS, 48 Hb SC, and 68 Hb SS phenotypes from the Pediatric Unit of Wassa Akropong Government Hospital, Wassa Akropong, Ghana. Early morning urine and venous blood sam...
In patients with acute kidney injury progressively converting into chronic kidney disease (CKD), proteinuria and high blood pressure predict progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Although, Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) regulates blood pressure and kidney disease through both direct and indirect mechanisms. RAAS blockers that act at the level of angiotensin or lower in the cascade can cause compensatory increases in the plasma renin and angiotensin II level. Here, in this review articl...
Acute kidney injury (AKI) in pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) children may be associated with long-term chronic kidney disease or hypertension.
Antihypertensive treatment and risk of cardiovascular mortality in patients with chronic kidney disease diagnosed based on the presence of proteinuria and renal function: A large longitudinal study in Japan.
Several recent clinical trials and meta-analyses have shown that lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, current evidence that describes general demographics in blood pressure and mortality with chronic kidney disease is sparse in Japan. Using a population-based longitudinal cohort that received annual health checkups in Japan in 2008, hypertensive status, self-reported use of antihypertensive drugs, and prognosis were examined through 2012. Chronic kidney disease was de...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, with limited strategies for prevention and treatment. Coffee is a complex mixture of chemicals, and consumption has been associated with mostly beneficial health outcomes. This work aimed to determine the impact of coffee consumption on kidney function.
Serum uric acid (SUA) has been associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in observational studies; however, data in women without hypertension and diabetes are sparse.
Increased intrarenal vascular resistance is suggested to accompany chronic kidney diseases (CKD), which is known to be closely associated with hypertension. However, there are few studies that have examined the relationship between blood pressure and intrarenal vascular resistance. Renal color Doppler ultrasonography is one method that can non-invasively evaluate intrarenal vascular resistance. In this study, we comprehensively studied the correlations between ultrasonic parameters and blood pressure indice...
The goal of this study was to characterize how natural routes of infection affect the kinetics of pathogenic Leptospira dissemination to blood and kidney. C3H/HeJ mice were sublethally infected with L. interrogans serovar Copenhageni FioCruz L1-130 (Leptospira) through exposure of a dermis wound and through oral and nasal mucosa, in comparison to uninfected mice and to mice infected via standard intraperitoneal inoculation. In striking contrast to oral mucosa inoculation, transdermal and nasal mucosa infect...
The dipstick urinalysis for proteinuria has been used for chronic kidney disease (CKD) screening at community-based health checkups; however, it has major drawbacks in that the result is only semi-quantitative and is influenced by urine concentration.
In the past, hydrogen sulfide (HS) was considered as a poisonous gas or waste of the body. Later, researchers found that HS-producing enzymes exist in mammals. Moreover, their findings indicated that endogenous HS was associated with the occurrence of many diseases. Therefore, endogenous HS is able to participate in the regulation of physiological and pathological functions of the body as a gas signaling molecule. In this review, we summarize the regulation mechanism of endogenous HS on the body, such as pr...
Presepsin, a glycoprotein produced during bacterial phagocytosis, is used as a sepsis marker for bacterial infections. However, presepsin levels are affected by renal function, and the evaluation criteria according to kidney function or in chronic kidney diseases remain controversial. Furthermore, presepsin may be increased by sample stirring, but no studies have evaluated this effect.In this study, we excluded the effect of stirring by standardizing the blood collection conditions, analyzed the influence o...
As early detection and advances in the treatment for renal cell carcinoma continue to lead to excellent oncologic outcomes, the preservation of renal function in kidney cancer patients has emerged as an increasingly important clinical objective. Given that diabetes, hypertension, obesity, cigarette smoking, and aging are independent risk factors for renal cell carcinoma, the corresponding non-neoplastic kidney diseases frequently are present, but often undiagnosed. In addition, the subsequent clinical manag...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the result of a reduced number of nephrons, in which adipose tissue and its metabolites play a significant role. Fibroblast growth factors, FGF19 and FGF21, are involved in lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. The aim of the study was to examine the concentrations of FGF19 and FGF21 in patients with CKD, as well as the correlation between FGF19 and FGF21 and selected biochemical parameters.
The increase in the incidence of chronic kidney diseases that progress to end-stage renal disease has become a significant health problem worldwide. While dialysis can maintain and prolong survival, the only definitive treatment that can restore renal function is transplantation. Unfortunately, many of these patients die waiting for transplantable kidneys due to the severe shortage of donor organs. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine approaches have been applied in recent years to develop viable th...
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) bear a substantial burden of comorbidities leading to the prescription of multiple drugs and a risk of polypharmacy. However, data on medication use in this population are scarce.
Myeloperoxidase (MPO) catalyzes the formation of reactive nitrogen species and levels are elevated in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Although increased oxidative stress and inflammation are associated with progression of CKD and cardiovascular disease (CVD), relationships between MPO concentration, CKD progression, CVD, and death remain unclear.
Blood samples are the most common and important biological samples found at crime scenes, and distinguishing peripheral blood and menstrual blood samples is crucial for solving criminal cases. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are important molecules with strong tissue specificity that can be used in forensic fields to identify the tissue properties of body fluid samples. In this study, the relative expression levels of four different miRNAs (miR-451, miR-205, miR-214 and miR-203) were analysed by real-time PCR, with 200 ...
