Conclusion: Collectively, our results demonstrate that AFSCs may be a promising therapeutic treatment for ameliorating diabetes and the development of diabetic nephropathy and that the overexpression of SIRT3 in AFSCs may further increase the efficiency of stem cell-based therapy.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:1508 –1524

Authors: Schmalz G, Berisha L, Wendorff H, Widmer F, Marcinkowski A, Teschler H, Sommerwerck U, Haak R, Kollmar O, Ziebolz D Abstract BACKGROUND: Aim of this study was to investigate the association of the time under immunosuppression and different immunosuppressive medication on periodontal parameters and selected periodontal pathogenic bacteria of immunosuppressed patients after solid organ transplantation (SOT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: 169 Patients after SOT (lung, liver or kidney) were included and divided into subgroups according their time under (0-1, 1-3, 3-6, 6-10 and>10 years) and form of immunosuppre...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewPediatric kidney transplants have been performed for more than five decades. To achieve excellent patient outcomes, collaboration of multiple subspecialties is required. This manuscript will review recent advancements in different fields that relate to pediatric kidney transplantation.Recent FindingsWith improvements in patient selection, drugs, perioperative care, surgical technique and postoperative monitoring, outcomes including graft survival, patient survival, and delayed graft function/primary non-function have improved. Immunosuppressive regimens that minimize corticosteroids are increasingl...

Canakinumab may be a useful first-line treatment for renal transplant recipients with familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), according to recent research. Immunosuppressive drugs can interact with colchicine, the standard first-line treatment for FMF, and increase the incidence of side effects, such as diarrhea and myopathy...

In conclusion, a debate exists on whether aging is a disease in itself. Some authors suggest that physiological aging (or senescence) is not really distinguishable from pathology, while others argue that aging is different from age-related diseases and other pathologies. It is interesting to stress that the answer to this question has important theoretical and practical consequences, taking into account that various strategies capable of setting back the aging clock are emerging. The most relevant consequence is that, if we agree that aging is equal to disease, all human beings have to be considered as patients to be treat...

This study aimed to evaluate the impact of donor HTN on patient survival of SLKT recipients and to identify independent risk factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS Data from 3844 adult SLKT recipients receiving deceased donor grafts from March 2002 to December 2014 in the Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients (SRTR) database were retrospectively analyzed. Kaplan-Meier analysis was used to compare patient and graft survival. Multivariate Cox proportional hazard models were built to identify independent risk factors associated with patient and graft survival. RESULTS SLKT patients receiving HTN donor grafts had significantly s...
