The Growing Epidemic of Chronic Kidney Disease: Preventive Strategies to Delay the Risk for Progression to ESRD.

The Growing Epidemic of Chronic Kidney Disease: Preventive Strategies to Delay the Risk for Progression to ESRD. Adv Exp Med Biol. 2019;1121:57-59 Authors: Assadi F Abstract Hypertension, obesity and metabolic syndromes are leading risk factors for the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Considering the high prevalence of hypertension and obesity in children and adolescents and it's risk of progression to cardiovascular disease, CKD should be considered a serious long-term health issue in children with metabolic syndrome. Prevention of CKD requires a professional teamwork consisting of primary care physicians, nephrologists, nutritionist, pharmacist, and social work to identify and manage children at risk of developing CKD in order to provide a highly valuable management strategies. This review focuses on the principles underlying the importance of a team approach for CKD prevention. PMID: 31392652 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 14 September 2019Source: Neuroscience &Biobehavioral ReviewsAuthor(s): Josep Moreno-RiusAbstractOpioid addiction has reached the epidemic status in the United States in recent years. A multitude of factors have contributed to an alarming increase in misuse and health issues related to these drugs. Although medications exist to treat some aspects of opioid addiction since long ago, relapse and fatality rates remain very high despite their long-term availability. Therefore, more research devoted to better understanding its neural substrates is needed to aid developing new treatment opti...

Authors: Farrugia FA, Charalampopoulos A Abstract Pheochromocytomas are rare tumors originating in the adrenal medulla. They may be sporadic or in the context of a hereditary syndrome. A considerable number of pheochromocytomas carry germline or somatic gene mutations, which are inherited in the autosomal dominant way. All patients should undergo genetic testing. Symptoms are due to catecholamines over production or to a mass effect. Diagnosis is confirmed by raised plasma or urine metanephrines or normetanephrines. Radiology assists in the tumor location and any local invasion or metastasis. All the patients shoul...

CONCLUSIONS: We hypothesize that RAS components expression is compensated differently in males and females. The observed loss of compensatory relationships in RAS between AT1 and Agt and AT1 and MasR in male rats under a salt diet can contribute to the differences observed in human with hypertension associated with an unhealthy diet.

CONCLUSIONS: Results of this study provide evidence that obesity affects the expression of the subset of genes related to immune response in the blood and that development of insulin resistance in obese adolescents is associated with strong down-regulation of the expressions of HLA-DRA, HLA-DRB1, HLA-F, and HLA-G genes, which may be contribute to the development of obesity complications. It is possible that transcription factor NFX1 and miR-190b participate in downregulation of HLA-DRA gene expression in the blood of obese adolescents with insulin resistance.

CONCLUSIONS: Results of this investigation provide evidence that insulin resistance in obese adolescents is associated with gene specific changes in the expression of IGF1, IGF2, IGFBP2, IGFBP5, IGFBP7, and HTRA1 genes and these changes possibly contribute to the development of glucose intolerance and insulin resistance.

In this study, we investigated the genetic contribution to renal disease in Tiwi Islanders by conducting a GWAS, in which associations were tested between SNP genetic variants and single measure ACR levels. A number of nominally significantly associated SNPs were identified. These SNPs did not reach genome wide significance, probably due to the small sample size. The top eight SNPs were re-tested for association in a separately collected cohort from the same population. Four of these SNPs were significantly associated with ACR in the replication sample (p

Abstract Diabetes and hypertension are the major causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Epidemiological studies within the last few decades have revealed that obesity-associated renal disease is a emerging epidemic and that the increasing prevalence of obesity parallels the increased rate of CKD. This has led to the inclusion of obesity as an independent risk factor for CKD. A major complication when studying the relationship between obesity and renal injury is that cardiovascular and metabolic disorders that may result from obesity including hyperglycemia, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, or the cluster of these ...
