Notice of proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to implement two new mandatory Medicare payment models. The End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Treatment Choices Model (ETC Model) is a mandatory payment model to encourage greater use of home dialysis and kidney transplants. The Radiation Oncology Model (RO Model) promotes quality and financial accountability for providers and suppliers of radiotherapy and tests whether making prospective episode payments to hospital outpatient departments and freestanding radiation therapy centers improves quality of care and reduces Medicare spending. Comments on th...

Stevie Wonder will receive a kidney transplant in the coming months. Kidney disease is surprisingly common, especially in minority populations. Kidney donation can be performed from a living donor, and can be scheduled as opposed to performed as an emergency surgery.

Conclusion: Our study showed that bendamustine is a potentially toxic agent in the conditioning regimen for autologous SCT, resulting in significant liver, kidney, and gastrointestinal toxicity. Further studies are required to assess its safety and efficacy at reduced doses. PMID: 31309088 [PubMed]

ConclusionsProlonged use of cyclosporine may expose to several dose-related adverse events and may contribute to the development of allograft dysfunction but it does not necessarily cause relentless, progressive transplant failure if patients are carefully and consistently monitored during the follow-up.

A major obstacle in kidney transplantation for primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is the risk of disease recurrence. Recurrent FSGS affects up to 60% of first kidney grafts and exceeds 80% in patients who have lost their first graft due to recurrent FSGS. Clinical and experimental evidence support the hypothesis that a circulating permeability factor is the mediator in the pathogenesis of primary and recurrent disease. Despite all efforts, the causing agent has not yet been identified. Several treatment options for the management of recurrent FSGS have been proposed. In addition to plasma exchange, B-cell de...

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.
