Baxter inks partnership deal with International Society of Nephrology

Baxter (NYSE:BAX) said today it inked a partnership deal with the International Society of Nephrology looking to advance awareness and therapy for patients with chronic kidney disease, primarily in low and middle-income countries where the disease is growing the fastest. In the collaborative partnership , Deerfield, Ill.-based Baxter and the ISN will look to support further therapy research and education about chronic kidney disease, while also looking to develop better care models at lower costs. “ISN and Baxter’s collaboration aims to address the urgent and growing challenge kidney disease is causing healthcare systems in providing quality care to patients globally. Our organization is dedicated to connecting communities to collaborate on supporting greater access to care models that focus on how to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of kidney disease,” Dr. David Harris of Australia’s University of Sydney said in a prepared statement. “It is Baxter’s goal to make renal care available to people in need, while driving better outcomes through new standards. Our partnership with ISN moves us closer to this goal by combining Baxter’s clinical and innovation expertise with ISN’s educational and research expertise in a truly transformative approach to increasing access to care worldwide,” Baxter renal care GM Laura Angelini said in a press release. In March, Baxter said it that it closed the $153 million acquisiti...

Authors: Chillo P, Ismail A, Sanyiwa A, Ruggajo P, Kamuhabwa A Abstract Background: Hypertensive retinopathy is a known marker of cardiovascular disease, and among unselected patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) more severe retinopathy has been associated with lower estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). This association has, however, not been widely studied among nondiabetic hypertensive patients with CKD, especially in sub-Saharan Africa. We aimed to determine the prevalence and severity of hypertensive retinopathy and its relationship with eGFR among nondiabetic CKD patients seen at Muhimbili Nationa...

ConclusionsPatients in intermediate stages do not receive follow-up with a multidisciplinary team at the recommended frequency. The preventive approach of the progression of renal disease in the intermediate stage in the studied municipality was not within the recommendations of the Ministry of Health.

Conclusion MethodologyThere were 4 clinical trials approved at the National University Malaysia in collaboration with Cytopeutics (Cyberjaya, Malaysia) which provided the mesenchymal stromal cells (Cyto-MSC) for treatment of acute stroke, heart failure, diabetes with critical limb ischemia and severe deforming osteoarthritis. All patients received 65-130 × 106 Cyto-MSC intravenously. Severity of chronic kidney disease is based on baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and serum creatinine which are markers of renal dysfunction. These and other blood tests including fasting blood sugar (FBS) and Hba1...

Here we demonstrate a reproducible method with minimal artifacts for single-nucleus Droplet-based RNA sequencing (snDrop-Seq) that we use to resolve thirty distinct cell populations in human adult kidney. We define molecular transition states along more than ten nephron segments spanning two major kidney region...

CONCLUSIONS: YF acute severe cases show a generalised involvement of different organs (liver, spleen, heart, kidneys, intestines and pancreas), and different parameters were related to outcome. Factor V and lipase are independent variables associated with death, reinforcing the importance of hemorrhagic events due to fulminant liver failure and pointing to pancreatitis as a relevant event in the outcome of the disease.

Authors: Herrera-Añazco P, Atamari-Anahui N, Flores-Benites V Abstract We conducted a descriptive and ecological study that evaluated the relationship between the prevalence trend of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), the number of nephrologists, and the number of hemodialysis services of the Ministry of Health (MINSA). The study was based on a secondary analysis of the care provided by MINSA, the Observatory of Human Resources in Health, and the hemodialysis services registered as Health Service Providers of the Intangible Health Solidarity Fund (FISSAL, in Spanish). The adjusted prevalence of CKD ...

Conclusions. Our genetic study identified a novel association at NMT2 for CKD and showed for the first time strong associations of the APOL1 variants with ESKD across multi-ethnic populations. Our findings suggest differences in genetic effects across CKD severity and provide information for study design of genetic studies of CKD in diverse populations.
