CONCLUSION: The data contradicted national studies reporting primary hypertension as the main cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD). A high rate of unknown causes and categorization bias were observed mainly in relation to primary hypertension as a cause of CKD, which affects the overall prevalence of causes of ESRD in patients on dialysis.

Nanotechnological foundations of a «new» Nephrology. Nefrologia. 2018 May 16;: Authors: Sorian ML, Rodríguez-Benot A, Valcárcel M Abstract After contextualising the generic frameworks of nanotechnology and nanomedicine, the 2disciplines are discussed in the field of Nephrology. The potential downside to nanonephrology is the renal clearance of nanoparticles, the use of which is ever-increasing both for nanomedicinal purposes and in nanofoods. The positive impact of nanotechnology in Nephrology is centred on the development of renal nanodiagnostics for basic renal function stud...

CONCLUSIONS: Chronic kidney disease and poor cardiac function are major risk factors for AKI in hypertensive inpatients using ACEI/ARB + diuretic therapy. The combination of thiazide diuretic and aldosterone antagonist had a higher risk of AKI than other single diuretics or diuretic combinations. PMID: 29778133 [PubMed - in process]

Mitochondrial dysfunction is increasingly recognized as a critical determinant of both hereditary and acquired kidney diseases. However, it remains poorly understood how mitochondrial metabolism is regulated to support normal kidney function and how its dysregulation contributes to kidney disease. Here, we show that the nuclear receptor estrogen-related receptor gamma (ERRγ)...

CONCLUSIONS Anemia was more common in diabetic CKD patients. Diabetes mellitus was independently associated with iron deficiency. Surprisingly, diminished iron availability was not more frequent in diabetic patients. The physio-pathological mechanisms that could explain these findings remain to be elucidated.
