Study of Anthurium schlechtendalii Kunth Extract Effects on Nephroprotective or Renal Damage Remission Capacity

This study was aimed at investigating the nephroprotective potential of Anthurium schlechtendalii (A. schlechtendalii) Kunth root consumption as a traditional medicine for kidney disease in Mexico. Materials and Methods: Oral administration of adenine (0.75%) induced chronic kidney disease and solid and aqueous extract from plant root. These were tested at doses of 125 mg kg–1/day and 1.8 mg mL–1/day, respectively in the animal model used in 4 weeks experiment. Growth parameters, liquid consumption, 24 h urine volume, kidney weight, creatinine, creatinine clearance, blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and urine proteins were determined and also statistically recognized by variance analysis procedures (one-way ANOVA), with a post hoc Tukey multiple range test for comparison of means (p

Authors: Carfagna F, Del Vecchio L, Pontoriero G, Locatelli F Abstract INTRODUCTION: Hyperphosphatemia is common in late stages of chronic kidney disease and is often associated with elevated parathormone levels, abnormal bone mineralization, extra-osseous calcification, and increased risk of cardiovascular events and death. Several classes of oral phosphate binders are available to help control plasma phosphorus levels. Although effective at lowering serum phosphorus, they all have safety, tolerability, and compliance issues that need to be considered when selecting which one to use. Areas covered: This paper revi...

CONCLUSION: The cardiological societies' recommendation that patients with atrial fibrillation should be given oral anticoagulant drugs applies to the majority of such patients who also have chronic kidney disease. PMID: 29789105 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Akiyama K, Kimura T, Shiizaki K Abstract Calciprotein particles (CPPs) are a new biological marker of chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD). CPPs consist of phosphate, calcium, and some proteins, with phosphate being the major contributor to the level and biological activity of CPPs. Recent studies have shown the physiological and pathological significance of CPPs, including contributions to bone and mineral metabolism, and to tissue and organ impairments such as cardiovascular damage and inflammatory responses. These actions are well known as important aspects of CKD-MBD. Fibroblast g...

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a breathing disorder characterized by narrowing of the upper airway that impairs normal ventilation during sleep [1]. OSA is considered a public health problem due to its high prevalence that has been estimated as 22% in men and 17% in women in the general population [2] and due to its association with increased morbidity and mortality in the short term (traffic and job related accidents) [3,4] and the long term (cardiovascular diseases; CVD) [5-6].

g Sue K. Park Few studies have explored the association between mineral intake and chronic kidney disease (CKD). A cross-sectional analysis investigated the association between mineral intake (calcium, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, iron, and zinc) and CKD using the Health Examinee (HEXA) cohort of the Korean Genome and Epidemiologic Study (KoGES). For 159,711 participants, mineral intake was assessed by a food frequency questionnaire. CKD was defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of less than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2. Dietary intake of each mineral was divided into quartiles and the quartile including r...

The epidemic of obesity parallels that of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Obesity worsens the course of CKD mainly defined by an abnormal glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Patients with severe obesity stages (II and III with body mass index, BMI>35 kg/m2) are eligible for bariatric surgery (BS), which is the most efficient method of achieving durable weight loss. BS may reverse glomerular hyperfiltration, albuminuria, improve adipocytokine profile, and relieve diabetes and hypertension. Obesity remission following BS might prevent the progression of renal failure in populations with morbid obesity.

Conclusions In a region with low coronary disease incidence, the risk of death and CVE increased with decreasing eGFR. In ≥ 75-year-olds, the eGFR 45 to 59 category, which had borderline risk for CVE, included many individuals without significant additional risk.
