Authors: Franco ÁO, Starosta RT, Roriz-Cruz M Abstract One of the mechanisms proposed for chronic kidney disease (CKD)-related cognitive impairment is the accumulation of uremic toxins due to the deterioration of the renal clearance function. Cognition can be categorized into five major domains according to its information processing functions: memory, attention, language, visual-spatial, and executive. We performed a review using the terms 'uric acid', 'indoxyl sulfate', 'p-cresyl sulfate', 'homocysteine', 'interleukins' and 'parathyroid hormone'. These are the compounds that were found to be strongly assoc...

The aim of the study was to improve the frequency of diagnosing chronic kidney disease (CKD) in seniors with diabetes. Less than 10% of those with stages 2 or 3 CKD and less than 50% with stage 4 CKD know they have renal impairment. A pre-post study design was implemented in 2 primary care facilities. The study sample was 222 older adults aged> 55 years with diabetes. A medical record audit verified the number of patients diagnosed with CKD doubled from 16 preintervention to 32 postintervention (P  = .014).

Authors: Esmaeili Jadidi M, Oliaei F Abstract Urinary tract anomalies are common and comprise about 20% to 30% of total congenital anomalies. This spectrum consists of many different anomalies of the urinary tract that may be syndromic or nonsyndromic with different etiologies. In this case report, a patient with single kidney and urinary tract signs is introduced that was diagnosed accidentally. The finding of different anomalies in different organ systems should lead us to examination of the intactness of the urinary tract. In these disorders, if there is no need for immediate intervention, long-term follow-up ca...

Authors: Gou SJ, Yu SB, Qiu HY, Hu ZX Abstract Awareness of the uncommon associated clinical manifestations of immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4)-related kidney disease is essential for the early diagnosis and effective treatment of patients. To the best of our knowledge, there have been few reports of patients with IgG4-related kidney disease associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. We here report a rare case of IgG4-related kidney disease associated with autoimmune hemolytic anemia. A 70-year-old man with kidney dysfunction and severe anemia had been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and treated without any improve...

Authors: Mirfatahi M, Imani H, Tabibi H, Nasrollahi A, Hedayati M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder is a common complication in hemodialysis patients. The present study was designed to investigate the effects of flaxseed oil, a rich source of plant omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, on serum markers of bone formation and resorption in hemodialysis patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this randomized controlled trial, 34 hemodialysis patients were randomly assigned to either the flaxseed oil or the control group. The patients in the flaxseed oil group received 6 g/d of ...

Authors: Yari Z, Mirmiran P Abstract Chronic kidney disease is defined as a glomerular filtration rate lower than 60 mL/min/1.73 m2, which is regarded as a public health priority and part of the growing burden of noncommunicable diseases. Reduced kidney function is concomitant with high levels of inflammatory factors, abnormal lipid profile, and anemia, as well as bone abnormalities, calcium deposition outside the bones, endothelial dysfunction, and cardiomyopathy. Furthermore, metabolic acidosis is a common complication in chronic kidney disease that is associated with secondary hyperparathyroidism and faster kidn...

Authors: Wang Y, Zhao Z, Yang W, Li L, Zhu F, Pei G, Yang J, Zhu H, Xu H, Wang M, Yang Q, Hu Z, Wang P, Xu G, Zeng R, Yao Y Abstract Tamoxifen is used to activate tamoxifen-dependent Cre recombinase (CreER) to generate time- and tissue-specific genetically mutant mice. However, tamoxifen is also an active estrogen analogue that binds with higher affinity to estrogen receptors and exhibits anti-apoptosis, anti-inflammation, and antifibrotic properties. Renal ischemia reperfusion (I/R) injury is characterized by increased apoptosis and inflammation, so optimal utility of tamoxifen-inducible CreER genetic systems in I...

In conclusion CKD results in the cerebral tissue activation of inflammatory and oxidative pathways, inhibition of antioxidant and cytoprotective system and erosion of cerebral capillary junctional complex, events that contribute to CNS dysfunction and impaired blood brain barrier.

Conclusion: PPI was not associated with clinically significant differences in serum biomarkers of inflammation, insulin resistance, cardiovascular risk, and renal function. Rather, increasing BMI was strongly associated with PPI use and clinically significant differences in these biomarkers.

Conclusions: In this retrospective analysis of GIAD at a single institution, patients with NISGIAD compared with ISGIAD had a 4 times odds of rebleeding within 1 year after capsule endoscopy. This is a novel study, as the distribution of GIAD has not been previously described as being a risk factor for rebleeding.
