The relationship between urinary kidney injury molecule-1 and blood bone metabolism markers in patients with chronic kidney disease 
.

CONCLUSION: UKIM-1/uCr levels are increased with the deterioration of CKD stage and are correlated with the development of CKD-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD).

AbstractObjectiveThis systematic review evaluated the impacts of non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and periodontitis in order to explore causality and assess the potential benefits of co-management.MethodsThis systematic review and meta-analyses were conducted by searching MEDLINE, EMBASE, PubMed, Cochrane Library, and Open GREY. Interventional studies of adult patients suffering from CKD and periodontitis were investigated. Effect of NSPT on renal function was analyzed.ResultsA total of 109 participants from four case-series studies and 97 participants from one randomize...

Circulating androgens prime the kidney for fibrosis upon infectious injury (Escherichia coli pyelonephritis) by enhancing local TGF β1 production and myofibroblast activation. AbstractRenal scarring after pyelonephritis is linked to long ‐term health risks for hypertension and chronic kidney disease. Androgen exposure increases susceptibility to, and severity of, uropathogenicEscherichia coli (UPEC) pyelonephritis and resultant scarring in both male and female mice, while anti ‐androgen therapy is protective against severe urinary tract infection (UTI) in these models. This work employed androgenized female C57BL/...

ConclusionsOur findings suggest that markers of urinary interstitial inflammation and injury in CKD patients are significantly correlated with 24-h UUA and Urinary excretion of uric acid (UEUA), and those with high 24-h UUA have lower levels of these markers. Renal uric acid excretion may also reflect the inflammation and injury of renal tubules under certain conditions.

AbstractBoth thin basement membrane nephropathy (TBMN) and autosomal dominant Alport syndrome (ADAS) are types of hereditary nephritis resulting from heterozygous mutations inCOL4A3 orCOL4A4 genes. Although TBMN is characterized by hematuria and thinning of the glomerular basement membrane (GBM) with excellent renal prognosis, some patients develop end-stage renal disease (ESRD) later in life. In contrast, although AS is characterized by progressive nephropathy with lamellation of the GBM, there are some patients diagnosed with ADAS from a family history of ESRD but who only suffer from hematuria with GBM thinning. These f...
