Conclusions: In recipients who developed BPAR, there was a significant temporal relationship between TAC C0 and BPAR incidence under TAC TDM that may not be detected in cross-sectional studies, especially if variability in hematocrit is not addressed. This supports a TAC C0–rejection relationship, which differs between recipients, and may explain why some recipients do or do not experience rejection within or below the TDM range, respectively. However, studies with larger sample sizes are needed to confirm this finding.

Raj K Yadav, Dipankar Bhowmik, Arunkumar Subbiah, Sushma Yadav, Soumita Bagchi, Sandeep Mahajan, Sanjay K AgarwalIndian Journal of Nephrology 2019 29(4):272-277 Prospective living kidney donors need meticulous evaluation prior to kidney donation. Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is considered the reference standard for diagnosing hypertension. With no prior study available in India in this context, we undertook this study to evaluate the utility of ABPM in kidney donors and effect of donor nephrectomy on renal function. This was a prospective observational study involving healthy prospective kidney donors betwe...

AbstractNonalcoholic steatohepatitis is the fastest-growing indication for the liver transplant and a leading cause of hepatocellular carcinoma among patients listed for liver transplantation in the USA. Post-transplant nonalcoholic hepatic steatosis and steatohepatitis are frequent complications of liver transplantation. Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis poses a significant challenge in both pre- and post-transplant period due to its association with metabolic syndrome, coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease, and obstructive sleep apnea. While optimal therapy is not yet available in the post-liver transplant setting, ...

Sonia Mehrotra, Raj Kumar Sharma, Manas R PatelIndian Journal of Nephrology 2019 29(4):242-247 Vitamin-D has immuno-modulatory properties besides its role in mineral and bone disorder (MBD) and could have a role in allograft outcome. Fifty-two chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis going for transplantation were prospectively studied before and after renal transplantation. FGF23, 25(OH) vitamin D, 1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D, PTH, serum Ca, serum PO4, and e-GFR status were evaluated. Vitamin D deficiency was seen in 25.0% of recipients before transplant (26.09 ± 12.19 ng/mL) and in 48.1% at 6 months post-tra...

In conclusion, we show here that sEVs are responsible for mediating paracrine senescence and speculate that they could be involved in inducing bystander senescence during therapy-induced senescence or aging. In fact, when compared to soluble factors, sEVs have different biophysical and biochemical properties as they have a longer lifespan than do soluble factors and they are more resistant to protease degradation. The idea that blocking sEV secretion could be a potential therapeutic approach to alleviate senescence "spreading" during chemotherapy-induced senescence or in aging tissues presents itself as a very at...
