A BLOOD PRESSURE regulating system of interacting components that include RENIN; ANGIOTENSINOGEN; ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME; ANGIOTENSIN I; ANGIOTENSIN II; and angiotensinase. Renin, an enzyme produced in the kidney, acts on angiotensinogen, an alpha-2 globulin produced by the liver, forming ANGIOTENSIN I. Angiotensin-converting enzyme, contained in the lung, acts on angiotensin I in the plasma converting it to ANGIOTENSIN II, an extremely powerful vasoconstrictor. Angiotensin II causes contraction of the arteriolar and renal VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE, leading to retention of salt and water in the KIDNEY and increased arterial blood pressure. In addition, angiotensin II stimulates the release of ALDOSTERONE from the ADRENAL CORTEX, which in turn also increases salt and water retention in the kidney. Angiotensin-converting enzyme also breaks down BRADYKININ, a powerful vasodilator and component of the KALLIKREIN-KININ SYSTEM.

RNA sequences that serve as templates for protein synthesis. Bacterial mRNAs are generally primary transcripts in that they do not require post-transcriptional processing. Eukaryotic mRNA is synthesized in the nucleus and must be exported to the cytoplasm for translation. Most eukaryotic mRNAs have a sequence of polyadenylic acid at the 3' end, referred to as the poly(A) tail. The function of this tail is not known for certain, but it may play a role in the export of mature mRNA from the nucleus as well as in helping stabilize some mRNA molecules by retarding their degradation in the cytoplasm.

Suppression subtractive hybridization identifies high glucose levels as a stimulus for expression of connective tissue growth factor and other genes in human mesangial cells. (1/3158)

Accumulation of mesangial matrix is a pivotal event in the pathophysiology of diabetic nephropathy. The molecular triggers for matrix production are still being defined. Here, suppression subtractive hybridization identified 15 genes differentially induced when primary human mesangial cells are exposed to high glucose (30 mM versus 5 mM) in vitro. These genes included (a) known regulators of mesangial cell activation in diabetic nephropathy (fibronectin, caldesmon, thrombospondin, and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1), (b) novel genes, and (c) known genes whose induction by high glucose has not been reported. Prominent among the latter were genes encoding cytoskeleton-associated proteins and connective tissue growth factor (CTGF), a modulator of fibroblast matrix production. In parallel experiments, elevated CTGF mRNA levels were demonstrated in glomeruli of rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetic nephropathy. Mannitol provoked less mesangial cell CTGF expression in vitro than high glucose, excluding hyperosmolality as the key stimulus. The addition of recombinant CTGF to cultured mesangial cells enhanced expression of extracellular matrix proteins. High glucose stimulated expression of transforming growth factor beta1 (TGF-beta1), and addition of TGF-beta1 to mesangial cells triggered CTGF expression. CTGF expression induced by high glucose was partially suppressed by anti-TGF-beta1 antibody and by the protein kinase C inhibitor GF 109203X. Together, these data suggest that 1) high glucose stimulates mesangial CTGF expression by TGFbeta1-dependent and protein kinase C dependent pathways, and 2) CTGF may be a mediator of TGFbeta1-driven matrix production within a diabetic milieu.  (+info)

Effect of diabetes and aminoguanidine therapy on renal advanced glycation end-product binding. (2/3158)

BACKGROUND: Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy, and aminoguanidine (AG) has been shown to decrease the accumulation of AGEs in the diabetic kidney. METHODS: This study investigates changes in AGE binding associated with diabetes in the rat kidney using in vitro and in vivo autoradiographic techniques. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomized into control and diabetic groups with and without AG treatment and were sacrificed after three weeks. Frozen kidney sections (20 microm) were incubated with [125I]-AGE-RNase or [125I]-AGE-BSA. To localize the AGE binding site, in vivo autoradiography was performed by injection of 15 microCi of [125I]-AGE-BSA into the abdominal aorta of the rat. RESULTS: Low-affinity binding sites specific for AGEs in the renal cortex (IC50 = 0.28 microm) were detected by in vitro autoradiography. There was a significant increase in [125I]-AGE binding in the diabetic kidney, which was prevented by AG treatment. Emulsion autoradiography revealed that binding was localized primarily to proximal tubules in the renal cortex. Renal AGE levels, as assessed by fluorescence or by radioimmunoassay, were increased after three weeks of diabetes. This increase was attenuated by AG therapy. CONCLUSIONS: AGE binding sites are present within the proximal tubules of the kidney and appear to be modulated by endogenous AGE levels. It remains to be determined if these binding sites represent receptors involved in clearance of AGEs or are linked to pathogenic pathways that lead to the development of diabetic nephropathy.  (+info)

Glomerular size-selective dysfunction in NIDDM is not ameliorated by ACE inhibition or by calcium channel blockade. (3/3158)

BACKGROUND: In patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and overt nephropathy glomerular barrier size-selectivity progressively deteriorates with time and is effectively improved by angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition. Whether similar glomerular functional changes develop in proteinuric patients with non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), and whether antihypertensive agents can favorably affect glomerular filtration of macromolecules in these patients, has not been documented yet. METHODS: We investigated renal hemodynamics and fractional clearance of neutral dextrans of graded sizes, in nine proteinuric patients with NIDDM and renal biopsy findings of typical diabetic glomerulopathy. Six healthy volunteers served as controls. We also investigated the effects of an ACE inhibitor and of a calcium channel blocker, both given in doses targeted to achieve a comparable level of systemic blood pressure control, on glomerular hemodynamics and sieving function. Theoretical analysis of glomerular macromolecule transport was adopted to evaluate intrinsic glomerular membrane permeability properties. RESULTS: Fractional clearance of large macromolecules (42 to 66 A in radius) was significantly higher in diabetic patients than in controls, and the distribution of membrane pore radii was calculated to be shifted towards larger pore sizes in diabetics (mean radius increased from 55 to 60 A). Despite effective blood pressure control, neither antihypertensive affected glomerular hemodynamics to any significant extent. Fractional clearance of dextrans, as well as of albumin and IgG, and total urinary proteins were not modified by either treatments. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that patients with NIDDM and overt nephropathy develop abnormalities in size-selective function of the glomerular barrier and, at variance to IDDM, such changes were not ameliorated either by ACE inhibition or calcium channel blockade.  (+info)

Serum levels of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D, and 25-hydroxyvitamin D in nondialyzed patients with chronic renal failure. (4/3158)

BACKGROUND: In patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), abnormalities in vitamin D metabolism are known to be present, and several factors could contribute to the abnormalities. METHODS: We measured serum levels of three vitamin D metabolites, 1,25(OH)2D, 24, 25(OH)2D and 25(OH)D, and analyzed factors affecting their levels in 76 nondialyzed patients with CRF (serum creatinine> 1.6 and < 9.0 mg/dl), 37 of whom had diabetes mellitus (DM-CRF) and 39 of whom were nondiabetic (nonDM-CRF). RESULTS: Serum levels of 1,25(OH)2D were positively correlated with estimated creatinine clearance (CCr; r = 0.429; P < 0.0001), and levels of 24,25(OH)2D were weakly correlated with CCr (r = 0.252, P < 0.05); no correlation was noted for 25(OH)D. Serum levels of all three vitamin D metabolites were significantly and positively correlated with serum albumin. Although there were no significant differences in age, sex, estimated CCr, calcium and phosphate between DM-CRF and nonDM-CRF, all three vitamin D metabolites were significantly lower in DM-CRF than in nonDM-CRF. To analyze factors influencing vitamin D metabolite levels, we performed multiple regression analyses. Serum 25(OH)D levels were significantly and independently associated with serum albumin, presence of DM and serum phosphate (R2 = 0.599; P < 0.0001). 24,25(OH)2D levels were significantly and strongly associated with 25(OH)D (beta = 0.772; R2 = 0.446; P < 0.0001). Serum 1,25(OH)2D levels were significantly associated only with estimated CCr (R2 = 0. 409; P < 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that hypoalbuminemia and the presence of DM independently affect serum 25(OH)D levels, probably via diabetic nephropathy and poor nutritional status associated with diabetes, and that 25(OH)D is actively catalyzed to 24,25(OH)2D in CRF, probably largely via extrarenal 24-hydroxylase. Serum levels of 1,25(OH)2D were significantly affected by the degree of renal failure. Thus, this study indicates that patients with CRF, particularly those with DM, should receive supplements containing the active form of vitamin D prior to dialysis.  (+info)

Septicemia in dialysis patients: incidence, risk factors, and prognosis. (5/3158)

BACKGROUND: Infection is second to cardiovascular disease as a cause of death in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and septicemia causes a majority of these infectious deaths. To identify patients at high risk and to characterize modifiable risk factors for septicemia, we examined the incidence, risk factors, and prognosis for septicemia in a large, representative group of U.S. dialysis patients. METHODS: We conducted a longitudinal cohort study of incident ESRD patients in the case-mix study of the U.S. Renal Data System with seven years of follow-up from hospitalization and death records. Poisson regression was used to examine independent risk factors for hospital-managed septicemia. Cox proportional hazards analysis was used to assess the independent effect of septicemia on all-cause mortality and on death from septicemia. Separate analyses were performed for patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD). RESULTS: Over seven years of follow-up, 11.7% of 4005 HD patients and 9.4% of 913 PD patients had at least one episode of septicemia. Older age and diabetes were independent risk factors for septicemia in all patients. Among HD patients, low serum albumin, temporary vascular access, and dialyzer reuse were also associated with increased risk. Among PD patients, white race and having no health insurance at dialysis initiation were also risk factors. Patients with septicemia had twice the risk of death from any cause and a fivefold to ninefold increased risk of death from septicemia. CONCLUSIONS: Septicemia, which carries a marked increased risk of death, occurs frequently in patients on PD as well as HD. Early referral to a nephrologist, improving nutrition, and avoiding temporary vascular access may decrease the incidence of septicemia. Further study of how race, insurance status, and dialyzer reuse can contribute to the risk of septicemia among ESRD patients is indicated.  (+info)

Genetic determinants of diabetic nephropathy. (6/3158)

Diabetic nephropathy is the most serious complication of diabetes mellitus. Progression of the condition leads to end-stage renal failure, and other complications of diabetes are also common in this group of patients. The onset of overt albuminuria in a patient with diabetes heralds an increased risk of death, particularly from cardiovascular disease. There is considerable evidence to show that nephropathy is influenced by genetic factors. Epidemiological studies show that only a minority of patients with diabetes develop nephropathy irrespective of glycaemic control, suggesting that a subgroup of patients are at higher risk of nephropathy. Marked ethnic variation is observed, with nephropathy being more common in certain ethnic groups. Familial clustering of nephropathy is also observed. Parental history of hypertension, diabetes or cardiovascular disease appears to predispose to nephropathy in patients with diabetes. A number of methods are available to dissect polygenic disease: animal models, genetic association studies (case-control studies), affected sib-pair studies, discordant sib-pair studies and transmission distortion analysis. Most published work has been based on association studies. Association studies have shown conflicting results often due to small numbers of cases and controls, and poor phenotypic characterization. The angiotensin-converting enzyme gene insertion (I)/deletion (D) polymorphism has been studied in detail, but does not appear to be a strong risk marker for nephropathy. It does, however, appear to have a role in response to angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition, with II homozygotes being the most responsive and DD homozygotes the least. A number of other genetic loci have also shown positive associations with nephropathy, including apolipoprotein E, heparan sulphate and aldose reductase. More recently, affected sib-pair analysis and discordant sib-pair analysis have suggested possible genetic loci on chromosomes 3, 7, 9, 12 and 20. These have yet to be reproduced in larger numbers of families, and the specific gene regions on these chromosomes remain elusive. The evidence presented in this review strongly supports the role of genetic factors in nephropathy. Detection of strong genetic risk markers for nephropathy will allow further insights into the pathogenesis of nephropathy, and possibly the development of novel therapeutic agents for its treatment. It will also allow preventive therapy to be directed at those patients with the greatest risk for development of diabetic nephropathy.  (+info)

Incidence of analgesic nephropathy in Berlin since 1983. (7/3158)

BACKGROUND: Phenacetin was removed from the German market in 1986 and was replaced mainly in analgesic compounds by acetaminophen. Our objective was to examine the effect of this measure on the incidence of analgesic nephropathy in light of the changes in other end-stage renal diseases. METHODS: We therefore compared the proportion of renal diseases in all patients starting dialysis treatment during three 18-month periods: 4/1982-9/1983 (n=57); 1/1991-6/1992 (n=81); and 10/1995-3/1997 (n=76). RESULTS: On the one hand, the proportion of end-stage analgesic nephropathy decreased significantly from 30% in 1981-1982 to 21% in 1991-1992 and 12% in 1995-1997 (P=0.01). On the other hand, type II diabetes increased significantly from 7% to 22% (P=0.01) and 29%, (P=0.001). Using the chi2 distribution test to analyze the frequencies of seven diseases at three different time intervals, however, showed that the changes in renal-disease proportions between 1982-1983, 1991-1992 and 1995-1997 were not significantly independent. There was a significant median age increase from 52 years (CI0.95 44-58) in 1982-1983 to 63 (CI0.95 55-67) in 1991-1992 and 63 (CI0.95 60-66) in 1995-1997 (P=0.003) for all patients starting dialysis but not for those with analgesic nephropathy [59 (55-71) vs 64 (53-67) and 61 (50-72); n.s.]. CONCLUSION: The decrease of end-stage analgesic nephropathy since 1983 may be partially due to the removal of phenacetin from the German market in 1986. However, considering the general increase in numbers of dialysis patients, their higher age and the increased incidence of type II diabetes, the decrease in analgesic nephropathy is not a statistically significant independent variable. Altered admittance policies for dialysis treatment have yielded a new pattern of renal-disease proportion which interferes with changes in the incidence of analgesic nephropathy.  (+info)

The Janus-faced aspect of 'dry weight'. (8/3158)

BACKGROUND: The goal of haemodialysis treatment in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients is to correct the complications of the uraemic condition. Among the main complications are fluid overload and subsequent hypertension that are corrected by achievement of 'dry weight'. We report in this study the evolution of post-dialysis body-weight and blood pressure in patients who began their HD treatment in our unit. METHODS: We studied the monthly evolution of post-dialysis body-weight (expressed as a percentage of pre-dialysis body-weight at the first HD treatment) and predialysis mean arterial pressure (MAP) over 24 months in 61 patients (21 females, mean age 59.8 years; 20% diabetic), treated with cellulosic membranes for 8 h, 3 times a week. RESULTS: The post-dialysis body-weight decreased between the onset of HD and month 2 (M2) (-4.40+/-0.52%). Then it went up, reaching -1.56+/-0.96% at M6, +0.3+/-1.27% at M12, +1.27+/-1.38% at M18 and +1.64+/-1.33% at M24. The post-dialysis body-weight increased by 6% between M2 and M24. The mean arterial pressure (MAP) decreased from 111.3+/-2.5 mmHg at M0 to 94.4+/-1.7 at M6, and then remained stable after M6. Between M2 and M6 the post-dialysis body-weight increased, whereas the predialysis MAP continued to decline. The incidence of hypotension episodes was maximal during the first 4 months of HD treatment. CONCLUSIONS: After the second month of dialysis treatment, the simultaneous increase of post-dialysis body-weight and decrease of pre-dialysis MAP are related to the effects of two processes, i.e. increased weight as the result of anabolism induced by the HD treatment on the one hand and normalization of blood pressure by fluid removal on the other. Continuous clinical assessment of the patient is necessary to provide adequate prescription of post-dialysis body-weight. During the first months of HD treatment, the nephrologist, like Janus, is a double-faced gatekeeper: he must be willing to decrease post-dialysis weight to achieve 'dry weight' and to normalize blood pressure, but he must also be prepared to increase it to compensate for anabolism and to avoid episodes of hypotension.  (+info)

Some Diabetic Nephropathy patients consider vegetarian diet is a better diet for them. Other patients think that so long as they do not eat meat, milchigs or eggs, it will be ok. However, they neglect that vegetarian diet also contains vegetable protein. If they take vegetarian diet for a long term, it will aggravate burden to kidney. Because vegetable protein contains much of unnecessary amino acid, it cannt meet the need of body and will be metabolized into masses of nitrogen products. Diabetic Nephropathy patients have a poor renal function and it can not well discharge excess water and waste products, so patients should take high-quality protein diet to meet the need of the body without producing masses of nitrogen products ...

With the improvement of life quality, more and more people get diabetes. After years of diabetes, you may find that your creatinine level increases gradually. How to reduce creatinine 4 for Diabetic Nephropathy patients? In Shijiazhuang Kid
Diabetic kidney disease is increasing in prevalence and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Health disparities exist in the progression of diabetic kidney disease, with minorities being more affected even when adjusting for treatment, glycemic and hypertensive control, and medical coverage. Secondary prevention of the progression of diabetic kidney disease is hindered by a lack of easily modifiable risk factors. Based on animal and observational human studies, vitamin D deficiency is potentially a novel, modifiable risk factor that may interrupt or delay the progression of diabetic kidney disease through direct effects as well as by helping to ameliorate kidney disease risk factors, such as hyperglycemia, hypertension and inflammation. In addition, based on minorities having a higher prevalence of vitamin D deficiency, it may also potentially impact the differential progression of diabetic kidney disease in minorities. However, clinical trials evaluating the impact of vitamin ...

Y1 - 1992/12/1. N2 - Characteristic pathological changes in the glomeruli in diabetic nephropathy include expansion of the mesangial matrix and thickening of the glomerular basement membrane (GBM). Using an acellular digestion technique combined with scanning electron microscopy, the three-dimensional ultrastructural changes in glomerular extracellular matrices were studied in rats with diabetic glomerulopathy. Diabetes was induced by the intravenous injection of streptozotocin and morphological analyses were performed 3, 6 and 11 months after the injection. Expansion of mesangial area and GBM thickening became evident with time. After treatment with the series of detergents, all cellular components were completely removed leaving the extracellular matrices intact. In normal controls, the mesangial ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Diabetic kidney disease in children and adolescents. AU - Afkarian, Maryam. PY - 2015/1/1. Y1 - 2015/1/1. N2 - Diabetes, more frequently type 1, but increasingly also type 2, commonly occurs in childhood. While more advanced diabetic kidney disease (DKD), e.g., loss of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), does not occur until adulthood, kidney biopsies show DKD structural changes as early as 1.5-5 years after the onset of type 1 diabetes. Earliest clinical sign of DKD, increased urine albumin excretion, commonly appears during childhood and adolescence and presents an important opportunity to detect and intervene in early DKD, perhaps more successfully than later in the disease course. Longitudinal studies of type 1 diabetes have enriched our understanding of the DKD natural history and modifiable risk factors for DKD progression. These studies have also shown that the presence of DKD marks a subset of people with diabetes who are at the highest risk of early mortality, supporting ...
A prospective, randomised, double-blind, multicentric and comparative study to investigate, on a long-term basis, the preventive effect on the transition to overt nephropathy and the safety of Telmisartan (Micardis) against placebo in patients with diabetic nephropathy, manifesting microalbuminuria associated with type II diabetes.. Study Hypothesis:. The hypothesis is that Telmisartan (Micardis) at 40 mg or 80 mg versus placebo control in patients with concurrent type II diabetic mellitus or diabetic nephropathy demonstrating microalbuminuria, has the preventive effect on transition from incipient to overt nephropathy.. Comparison(s):. The primary endpoint is defined as the transition from incipient to overt nephropathy, and the non-transition curve will be demonstrated based on the Kaplan-Meier method. The evaluation criteria for the point to transition to overt nephropathy is defined as urinary albumin to creatinine ratios at consecutive 2 measuring points increasing over 300 mg/g-Creatinine ...
Is it reversible for patients with Early Diabetic Nephropathy? Diabetic Nephropathy is the most serious disease in kidney problems. It has so many common complications, so people need to pay attention to it in daily life.
Kanauchi et al. (1998) communicated a rare divergent case (diabetic nephropathy without a concomitant retinopathy) in 5 male patients whose mean age was 61 ± 4 years old and whose mean duration of diabetes was 10.8 ± 2 years. Those authors reported an unsatisfactory control of the diabetes syndrome (glycosilated hemoglobin = 8 ± 1.2 %) in the studied patients, absence of retinopathy and biochemical and histopathological data revealing an advanced diabetic nephropathy. In this regard, they biochemically demonstrated high total urinary protein excretion (3920 ± 295 mg / 24 h); high serum creatinine (2.6 ± 2.07 mg/dl) and altered glomerular filtration rate in accordance with the clearance of creatinine (59 ± 13 ml / min). From an anatomopathological standpoint, Kanauchi et al. found diffuse glomerular lesions with and without nodular lesions as well as advanced arteriolar hyalinosis affecting glomerular arterioles. Taking into account our results and although a straight comparison among data ...
Researchers at the University of California-San Diego School of Medicine, the National Institutes of Health and the Mayo Clinic found that pirfenidone potentially could treat diabetic nephropathy, a leading cause of end-stage kidney disease.. The researchers conducted a randomized, double-blind study of 77 patients with diabetic nephropathy at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Philadelphia, the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and the NIH. The study comprised three groups: one group that received a high dose of pirfenidone (2,400 mg), one group that received a low dose of pirfenidone (1,200 mg) and one control group.. After analyzing the rate of decline in kidney function in the three groups - which was measured by the estimated glomerular filtration rate - the study authors found a significant improvement in the low-dose group over the course of the one-year study. Additionally, no seeming benefit was noted in those patients who received the high dose, suggesting that higher doses may not be tolerable in ...
Data from randomized controlled trials of treatment of early diabetic nephropathy with ACE-inhibitors have shown that ACE-inhibitors and ARBs should be considered as standard therapy for both type 1 and type 2 diabetic nephropathy. In a small randomized controlled trial of type 1 diabetic patients, Mathiesen et al. showed that treatment with captopril (25-100mg/d) versus placebo decreased the progression of diabetic nephropathy by 30%. In addition, researchers from the Collaborative Study Group showed that use of captopril reduced the risk of doubling of serum creatinine by 43% (p=0.014) and decreased the risk of progression of diabetic nephropathy to dialysis, transplantation, or death in 46% (p=0.021) of type 1 patients.To evaluate whether ACE inhibitors could decrease the rate of development of diabetic nephropathy in normotensive type 1 patients, researchers from the Eurodiab Controlled Trial of Lisinopril in Insulin Dependent Diabetes (EUCLID) study showed that lisinopril (10-20mg) resulted ...
Diabetic nephropathy is characterized by damage to both the glomerulus and tubulointerstitium, but relatively little is known about accompanying cell-specific changes in gene expression. We performed unbiased single-nucleus RNA sequencing (snRNA-seq) on cryopreserved human diabetic kidney samples to generate 23,980 single-nucleus transcriptomes from 3 control and 3 early diabetic nephropathy samples. All major cell types of the kidney were represented in the final dataset. Side-by-side comparison demonstrated cell-type-specific changes in gene expression that are important for ion transport, angiogenesis, and immune cell activation. In particular, we show that the diabetic thick ascending limb, late distal convoluted tubule, and principal cells all adopt a gene expression signature consistent with increased potassium secretion, including alterations in Na+/K+-ATPase, WNK1, mineralocorticoid receptor, and NEDD4L expression, as well as decreased paracellular calcium and magnesium reabsorption. We ...

Diabetic kidney disease is the leading cause of end-stage renal disease in developed and developing countries. Microalbuminuria is the gold standard for detection and prediction of diabetic kidney disease and cardiovascular risk disease in clinical practice. However, microalbuminuria has several limitations, such as lower sensitive, larger variability. It is urgent to explore higher sensitivity and specificity for earlier detection of diabetic kidney disease and more accurate prediction of the progression to end stage renal disease. We reviewed some new and important urinary biomarkers, such as: transferrin, immunoglobulin G, immunoglobulin M, Cystanic C, podocytes, type IV collagen, 8-oxo-7, 8-dihydro-2-deoxyguanosine, ceruloplasmin, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 and so on. We need good quality, long-term, large longitudinal trials to validate published biomarkers and find new biomarkers, considering biomarkers reviewed here are from small cross-sectional studies.
The Diabetic Nephropathy can obtain many notice about this disease. It contains the prevent in early phase, the therapies during the treatment and the
In our cross-sectional study in micro- and macroalbuminuric type 2 diabetic patients we demonstrated that simple and rapid estimation of GFR using either the MDRD equation for determination of GFR or the Cockcroft-Gault formula for creatinine clearance (adjusted for BSA) correlated with GFR determined by 51Cr-EDTA plasma clearance in the range from 20 to 178 ml · min−1 per 1.73 m2. This is the first study to evaluate this specifically in microalbuminuric diabetic patients. Despite the correlation, the estimates significantly underestimated GFR in both micro- and macroalbuminuric patients, with increasing underestimation with increasing values (lack of accuracy) and as reflected by the wide limits of agreement. There was also lack of precision for both estimates. The underestimation was larger in microalbuminuric compared with macroalbuminuric patients. Furthermore, the sensitivity to detect impaired renal function (GFR ,60 ml · min−1 per 1.73 m2) was only 72% for the MDRD estimate and 66% ...

In our study, experimental induction of diabetes mellitus resulted in diabetic nephropathy, which was assessed by measuring 24hrs. Urinary albumin excretion, serum creatinine, and serum urea on the 12 th week of the experiment. It was noted that there was a significant increase in urinary albumin excretion, serum creatinine, and serum urea noted in rats after STZ administration. This is in agreement with Mianzhi et al. (2012). Various factors are involved in the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy. It is believed that hyperglycemia induces a defect in the mitochondrial electron transport chain, resulting in increased production of reactive oxygen species and increased oxidative stress. This is a common mediator of the pathophysiological effects of hyperglycemia and subsequent diabetic nephropathy [41]. The increased oxidative stress activates glycation and formation of advanced glycation end products with the formation of cytokines and growth factors [42]. Also increased angiotensin II plays an ...
The underlying mechanisms in the development of diabetic nephropathy are currently unclear and likely consist of a series of dynamic events from the early to late stages of the disease. Diabetic nephropathy is currently without curative treatments and it is acknowledged that even the earliest clinical manifestation of nephropathy is preceded by an established morphological renal injury that is in turn preceded by functional and metabolic alterations. An early manifestation of the diabetic kidney is the development of kidney hypoxia that has been acknowledged as a common pathway to nephropathy.There have been reports of altered mitochondrial function in the diabetic kidney such as altered mitophagy, mitochondrial dynamics, uncoupling and cellular signaling through hypoxia inducible factors and AMP-kinase. These factors are also likely to be intertwined in a complex manner. In this review we discuss how these pathways are connected to mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and how they
Proteinuria and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors are independently associated with a significant 6-fold increased odds for anemia in patients with diabetic nephropathy.
The growing economic burden of hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and ESRD has been well documented. Although prior studies acknowledge chronic kidney disease as one of the major contributors to that burden, the definitions of renal disease are typically ill defined (1,3,10). In this retrospective cohort study of 7,758 patients with diabetes and hypertension, we used the stages of diabetic nephropathy defined by the ADA to benchmark medical care costs of hypertensive diabetic patients and quantified the increasingly higher costs observed across these stages. In addition, whereas previous studies have estimated costs of prevalent nephropathy (2,3), we used our longitudinal data to demonstrate that the medical costs associated with the progression of diabetic nephropathy are substantial even among patients progressing from normoalbuminuria to microalbuminuria, one of the earliest indicators of kidney damage. To our knowledge, ours is the first study to evaluate costs of progression of nephropathy and ...

Diabetes has become the main public health challenge for the 21st century. Pronounced changes in the human environment and in human behavior and lifestyle, have accompanied globalization, and these have resulted in escalating rates of diabetes. Microalbuminuria is considered as a clinically important indicator of deteriorating renal function in diabetic patients. Microalbuminuria is the strong predictor of diabetic nephropathy, which is the main cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with diabetes mellitus. It is also characterized by increased prevalence of arterial hypertension, proliferative retinopathy, and peripheral neuropathy. Detection of microalbuminuria is an indication for initiation of appropriate therapy for the purpose of preventing the advance of progressive diabetic nephropathy. Diabetic kidney disease or nephropathy is the most common cause of end stage renal disease (ESRD) or kidney failure. One of the early markers of not only diabetic nephropathy, but also vascular disease

N2 - Purpose of Review: The goal of this review is to present an overview of the evidence on the effectiveness of plant-based diets in delaying progression of diabetic kidney disease (DKD). Recent Findings: The ideal quantity of dietary protein has been a controversial topic for patients with DKD. Smaller studies have focused on protein source, plant versus animal, for preventing progression. Limited evidence suggests that dietary patterns that focus on plant-based foods, those that are lower in processed foods, or those that are lower in advanced glycation end products (AGE) may be useful in prevention of DKD progression. Summary: Increasing plant-based foods, incorporating diet patterns that limit processed foods, or potentially lowering AGE contents in diets may be beneficial for dietary management of ...
Diabetic nephropathy is a leading cause of end-stage renal disease in Japan. Microalbuminuria has been considered as the first clinical sign of diabetic nephropathy. However, recent studies demonstrated that normoalbuminuric renal insufficiency is not uncommon for diabetic patients, especially in type 2 diabetes. Although the pathogenesis of normoalbuminuric renal insufficiency in diabetic nephropathy remains to be fully elucidated, distinct clinical and pathological features of diabetic patients with this finding have been reported as compared to those in diabetic patients with a typical clinical course. In type 1 diabetes, more advanced glomerular lesions were found in patients with normoalbuminuric renal insufficiency than in patients with normoalbuminuric preserved renal function. In contrast, disproportionately advanced tubulointerstitial and vascular lesions, despite minor diabetic glomerular lesions, which denote the presence of diabetic kidney lesions as well as nephrosclerosis, were ...

Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) is a major microvascular complication of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) [1]. However, in type 1 diabetics, DKD typically does not present until the second decade after diagnosis of diabetes, whereas in some type 2 diabetics, DKD is already evident at the time of diagnosis of diabetes because of other chronic instigators of kidney injury such as aging, hypertension, and abnormal lipid levels [2, 3]. In China, DKD is the second leading cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) after glomerulonephropathy [4] and is a leading cause of dialysis in developed countries such as Japan and the USA [5, 6]. The economic burden of DKD is substantial [7, 8]. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have been the agents of choice in slowing the progression of DKD. However, as seemingly effective as they are, these drugs have side effects such as rhinitis, persistent cough, and angioedema, which cause patients to ...

Mechanisms underlying the progression of diabetic kidney disease to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) are not fully understood. We performed global micro-RNA (miRNA) analysis in plasma in two cohorts encompassing 375 individuals with type 1 and type 2 diabetes with late diabetic kidney disease and targeted proteomics analysis in plasma in four cohorts encompassing 746 individuals with late and early diabetic kidney disease. We examined structural lesions in kidney biopsies from the 105 individuals with early diabetic kidney disease. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells were used to assess the effects of miRNA mimics or inhibitors on regulation of candidate proteins. In the late diabetic kidney disease cohorts, we identified 17 circulating miRNAs represented by four exemplars (miR-1287-5p, miR-197-5p, miR-339-5p, miR-328-3p), which were strongly associated with 10-year risk of ESKD. These miRNAs targeted proteins in the axon guidance pathway. Circulating levels of six of these proteins-most ...

We microdissected glomerular and tubulointerstitial examples from kidney biopsies of sufferers with diabetic kidney disease and discovered appearance of IL-1 mRNA. Immunostaining of such kidney biopsies across a wide spectral range of diabetic kidney disease levels uncovered IL-1 positivity in a little subset of infiltrating immune system cell. Hence, we speculated on the potential of IL-1 being a healing focus on and neutralizing the natural ramifications of murine IL-1 using a book monoclonal antibody in uninephrectomized diabetic db/db mice with intensifying type 2 diabetes- and obesity-related one nephron hyperfiltration, podocyte reduction, proteinuria, and intensifying drop of total glomerular purification price (GFR).

Human pTECs are not only passive bystanders in the development of diabetic nephropathy, but they also respond actively to hyperglycemia and AGEs by inducing NF-κB activation and NF-κB-dependent gene expression in vitro and in vivo. One defined AGE generated by lipoxidation and glycoxidation in diabetic nephropathy is CML (44,52,61,70,114). The presence of CML-modified proteins in the urine of type 2 diabetic patients and the in vitro observation that CML is a potent inducer of sustained NF-κB activation in pTECs suggest that CML might play a role in the development of diabetes renal complications. In addition, the observation that type 2 diabetic patients demonstrated excretion of tubular cells that was positive for activated NF-κBp65 and IL-6 antigen implies that the AGE/CML-RAGE-mediated NF-κB activation is functionally significant.. Indirect evidence for the role of NF-κB activation in diabetic nephropathy has already been given from clinical studies in which an increase in oxidative ...

AU - Najafian, Behzad. PY - 2015/6/1. Y1 - 2015/6/1. N2 - Studies of structural-functional relationships have improved understanding of the natural history of diabetic nephropathy (DN). However, in order to consider structural end points for clinical trials, the robustness of the resultant models needs to be verified. This study examined whether structural-functional relationship models derived from a large cohort of type 1 diabetic (T1D) patients with a wide range of renal function are robust. The predictability of models derived from multiple regression analysis and piecewise linear regression analysis was also compared. T1D patients (n = 161) with research renal biopsies were divided into two equal groups matched for albumin excretion rate (AER). Models to explain AER and glomerular filtration rate ...
Purpose : To analyze the effects of systemic and ocular profiles on choroidal vascularity index (CVI) in treatment-naïve (naïve) eyes with advanced diabetic retinopathy (DR). Methods : This study included the patients with naïve DR who did not receive any treatment and underwent routine laboratory evaluations, including complete blood cell count, admission battery, stat battery, and urinalysis. Systemic and ocular factors associated with the change in CVI in eyes with DR were analyzed using univariate and multivariate regression analyses. Results : A total of 228 eyes from 138 patients with diabetes, and 33 eyes from 25 age-matched healthy controls, were recruited. The eyes with naïve proliferative DR (0.673 ± 0.022) or severe non-proliferative DR (0.667 ± 0.033) had higher CVI than did eyes with mild-to-moderate non-proliferative DR (0.653 ± 0.037) or normal controls (0.652 ± 0.024). Univariate and multivariate regression analyses showed that the CVI in naïve eyes with DR was ...

We show here that increasing VEGF-A165b levels effectively improves several functional and histologic features of diabetic nephropathy. It can do so locally (through podocyte-specific overexpression) and systemically (via repeated intraperitoneal injections). It can do so in the context of additional upregulation of VEGF-A164a and in nephropathy-complicating models of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and it can do so both before and after the onset of albuminuria. We further demonstrate that VEGF-A165b acts on glomerular permeability through VEGFR-2 in glomerular endothelial cells and reverses diabetes-induced damage to the glomerular endothelial glycocalyx. We also demonstrate changes in the balance of VEGF-Axxxa/VEGF-Axxxb isoforms in human diabetic nephropathy, show that glomerular permeability is increased in diabetic human glomeruli, and show that the direct effects of VEGF-A165b on the glomerular capillary wall observed in animal models of diabetic nephropathy are reproduced at a ...
Author(s): You, Young-Hyun; Quach, Tammy; Saito, Rintaro; Pham, Jessica; Sharma, Kumar | Abstract: The NADPH oxidase (NOX) isoform NOX4 has been linked with diabetic kidney disease (DKD). However, a mechanistic understanding of the downstream effects of NOX4 remains to be established. We report that podocyte-specific induction of NOX4 in vivo was sufficient to recapitulate the characteristic glomerular changes noted with DKD, including glomerular hypertrophy, mesangial matrix accumulation, glomerular basement membrane thickening, albuminuria, and podocyte dropout. Intervention with a NOX1/NOX4 inhibitor reduced albuminuria, glomerular hypertrophy, and mesangial matrix accumulation in the F1 Akita model of DKD. Metabolomic analyses from these mouse studies revealed that tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle-related urinary metabolites were increased in DKD, but fumarate levels were uniquely reduced by the NOX1/NOX4 inhibitor. Expression of fumarate hydratase (FH), which regulates urine fumarate accumulation,
In an attempt to detect patients at high risk of developing diabetic nephropathy, a longitudinal study of urinary albumin excretion rate (radial immunodiffusion) was carried out in 15 female and 8 male long-term insulin-dependent diabetics without proteinuria (negative Albustix test).. Five females and 3 males had an elevated urinary albumin excretion at the time of screening, mean 115 ± 26 (sd) mg/24 h. Our upper normal range for urinary albumin excretion is ≤ 40 mg/24 h. The 5 patients with the highest albumin excretion subsequently developed persistent albuminuria, 132 → 1007 mg/24 h, P , 0.05, elevated serum creatinine, 83 → 128 μmol/l, P , 0.05, and raised blood pressure, 135/86 → 163/112 mmHg, P , 0.05. One patient developed intermittent albuminuria (positive Albustix test), while the variables in the remaining 2 patients were about the same during the 6 years observation period. Fifteen patients had a normal urinary albumin excretion, mean 17 ± 9 (sd) mg/24 h, at the time of ...
摘要In order to identify novel pathways relevant to human Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD), we performed transcriptome profiling of i) biopsy-proven diabetic glomerulosclerosis (N=15); ii) hypertensive glomerulosclerosis (N=12); iii) non-DM nephrectomized kidneys (N=4). Laser microdissection of kidney or biopsy specimens was performed under direct visual control. Approximately 5-10 glomerulus and 20 randomly selected tubulointerstitial areas were isolated from each specimen. Total RNA was extracted from isolated glomeruli and tubulointerstitial tissues, and sequenced using the SMARTer stranded RNA-Seq kit with Ribo Zero treatment and Novaseq6000, generating 32∼111 million 101 bp paired-end reads per sample. Overall, there was significant overlap between differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in both glomeruli and tubulointerstitial areas from diabetic glomerulosclerosis and hypertensive glomerulosclerosis. We identified 524 genes which showed significant increased gene expression in glomeruli in ...
A large number of studies have documented the evidence that progression of diabetes leads to various secondary diabetic complications among which nephropathy is a serious complication with an increasing prevalence worldwide [22]. The nephropathy disease is characterized by morphological and ultra structural changes in the kidney including expansion of the molecular matrix. Even though, the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy is complex and still not fully elucidated, few biochemical changes such as increase in polyol pathway flux, increased AGEs formation, have been actively studied for their role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Increased matrix proteins leading to decreased GFR is considered as a marker for the progression of the Diabetic nephropathy disease. Elevation of serum creatinine levels and BUN in diabetic rats is used as an index of altered GFR in diabetic nephropathy [23].. Results of the present study have corroborated with the previous reports in which administration ...

This study tested the hypothesis that nitric oxide (NO)-mediated renal vasodilation due to the activity of the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) contributes to glomerular hyperfiltration in diabetic rats. Two weeks after induction of diabetes mellitus by streptozotocin, mean arterial BP (MAP), GFR (inulin clearance), and renal plasma flow (RPF) (para-aminohippurate clearance) were measured in conscious instrumented rats. Diabetic rats had elevated GFR (3129 +/- 309 microl/min versus 2297 +/- 264 microl/min in untreated control rats, P , 0.05) and RPF (10526 +/- 679 microl/min versus 8005 +/- 534 microl/min), which was prevented by chronic insulin treatment. Intravenous administration of 0.1 and 1 mg of L-imino-ethyl-lysine (L-NIL), an inhibitor of iNOS, did not affect MAP, GFR, or RPF, either in diabetic or control rats. A higher L-NIL dose (10 mg) increased MAP and decreased RPF in diabetic rats significantly (n = 6, P , 0.05), but not in controls (n = 6). In addition, 0.1 mg of ...

Diabetes is the leading cause of ESRD because diabetic nephropathy develops in 30 to 40% of patients. Diabetic nephropathy does not develop in the absence of hyperglycemia, even in the presence of a genetic predisposition. Multigenetic predisposition contributes in the development of diabetic nephropathy, thus supporting that many factors are involved in the pathogenesis of the disease. Hyperglycemia induces renal damage directly or through hemodynamic modifications. It induces activation of protein kinase C, increased production of advanced glycosylation end products, and diacylglycerol synthesis. In addition, it is responsible for hemodynamic alterations such as glomerular hyperfiltration, shear stress, and microalbuminuria. These alterations contribute to an abnormal stimulation of resident renal cells that produce more TGF-1. This growth factor upregulates GLUT-1, which induces an increased intracellular glucose transport and D-glucose uptake. TGF-1 causes augmented extracellular matrix ...
Diabetic kidney disease (DKD) remains the most common cause of chronic kidney disease and multiple therapeutic agents, primarily targeted at the renin-angiotensin system, have been assessed. Their only partial effectiveness in slowing down progression to end-stage renal disease, points out an evident need for additional effective therapies. In the context of diabetes, endothelin-1 (ET-1) has been implicated in vasoconstriction, renal injury, mesangial proliferation, glomerulosclerosis, fibrosis and inflammation, largely through activation of its endothelin A (ETA) receptor. Therefore, endothelin receptor antagonists have been proposed as potential drug targets. In experimental models of DKD, endothelin receptor antagonists have been described to improve renal injury and fibrosis, whereas clinical trials in DKD patients have shown an antiproteinuric effect. Currently, its renoprotective effect in a long-time clinical trial is being tested. This review focuses on the localization of endothelin receptors
Micro- or macroalbuminuria is associated with increased cardiovascular risk factors among patients with type 2 diabetes, but whether albuminuria within the normal range predicts long-term cardiovascular risk is unknown. We evaluated the relationships between albuminuria and cardiovascular events in 1208 hypertensive, normoalbuminuric patients with type 2 diabetes from the BErgamo NEphrologic Diabetes Complication Trial (BENEDICT), all of whom received angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) therapy at the end of the trial and were followed for a median of 9.2 years. The main outcome was time to the first of fatal or nonfatal myocardial infarction; stroke; coronary, carotid, or peripheral artery revascularization; or hospitalization for heart failure. Overall, 189 (15.6%) of the patients experienced a main outcome event (2.14 events/100 patient-years); 24 events were fatal. Albuminuria independently predicted events (hazard ratio [HR], 1.05; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.02-1.08). ...
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Diabetic kidney disease may worsen quickly despite therapy if patients continue to smoke, new research shows.. The study of 33 type 2 diabetics with kidney disease showed that smokers kidney function declined more rapidly than nonsmokers, despite drug treatment with ACE inhibitors. These drugs, which lower blood pressure, have been shown to slow the progression of diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. But in this study, doctors at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock found that even though ACE inhibitors lowered smokers blood pressure, these patients still saw their kidney function go downhill. Nonsmokers kidney health also declined, but to a lesser degree, according to findings published in the February issue of the American Journal of Kidney Diseases. Treating diabetic nephropathy with improved blood pressure control and ACE inhibitor therapy fails to eradicate the untoward effects of cigarette smoking, conclude Drs. Temduang Chuahirun ...

Perhaps earlier identification of patients who have diabetes and are at high risk for DN could reverse these epidemiologic trends. Albumin excretion rate (AER), the mainstay of early detection of DN, is not a sufficiently precise predictor of DN risk. Careful family history, smoking history, consideration of absolute versus categorical AER values, more frequent AER measures, ambulatory BP monitoring, precise GFR measurements, diabetic retinopathy assessments, and plasma lipid levels all can add to predictive accuracy for DN. Thus, although further research in DN biomarkers and predictors is greatly needed, a careful ...

Diabetic nephropathy is the most common cause of renal failure, accounting for more than half of all cases of end-stage renal disease in the United States. (End-stage renal disease is disease that requires renal replacement with either dialysis treatment or a kidney transplant. Renal disease will affect between 20-40% of diabetics in their lifetime. Diabetic nephropathy involves steadily increasing proteinuria, accompanied by elevated blood pressure, with a progressive decline in GFR. There is also a greatly increased risk of cardiovascular disease.. Proteinuria is both a consequence of the glomerular damage in diabetes mellitus, and a cause of further damage, since it leads to inflammation and fibrosis in the renal tubules and a loss of functional nephrons. A specific assay for the small blood protein albumin is a more sensitive test to determine proteinuria than is a typical urine dipstick test for protein. If high values are measured, this is termed albuminuria. The table below gives values ...

Diabetic nephropathy (diabetic kidney disease) (DN)[1] is the chronic loss of kidney function occurring in those with diabetes mellitus. It is a serious complication, affecting around one-quarter of adult diabetics in the United States. It usually is slowly progressive over years. [2] Pathophysiologic abnormalities in DN begin with long-standing poorly controlled blood glucose levels. This is followed by multiple changes in the filtration units of the kidneys, the nephrons. (There are normally about 3/4-1 1/2 million nephrons in each adult kidney).[3] Initially, there is constriction of the efferent arterioles and dilation of afferent arterioles, with resulting glomerular capillary hypertension and hyperfiltration; this gradually changes to hypofiltration over time.[4] Concurrently, there are changes within the glomerulus itself: these include a thickening of the basement membrane, a widening of the slit membranes of the podocytes, an increase in the number of mesangial cells, and an increase in ...
The major findings of this study are that PTC miR-192 expression is decreased in response to TGF-β and that loss of miR-192 correlates with tubulointerstitial fibrosis and reduction in eGFR in renal biopsies from patients with established diabetic nephropathy. Initial array studies suggested that, in vitro, PTC miR expression profile is highly stable and is not influenced by glucose alone in the short term. Subsequent PCR-based array examination of miR expression in pooled kidney biopsy samples categorized miR expression in patients with established nephropathy. Multiple differences in miR expression were detected between patients who progressively lost renal function after biopsy and those who did not and between those with advanced disease at the time of biopsy and those with earlier stage disease. These data identify miRs for further study and suggest that miR quantification may provide useful prognostic information for patients with diabetic nephropathy. In keeping with this, subsequent ...

While there are many different complications of diabetes, one of the more serious problems can occur when the kidneys cannot properly function due to the disease. This complication is known as diabetic nephropathy, and it is a chronic disease that is most commonly found in people who have had diabetes for at least ten to fifteen years. It is so serious that patients who have been diagnosed with the disease can die within two years of the first appearance of lesions on the kidneys, and it is one of the most common causes for resulting kidney failure and chronic kidney disease in the United States.. In the early stages of diabetic nephropathy there are actually no symptoms. This is because the kidney functions just begin to gradually decrease over time until eventually their ability to process urine is restricted. Therefore, when glucose in the urine goes unchecked, it can create problems that develop in the kidneys, but these are often not seen at all until much later in the diseases ...
Introduction「The shortage of kidney donor has limited the treatment of patients with end-stage kidney disease. To use diabetic donor with normal renal function is would be one of solutions for limited donor pool in deceased kidney transplantation (KTX). However, diabetic donors sometimes have pathological deterioration indicating diabetic nephropathy (DMN) at donation, which has been considered to be irreversible. The aims of this study are to evaluate the feasibility of diabetic donor with DMN and the histological change of DMN after KTX in non-diabetic recipients.. 「Patients and Methods「Five non-diabetic kidney recipients evaluated by oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) were enrolled in this study (Mean age 48.6; Gender M/F, 1/4). These patients underwent KTX from diabetic deceased donor with biopsy proven DMN with normal renal function. The recipients were maintained with tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, methylprednisolone for more than 3 years. We performed protocol biopsy annually ...
It is widely appreciated that macro- and microvascular complications, rather than hyperglycemia per se, are major contributors to morbidity and mortality in diabetes. In this issue of Diabetes, Williams et al. (1) report the results of a meta-analysis of genetic data from three moderately sized studies of patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and nephropathy. This report illustrates several challenges inherent in the genetic analysis of diabetes complications and is another step toward understanding the genetic basis of risk for diabetic nephropathy (DN). Insights into the genetics of DN will potentially lead to improved prediction of DN and novel approaches to prevent this serious complication of diabetes.. There is compelling evidence in support of a major genetic component for diabetes complications, especially DN. Efforts to identify genes contributing to T1D and type 2 diabetes (T2D) have been highly successful, but with few exceptions, there is little evidence that diabetes-associated ...

The syndrome can be seen in patients with chronic diabetes (usually less than 15 years after onset) after about 5 years in type 1 diabetes. Clinical nephropathy secondary to glomerular disease usually manifests 15-25 years after diagnosis of diabetes and affects 25-35% of patients under the age of 30 years. It is the leading cause of premature death in young diabetic patients.(between 50 and 70 years old). The disease is progressive and may cause death two or three years after the initial lesions, and is more frequent in men. Diabetic nephropathy is the most common cause of chronic kidney failure and end-stage kidney disease in the United States. People with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are at risk. The risk is higher if blood-glucose levels are poorly controlled. Furthermore, once nephropathy develops, the greatest rate of progression is seen in patients with poor control of their blood pressure. Also people with high cholesterol level in their blood have much more risk than others ...
Full Text - Multiple studies indicate that microRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in diabetes. However, the roles of miRNA in the target organ damages in diabetes remain unclear. This study investigated the functions of miR-320a in diabetic nephropathy (DN). In this study, db/db mice were used to observe the changes in podocytes and their function in vivo, as well as in cultured mouse podocyte cells (MPC5) exposed to high glucose in vitro. To further explore the role of miR-320a in DN, recombinant adeno-associated viral particle was administered intravenously to manipulate the expression of miR-320a in db/db mice. Overexpression of miR-320a markedly promoted podocyte loss and dysfunction in DN, including mesangial expansion and increased levels of proteinuria, serum creatinine and urea nitrogen. Furthermore, MafB was identified as a direct target of miR-320a through AGO2 co-immunoprecipitation, luciferase reporter assay, and Western blotting. Moreover, re-expression of MafB rescued miR-320a-induced podocyte
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is a major complication of diabetes and is caused by an imbalance in the expression of certain genes that activate or inhibit vital cellular functions of kidney. Despite several recent advances, the pathogenesis of DN remains far from clear, suggesting the need to carry out studies identifying molecular aspects, such as gene expression, that could play a key role in the development of DN. There are several techniques to analyze transcriptome in living organisms. In this study, the suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) method was used to generate up- and down-regulated subtracted cDNA libraries in the kidney of streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Northern-blot analysis was used to confirm differential expression ratios from the obtained SSH clones to identify genes related to DN. 400 unique SSH clones were randomly chosen from the two subtraction libraries (200 of each) and verified as differentially expressed. According to blast screening and functional annotation
