BACKGROUND: About 146,000 people were forced into long-term evacuation due to the nuclear power plant accident caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011. Disaster is known to induce hypertension in survivors for a certain period, but it is unclear whether prolonged disaster stress influences chronic kidney disease (CKD). We conducted an observational cohort study to elucidate the effects of evacuation stress on CKD incidence. METHODS: Participants were individuals living in communities near the Fukushima nuclear power plant, aged 40-74 years without CKD as of their 2011 general health checkup (non-evacuees: n = 9780, evacuees: n = 4712)...

BACKGROUND: The Stewart model for analyzing acid-base disturbances emphasizes serum albumin levels, which are ignored in the traditional Boston model. We compared data derived using the Stewart model to those using the Boston model in patients with nephrotic syndrome. METHODS: Twenty-nine patients with nephrotic syndrome and six patients without urinary protein or acid-base disturbances provided blood and urine samples for analysis that included routine biochemical and arterial blood gas tests, plasma renin activity, and aldosterone...

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the diagnostic value of serum ferritin levels as a marker of disease activity and the development of encephalopathy in hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) induced by enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli. METHODS: Twenty patients with HUS were studied. Serum ferritin levels were compared with clinical features and serum soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor (sTNFR) I and sTNFRII levels. Serum sTNFRI and sTNFRII levels were quantified by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays...

BACKGROUND: Acute renal infarction (ARI) is a rare disease. ARI causes decline in renal function in both the acute and chronic phases. However, the correlation between the volume of the infarction and degree of renal function decline has not been fully investigated. Therefore, we aimed to examine the relationship between the volume of the infarction and degree of renal function decline. METHODS: We performed a single-center, retrospective, observational study investigating clinical parameters and the volume of the infarction...

INTRODUCTION: Diuretic therapy has been the mainstay of treatment in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients, primarily for hypertension and fluid overload. Apart from their beneficial effects, diuretic use is associated with adverse renal outcomes. The current study is aimed to determine the outcomes of diuretic therapy. METHODOLOGY: A prospective observational study was conducted by inviting pre-dialysis CKD patients. Fluid overload was assessed by Bioimpedance analysis (BIA)...

BACKGROUND: We investigated the impact of the CYP3A5 genotype on the distributions of dose-adjusted trough concentrations (C 0h/D) and the incidence of rejection in Japanese recipients taking twice-daily (Tac-BID, n = 140) or modified-release once-daily (Tac-QD, n = 80) tacrolimus formulations for 1 year after renal transplantation. METHODS: Logistic regression analysis was carried out to estimate the distinction rate of CYP3A5 genotypes based on the C 0h/D of Tac-BID or Tac-QD...

BACKGROUND: In Japan, the Specific Health Check and Guidance (Tokutei-Kenshin) has started in 2008. However, the relationship between the baseline characteristics and mortality has not been examined. METHODS: Subjects were those who participated at the 2008 Tokutei-Kenshin in six districts with baseline data of serum creatinine. Using National database of death certificate from 2008 to 2012, we identified those who might have died and confirmed further with the collaborations of the regional National Health Insurance agency and public health nurses...

REVIEW
Hiroshi Tanaka, Kensuke Joh, Tadaatsu Imaizumi
Lupus nephritis (LN) is one of the major clinical manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) which occurs frequently in the early stages of pediatric-onset cases. Since SLE is a chronic disease associated with frequent disease flares and effective and safe maintenance therapy is required for achieving a favorable outcome, optimal treatment for LN in pubertal patients is a great challenge that remains to be overcome. Although its etiology remains unclear, it has been reported that the innate and adaptive immune systems have been reported to play an important role in the pathogenesis of SLE...

BACKGROUND: Although serum cystatin C and creatinine are used as practical markers of renal function, the discrepancy between them in postrenal acute kidney injury (AKI) cases was reported. The aim of this study was to determine whether the preoperative serum cystatin C (pre-CysC) level could predict clinical outcomes after treatment in patients with postrenal AKI. METHODS: Patients who underwent urological interventions with postrenal AKI were enrolled in this prospective observational study...

BACKGROUND: In connective tissue diseases, a wide variety of glomerular, tubulointerstitial, and vascular lesions of the kidney are observed. Nonetheless, recent information is limited regarding renal lesions in connective tissue diseases, except in systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). METHODS: In this study, we used a nationwide database of biopsy-confirmed renal diseases in Japan (J-RBR) (UMIN000000618). In total, 20,523 registered patients underwent biopsy between 2007 and 2013; from 110 patients with connective tissue diseases except SLE, we extracted data regarding the clinico-pathological characteristics of the renal biopsy...

BACKGROUND: Hereditary hypomagnesemia is difficult to diagnose accurately because of its rarity and the variety of causative genes. We established a flowchart for identifying responsible genes for hypomagnesemia, and we confirmed its diagnostic efficacy in patients with suspected inherited hypomagnesemia. METHODS: We established a flowchart and applied it to five index cases with suspected inherited hypomagnesemia. Direct sequence analysis was used to detect the causative gene variants in four cases, and targeted sequencing analysis using next-generation sequencing (NGS) of all causative genes for hypomagnesemia was used in one...

BACKGROUND: The underlying mechanism linking the decline in exercise capacity with renal dysfunction remains unclear. Urinary liver-type fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) levels reflect the degree of peritubular capillary blood flow, an important factor for renal dysfunction with aging. The aim of this study was to examine the relationship between exercise capacity and urinary L-FABP levels. METHODS: This was a cross-sectional study of 187 middle-aged and older individuals (aged 50-83 years) without chronic kidney disease (CKD)...

BACKGROUND: Tolvaptan, a vasopressin V2 receptor blocker, has a diuretic effect for patients with heart failure. However, there were a few data concerning the effects of tolvaptan in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 21 patients with chronic heart failure and CKD. Tolvaptan was co-administered with other diuretics in-use, every day. We compared clinical parameters before and after the treatments with tolvaptan. Furthermore, we examined the correlations between baseline data and the change of body weight...

BACKGROUND: Alport syndrome (AS) is a hereditary kidney disease caused by mutation of type IV collagen. Loss of collagen network induces collapse of glomerular basement membrane (GBM) structure. The previous studies showed that upregulation of some tyrosine kinase receptors signaling accompanied GBM disorder in AS mouse model. EGFR signaling is one of the well-known receptor kinase signaling that is involved in glomerular diseases. However, whether EGFR signaling is relevant to AS progression is still uninvestigated...
