Vaccination practices in dialysis patients: A narrative review.

Vaccination practices in dialysis patients: A narrative review. Semin Dial. 2018 May 09;: Authors: Kosmadakis G, Albaret J, Correia EDC, Somda F, Aguilera D Abstract In a period of turmoil concerning vaccination practices, there is a serious conflict between scientifically reasonable, evidence-based guidelines and the far-fetched rumors or misconceptions concerning the vaccination practices in the general population. When a significant portion of the medical and paramedical personnel may be deliberately unvaccinated against common biological agents, achieving effective vaccination rates in the dialysis population may be complicated. Vaccination rates are unacceptably low in dialysis patients and seroconversion rates are even lower; further, serological follow-up is generally poor. The particularly anergic immune system of the advanced chronic kidney disease patients is partly a cause of both high rates of infection and low rates of seroconversions. This narrative review is an effort to summarize current knowledge concerning the vaccination practices in dialysis patients with some specific recommendations based on these facts. Of particular interest is a new vaccine, the Zoster Recombinant, Adjuvanted Vaccine (Shingrix), which we will include in our discussion. PMID: 29742283 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

(Natural News) Researchers came up with a list of drinks that could harm the kidneys if consumed in excessive quantities. They identified beer, sugary drinks, and two healthy types of beverages – fruit juices and tea – as potential causes of chronic kidney disease. The most egregious offenders were carbonated and sweetened fruit drinks. Guzzling these bubbly, sweet beverages on...

O'Halloran* Department of Physiology, School of Medicine, College of Medicine and Health, University College Cork, Cork, Ireland Renal sensory nerves are important in the regulation of body fluid and electrolyte homeostasis, and blood pressure. Activation of renal mechanoreceptor afferents triggers a negative feedback reno-renal reflex that leads to the inhibition of sympathetic nervous outflow. Conversely, activation of renal chemoreceptor afferents elicits reflex sympathoexcitation. Dysregulation of reno-renal reflexes by suppression of the inhibitory refle...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (ASCT); however, its incidence and outcome in patients transplanted for multiple myeloma (MM) is unknown. Our results suggest that AKI occurs with low incidence and reduced severity after ASCT for MM. Prophylactic measures in patients with preexisting –kidney failure may further reduce this risk. AbstractAcute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication after allogeneic stem cell transplantation; however, its incidence and outcome in patients transplanted for multiple myeloma (MM) is unknown.

This study sought to determine whether lower extremity vascular dysfunction, as assessed by passive leg movement (PLM), is impaired in patients with chronic kidney diseae (CKD). As hypothesized, we observed a significantly diminished hyperemic response during PLM in CKD patients, suggesting impaired blood flow regulation and vascular dysfunction within the lower ‐limb vasculature. We identified significant relationships between the hyperemic responses during PLM and kidney function, potentially providing insight on the dynamic relationship between kidney health, endothelial function, and risk of CVD development in older ...

Najmi Diabetes and hypertension are the two major causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Epidemiological studies have found poor knowledge about the CKD among the general population. Hence, this study aimed to assess the awareness of CKD among type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients in India. Patients with confirmed T2DM were included in the study. Patients receiving dialysis or with a history of a kidney transplant were excluded. A validated questionnaire was used to assess knowledge about CKD. Demographic characteristics were presented using descriptive statistics and trends in groups were calculated using the chi-...
