Suicidal erythrocyte death or eryptosis contributes to or even accounts for anemia in a wide variety of clinical conditions, such as iron deficiency, dehydration, hyperphosphatemia, vitamin D excess, chronic kidney disease (CKD), hemolytic-uremic syndrome, diabetes, hepatic failure, malignancy, arteriitis, sepsis, fever, malaria, sickle-cell disease, beta-thalassemia, Hb-C and G6PD-deficiency, Wilsons disease, as well as advanced age. Moreover, eryptosis is triggered by a myriad of xenobiotics and endogenous substances including cytotoxic drugs and uremic toxins. Eryptosis is characterized by cell membrane scrambling with ...

To the Editor On behalf of my coauthors, I write to report an omission of data from 1 trial reported in our article, “Association of Intensive Blood Pressure Control and Kidney Disease Progression in Nondiabetic Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis,” that was published online first on March 13, 2017, and in the June 2017 issue ofJAMA Internal Medicine. We are grateful to the reader who pointed out this omission and for the opportunity to correct the article. Our meta-analysis included data from 9 trials comprising 8127 patients that compared major renal outcomes in nondiab...

In the article titled “Association of Intensive Blood Pressure Control and Kidney Disease Progression in Nondiabetic Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis,” an omission of data from 1 trial reported in the article occurred and has resulted in changes to the Abstract, text, Table 1, Table 2, and the Figure of the main article, and to eFigure 1, eFigure 4, and eTable 1 in the online-only Supplement. A letter of explanation describes how this error occurred. The article was corrected online.

AbstractSlowing down the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its adverse health outcomes requires the patient ’s self-management and attention to treatment recommendations. Information technology (IT)–based interventions are increasingly being used to support self-management in patients with chronic diseases such as CKD. We conducted a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to assess t he features and effects of IT-based interventions on self-management outcomes of CKD patients. A comprehensive search was conducted in Medline, Scopus, and the Cochrane Library to identify relevant p...

In this study, researchers put some numbers to the correlation, and improve on previous attempts to rule out wealth and other effects as significant contributing causes. A study finds that a Chinese policy is unintentionally causing people in northern China to live 3.1 years less than people in the south, due to air pollution concentrations that are 46 percent higher. These findings imply that every additional 10 micrograms per cubic meter of particulate matter pollution reduces life expectancy by 0.6 years. The elevated mortality is entirely due to an increase in cardiorespiratory deaths, indicating that air poll...

In this study, we examined the relationship between the urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) and biomarkers of endothelial function in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). MATERIAL AND METHODS The cross-sectional associations of renal dysfunction and UACR with procoagulant and inflammatory factors were evaluated for 151 consecutive CKD (stage 3-5) patients. Subjects were grouped by UACR (≤300 mg/g or>300 mg/g) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) (30≤ eGFR

Cardiovascular disease is the major cause of death in patients with chronic kidney disease, even after renal transplantation. Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) provides an indicator of arterial stiffness, whereas fibroblast growth factor-21 (FGF-21) levels may provide a biomarker for atherosclerotic disease. We investigated the association between CAVI and FGF-21 and their relationships to carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and other cardiovascular risk factors.

CONCLUSIONS: In patients with CKD, the available evidence, largely from observational studies, suggests significantly fewer events with DES vs BMS with even a lower ST rate with 2nd-generation DES. These findings should be tested in large, randomized trials. PMID: 28915510 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
