850 Million People Worldwide Have Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney diseases affect 10 percent of men and nearly 12 percent of women around the world. Up to 10.5 million people need dialysis or a kidney transplant, but many don't get these treatments due to cost or lack of resources, the International Society of Nephrology says.

Vaccination is an important component of maintaining health and wellness in patients with kidney disease. There is a changing epidemiologic landscape for several vaccine-preventable illnesses from childhood to adulthood and unfounded public perception of safety concerns. Several mechanisms have been proposed to cause inadequate vaccine protection in this hi...

BrustPatients with chronic kidney disease have impaired immunity that increases their risk of infection. Increased incidence of mycobacterial infections, in particular Mycobacterium tuberculosis, is described in patients undergoing hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis as well as after kidney transplantation in low-prevalence and high-prevalence settings. Diagnosis of this infection can be challenging because of atypical presentations that may lead to treatment delay and, consequently, ...

SinhaAbstractRenal disease in women of childbearing age is estimated to be approximately 3%; consequently, renal disease is not an uncommon comorbidity in pregnancy. There has been considerable evidence published over the last 20 years to suggest that renal disease in pregnancy is associated with higher maternal, fetal, and offspring morbidity. Studies published are largely heterogeneous; include unmatched cohort studies; and focus on early neonatal out...

AbstractDespite the advances in renal transplantation over the last decades, chronic allograft dysfunction remains the largest concern for patients, their families, clinicians and other members of the multi-disciplinary team. Although we have made progress in improving patient and renal allograft survival within the first year after transplantation, the rate of transplant failure with requirement for commencement of dialysis or re-transplantation has essentially remained unchanged. It is important that paediatric and adult nephrologists and transplant surgeons, not only manage their patients and their renal transplants but...
