Docs Still in Dark on Anticoagulant Choice in Severe Kidney Disease Docs Still in Dark on Anticoagulant Choice in Severe Kidney Disease

Although NOACs offer"similar or greater benefit" over warfarin-like drugs in early chronic kidney disease, lack of evidence in severe disease makes anticoagulant choice a judgment call, say experts.Medscape Medical News

ConclusionsThe risk of a subsequent major non-hip fragility fractures following hip fracture was not increased in patients with CKD G3 –G5 compared to eGFR>  60 ml/min. Mortality risk was higher in both hip fracture and non-hip fracture patients with CKD G4 and G5. The higher mortality risk may, as competing risk, explain our main finding of no increased or even decreased subsequent fracture risk after a hip fracture in patients with CKD G3–G5.

AbstractDaprodustat is a prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor that stimulates erythropoiesis in a manner similar to the natural response to hypoxia, whereby inhibition of hypoxia inducible factor (HIF) prolyl ‐4‐hydroxylases by daprodustat ultimately results in increased levels of HIF‐responsive genes. Daprodustat is under development as an emerging new class of agents for the treatment of anemia associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). This was a single‐center, single‐dose, open‐label, randomized, 2‐way crossover study in healthy Japanese male participants consisting of 2 parts. The primary objective was to eva...

Abstract Preeclampsia is defined as new-onset hypertension after the 20th week of gestation along with evidence of maternal organ failure. Rates of preeclampsia have steadily increased over the past 30 years, affecting approximately 4% of pregnancies in the United States and causing a high economic burden. The pathogenesis is multifactorial, with acknowledged contributions by placental, vascular, renal, and immunological dysfunction. Treatment is limited, commonly employing symptomatic management and/or early delivery of the fetus. Along with significant peripartum morbidity and mortality, current research continu...

ia JB Abstract Metformin, an adenosine monophosphate-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activator, has been shown in previous studies to reduce kidney fibrosis in different models of experimental chronic kidney disease (CKD). However, in all of these studies, the administration of metformin was initiated before the establishment of renal disease, which is a condition that does not typically occur in clinical settings. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the administration of metformin could arrest the progression of established renal disease in a well-recognized model of CKD, the subtotal kidney n...

Dietary potassium restrictions in kidney disease are complex to follow and may reduce quality of life. However, details on this impact are sparse. We therefore sought to explore patients ’ perspectives on the experienced impact of following low-potassium diets, to inform clinical practice and research.
