Catch-up growth in children with chronic kidney disease started on enteral feeding after 2 years of age

AbstractBackgroundEnteral feeding by tube in chronic kidney disease (CKD) before 2 years of age improves growth. Whether it is effective after this age is unknown. We assessed whether height and weight SDS changed after tube feeding was started in children with CKD above 2 years of age.MethodsRetrospective study of pre-transplant, pre-pubertal children (

Approximately 35.363 patients have diagnosed chronic kidney disease and according to population studies, 10.4% of these patients are Afro-descendant. We aim to assess the frequency of APOL1 variants G1 and G2 in Afro-descendant patients with ESRD treated at la Fundacion Valle del Lili University Hospital in Cali, Colombi...

CONCLUSIONS: Cellular therapy with MSCs is very promising and should be part of the treatment of AKI patients in combination with other approaches already available, helping to accelerate recovery and/or slow the progression to chronic kidney disease. Randomized, multicentre controlled studies are needed to develop robust protocols that validate population-based cell therapy with MSCs.

Abstract Recent developments in US kidney-related healthcare policy have made chronic kidney disease (CKD) a societal focus in the United States. In the biggest policy change since the 1972 Social Security Amendments that extended Medicare coverage to patients with kidney failure regardless of age, a 2019 presidential executive order pledged to reduce end-stage kidney disease, slow CKD progression, increase kidney transplants, and focus on home dialysis care. This manuscript seeks to outline key factors that can enable this milestone moment to evolve a policy framework that improves the health of society while bei...
