In this pilot study, investigators plan to enroll liver transplant candidates and a "Live Donor Champion" for an abridged two- or three-month program that provides education and advocacy t...
Live donor kidney transplantation (LDKT) offers the most optimal survival and quality of life benefit for those with late-stage chronic kidney disease. However, minorities, especially blac...
The goal of this research study is to establish chimerism and avoid graft-versus-host disease in patients with kidney failure allowing a reduction or cessation of immune-suppressive therap...
This is a clinical trial comparing the immunosuppressive treatment determined according to two biomarkers, donor-specific IFN-γ ELISPOT and Mismatch of HLA between donor and recipient, in...
The mortality rate of treated patients with end stage renal disease(ESRD)is 22 deaths patient-years at risk in 2006. Incident patients with ESRD are most vulnerable within the first 90 day...
Advances in dialysis medicine have enabled end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients to live longer. ESRD patients and their family members experience the illness in everyday life, and patients are requ...
People needing kidney transplants in New Zealand can receive organs from deceased donors or from a living kidney donor. This project explored issues surrounding donor recruitment, examining the lived ...
Kidneys from donors affected by autosomal-dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) are, in general, considered unsuitable for transplantation. However, some authors report cases of patients who rece...
Lithium is the treatment of choice for patients suffering from bipolar disorder (BD) but prolonged use induces renal dysfunction in at least 20% of patient. Intensive monitoring of kidney functioning ...
Chronic renal failure, especially end-stage renal disease is a serious health problem associated with high mortality rate. Uremic syndrome leads to increased oxidative stress, inflammation and dyslipi...
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
The compulsory portion of Medicare that is known as the Hospital Insurance Program. All persons 65 years and older who are entitled to benefits under the Old Age, Survivors, Disability and Health Insurance Program or railroad retirement, persons under the age of 65 who have been eligible for disability for more than two years, and insured workers (and their dependents) requiring renal dialysis or kidney transplantation are automatically enrolled in Medicare Part A.
KIDNEY injuries associated with diabetes mellitus and affecting KIDNEY GLOMERULUS; ARTERIOLES; KIDNEY TUBULES; and the interstitium. Clinical signs include persistent PROTEINURIA, from microalbuminuria progressing to ALBUMINURIA of greater than 300 mg/24 h, leading to reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and END-STAGE RENAL DISEASE.
