AbstractPurpose of ReviewLupus nephritis is a frequent complication of systemic lupus erythematosus and is more common and severe in children. This is a disease of the immune system characterized by T cell, B cell, and complement activation, as well as immune complex formation and deposition. The introduction of steroids and later cyclophosphamide transformed lupus nephritis from a fatal to a treatable condition. However, the standard therapies currently used for treatment carry significant toxicity and chronic kidney disease still remains a far too frequent outcome. To address these issues, we will review current and emer...

In this issue ofJAMA, Webster and colleagues report the results of the Triple Pill vs Usual Care Management for Patients with Mild-to-Moderate Hypertension (TRIUMPH) pragmatic randomized clinical trial that evaluated the efficacy of a low-dose combination pill containing 20 mg of telmisartan, 2.5 mg of amlodipine, and 12.5 mg of chlorthalidone compared with usual care among 700 adults with hypertension in Sri Lanka. The primary outcome was the proportion of patients whose blood pressure (BP) was controlled at 6 months, which was defined as a systolic/diastolic BP of less than 140/90 mm Hg or less than 130/80 mm Hg among pa...

ABSTRACT Objective: Chronic kidney disease is characterized by progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function. The impact of this disease on oral health also presents controversial results. The aim of the study was to determine oral health conditions and oral symptoms of patients with Chronic kidney disease undergoing hemodialysis. Methods: A cross-sectional study on a population with chronic renal failure was performed. Anamnesis and oral examination, decayed, miss and filled teeth (DMFT) index, community periodontal index, simplified oral hygiene index (OHI-S) and gingival index were conducted. Data were processed ...

BurganosAbstractClassic hemodialysis only provides a limited removal of protein bound uremic toxins (PBUT) in patients with chronic kidney disease. A bioartificial kidney device, BAK, composed of a living cell monolayer of conditionally immortalized proximal tubule epithelial kidney cells (ciPTEC) cultured of hollow fiber polymeric membrane can remove protein bound uremic toxins from the blood in combination with classic hemodialysis. The development and clinical implemen...

AbstractWe investigated the median estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) changes in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) patients treated front line with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs). A large cohort of 397 patients —320 treated front line with imatinib, 25 with dasatinib, and 53 with nilotinib—was retrospectively analyzed at a single institution. The eGFR was calculated according to the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equation for all patients at baseline and then at 6 and 12 months, and at the last follow-up. Taking into account eGFR changes during the first year of treatment and ex...

Authors: Franco ÁO, Starosta RT, Roriz-Cruz M Abstract One of the mechanisms proposed for chronic kidney disease (CKD)-related cognitive impairment is the accumulation of uremic toxins due to the deterioration of the renal clearance function. Cognition can be categorized into five major domains according to its information processing functions: memory, attention, language, visual-spatial, and executive. We performed a review using the terms 'uric acid', 'indoxyl sulfate', 'p-cresyl sulfate', 'homocysteine', 'interleukins' and 'parathyroid hormone'. These are the compounds that were found to be strongly assoc...

The aim of the study was to improve the frequency of diagnosing chronic kidney disease (CKD) in seniors with diabetes. Less than 10% of those with stages 2 or 3 CKD and less than 50% with stage 4 CKD know they have renal impairment. A pre-post study design was implemented in 2 primary care facilities. The study sample was 222 older adults aged> 55 years with diabetes. A medical record audit verified the number of patients diagnosed with CKD doubled from 16 preintervention to 32 postintervention (P  = .014).

Authors: Esmaeili Jadidi M, Oliaei F Abstract Urinary tract anomalies are common and comprise about 20% to 30% of total congenital anomalies. This spectrum consists of many different anomalies of the urinary tract that may be syndromic or nonsyndromic with different etiologies. In this case report, a patient with single kidney and urinary tract signs is introduced that was diagnosed accidentally. The finding of different anomalies in different organ systems should lead us to examination of the intactness of the urinary tract. In these disorders, if there is no need for immediate intervention, long-term follow-up ca...
