Noninfectious, Severe Cryoglobulinemic Vasculitis with Renal Involvement - Safety and Efficacy of Long-Term Treatment with Rituximab
CONCLUSION: Data from our observation show the efficacy of rituximab in the refractory, nonviral cryoglobulinemic vasculitis with a severe course of the disease. However, the therapy is associated with the risk of SAEs, especially in elderly patients with kidney failure and significant immunologic alterations.PMID:34295176 | PMC:PMC8291846 | DOI:10.2147/IJNRD.S315388 (Source: International Journal of Nephrology and Renovascular Disease)

Low-Intensity Shockwave Therapy (LI-ESWT) in Diabetic Kidney Disease: Results from an Open-Label Interventional Clinical Trial
CONCLUSION: LI-ESWT treatment did not significantly improve kidney function and albumin excretion. It is concluded that LI-ESWT is not harmful. A randomized blinded study should be performed to clarify whether adjunctive treatment with LI-ESWT is superior to standard treatment of DKD.PMID:34285548 | PMC:PMC8286109 | DOI:10.2147/IJNRD.S315143 (Source: International Journal of Nephrology and Renovascular Disease)

Role of Urinary Beta 2 Microglobulin and Kidney Injury Molecule-1 in Predicting Kidney Function at One Year Following Acute Kidney Injury
Int J Nephrol Renovasc Dis. 2021 Jul 5;14:225-234. doi: 10.2147/IJNRD.S319933. eCollection 2021.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: There is only limited information on the utility of urinary biomarkers in predicting long-term kidney function following acute kidney injury (AKI). The current study assessed whether urinary beta 2 microglobulin/creatinine (B2M/creat) and kidney injury molecule-1/creatinine (KIM-1/creat) ratios, measured in the early recovery phase of AKI, are predictive of kidney function at one year.METHODS: This is a prospective study done in a tertiary care centre in South India, from March 2017 to December 2018.

Using the Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) criteria to define AKI, an estimated 24-59% of African children with severe malaria have AKI with most AKI community-acquired. AKI is a risk factor for mortality in pediatric severe malaria with a stepwise increase in mortality across AKI stages. AKI is also a risk factor for post-d...

Clinical Profile and Short-Term Outcomes of Acute Kidney Injury in Patients Admitted to a Teaching Hospital in Ethiopia: A Prospective Study
CONCLUSION: Hypovolemia and infections were the primary causes of AKI. Complications, prolonged length of hospital stay, persistent AKI, and rehospitalization were poor short-term outcomes of AKI. Early diagnosis and timely management of AKI particularly in high-risk hospitalized patients, and post-AKI care including management of comorbidities for AKI survivors should improve these poor short-term outcomes.PMID:34239318 | PMC:PMC8259934 | DOI:10.2147/IJNRD.S318037 (Source: International Journal of Nephrology and Renovascular Disease)
