Published on BioPortfolio: 2014-08-27T03:41:45-0400
The purpose of this research is to study the effects and safety of Sensipar approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in patients with kidney failure who are being treated with di...
The purpose of this study is to compare the proportion of chronic kidney disease (CKD) subjects on dialysis receiving Sensipar® and low dose vitamin D or escalating doses of vitamin D alo...
Hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is common in people with a kidney transplant. Patients with HPT often have high parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels and may have large parathyroid glands in the nec...
Objectives include description of current practices; assessment over time of K/DOQI goals, clinical outcomes, health resource utilization(HRU) and patient reported outcomes (PRO) and the ...
Patients with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) who progress rapidly to end stage renal disease (ESRD) are at highest risk for development of recurrence of proteinuria following ki...
Differences in the epidemiology of post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) between adult and paediatric kidney transplant recipients remain unclear.
Bone disease contributes to relevant morbidity after solid organ transplantation. Vitamin D has a crucial role for bone metabolism. Activation of vitamin D depends on the endocrine function of both, l...
The incidence of acute kidney injury (AKI) and its impact on chronic kidney disease (CKD) following pediatric non-kidney solid organ transplantation is unknown. We aimed to determine the incidence of ...
Epicardial fat (EF) has been related to increased cardiovascular risk in chronic kidney disease patients. Kidney transplantation is associated with weight gain, especially within the first 12 months. ...
Although cytomegalovirus (CMV) specific cell-mediated immunity (CMI) has been suggested as a predictive marker for CMV infection, proper CMI monitoring strategy in CMV-seropositive recipients and opti...
A derivative of sirolimus and an inhibitor of TOR SERINE-THREONINE KINASES. It is used to prevent GRAFT REJECTION in heart and kidney transplant patients by blocking cell proliferation signals. It is also an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT.
A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.
Syndromes which feature DYSKINESIAS as a cardinal manifestation of the disease process. Included in this category are degenerative, hereditary, post-infectious, medication-induced, post-inflammatory, and post-traumatic conditions.
The outer zone of the KIDNEY, beneath the capsule, consisting of KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; KIDNEY TUBULES, DISTAL; and KIDNEY TUBULES, PROXIMAL.
Long convoluted tubules in the nephrons. They collect filtrate from blood passing through the KIDNEY GLOMERULUS and process this filtrate into URINE. Each renal tubule consists of a BOWMAN CAPSULE; PROXIMAL KIDNEY TUBULE; LOOP OF HENLE; DISTAL KIDNEY TUBULE; and KIDNEY COLLECTING DUCT leading to the central cavity of the kidney (KIDNEY PELVIS) that connects to the URETER.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
