Urine osmolality indicates the ability of the kidney to concentrate the urine and reflects the antidiuretic action of vasopressin. However, results about the association between urine osmolality and adverse renal outcomes in chronic kidney disease (CKD) are conflicting. We investigated the association between urine osmolality and adverse renal outcomes in a nationwide prospective CKD cohort.
Cell-free deoxyribonucleic acid DNA (cf-DNA) in urine is promising due to the advantage of urine as an easily obtained and non-invasive sample source over tissue and blood. In clinical practice, it is important to identify non-invasive biomarkers of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in monitoring and surveillance of disease progression. Information is limited, however, regarding the relationship between urine and plasma cf-DNA and the renal outcome in CKD patients.
The assessment of sodium intake is difficult due to low accuracy of dietary records and to the inconvenience of 24-h urine collections. Therefore, equations based on spot urine samples have been proposed to estimate sodium intake. In this study, we aimed to develop and to validate equations to estimate 24-h urinary sodium excretion (24hUNa) from several urine samples in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.
HIV-infected (HIV+) persons are at increased risk of chronic kidney disease, but serum creatinine does not detect early losses in kidney function. We hypothesized that urine biomarkers of kidney damage would be associated with subsequent changes in kidney function in a contemporary cohort of HIV+ and HIV-uninfected (HIV-) men.
This study was to characterize the association of cumulative exposure to increased high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) with chronic kidney diseases (CKD).
Exposures to toxic elements or deficiencies of essential elements during pregnancy may be associated to various birth complications or even diseases in early life. The aim of this paper was to assess the concentrations of selected toxic (As, Cd, Cr, Hg, Ni, Pb) and essential trace elements (Co, Cu, Mn, Se and Zn) in blood and urine samples of delivering women at different periods of gestation and cord blood, as well as to evaluate the placental permeability for these elements. A total of 53 women participat...
Arterial hypertension (HT) affects hundreds millions of people suffering from chronic kidney disease: it could be a cause or a consequence. HT can aggravate their prognosis and then lead to a very high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. HT must be systematically screened and optimally taken care of. However, general practitioners actually lack unambiguous guidelines regarding patients with kidney diseases. This article underlines the necessity and modalities of a precise diagnosis, and aims to discuss ...
In kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) BK polyomavirus (BKPyV) replication may progress to polyomavirus associated nephropathy (PVAN). In this retrospective study we assessed the chemokine CXCL10 in urine and blood samples consecutively acquired from 85 KTRs who displayed different stages of BKPyV replication and eventually developed PVAN. In parallel to progression towards PVAN, CXCL-10 gradually increased in blood and urine, from baseline (prior to virus replication) to BKPyV DNAuria (median increase in b...
The use of dried blood spot (DBS) and dried urine spot (DUS) samples represents an attractive opportunity for researchers in biomedical metabolomics to collect whole blood and urine samples in the absence of a processing laboratory and so to al-low collection in remote areas or in longitudinal studies away from the clinic. The 12-month stability of the thousands of metabolites present in these biofluids and the applicability of DBS and DUS samples for untargeted metabolomics applica-tions has not previously...
Serum creatinine and urine output continue to be the mainstays of diagnosis of acute kidney injury, though both of these measures have significant limitations, especially in acutely hospitalized patients. Biomarkers in both blood and urine have been studied extensively in the research setting and are on the verge of clinical practice to improve diagnosis of AKI.
To analyze the effectiveness and the safety of Sofosbuvir-based regimens to treat patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection and chronic kidney disease (CKD).
The association of diastolic blood pressure (DBP) with incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the general population is not well examined.
Hyperuricemia may cause acute kidney injury by activating inflammatory, pro-oxidative and vasoconstrictive pathways. In addition, radiocontrast causes an acute uricosuria, potentially leading to crystal formation. We therefore aimed to investigate the effect of urine acidity and urine uric acid level on the development of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) in patients undergoing elective coronary angiography.
Estimates of adherence to antihypertensive treatment in pregnancy are limited; identifying non-adherence could facilitate intervention and optimise blood pressure control. This study aimed to evaluate adherence to antihypertensive treatment amongst pregnant women with chronic hypertension using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry instrumentation. Spot urine samples collected from women who were randomised to labetalol or nifedipine were assessed. Samples from 74 women were includ...
The utilization of antihypertensive drugs plays an important role in blood pressure control among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Limited information was available on how antihypertensive drugs were used among Chinese CKD patients. In the present study, the utilization of antihypertensive drugs among a subgroup of hypertensive participants with a complete record of antihypertensive drug information from the Chinese Cohort Study of Chronic Kidney Disease was analyzed. Among 2213 subjects, 61.7% and 26...
To investigate the prevalence and associations of visual impairment (VI), major eye diseases with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in the US.
Diet modification, especially a decrease in salt intake, might be an important non-pharmacological strategy to improve chronic kidney disease (CKD) prognosis.
Patients treated for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are prone to developing chronic kidney disease (CKD). Current methods used in assessing kidney function suffer inaccuracy in HIV-infected patients. This study aims to identify biomarkers that could complement existing methods of kidney assessment among HIV-infected subjects.
Genomic studies facilitate comprehension of the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of chronic diseases. Such studies require sufficient and good quality DNA isolated from a large number of blood samples. This study attempts to obtain a high-quality genomic DNA isolated from a large number of blood samples using a simple and cheap method.
Cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, stroke and atherosclerosis, are common in patients with chronic kidney disease. Aside from the standard biomarkers, measured to determine cardiovascular risk, new ones have emerged: markers of oxidative stress, apoptosis, inflammation, vascular endothelium dysfunction, atherosclerosis, organ calcification and fibrosis. Unfortunately, their utility for routine clinical application remains to be elucidated. A cau...
Despite decades of study on the contribution of growth hormone (GH) to the development of kidney disease, there remains the question of the relative contribution of elevated levels of GH to kidney damage in humans, particularly in diabetic nephropathy occurring in type 1 patients. In this study, we reviewed several publicly available datasets to examine transcription of twelve genes associated with the GH/IGF1 axis in several types of human and rodent kidney diseases. Our analyses revealed downregulation of...
Numerous candidate biomarkers in urine extracellular vesicles (EVs) have been described for kidney diseases but none are yet in clinical use, possibly due to a lack of proper normalization. Proper normalization corrects for normal biological variation in urine flow rate or concentration, which can vary by over an order of magnitude. Here, we observed inter- and intra-animal variation in urine excretion rates of small EVs (< 200 nm diameter) in healthy rats as a series of six 4-hour fractions. To visualize i...
Autosomal-dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease -(ADTKD) describes tubulointerstitial kidney disease with autosomal-dominant inheritance. In 2017, the term mitochondrial tubulointerstitial kidney disease (MITKD) was introduced for tubulointerstitial kidney disease caused by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations. To date, there are few mutations described in literature causing MITKD, one of them is m.616T>C. A 5-year-old girl presented with chronic renal insufficiency and epilepsia. At the age of 3 years,...
Increased interest in understanding the liver-kidney axis in health and disease during the last decade unveiled multiple recent evidence that suggested a strong association of fatty liver diseases with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Low-grade systemic inflammation is thought to be the major contributing factor to the pathogenesis of CKD associated with fatty liver. However, other contributing factors largely remained unclear, for example, gut microbiota and intestinal barrier integrity. Homeostasis of the gu...
A 60-year-old man presented several times to the emergency department due to confusion and behavioral changes. He was a kidney transplant recipient dependent on hemodialysis due, presumably, to chronic nephropathy of the transplanted kidney, and was not under any immunosuppressive therapy. He was admitted to the hospital ward due to elevation of C reactive protein and severe proteinuria, leukocyturia and erythrocyturia. The alterations found in the spot urine examination were suggestive of nephritic syndrom...
