ConclusionsThe HDV does not appear to provide additional protection beyond the SDV against all-cause mortality or influenza-related outcomes for adults undergoing hemodialysis. The additional cost and side effects associated with HDV should be considered when offering this vaccine. Future studies of HDV and other influenza vaccine strategies are warranted.

CONCLUSIONS: While the overall influenza vaccination rate has increased, use of high-dose vaccine among patients with ESRD was very low. Being an older patient, living in the Midwest, and receiving care at hospital-based facilities were the strongest predictors of receiving high-dose vaccine.

RESUMO No per íodo sazonal compreendido entre 2014 e 2015, a maior parte das infecções por influenza decorreu do vírus influenza A H3N2. Mais de dois terços dos vírus influenza A H3N2 circulante eram antigênica e geneticamente diferentes (drift) do componente A H3N2 da vacina da influenza sazonal 2014 - 20 15 para os hemisférios norte e sul. O objetivo deste trabalho foi relatar um caso de infecção por influenza A sazonal não H1N1 ocorrido em junho de 2015 em um paciente adulto com fibrose cística com doença pulmonar grave, previament...

Abstract Milk-Alkali syndrome (MAS) consists of a triad of hypercalcemia, metabolic alkalosis, and acute renal failure. We hereby report a 75-year-old Indian gentleman who presented to our emergency department with a history of generalized weakness and easy fatigability. Investigations were consistent with MAS secondary to calcium carbonate and calcitriol treatment to prevent osteoporosis, aggravated by H1N1 influenza vaccine. The patient was treated with hemodialysis and zoledronate. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of such association in the literature. PMID: 28748897 [PubMed - in process]

This meta-analysis looked at 15 prospective cohort studies, including 65 064 incident CKD cases.  Compared with never-smokers, the summary relative risks of incident CKD were 1.27 (95% CI 1.19–1.35) for ever-smokers, 1.34 (95% CI 1.23–1.47) for current smokers and 1.15 (95% CI 1.08–1.23) for former smokers. The SRRs for end-stage renal disease development were 1.51 (95% CI 1.24–1.84) for ever-smokers, 1.44 (95% CI 1.00–2.09) for former smokers and 1.91 (95% CI 1.39–2.64) for current smokers.  This data suggests that cigarette smoking is an independent risk factor for incid...
