Authors: Quintos A, Naranjo M, Kelly C, Quan SF, Sharma S Abstract PURPOSE: The HoSMed Database recently demonstrated a high prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in hospitalized obese patients. Based on a long-term follow-up, this study showed an improved survival among patients who were adherent with the therapy. In this post-hoc analysis we explore the characteristics, associations, and mortality outcome of OSA in the African American (AA) population. METHODS: These subset analyses included obese AA patients screened in the hospital as high-risk for OSA. Stepwise logistic regression analysis was used t...

This study investigated the association between chronic HBV infection and CKD in a nationwide multicenter study. Methods: A total of 265,086 subjects who underwent health-check examinations in 33 hospitals from January 2015 to December 2015 were enrolled. HBV surface antigen (HBsAg) positive cases (n = 10,048), and age- and gender-matched HBsAg negative controls (n = 40,192) were identified. CKD was defined as a glomerular filtration rate (GFR)

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewThis review addresses clinical challenges of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection in patients with chronic kidney disease and renal transplant recipients.Recent FindingsProphylactic antiviral therapy with nucleos(t)ide analogues is key to prevent HBV reactivation in renal transplant recipients. In addition, attaining adequate immunity following vaccination against HBV may permit transplantation of renal grafts from donors with evidence of prior HBV infection. The role of nucleos(t)ide analogues for treatment of recurrent or de novo HBV infection in renal transplant recipients is well established a...

Albuminuria, an early marker of chronic kidney disease (CKD), is one of the major risk factor for cardiovascular events [1,2] and overt nephropathy [3,4]. Undetected or untreated albuminuria increases the risk of CKD, being the clinical course of albuminuria usually progressive [5,6].

It has been observed that the consumption of legumes within a varied and Mediterranean diet has beneficial effects in prevention and control of many diseases, including chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recently, legumes have also been considered a good source of protein for CKD patients. However, despite their benefits, guidelines still recommend a limit to their consumption by these patients because of legumes ’ high potassium and phosphorus content, which are minerals whose intake must be controlled.

Relationships between abdominal aortic calcification, glomerular filtration rate, and cardiovascular risk factors in patients with non-dialysis dependent chronic kidney disease
. Clin Nephrol. 2018 Oct 12;: Authors: Zhou Y, Hellberg M, Kouidi E, Deligiannis A, Höglund P, Clyne N Abstract BACKGROUND: Abdominal aortic calcification (AAC) is an established risk factor for cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We hypothesized that AAC is associated with a decline in glomerular filtration rate (GFR) as well as with some other cardiovascular risk factors. MATERIALS...

Abstract Introduction Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection leads to important morbidity and mortality through liver disease and extra-hepatic manifestations. Recent evidence suggests the role of HCV in developing chronic kidney disease (CKD); also, HCV adversely impacts on cardiovascular (CV) disease both in the general population and in patients with CKD. Areas covered All-oral, interferon-free direct-acting antiviral agents are currently available; anti-HCV regimens based on direct-acting antiviral agents (DAAs) are provided with high efficacy and safety and short treatment duration. However, some difficult-to-trea...
