Pathologic deposition of calcium salts in tissues.
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.

A common application is in epidemiology for estimating an individual's risk (probability of a disease) as a function of a given risk factor.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.

Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.

Methoxyflurane nephropathy. (1/7998)

Investigations of methoxyflurane-induced nephrotoxicity in man have been extensively aided by the use of an animal model. To be of value the animal model must share similar metabolic pathways with man and have the same clinical manifestations of the diseases process. The Fischer 344 rat appears to meet these criteria. The predominant factors in the production of methoxyflurane nephrotoxicity appear to be high methoxyflurane dosage and serum inorganic fluoride concentration. It is likely that secondary factors include: (1) a high rate of methoxyflurane metabolism and sepsitivity of the kidney to inorganic fluoride toxicity: (2) concurrent treatment with other nephrotoxic drugs; (3) preexisting renal disease; (4) surgery of the urogenital tract, aorta, or renal vasculative; (5) repeat administration of methoxyflurane due to accumulation of inorganic fluoride and, perhaps, methoxyflurane induction of its own metabolism: and (6) concurrent treatment with enzyme-inducing drugs such as phenobarbital.  (+info)

Perinatal nephropathies. (2/7998)

The purpose of this paper is to review the development of the mammalian kidney and to assess the influence that various perinatal manipulations may have on the developmental process either morphologically or functionally. Immature kidneys in general have less functional capacity than adult kidneys and a low rate of glomerular filtration, perhaps related to renal blood flow, which appears to limit the disposition of a fluid or solute load. Tubular reabsorption is also limited leading to the urinary loss of glucose, amino acids, bicarbonate and phosphate. Although the relatively low function of the immature kidney is a normal part of development, its capacity to respond under conditions of stress may be less adequate than in adults. An additional concern is that a variety of perinatal manipulations, such as the incidental or accidental ingestion of a chemical, may lead to varying degrees of altered morphogenesis or functional development of the kidney. Chemical induced renal anomalies may be of several types, but in typical teratology experiments hydronephrosis may be the most frequent observation. The functional consequences of these renal malformations may be lethal or inconsequential or while an animal may be able to survive and develop normally in the presence of a renal malformation, it is possible that a stressful situation would unmask a functional malformation which could compromise survival. Thus, some renal abnormalities may be subtle enough to go unnoticed without experimental tests. Without such tests it is impossible to evaluate the effect of functional alterations on successful adaptation.  (+info)

Renal function tests: what do they mean? A review of renal anatomy, biochemistry, and physiology. (3/7998)

Renal physiology, biochemistry, and anatomy are reviewed. For the most part, those aspects of these disciplines will be discussed which relate directly to the question of the evaluation of nephrotoxicity. In addition, emphasis is placed on those procedures and techniques which are useful in the evaluation of nephrotoxicity. A detailed discussion of histological and anatomical considerations is not given, since this is probably the least useful criterion for evaluation of renal damage. This information is intended as background for the remainder of the symposium which will be directed toward an understanding of specific nephrotoxicity phenomena.  (+info)

Role of the angiotensin type 2 receptor gene in congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract, CAKUT, of mice and men. (4/7998)

Angiotensin type 2 receptor gene null mutant mice display congenital anomalies of the kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT). Various features of mouse CAKUT impressively mimic human CAKUT. Studies of the human type 2 receptor (AGTR2) gene in two independent cohorts found that a significant association exists between CAKUT and a nucleotide transition within the lariat branchpoint motif of intron 1, which perturbs AGTR2 mRNA splicing efficiency. AGTR2, therefore, has a significant ontogenic role for the kidney and urinary tract system. Studies revealed that the establishment of CAKUT is preceded by delayed apoptosis of undifferentiated mesenchymal cells surrounding the urinary tract during key ontogenic events, from the ureteral budding to the expansive growth of the kidney and ureter.  (+info)

The inhibition of myeloperoxidase by ceruloplasmin can be reversed by anti-myeloperoxidase antibodies. (5/7998)

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to characterize the recently reported inhibition of myeloperoxidase (MPO) by ceruloplasmin and to determine whether this may be disturbed in the presence of anti-MPO antibodies. METHODS: Specificity of the binding between ceruloplasmin and MPO was confirmed by Western blotting and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and the enzymatic activity of MPO was measured in the presence of ceruloplasmin, affinity-purified anti-MPO antibodies, or both. The affinity of the binding between MPO and ceruloplasmin and MPO and the anti-MPO antibodies was measured using a biosensor, with the results confirmed by chaotrope ELISA. RESULTS: Affinity-purified anti-MPO antibodies from patients with microscopic polyangiitis and florid renal vasculitis inhibited the binding between ceruloplasmin and MPO to a maximum of 72.9 +/- 12.8%, whereas those from patients with Wegener's granulomatosis and only minimal renal involvement inhibited the binding to a maximum of only 36.8 +/- 10.9% (P < 0. 001), with comparable reversal of the ceruloplasmin-mediated inhibition of MPO activity. Measurement of the affinity of the interactions demonstrated that binding between MPO and the anti-MPO antibodies is stronger than that between MPO and ceruloplasmin (1.61 x 107 to 1.33 x 108 vs. 7.46 x 106 m-1), indicating that binding to the autoantibody would be favored in vivo. CONCLUSIONS: This study confirms a role for ceruloplasmin as a physiological inhibitor of MPO, and demonstrates how the inhibition may be disrupted in the presence of anti-MPO antibodies. Because a majority (16 of 21) of the antibodies did not themselves inhibit MPO activity, their interference with the inhibition mediated by ceruloplasmin may be brought about by steric hindrance consequent upon the binding of the antibody to a dominant epitope at or near the active site.  (+info)

Expression of bcl-2 and bax in glomerular disease. (6/7998)

Bcl-2 may account in part for the maintenance of hypercellularity in human glomerular diseases through preventing cell death and by counteracting bax which may be expressed to regulate excessive proliferation. This process is associated with the effect of PDGF B-chain expression. Bax expression may be important in the cell loss leading to glomerulosclerosis and TGF-beta1 participates in this process by increasing bax expression. Thus, the balance of bcl-2/bax expression may be critical in the course of human glomerular diseases.  (+info)

Effect of fasting on temporal variation in the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B in rats. (7/7998)

Evidence for temporal variation in the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B was recently reported in experimental animals. The role of food in these variations was determined by studying the effect of a short fasting period on the temporal variation in the renal toxicity of amphotericin B. Twenty-eight normally fed and 28 fasted female Sprague-Dawley rats were used. Food was available ad libitum to the fed rats, while the fasted animals were fasted 12 h before and 24 h after amphotericin B injection to minimize stress for the animals. Water was available ad libitum to both groups of rats, which were maintained on a 14-h light, 10-h dark regimen (light on at 0600 h). Renal toxicity was determined by comparing the levels of excretion of renal enzyme and the serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels at the time of the maximal (0700 h) or the minimal (1900 h) nephrotoxicity after the intraperitoneal administration of a single dose of dextrose (5%; control group) or amphotericin B (50 mg/kg of body weight; treated group) to the rats. The nephrotoxicities obtained after amphotericin B administration at both times of day were compared to the nephrotoxicities observed for time-matched controls. In fed animals, the 24-h urinary excretion of N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase and beta-galactosidase was significantly higher when amphotericin B was injected at 0700 and 1900 h. The excretion of these two enzymes was reduced significantly (P < 0.05) in fasting rats, and this effect was larger at 0700 h (P < 0.05) than at 1900 h. The serum creatinine level was also significantly higher (P < 0.05) in fed animals treated at 0700 h than in fed animals treated at 1900 h. Fasting reduced significantly (P < 0.05) the increase in the serum creatinine level, and this effect was larger in the animals treated at 0700 h. Similar data were obtained for BUN levels. Amphotericin B accumulation was significantly higher (P < 0.05) in the renal cortexes of fed rats than in those of fasted animals, but there was no difference according to the time of injection. These results demonstrated that fasting reduces the nephrotoxicity of amphotericin B and that food availability is of crucial importance in the temporal variation in the renal toxicity of amphotericin B in rats.  (+info)

Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor (AT1) antagonists: either or both for primary renal disease? (8/7998)

At the present time we cannot assume that the proven benefits of ACEI on renal disease will be reproduced by using AT1-ra. With potentially differing modes of activity of these drugs, they cannot be seen as interchangeable and ACEI should remain the drug of choice in patients with progressive renal disease unless they are not tolerated. It is possible that AT1-ra may offer additional advantages in some patients or that synergy exists between the two agents, but this view will remain entirely speculative unless proper trials are conducted. Despite the results of the ELITE study [22], the uncertainty regarding the use AT1-ra in cardiovascular disease mirrors that of renal disease. This issue is obviously of relevance to the nephrologist in view of the spectrum of cardiac disease that accompanies chronic renal failure, such as left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiac failure, which provide multiple indications for manipulation of RAS. Despite their renoprotective effect, previous studies on ACEI [3,4] have not shown an overall reduction in mortality and this issue needs to be addressed in addition to renoprotection in studies comparing AT1-ra and ACEI.  (+info)

Background and Purpose - Although patients with severe renal dysfunction who receive iodinated contrast are at high risk of CIN, contrast-enhanced CT scans are often obtained without prior knowledge of kidney function in patients with acute stroke. The researchers aimed to develop a tool to identify patients with acute stroke at a high risk of CIN in the absence of a recent GFR.. Materials and Methods - The researchers used the Registry of the Canadian Stroke Network (9872 patients) and Ontario Stroke Audit (2544 patients) for the derivation and validation cohort, respectively. A multivariable logistic regression model was performed to develop a predictive tool to identify severe renal dysfunction (defined as a GFR , 30 mL/min/1.73 m2).. Results - The overall prevalence of severe renal dysfunction was 4.9% and 5.2% in the derivation and validation cohort, respectively. The prediction rule was designed as follows: (age in years) = (5 points for women) = (5 points for history of diabetes mellitus) ...
According to the latest report from Fox News, a study found that moderate drinking of wine is not only good for heart health, but also helps protect the kidneys and prevent chronic kidney disease (CKD).. In the new study, Dr. Tapan Mita of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and colleagues analyzed the data of 5,852 participants involved in the 2003-2006 National Health and Nutrition Survey. Among the participants, 1031 had chronic kidney disease. It was found that moderate drinking of wine in patients with chronic kidney disease is beneficial to health. Chronic kidney disease patients who drink less than 1 glass of wine a day have a 29% lower incidence of cardiovascular disease than those who do not drink alcohol. Among the healthy kidney participants, drinking less than one glass a day can also effectively reduce the incidence of chronic kidney disease. The risk of chronic kidney disease was reduced by 37% compared with those who did not drink alcohol. According to the American Heart ...

In a large sample of adults with type 1 diabetes from Finland, an independent, graded association was observed between the presence and severity of chronic kidney disease and all-cause mortality. In this population, excess mortality associated with type 1 diabetes was only observed in individuals with chronic kidney disease (Fig. 2), whereas mortality in participants without chronic kidney disease (66% of the total cohort) was identical to the general population. These results from a stable, nationally representative cohort of adults with type 1 diabetes complement and extend evidence from the last 2 decades showing the link between mortality and chronic kidney disease (3-6). These findings highlight the continuing clinical and public health importance of chronic kidney disease and its prevention in the management of type 1 diabetes.. Our findings in individuals with type 1 diabetes are analogous to the relation between chronic kidney disease and mortality previously described in individuals ...
In an analysis of the AWARD-7 study, people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) and moderate-to-severe chronic kidney disease (CKD) who took 1.5 mg of dulaglutide once weekly had a reduction of clinical events associated with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) including dialysis and with a kidney transplant, and a slower rate of kidney function decline compared to people who used insulin or a lower dose of dulaglutide. The study is an abstract titled Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Outcomes with Dulaglutide (DU) Versus Insulin Glargine (IG) in Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) and Moderate-to-Severe CKD by Albuminuria Status: AWARD-7, presented today at the American Diabetes Associations® (ADAs) 79th Scientific Sessions® at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco..

Normally, if glomerular filtration rate is not lower than 90 mL/min/1.73 m2 and there are abnormalities point to kidney disease, then this person will be diagnosed with stage 1 Chronic Kidney Disease, even if the kidney function is normal. Gradually, when glomerular filtration rate decreases to the range from 60 to 89 mL/min/1.73 m2, meanwhile, there are renal damage founded by examination, and then we can say, Chronic Kidney Disease has run to stage 2. Generally, there are no obvious symptoms during these two stages; therefore, Chronic Kidney Disease in early stage is easy to be neglected ...
Depression coinciding with chronic kidney disease raises kidney failure risk in older adults. The researchers studied 5,785 people over the age of 65 from four different counties across the U.S. The participants completed questionnaires to uncover depressive symptoms and a broad range of medical measurements. The researchers examined whether depression predicted the onset of kidney disease or other medical problems that involved the kidneys.. The findings uncovered that depression coincided with the presence of chronic kidney disease and was 20 percent more common in individuals with kidney disease. Depression also predicted a steady progression in kidney disease.. Lead researcher Dr. Willem Kop said, People with elevated depressive symptoms have a higher risk of subsequent adverse kidney disease outcomes. This is partially explained by other medical factors related to depression and kidney disease. But, the association with depression was stronger in patients who were otherwise healthy, ...
Models used for predicting the likelihood of individuals developing chronic kidney disease and for predicting disease progression in people who already have the condition are useful tools but not yet robust enough to help inform clinical guidelines, according to a study published in this weeks PLOS Medicine.. Chronic kidney disease is a common but serious condition which can lead to kidney failure. The condition cannot be cured but progression of the disease can be slowed by controlling high blood pressure and diabetes, both causes of chronic kidney disease, and by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Identifying people who are at risk of developing chronic kidney disease is therefore of utmost importance and researchers are currently using risk models-a method to assess the risk of developing the condition-as currently, there is no screening test for chronic kidney disease.. Justin Echouffo-Tcheugui from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, and Andre Kengne from the South African Medical Research ...
Chronic kidney disease includes conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy by doing the jobs listed. If kidney disease gets worse, wastes can build to high levels in your blood and make you feel sick. You may develop complications like high blood pressure, anemia (low blood count), weak bones, poor nutritional health and nerve damage. Also, kidney disease increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease. These problems may happen slowly over a long period of time. Chronic kidney disease may be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders. Early detection and treatment can often keep chronic kidney disease from getting worse. When kidney disease progresses, it may eventually lead to kidney failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain life. ...
It is known to all that stages of Chronic Kidney Disease are made in the light of GRF which is short for glomerular filtration rate. According to the international standard, when glomerular filtration rate decreases to the range from 30 ml/min/1.73m2 to 59 ml/min/1.73m2, then we can diagnose that this disease has run to the third stage. With the arrival of stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, some worrisome symptoms will appear and on the basis of these perceptible symptoms, we can infer how much our kidneys has been damaged.Fist of all, with the occurrence of stage 3 Chronic Kidney Disease, usually, some urination changes may occur to you. For example, while you are urinating, you may found there are foams in your urine, which results from the leakage of large amount of protein from kidneys. In addition, your urine color may appear to be brown, tea colored or even red. Changed urine color and foamy urine all implies that kidneys have been damaged greatly and they already can not keep some substances ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) slowly gets worse ver time. In the early stages, there may be no symptoms. The loss of Function usually takes months or years to occur. It may be so slow that symptoms do not appear until the kidney is less than one tenth of the normal.. The final stage of chronic kidney diseases is called end-stage renal diseases (ESRD). At this stage, the kidneys are no longer able to remove enough wastes and excess fluids from the body. The patient needs dialysis or a kidney transplant.. Chronic kidney disease and ESRD affect more than 2 out of every 1000 people in the United States.. Diabetes and high blood pressure are the two most common causes and account for most cases.. Chronic Kidney disease leads to a buildup of fluid and waste products in the body.This condition affects most body systems and functions, including: ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is the presence of kidney damage, or a decreased level of kidney function, for a period of three months or more. Kidney disease can range from mild to severe and in some cases, lead to kidney failure (sometimes referred to as end-stage kidney disease, or ESKD). Kidney disease often starts slowly and develops without symptoms over a number of years, so CKD may not be detected until it has progressed to the point where your kidney function is quite low. Fortunately, most people do not progress to end-stage kidney disease, especially if they are diagnosed early and are able to take steps to preserve their remaining kidney function.. End-stage kidney disease does not mean the end of your life. End-stage means the end of your kidney function: your kidneys no longer adequately filter your blood. If your kidneys fail, there are a number of different treatment options including non-dialysis supportive care (conservative care), transplantation, or different forms of dialysis ...

The screening will provide participants with a health risk appraisal, blood pressure measurement, blood and urine testing and the opportunity to discuss their health and review results with the onsite clinician, nephrologist Dr. Khurram Mumtaz. Twenty-six million adults in the United States have chronic kidney disease and millions more are at risk, said Mumtaz. Most people with kidney disease are not aware of it, he said. Routine blood and urine tests can be useful in diagnosing kidney disease. The community has high prevalence of common ...
There are five stages of kidney disease, however, the early stage of the disease may not be detected as there is usually no symptoms until its almost too late.. The test to detect kidney disease in its early stages is called glomerular filtration rate (GFR).. There are many causes of kidney disease but the two main causes are high blood pressure and diabetes.. These two diseases are responsible for up to two-thirds of kidney disease cases.

Asian Chronic Kidney Disease Best Practice Recommendations: Positional Statements for Early Detection of Chronic Kidney Disease From Asian Forum for Chronic Kidney Disease Initiatives (AFCKDI)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), which is also known as kidney failure or renal insufficiency, is an exceedingly common disorder among older adults. Normally, the kidneys filter the blood, excrete toxins and waste, and maintain electrolyte balance. When kidney function is compromised, these actions are impaired, which can result in fatal consequences. The majority of cases are due to long-standing diabetes mellitus and/or hypertension. These diseases damage the blood vessels of the kidneys, causing kidney dysfunction. Few symptoms are noticeable until about 75 percent of kidney function has been lost. Initial symptoms may include fluid retention, swelling of the legs, hypertension, and anemia. As kidney function is further compromised, more severe symptoms develop, including shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, weight loss, confusion, and severe itching.. Kidney disease is also a major risk factor for heart disease. Indeed, most patients with chronic kidney disease die from cardiovascular disease ...
The most common form of kidney disease is chronic kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease is a long-term condition that doesnt improve over time. Its commonly caused by high blood pressure. High blood pressure is dangerous for the kidneys because it can increase the pressure on the glomeruli. Glomeruli are the tiny blood vessels in the kidneys where blood is cleaned. Over time, the increased pressure damages these vessels and kidney function begins to decline.. Kidney function will eventually deteriorate to the point where the kidneys can no longer perform their job properly. In this case, a person would need to go on dialysis. Dialysis filters extra fluid and waste out of the blood. Dialysis can help treat kidney disease but it cant cure it. A kidney transplant may be another treatment option depending on your circumstances.. Diabetes is also a major cause of chronic kidney disease. Diabetes is a group of diseases that causes high blood sugar. The increased level of sugar in the blood damages ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a type of kidney disease in which there is gradual loss of kidney function over a period of months or years. Early on there are typically no symptoms. Later, leg swelling, feeling tired, vomiting, loss of appetite, or confusion may develop. Complications may include heart disease, high blood pressure, bone disease, or anemia. Causes of chronic kidney disease include diabetes, high blood pressure, glomerulonephritis, and polycystic kidney disease. Risk factors include a family history of the condition. Diagnosis is generally by blood tests to measure the glomerular filtration rate and urine tests to measure albumin. Further tests such as an ultrasound or kidney biopsy may be done to determine the underlying cause. A number of different classification systems exist. Screening at-risk people is recommended. Initial treatments may include medications to manage blood pressure, blood sugar, and lower cholesterol. NSAIDs should be avoided. Other recommended measures ...

Chronic kidney disease is associated with the loss of skeletal muscle mass and function. This process detrimentally impacts mobility, functional independence, and quality of life. Mounting evidence suggests that chronic kidney disease impairs skeletal muscle functioning by injuring mitochondria, the central energy producing units of cells.. Potential treatment options to restore mitochondrial function include aerobic and weight bearing exercise and medications that directly improve mitochondrial energetics. Unfortunately, exercise programs may be difficult to implement in people who have chronic diseases, such as kidney disease.. Coenzyme Q10 (coQ10) and nicotinamide riboside (NR) are naturally occurring supplements that can directly improve mitochondrial efficiency. Both compounds help mitochondria produce more energy while generating less waste.. The primary purpose of this study is to test whether coQ10 and NR can improve muscle function among people with chronic kidney disease. What we learn ...
[Hypertension and chronic kidney disease are independent cardiovascular risk factors. The 5th Cardiovascular Consensus Conference has recommended chronic kidney disease in high-risk category. In chronic kidney disease hypertension is observed in most cases.

Kidney Disease: Quick Facts and Stats There is no cure for kidney disease. So now what? Care About Your Kidneys - Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is decreased kidney function for three months or more. End-stage renal disease refers to the end of kidney function (kidneys work at less than 15 per cent of what is considered normal).Without properly functioning kidneys, you could die. The kidney plays a central role in the human body and is as important to your health as your heart, liver or lungs. Many of the bodys organs depend on the kidneys to work properly. The kidneys main functions are to remove waste products and regulate water in the blood, help control blood pressure, and produce hormones to promote strong, healthy bones. Pervasive & Persistent - Kidney disease can strike anyone at any age. Two million Canadians are living with kidney disease, or are at risk. Every day, 14 Canadians learn that their kidneys are failing. Core Causes - The two most common and preventable causes of end-stage ...

Background and aim: There had been no randomized end-point studies with statins for patients with severe renal failure. The purpose of this prospective, open, randomized, controlled study was to investigate whether atorvastatin (10 mg/day) would alter cardiovascular end-points and the overall mortality rate of patients with chronic kidney disease stage 4 or 5 (creatinine clearance,/30 ml/min) and to influence risk factors.. Material & Methods: This was an open, prospective, randomized study. A total of 143 patients were included: 73 were controls and 70 were prescribed 10 mg/day of atorvastatin. As efficacy variables, total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglyceride levels were determined at the start of the study and at 1, 3, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30 and 36 months. The primary end-points were all cause of mortality, non-lethal acute myocardial infarction, and coronary artery intervention. Various risk factors were studied. In the 97 patients ...

Kidney disease is a global public health problem, affecting over 750 million persons worldwide. The burden of kidney disease varies substantially across the world, as does its detection and treatment. In many settings, rates of kidney disease and the provision of its care are defined by socio-economic, cultural, and political factors leading to significant disparities. World Kidney Day 2019 offers an opportunity to raise awareness of kidney disease and highlight disparities in its burden and current state of global capacity for prevention and management. Here, we highlight that many countries still lack access to basic diagnostics, a trained nephrology workforce, universal access to primary health care, and renal replacement therapies. We point to the need for strengthening basic infrastructure for kidney care services for early detection and management of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease across all countries and advocate for more pragmatic approaches to providing renal replacement ...
source: People with chronic kidney disease are 10 times more likely than healthy individuals to die of heart attacks and strokes.. Fortunately, chronic kidney disease can be detected early on, and detection is easy. Simple, routine tests of urine, blood and blood pressure can show early signs of kidney problems. And the good news is that once these problems are known, it is possible to slow down and even stop chronic kidney disease, by taking medicines and changing some living habits. Early detection and treatment of CKD can not only slow or halt the progression of patients to end-stage renal disease, but it can also significantly reduce the incidence of cardiovascular diseases; which are today by far the most common cause of premature deaths worldwide.. If however, a patient has CKD which cannot be cured by medication, the health of their kidneys may progressively worsen to the point where they must resort to renal therapy. Each ...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 8 to 16% people worldwide, with an increasing incidence and prevalence of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). The effective management of CKD is confounded by the inability to identify patients at high risk of progression while in early stages of CKD. To address this challenge, a renal biopsy transcriptome-driven approach was applied to develop noninvasive prognostic biomarkers for CKD progression. Expression of intrarenal transcripts was correlated with the baseline estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in 261 patients. Proteins encoded by eGFR-associated transcripts were tested in urine for association with renal tissue injury and baseline eGFR. The ability to predict CKD progression, defined as the composite of ESKD or 40% reduction of baseline eGFR, was then determined in three independent CKD cohorts. A panel of intrarenal transcripts, including epidermal growth factor (EGF), a tubule-specific protein critical for cell differentiation and ...
GFR numbers are the single most important factor in determining a patients CKD treatment Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is rarely reversible, but with treatment it can be slowed and the need for dialysis and transplantation postponed. CKD severity is divided into five stages based on the glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Early diagnosis of kidney disease is the key to managing patient health. Kidney disease often goes undetected until the kidneys are at failure and require dialysis or transplantation. Understanding the risk factors and the symptoms of CKD enable early detection and effective disease management. When primary care physicians work closely with our nephrologists, we are able to slow the progression of the disease and keep out patients healthier longer. Kidney Disease Risk Factors Many things play a role in determining risk for kidney disease including lifestyle, genetics and race. Risk factors include: ...
95% chronic kidney disease is caused by the immune disorder. Normal immune system is to fight with the germs and bacteria to keep people healthy.

These analyses, based on more than 150 000 trial participants and 15 000 major cardiovascular events, are uniquely powerful and provide precise estimates of the effects on major cardiovascular events of the most widely used regimens to lower blood pressure in patients with and without chronic kidney disease. There are, however, several important limitations. Firstly, most participants with chronic kidney disease in this study were in stage 3a (mostly in the range of 45-60 mL/min/m2), and few participants (0.4%) had eGFR ≤30 mL/min/1.73 m2. As a result, the applicability of these results to populations with stage 4-5 disease is uncertain, although they are broadly consistent with a meta-analysis of blood pressure lowering in patients with severe kidney disease who were receiving dialysis.54 Likewise, few participants had documented proteinuria and only limited numbers of events were available in this population group. Secondly, the analyses depend on the trial data that were available at the ...
