Clinical management of patients with hemophilia A in nephrology: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges illustrated by the cases of 2 patients.

[Clinical management of patients with hemophilia A in nephrology: Diagnostic and therapeutic challenges illustrated by the cases of 2 patients]. Nephrol Ther. 2019 Jan 16;: Authors: Fedi M, Falaise C, Lanot A, Von Kotze C, Robert T, Piétri L, Henri P, Delmotte N, Botta D, Verhelst D, Chambost H, Brunet P, Jourde-Chiche N Abstract Hemophilia A is an X-linked genetic hemorrhagic disorder characterized by a factor VIII deficiency. The availability of secured substitution products has led to a dramatic improvement of life expectancy in hemophiliac patients. Nowadays, adult hemophiliac patients may develop Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) resulting from age-related comorbidities (hypertension, obesity, diabetes). In addition, the high prevalence of viral infections in this population exposes patients to an increased risk of CKD. The risk of hemorrhage in hemophiliac patients is a challenge for their clinical management, both for diagnostic procedures (kidney biopsy in particular) and for renal replacement therapy (dialysis or renal transplantation) when it is needed. This work provides an update of the literature data concerning the management of hemophiliac patients in nephrology, illustrated by the cases of two patients.

Rats were fed standard or cafeteria (CAF) diets for 12 weeks, and during the final 3 weeks, CAF animals were administered vehicle, Captopril or Hpp11. Systolic blood pressure (SBP) was recorded weekly. Body weight and plasmatic lipid and glucose level...

ConclusionsOur results suggest that metformin users are more likely to initiate preventive therapies and engage in other healthy behaviours. Failure to account for these behaviours may introduce healthy user bias into studies evaluating the effects of oral antihyperglycemic therapies.RésuméObjectifsLe biais lié aux utilisateurs sains selon lequel les patients ayant recours aux soins de santé sont plus susceptibles d'entreprendre des traitements préventifs et d'adopter des comportements sains liés au mode de vie est bien connu dans les études observationnelles, particuli&egra...

This study is of potential translational significance in determining the role of gut microbiota-mediated bile acid metabolism in modulating diet-induced glucose intolerance and hepatic steatosis in the hamster.Graphical abstractIn the antibiotic-treated hamsters, hepatic CYP7B1-mediated alternative bile acid synthesis was activated. In hamsters, intestinal TβMCA accumulated and secondary bile acid levels were downregulated after gut microbiota depletion. Gut microbiota depletion-derived bile acid modulation results in intestinal FXR suppression and improvements of metabolic disorders in HFD-fed hamsters.

ConclusionThe SAFB MFI and T-FCXM ratio, both semi-quantitative parameters, only partially reflected the subtlety of the anti-HLA antibody/antigen interaction as it can be analyzed by SPR. Future clinical studies using SPR for anti-HLA antibodies characterization could bring novel insights into the understanding of HLA/anti-HLA interaction and therefore anti-HLA antibodies pathogenicity.

In the present study, we screened differentially expressed genes in a murine model of renal IR injury by using high-throughput assays. We identified Corin as one of the most significantly downregulated genes among 2218 differentially expressed genes (≥2-fold, P
