Hyperuricemia, Acute and Chronic Kidney Disease, Hypertension, and Cardiovascular Disease: Report of a Scientific Workshop Organized by the National Kidney Foundation

Publication date: June 2018Source: American Journal of Kidney Diseases, Volume 71, Issue 6Author(s): Richard J. Johnson, George L. Bakris, Claudio Borghi, Michel B. Chonchol, David Feldman, Miguel A. Lanaspa, Tony R. Merriman, Orson W. Moe, David B. Mount, Laura Gabriella Sanchez Lozada, Eli Stahl, Daniel E. Weiner, Glenn M. ChertowUrate is a cause of gout, kidney stones, and acute kidney injury from tumor lysis syndrome, but its relationship to kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes remains controversial. A scientific workshop organized by the National Kidney Foundation was held in September 2016 to review current evidence. Cell culture studies and animal models suggest that elevated serum urate concentrations can contribute to kidney disease, hypertension, and metabolic syndrome. Epidemiologic evidence also supports elevated serum urate concentrations as a risk factor for the development of kidney disease, hypertension, and diabetes, but differences in methodologies and inpacts on serum urate concentrations by even subtle changes in kidney function render conclusions uncertain. Mendelian randomization studies generally do not support a causal role of serum urate in kidney disease, hypertension, or diabetes, although interpretation is complicated by nonhomogeneous populations, a failure to consider environmental interactions, and a lack of understanding of how the genetic polymorphisms affect biological mechanisms related to urate. Although several small clinic...

Conclusion: The proposed depth-resolved MWPPG method can provide accurate measurements of SVR and BP, which are traditionally difficult to measure in a noninvasive or continuous fashion. Significance: This MWPPG work provides the wearable healthcare electronics of compact size with a low-cost and physiology-based solution for continuous measurement of BP and SVR.

Conclusion: Image registration applied to dynamic time series correlated with structural renal changes and should be further explored as a tool for invasive measurements of arteriosclerosis. Significance: Under the assumption that the proposed framework can be further developed in terms of sensitivity and specificity, it can provide clinicians with a non-invasive tool of high spatial coverage available for characterization of arteriosclerosis and potentially other pathological changes observed in chronic kidney disease.
