Proteinuria in Pre and Post Transplant

2014-08-27 03:14:58 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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 kidney transplantation. This study will look at serum specimens pre and post transplant, as well as kidney transplant specimens pre and post reperfusion to identify where the defects has occured that results in recurrence of proteinuria in a given kidney transplant.

Description

This study will retrospectively review patient's medical records for protein in the urine, blood creatinine and kidney biopsy results. Also character of the fluid used to flush the kidney before transplant will be analyzed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The presence of proteins in the urine, an indicator of KIDNEY DISEASES.

A condition in which total serum protein level is below the normal range. Hypoproteinemia can be caused by protein malabsorption in the gastrointestinal tract, EDEMA, or PROTEINURIA.

Pathological processes of the KIDNEY without inflammatory or neoplastic components. Nephrosis may be a primary disorder or secondary complication of other diseases. It is characterized by the NEPHROTIC SYNDROME indicating the presence of PROTEINURIA and HYPOALBUMINEMIA with accompanying EDEMA.

Inflammation of the renal glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) that can be classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, complement activation, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to HEMATURIA; PROTEINURIA; HYPERTENSION; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.

A kidney disease with no or minimal histological glomerular changes on light microscopy and with no immune deposits. It is characterized by lipid accumulation in the epithelial cells of KIDNEY TUBULES and in the URINE. Patients usually show NEPHROTIC SYNDROME indicating the presence of PROTEINURIA with accompanying EDEMA.
