IJERPH, Vol. 16, Pages 1453: Factors Correlating to the Development of Hepatitis C Virus Infection in Hemodialysis Patients—Findings Mainly from Asiatic Populations: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health doi: 10.3390/ijerph16081453 Authors: Gaofeng Cai Hongjie Zheng Lan Luo Zhengting Wang Zhenggang Jiang Shuangfei Xu Huakun Lv Yongdi Chen Biao Zhou Chonggao Hu Hemodialysis is an effective replacement therapy for chronic renal failure patients. In recent decades, the number of hemodialysis patients has grown rapidly and some measures for preventing blood-borne diseases have been implemented, but hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection remains a significant problem. The meta-analysis published in 2009 on HCV infection-related factors was based on localized study objects, and some additional studies have been published since 2009; however, the contribution of these factors remains under dispute. Our study pooled the odds ratios (ORs) or mean standard deviations (MDs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) and analyzed sensitivity using Review Manager 5.1 software (5.1 version Copenhagen: The Nordic Cochrane Centre; 2011) by searching data in the PubMed, Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, and EBSCO databases. Spearman correlation analysis was performed using the SPSS package. In our meta-analysis, 1715 HCV-infected hemodialysis patients and 7093 non-HCV-infected hemodialysis patients from 44 studies ...

Authors: Raposo JV, Sarmento DJS, Pinto RBDS, Lopes AO, Gallottini M, Tozetto-Mendoza TR, Braz-Silva PH, de Paula VS Abstract Backgroung: Roseolovirus latency and persistence in salivary glands that are frequently reactivated after renal transplantation to cause infection have been reported. However, limited information is available on the persistence and excretion of HHV-6 and HHV-7 during and after transplant. Methods: 32 renal transplant recipients were followed up before (T1) and after transplant (T2 and T3) and viral replication (via assessment of mRNA) in oral fluid samples investigated. Roseolovirus...

We present a case of BP in a 33-year-old man with history of bladder exstrophy from birth and renal transplantation from 5 years ago. There was no finding in favour of his disease was caused by graft rejection, drug usage, or viral infection. Therefore, BP could be an accidental finding in this patient with idiopathic aetiology.

Authors: Yang B, Li J, Qiao Y, Zhao Y, Yang H Abstract A 79-year-old patient developed severe hypoalbuminemia associated with eosinophilic peritonitis (EP) after receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) for 3 years. The hypoalbuminemia and EP treated successfully with the use of prednisone acetate. This case is reported to emphasize the importance of diagnosis of EP that should be suspected when the peritoneal dialysis (PD) patient presents with severe hypoalbuminemia combined with turbid effluent along with repeated negative cultures. A short course of low-dose oral glucocorticoid may be consider...

Authors: Abasi K, Lotfi Z, Ahmadi M, Majd HM, Hasanzamani B Abstract INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary hypertension (PHTN) is a common complication in patients with chronic kidney disease. Delayed Graft Function (DGF), on the other hand; is an essential complication after kidney transplantation. These two complications increase morbidity and mortality in patients. The effect of PHTN on cardiovascular and graft blood supply, as well as the same mechanisms underlying PTHN and DGF; led us to investigate the relationship between them. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, 306 patients aged 18 years or older who underw...

Authors: Ossareh S, Bagheri M, Abbasi M, Abolfathi S, Bohlooli A Abstract INTRODUCTION: Seven months after the emergence of SARS-COV-2 virus, there is paucity of data regarding the epidemiology of the virus in hemodialysis patients. We aim to present the results of the screening program implied after outbreak of COVID-19 in a referral hemodialysis ward. METHODS: We started clinical screening and obligatory mask wearing for dialysis patients and personnel on 20-Feb-2020. However 11 symptomatic COVID-19 patients emerged till day +36. On days +39 and +40 a screening program was implied including measurement of SAR...
