N-octanoyl dopamine treatment exerts renoprotective properties in acute kidney injury but not in renal allograft recipients
Conclusions NOD treatment reduces renal injury in warm ischaemia, but is not effective in renal transplant in our experimental animal models. The salutary effect of NOD appears to be TPRV1-dependent, not involving large changes in renal perfusion.
ConclusionRenal carcinomas in non-functional grafts are rare entities and most of them are diagnosed fortuitously. Despite the fact that these tumors are small, low grade and with a good prognosis, regular monitoring of non-functional grafts should be performed with at least an annual ultrasonography.

Authors: Thorsteinsdottir H, Salvador CL, Mjøen G, Lie A, Sugulle M, Tøndel C, Brun A, Almaas R, Bjerre A Abstract Growth differentiation factor 15 (GDF-15) is strongly associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD). The aim of our study was to evaluate plasma and urinary levels of GDF-15 after pediatric renal transplantation (Rtx) and in children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its associations to cardiovascular risk factors. In this cross-sectional study, GDF-15 was measured in plasma and urine from 53 children with a renal transplant and 83 children with CKD and related to cardiovascular risk f...
Fat accumulation in skeletal muscle was recently established as a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the general population, but its relevance for patients with kidney failure is unknown. Here we examined the potential association between muscle radiation attenuation (MRA), a non-invasive indicator of fat deposits in muscle, and cardiovascular events in patients with kidney failure treated with peritoneal dialysis (PD) and investigated dynamic changes and determinants of MRA in this population. We retrospectively assessed MRA on computed tomography images collected yearly in 101 incident patients with ki...
CONCLUSIONS A delayed and extended HMP can recover the graft hemodynamic function, maintain some metabolic activity, and stabilize the accumulated ischemic damage due to a preliminary SCS. PMID: 32094320 [PubMed - in process]
