Metformin inhibits cyclic AMP generation and activates AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), which inhibits the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator and Mammalian Target of Rapamycin pathways. Together these effects may reduce cyst growth in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD).
The Mayo Clinic Image Classification (MIC) was proposed as a renal prognosis prediction model for autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). MIC is based on the assumption of exponential constant increase in height-adjusted total kidney volume (HtTKV). HtTKV growth rate is calculated by one-time measurement of HtTKV and age. We named it as an age-adjusted HtTKV growth rate (AHTKV-α). AHTKV-α was compared with HtTKV slope measured by at least two HtTKV values.
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the most common genetic renal diseases, which may cause oligoasthenospermia and azoospermia and result in male infertility. This study aimed to analyze the outcomes of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) in male patients with ADPKD-induced infertility.
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is a risk factor for formation of intracranial aneurysms (IAs), though the ideal screening and treatment strategies in this population are unclear.
Mounting clinical experience and evidence from scale observational studies have suggested that polycystic kidney disease (PKD) was not a contraindication for peritoneal dialysis (PD). Recent studies have reported that PD may be associated with a better prognosis in PKD than that of non-PKD patients. To solve the problem, we performed a systematic review and comprehensive meta-analysis to compare the outcomes between PKD and non-PKD patients on PD and the all-cause mortality between patients with PKD on PD a...
Celastrol, a naturally occurring pentacyclic triterpene, has attracted considerable interest because it exhibits potent anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties. However, the effects of celastrol in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) remain uninvestigated.
The aim of the present study was to develop folic acid (FA) conjugates which can deliver the kinase inhibitor dactolisib to the kidneys via folate receptor-mediated uptake in tubular epithelial cells. Dactolisib is a dual inhibitor of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) and is considered an attractive agent for treatment of polycystic kidney disease. The ethylenediamine platinum(II) linker, herein called Lx, was employed to couple dactolisib via coordination chemist...
Professional societies provide conflicting guidelines on aneurysm screening in patients with polycystic kidney disease (PKD), and the rate of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) is poorly understood.
Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is a common, progressive, and heritable type of kidney disease. Although certain imaging modalities are useful for the diagnosis and staging of PKD, they cannot adequately monitor the severity of interstitial inflammation and fibrosis. Therefore, the present study evaluated the urinary level of liver-type fatty acid binding protein (L-FABP) as a marker of interstitial inflammation and fibrosis in PKD.
Identifying the appropriate modality between hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an unresolved issue in polycystic kidney disease (PKD) patients. This study aims to illustrate whether the mortality and survival are different among individuals receiving HD comparing PD.
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the commonest inherited renal disorder; it is defined by progressive renal cyst formation and subsequent renal enlargement that leads to end-stage renal disease. Until recently, only symptomatic treatments for ADPKD existed. However, therapies that address the underlying pathophysiology of ADPKD are now available and accurate identification of the rate of disease progression is essential.
To identify prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal risk factors for dialysis within the first year of life in children with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) as a basis for parental counseling after prenatal and perinatal diagnosis.
A 79-year old patient with an asymptomatic 63-mm infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm, confirmed on computed tomography, was admitted in our unit. The patient had undergone kidney transplantation years before, due to renal failure secondary to polycystic kidney disease. Renal function at admission was normal. The aneurysm had a very short neck, and a standard endovascular aortic repair procedure was not feasible. So, the two renal arteries were embolized with coils and endovascular repair of the aneurysm, c...
In patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), cardiovascular events are the most frequent cause of mortality and morbidity. The aim of our study is to investigate the association between serum fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23) and arterial stiffness (AS) as determined with brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) and atherosclerosis development as determined with carotid artery intima-media thickness (CA- IMT).
To investigate the imaging features of cyst infection in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) patients using computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography (US).
Altered miRNA (miR) expression occurs in various diseases. However, the therapeutic effect of miRNAs in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is unclear. Genome-wide analyses of miRNA expression and DNA methylation status were conducted to identify crucial miRNAs in end-stage ADPKD. miR-192 and -194 levels were down-regulated with hypermethylation at these loci, mainly in the intermediate and late stages, not in the early stage, of cystogenesis, suggesting their potential impact on cyst expan...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is one of the most common, potentially lethal, monogenic diseases and is caused predominantly by mutations in polycystic kidney disease 1 (PKD1) and PKD2, which encode polycystin 1 (PC1) and PC2, respectively. Over the decades-long course of the disease, patients develop large fluid-filled renal cysts that impair kidney function, leading to end-stage renal disease in ~50% of patients. Despite the identification of numerous dysregulated pathways in ADPKD, ...
To investigate the best surgical occasion of laparoscopic cyst decortications (LCDs) in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), in accordance with the renal volume (RV). We retrospectively analyzed 135 (65 male and 70 female) patients with ADPKD who underwent LCD between June 2011 and October 2015. Patients were divided into 4 groups according to the volume of the operated kidney measured from computed tomography scans: group A (28 patients, RV 1500 mL). We studied postope...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) causes the development of renal cysts and leads to a decline in renal function. Limited guidance exists in clinical practice on the use of tolvaptan. A decision algorithm from the European Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) Working Groups of Inherited Kidney Disorders and European Renal Best Practice (WGIKD/ERBP) has been proposed to identify candidates for tolvaptan treatment; however, this algorithm has not been as...
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is associated with early organ damage such as left ventricular hypertrophy and higher cardiovascular risk when compared to essential hypertension (EH). Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a new cardiovascular risk factor, but its role and correlation with left ventricular mass (LVM) in ADPKD is unknown.
Plasma exchange or double filtration plasmapheresis for rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) apheresis or leukocytapheresis for nephritic syndrome are two major apheresis therapies for kidney diseases. In addition to these apheresis therapies, plasma exchange for lupus nephritis or LDL apheresis for refractory focal segmental glomerulonephritis is clinically valuable and established. Although several possibilities of apheresis for kidney diseases were speculated in anima...
Cyst infection is a frequent and serious complication of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) that is often difficult to treat. However, the factors influencing cyst infection are still unknown. Therefore, we investigated clinical factors related to the duration of hospitalization and death due to cyst infection.
Early and severe forms of polycystic kidney disease (PKD) do already manifest during childhood or adolescence. They are characterized by enlarged kidneys and diminished renal function that prenatally may result in Potter's oligohydramnios sequence. Genetically, various defects can mimic this phenotype. Most common are PKHD1 mutations that lead to autosomal recessive PKD (ARPKD). About the same number of children do carry mutations in the dominant autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) genes, P...
Cilia are hair-like structures that function like antennae to detect chemical and mechanical signals in the environment. Recently, phosphoinositides were shown to play an important role in cilia assembly and disassembly. However, the precise molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying this process remain unknown. Here, we report that suppression of apical phosphatidylinositol 4,5- bisphosphate [PtdIns(4,5)P], by overexpressing apically targeted PtdIns(4,5)P phosphatase or by knocking down type I phosphatid...
