Authors: Gladwin MT Abstract Sickle cell disease (SCD) is an autosomal recessive disease in which homozygosity for a single point mutation in the gene encoding the β-globin chain produces hemoglobin S molecules that polymerize within the erythrocyte during deoxygenation; the result is sustained hemolytic anemia and vaso-occlusive events. As patients live to adulthood, the chronic impact of sustained hemolytic anemia and episodic vaso-occlusive episodes leads to progressive end-organ complications. This scenario culminates in the development of 1 or more major cardiovascular complications of SCD for which there...

CONCLUSIONS: Our results show that TFA could dose-dependently ameliorate renal inflammation by inhibiting the activation of iRhom2/TACE signalling and attenuating ER stress. These results suggest that TFA has potential therapeutic value for the treatment of DN in humans. PMID: 29221422 [PubMed - in process]

[Development of methods to evaluate nephrological screening and support measures, and lessons learned from the Styrian nephrological screening program "niere.schützen"]. Z Evid Fortbild Qual Gesundhwes. 2017 Dec 04;: Authors: Poggenburg S, Jeitler K, Semlitsch T, Stigler F, Krisper P, Rosenkranz A, Siebenhofer A Abstract Throughout the world, the incidence and prevalence of patients with chronic kidney disease have been steadily rising. In 2016, the Styrian nephrology awareness program "niere.schützen" ("Kidney Protection") was launched to early identify patients...

Authors: Abdelraheem MB Abstract Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a relatively common condition, encountered in everyday paediatric clinical practice. It is an important cause of morbidity and mortality in children both inside and outside intensive care units. It is associated with prolonged hospital stay and progression to chronic kidney disease. The burden of AKI is particularly high in low- and middle-income countries where rural areas and smaller cities in the countryside predominate. Most of these areas suffer from poverty, poor sanitation, water quality and hygiene, lack of education and poor access to health car...

Publication date: November 2017 Source:Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 24, Issue 6 Author(s): Ayesa N. Mian, George J. Schwartz Rapid, accurate, and precise measures of kidney function are essential for daily management of patients. While plasma and urinary clearances provide the greatest accuracy for assessing glomerular filtration rate (GFR), these are often impractical particularly for the care of children. Serum creatinine, the most commonly used endogenous marker, is simple, convenient, and practical but less accurate because of the influence of non-GFR determinants such as muscle mass, which increases wit...

Cisek Congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tracts can result in diminished natal kidney function, possibly through common embryologic pathway disruption or as a result of development taking place in the face of disordered ‘post-renal’ drainage. Impaired conduit and reservoir function present potential for an ongoing assault leading to further deterioration and progression of chronic kidney disease, a risk that extends to adults with these conditions, even after “correction”. T...

Publication date: November 2017 Source:Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 24, Issue 6 Author(s): Scott E. Wenderfer, Joseph P. Gaut Unique challenges exist in the diagnosis and treatment of glomerular diseases with their onset during childhood. Mounting evidence supports the notion that earlier onset cases occur due to larger numbers of genetic risk alleles. Nearly all causes of adult-onset glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and thrombotic microangiopathy have also been described in children, although the prevalence of specific causes differs. Postinfectious glomerulonephritis, Henoch-Schönlein purpura n...

Publication date: November 2017 Source:Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 24, Issue 6 Author(s): Anjali Aggarwal, David Rodriguez-Buritica Hypertension (HT) is a public health problem in children particularly related to the epidemic of overweight and obesity. Monogenic forms of HT are important in the differential diagnosis in children presenting with severe or refractory HT, who have a family history of early-onset HT, unusual physical examination findings, and/or characteristic hormonal and biochemical abnormalities. Most genetic defects in these disorders ultimately result in increased sodium transport in the d...
