New Alternative Treatments For Kidney Problems

There’s something you should know about chronic kidney disease. Most doctors will tell you there is no alternative treatments for kidney problems besides costly dialysis or a transplant to deal with impaired renal function. What Is Kidney Failure? Kidney dialysis is a treatment that uses a special machine to filter harmful wastes, salt and excess from your blood. But there is another option. It’s called stem cell biotherapy, and it offers new hope to those with this life-threatening disease. You may think your kidneys are just fine and you have nothing to worry about. But consider this… What Causes Kidney Failure? High blood pressure is the most common cause of kidney failure. And that’s not the only risk factor for chronic kidney disease. There’s also high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and turning 65 years old. Who’s Affected by Chronic Kidney Disease? In fact, chronic kidney disease affects one in seven adult Americans.1 Conventional advice says the only options are dialysis or a transplant. But I help my patients avoid and treat kidney disease in a much more natural fashion. How Does Dialysis Work? Dialysis requires you to be hooked up to a machine three times a week for four hours per session. The annual cost for this treatment is about $80,000 per patient and rising. The total amount of private and public funds spent on the procedure is staggering. A University of Virginia study found that Medicare alone spends $50 billio...

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy for heart failure: a meta-analysis. Herz. 2018 Oct 19;: Authors: Fu H, Chen Q Abstract BACKGROUND: Mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) treatment has emerged as an important adjunct therapy for heart failure. However, the use of MSC to treat heart failure has not been well established. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to evaluate the efficacy of MSC treatment for heart failure. METHODS: PubMed, Embase, and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials were searched. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the influence of MSC treatment on ...

The public health burden of alcohol use disorder is experienced globally, yet the heterogeneous clinical presentation of this disorder and the spectrum of pathophysiology associated with its various disease stages have made it difficult —despite auspicious animal models—to bring forth efficacious pharmacotherapies that improve clinical outcome. This particularly complex field of therapeutic drug development calls for better strategies to expand drug targets and to optimize their use.

In this study, we further explored the mechanism underlying CD133-mediated cisplatin resistance in glioblastoma stem cells. We sorted human glioblastoma T98G and U87MG cells into CD133+ and CD133− pools and measured apoptosis and CD133 expression levels in response to cisplatin treatment. We predicted candidate microRNAs that might target CD133 and assessed their levels in cisplatin-treated CD133+ cells. Finally, we overexpressed miR-29a in CD133+ cells and tested its effects in cisplatin-mediated apoptosis and survival of CD133+ tumor bearing mice receiving cisplatin treatment. We found that CD133+ glioblastoma stem...

In conclusion, molecular alterations in ependymoma involve miRNAs. In our report, we review the level of evidence for the biomarker candidacy of identified miRNAs. Confirmatory studies are necessary to establish robust biomarkers for the clinical management of ependymoma. Proteins regulated by differentially expressed miRNAs are additional candidate biomarkers and may offer targets for novel therapeutic interventions.

AbstractAlzheimer ’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive neuronal loss, caused by misfolding and accumulation of tau and Amyloid β-42. Cellular mechanisms involving phosphatases, chaperones, ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS) and aggresomes solubilize or remove these toxic aggr egates. Chaperones such as Hsp70 and Hsp90 functions in folding tau to its native form or in the downstream degrade and eliminated tau from the cell. Chaperones are involved in lysosomal degradation of tau by a process called chaperone mediated autophagy (CMA). In pathological conditions, chaperones fa...

Authors: Heras Benito M, Fernández-Reyes Luis MJ Abstract Chronic kidney disease is common in people>65years of age. The development and improvement of dialysis techniques has allowed its generalisation to the entire population, when there is a situation of terminal nephropathy, without limit of use due to chronological age. Decision making in elderly patients with advanced chronic kidney disease is complex: in addition to renal parameters, both comorbidity and the presence of geriatric syndromes must be considered. This review addresses the management of information, the decision making of different trea...

We report a 17 year old sportsman presenting with acute encephalitic Parkinsonism concurrent with acute hepatitis. Serology was positive for Hepatitis E virus (HEV) and HEV RNA was confirmed. Patient improved completely with symptomatic treatment. We suggest offering diagnostic testing for Hepatitis E virus in patients of neurological disorders with concurrent liver impairment.
