Cell-Cycle Arrest Biomarkers: Usefulness for Cardiac Surgery-Related Acute Kidney Injury in Neonates and Infants*
Conclusions: These findings question the usefulness of (TIMP-1) × (IGFBP-7) for the prediction of cardiac surgery-related acute kidney injury in neonates and infants when measured within 3 hours of cardiopulmonary bypass.

ConclusionsOur data demonstrated a graded, monotonic, dose –response relationship between the number of off-target KPIs and HRQOL. Such relationship was not mediated by patients’ satisfaction and may be attributed to amelioration of disease-specific symptoms and functional capacity.
CONCLUSION: The preventive strategy is fundamental, since the therapy is complex with poorly validated effectiveness. PMID: 32645129 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the seventh human coronavirus infectious disease, was first reported in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, followed by its rapid spread globally (251,059 deaths, on May 5, 2020, by Johns Hopkins University). An early clinical report showed that fever, cough, fatigue, sputum production, and myalgia were initial symptoms, with the development of pneumonia as the disease progressed. Increases in the level of serum liver enzymes, D-dimer, cardiac troponin I, and creatinine have been observed in severely ill patients, indicating that multiple organ failure had occurred in these cases. Lymphopen...
Patients receiving chronic hemodialysis treatments are at a higher risk of fracture compared to the general population. While the use of heparin during dialysis is crucial to avoid thrombosis of the extracorpo...

Conclusion: In this small series of patients, with adjustment of the sodium concentration of dialysate and reinjection fluid, the use of citrate was found to be safe.Blood Purif
Conclusions: Although frailty prevalence increases with age, younger patients have a high burden. Clinicians caring for this vulnerable population should recognize that younger patients may experience frailty and screen all age groups.Am J Nephrol
