Conclusions: This study clearly demonstrated that the numbers of T-lymphocytes and macrophages were markedly increased in UUO rat kidneys with longer postobstructive days. The overexpression of Kv1.3-channels in leukocytes was thought to be responsible for the proliferation of these cells and the progression of renal fibrosis. This study strongly suggested the therapeutic usefulness of targeting lymphocyte Kv1.3-channels in the treatment of renal fibrosis. PMID: 31828127 [PubMed - in process]

A 30-year-old woman diagnosed for a 6-month history of right flank pain with presumed the UTUC of the right kidney. She underwent radical nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision, which reveals the infiltrating papillary mass of the ureter from the proximal region towards the ureterovesical junction...

She was found to have no evidence of disease within bladder or upper tract, however demonstrated a large papillary lesion within the vagina. This lesion stained for p40+, p16 patchy+, and GATA3+, all markers of UC, and the same molecular makeup of o...

AlmousaAbstractUreteral injury is common complication that need comprehensive understanding of ureteral injury management from minimal invasive intervention to ureteral reimplant in both early and late presentation. However, ureteral injury in duplex system rarely reported in literature. Here we are sharing our techniques and challenging in a patient who had a duplex ureteral injury with late presentation underwent robot assisted ureteral reimplantation.

However, molecules that intrinsically inhibit this pathway are less well known. Here, we report that the focal adhesion molecule Kindlin-2 inhibits Hippo signaling by interacting with and degrading MOB1 and promoting the interaction between MOB1 and the E3 ligase praja2. Kindlin-2 thus in...

ConclusionThe results support our hypothesis that successful correction of VUR is not sufficient to stop or reduce the latent inflammatory and fibrotic processes that have already started in the kidney regardless of the reflux grade and treatment option. Measuring the urinary levels of TGF- β1, VEGF, and MCP-1 may aid in the development of non-invasive, pathophysiologically relevant approach to diagnosis and monitoring of kidney injury and fibrosis in children with VUR.

The association of high-grade vesico-ureteral reflux (VUR) with renal dysplasia and/or scarring is well-established, and the combination of these factors has been shown to decrease the likelihood of VUR resolution. Other VUR parameters have similarly been shown to be associated with VUR non-resolution, including VUR grade and timing at cystography, associated urinary tract anatomical abnormalities, and bladder dysfunction.
