To assess and validate equation eGFR in HIV-infected subjects and -uninfected Thai patients
With significant reductions in mortality and risk of progression to AIDS with antiretroviral therapy (ART), complications of long-standing HIV infection and treatment, including renal disease, have become increasingly important. Aging, concomitant metabolic diseases, and use of potentially nephrotoxic ART lead to higher risk for renal disease in HIV-infected persons.WHO encourage TDF as first line ARV regimen. The data on TDF related renal toxicity in Asian population is limited.
For this cohort, we plan to look at these topics:
1. proximal tubular dysfunction between TDF and non-TDF user
2. incidence and predictor of TDF related renal toxicity
3. TDF plasma concentrations
4. Pharmacokinetic of TDF when used with boosted DRV, boosted ATV, and boosted LPV in Thai population
5. Bone density and vitamin D in patients with and without hypophosphatemia.
6. Pharmacogenomic of TDF in Thai population

The purpose of this study is to validate a feasible, safe and reliable iohexol plasma clearance method in routine monitoring of the renal function (GFR) in children. Different parameters ...
This is a Phase I, open-label study evaluating the PK of S-1 components and their metabolites in patients with advanced solid tumors and varying degrees of renal function. Patients will be...
Healthy African American subjects with normal hepatic and renal function will be administered 10mg adefovir dipivoxil in a fasting state. Subjects will have blood and urine collections ove...
This study has an open study design. The GFR will be measured using the renal clearance of inulin (Inutest) in volunteers with different stage of renal disease or without renal disease. A ...
The aim of this study was to investigate renal function decline by measured glomerular filtration rate (mGFR) in patients with FD during enzyme replacement therapy, and to explore the infl...
Several studies have demonstrated that renal impairment not only decreases renal clearance, but also hepatic clearance of medications that are CYP3A4 substrates. We evaluated the influence of renal fu...
Data on renal impairment in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) remains scarce, determination of renal function is not part of routine assessments. We evaluated renal function and blood pressure in a cohort of p...
Renal function can be estimated with formulas, which are inaccurate, or measured with gold standard methods, which are reliable but unpractical. We propose to simplify the plasma clearance of iohexol,...
We aimed to assess the influence of impairment in renal function over the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) accuracy to diagnose perioperative myocardial infarction (MI) after heart valve ...
Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis reduces renal blood flow (RBF) and amplifies stenotic kidney hypoxia. Revascularization with percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) and stenting often...
The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.
Drugs used for their effects on the kidneys' regulation of body fluid composition and volume. The most commonly used are the diuretics. Also included are drugs used for their antidiuretic and uricosuric actions, for their effects on the kidneys' clearance of other drugs, and for diagnosis of renal function.
Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
