Impact of serum and dialysates obtained from chronic hemodialysis patients maintained on high cut ‐off membranes on inflammation profile in human THP‐1 monocytes

In this study, we tested the influence of serum and dialysates obtained from patients maintained on High cut‐off or High flux membranes on the inflammation profile of THP‐1 monocytes.Methods THP‐1 monocytes were treated with serum or dialysates obtained from patients maintained on High cut‐off and High flux membranes within a randomized crossover pilot trial. Serum‐treated cells were subjected to qPCR analyses with TaqMan probes specific for IL6, TNFa, osteopontin and osteocalcin, and transcriptional screening with Inflammatory Array. Apoptosis assay was performed flow cytometrically with 7‐AAD and Annexin V staining.Findings Treatment of the cells with High cut‐off serum led to significant reduction of TNFa and IL‐6 expression as well as inflammation‐related osteopontin and osteocalcin as compared to High flux membrane treatment. As a complementary finding, treatment with High cut‐off dialysates induced a pro‐apoptotic phenotype in the cells as demonstrated by a significantly increased percentage of 7‐AAD and Annexin V positivity. Global screening of serum‐treated cells revealed noticeably decreased inflammation profile under High cut‐off serum as compared to High flux treatment.Discussion Taken together, these data demonstrate that High cut‐off ‐membranes eliminate a spectrum of mediators from serum into the dialysate that possess proinflammatory properties and may impair cellular viability.

AbstractIn a rapidly expanding population of patients with chronic kidney disease, including 2 million people requiring renal replacement therapy, cardiovascular mortality is 15 times greater than the general population. In addition to traditional cardiovascular risk factors, more poorly defined risks related to uraemia and it ’s treatments appear to contribute to this exaggerated risk. In this context, the microcirculation may play an important early role in cardiovascular disease associated with chronic kidney disease. Experimentally the uraemic environment and dialysis have been linked to multiple pathways causing...

This study aimed to examine the association between the mode of dialysis or the values of sclerostin or DKK1 and carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) in ESRD patients. There were 122 HD and 72 PD patients enrolled in this study. By a validated tonometry system, cfPWV was measured and then segregated patients into values of >10 m/s as the high central arterial stiffness (AS) group and values ≤ 10 m/s as the control group. Serum levels of sclerostin and DKK1 were measured using a commercial enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit. Possible risk factors for the development of AS were analyzed by logistic regres...

Authors: Supriyadi R, Rakhima F, Gondodiputro RS, Darmawan G Abstract BACKGROUND: the prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and dialysis patients is increasing every year in Indonesia. The impact of CKD and dialysis on patient quality of life (QOL) has been recognized as an important outcome measure in the management of CKD. The Kidney Disease Quality of Life (KDQOL-36) has been validated and is widely used as a measure of QOL for CKD and dialysis patients in many countries, but not in Indonesia. The aim of this study is to determine the reliabity and validity of the Indonesian version of KDQOL-36 on hemodialy...

AbstractPurposeIn chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, dysbiosis is associated with inflammation and cardiovascular risk, so many nutritional strategies are being studied to reduce these complications. Resistant starch (RS) can be considered a prebiotic that promotes many benefits, including modulation of gut microbiota which is linked to immune-modulatory effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of RS supplementation on proinflammatory cytokines in CKD patients on hemodialysis (HD).MethodsA double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial was conducted with sixteen HD patients (55.3  ±&...

Omega ‐3 (n‐3) fatty acids have beneficial cardiovascular effects, perhaps also in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We measured fatty acids (HPLC‐MS lipidomics) in all components of the circulating blood. Our data demonstrate significant changes in fatty acid signatures between healthy persons and CKD patients. However, dialysis treatment per se does not appear to be responsible for a lower omega‐3 index in CKD patients. AbstractOmega ‐3 (n‐3) fatty acids have beneficial cardiovascular effects, perhaps also in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. A low omega‐3 index is an independent cardiovascular ri...

All patients were dialysis-dependent, of which 26 received CABG and 86 underwent PCI. The primary endpoint was all-cause mortality. Secondary endpoints were major adverse cardiovascular even...

Abstract In 2015, Congress passed the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA), a policy intended to transition Medicare away from pure fee-for-service care to value-based care. MACRA does this by evaluating the cost and quality of providers, resulting in financial bonuses and penalties in Medicare reimbursement. MACRA offers two tracks for participation, the Merit-based Incentive Payment System and the Advanced Alternative Payment Models. Although the payment rules are different for each of the tracks, common to both is an emphasis on holding providers accountable for high-quality, cost-efficient care...
