Immunoglobulin (Ig)A nephropathy is the most common cause of primary glomerulonephritis worldwide. While IgA nephropathy has been associated with a variety of other diseases, pulmonary complications are extremely rare. A 58-year-old man presented with a 2-week history of fever and exertional dyspnoea. A chest imaging revealed bilateral consolidation predominantly in upper lungs. Laboratory findings showed elevated serum creatinine with proteinuria and haematuria. Flexible bronchoscopy revealed diffuse alveo...
Glutathione (γ-glutamylcysteinylglycine) is a small tripeptide found at millimolar concentrations in nearly all eukaryotes as well as many prokaryotic cells. Glutathione synthesis is restricted to the cytosol in animals and fungi and to the cytosol and plastids in plants. Nonetheless, glutathione is found in virtually all subcellular compartments. This implies that transporters must exist, which facilitate glutathione transport into and out of the various subcellular compartments. Glutathione may also be e...
Glutathione is a low molecular weight thiol that is important for maintaining intracellular redox homeostasis. Some bacteria are able to import exogenous glutathione as a nutritional source and to counter oxidative stress. In cytosolic pathogens Burkholderia pseudomallei and Listeria monocytogenes, host glutathione regulates bacterial virulence. In B. pseudomallei, glutathione activates the membrane-bound histidine kinase sensor VirA that leads to activation of the Type VI Secretion System. In L. monocytoge...
Diabetic nephropathy is a common complication of diabetes. This study explored the renal protective effect and possible mechanism of gliquidone in mice with diabetic nephropathy.
To explore novel genetic loci for diabetic nephropathy, we performed genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for diabetic nephropathy in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes. We analyzed the association of 5,768,242 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes, 2,380 nephropathy cases and 5,234 controls. We further performed GWAS for diabetic nephropathy using independent Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes, 429 cases and 358 controls and the results of these two GWAS...
Endothelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EndMT) of glomerular endothelial cells (GEnCs) can induce albuminuria in diabetic nephropathy. Melatonin attenuates diabetic nephropathy, but its role and mechanism in EndMT of GEnCs in diabetic nephropathy remain unknown.
It is unknown whether renal pathology lesions in immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) correlate with renal outcomes over decades of follow-up.
Enteric oxalate nephropathy is caused by hyperoxaluria. Factors which contribute to excessive oxalate absorption are an abundance of free fatty acids in the intestine due to malabsorption, changes in the microbiome, and bowel inflammation. We present two cases that illustrate different pathophysiological aspects of this disease. The first patient was a 70-year-old male who developed oxalate nephropathy through malabsorption caused by chronic pancreatitis. It is plausible that the oxalate nephropathy was set...
Managing nephropathy associated with diabetes mellitus warrant investigation of relevant biomarkers in predicting this condition. Adiponectin (ADP) may hold promise as a biomarker for diabetic nephropathy (DN). In this study, we examine associations of ADP with DN by meta-analyzing relevant literature. We also examined the predictive potential of ADP and estimate progression of DN.
This study assessed if serum carnosinase (CNDP1) activity and concentration in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) with diabetic nephropathy (DN) differs from those without nephropathy. In a cross-sectional design 127 patients with T2D with DN ((CTG) homozygous patients n = 45) and 145 patients with T2D without nephropathy ((CTG) homozygous patients n = 47) were recruited. Univariate and multivariate regression analyses were performed to predict factors relevant for serum CNDP1 concentratio...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease affecting young age adults especially females. Infection with Epstein Barr virus (EBV) represents a common pathogen associated with SLE activity. This study investigates the occurrence of EBV in SLE patients with renal complications by serological markers and molecular detection of EBV genome in renal biopsies and examine the association of EBV with the pathological grades in renal diseases. The study included nineteen patients with systemic lupus ...
What is the central question of this study? Up-regulation of lncRNA XIST in injured podocytes and membranous nephropathy has been noted, but its implication in membranous nephropathy pathogenesis has not been elucidated in detail. What is the main finding and its importance? We demonstrated that XIST was up-regulated in kidney tissue of membranous nephropathy and in injured podocytes. Down-regulation of XIST inhibited podocytes apoptosis. XIST negatively regulated miR-217, and miR-217 controlled TLR4. XIST ...
Several miRNAs including miR-21 have emerged as important regulators in the development of diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, the molecular mechanism of miR-21 underlying DN pathogenesis remains to be further discussed.
Remote ischemic preconditioning (RIPC) exerts protection in remote organs. The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential of RIPC to prevent contrast induced nephropathy. One hundred and twenty four patients were randomized to elective percutaneous coronary intervention with or without RIPC. RIPC was performed using three cycles of 5-min inflation to 200 mmHg of a standard upper arm blood pressure cuff. The time between the last inflation cycle and the coronary intervention was less than 2 h. ...
Hemorheologic alterations have been suggested to play a role in the pathogenesis of diabetic microvascular complications. We measured various hemorheologic parameters and assessed their possible role as a diagnostic tool for diabetic nephropathy (DN).
Our previous studies demonstrated that a novel long non-coding RNA, CYP4B1-PS1-001, was significantly downregulated in early diabetic nephropathy in vivo and in vitro, and CYP4B1-PS1-001 overexpression could inhibit the proliferation and fibrosis of mouse mesangial cells (MMCs). However, the underlying mechanism of the CYP4B1-PS1-001-mediated regulation of proliferation and fibrosis in diabetic nephropathy remains undetermined.
Because the association between sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P)/apolipoprotein M (ApoM) and chronic kidney diseases has not been established, we investigated the involvement of S1P/ApoM in the phenotypes of IgA nephropathy in hyper-IgA (HIGA) mice. The overexpression of ApoM in adenoviral gene transfer ameliorated the phenotypes of IgA nephropathy in HIGA mice, whereas the knockdown of ApoM with siRNA caused deterioration. When ApoM-overexpressing HIGA mice were treated with VPC23019, an antagonist against S1...
The role of serum uric acid (SUA) level in the progression of Immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) remains controversial.
Loss of brain glutathione has been associated with cognitive decline and neuronal death during aging and neurodegenerative diseases. However, whether decreased glutathione precedes or follows neuronal dysfunction has not been unambiguously elucidated. Previous attempts to address this issue were approached by fully eliminating glutathione, a strategy causing abrupt lethality or premature neuronal death that led to multiple interpretations. To overcome this drawback, here we aimed to moderately decrease glut...
Diabetes nephropathy is one of the most common causes of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) worldwide. The data are clear that kidney transplantation is superior to remaining on dialysis for patients with diabetes. However, there have been no reports on ABO-incompatible kidney transplantation in patients with ESKD due to diabetes nephropathy.
Diabetic nephropathy is the commonly developed complication of vasculature in type 2 diabetic patients. Chronic hyperglycemia leads to nephropathy in diabetics because of the formation of excessive reactive oxygen species and advanced glycation end products which is reflected in the form of glomerulosclerosis, tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis. As per the various reports reduction in SIRT1 expression in kidney tissue is key factor in the development of nephropathy in diabetes because its reduction i...
Aspartame (ASP) has been used as an alternative to sucrose for diabetics and obese people worldwide. Co-administration of L-carnitine (LC) with ASP has a protective effect against the liver and kidney toxicity induced of ASP. The goal of the investigation was to assess the enhancement of LC effect on the cardiac toxicity caused of ASP. The rats were divided into 6 groups: control with saline, LC (10 mg/kg), ASP (75 mg/kg), ASP (150 mg/kg), LC with 75 mg/kg of ASP, and LC with 150 mg/kg ASP. The antioxidants...
Diabetic nephropathy (DN), as the most common and serious diabetic microvascular complication, has become the first cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in many countries and regions. However, the pathogenesis of renal fibrosis during the development of DN remains unknown.
The present network meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) was to explore the efficacy and safety of different pharmacologic interventions in IgA nephropathy with proteinuria more than 0.75 g/d.
- As the potential role of the complement system in diabetic nephropathy (DN) is increasingly reported, this study aimed to investigate C1q and C3c deposition as seen on renal histopathology, as well as its association with clinical and pathological parameters, in DN patients.
