BACKGROUND: The cardiothoracic ratio (CTR) is a non-invasive left ventricular hypertrophy index. However, whether CTR associates with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality in hemodialysis (HD) populations is unclear. METHODS: Using a Mineral and Bone disorder Outcomes Study for Japanese CKD Stage 5D Patients (MBD-5D Study) subcohort, 2266 prevalent HD patients (age 62.8 years, female 38.0%, HD duration 9.4 years) with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) whose baseline CTR had been recorded were selected...

BACKGROUND: This study analysed the trend in mortality from nephrotic syndrome in Japan from 1995 to 2013. Moreover, to better understand premature death from nephrotic syndrome, the average years of life lost due to nephrotic syndrome were estimated. METHODS: National death certificate data were evaluated. Age-standardised mortality rates from nephrotic syndrome were calculated by direct standardisation using the World Standard Population. Trends for average annual changes in percentages were determined by joinpoint regression analysis...

BACKGROUND: Dialysis patients have a suboptimal response to hepatitis B (HBV) vaccination. This study aimed to compare the immunogenicity of two vaccines: the third-generation Sci-B-Vac™ vs. the second-generation Engerix B(®). The cohort included two groups of dialysis patients: naïve and previously vaccinated non-responders. Primary endpoints were antibody titers ≥10 IU/L at 3 and 7 month post-vaccination. Secondary objectives were seroprotection rates in vaccine-naïve patients and in previously vaccinated non-responders...

BACKGROUND: Rituximab is effective against complicated childhood steroid-dependent nephrotic syndrome (SDNS). Peripheral blood B-lymphocyte (B-cell) depletion is strongly correlated with persistent remission, relapse rarely occurring during B-cell depletion; however, we have encountered several such patients. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the characteristics and clinical course of 82 patients with SDNS treated with rituximab from January 2007 to December 2012 in our institution...

BACKGROUND: It is well known that atrophic renal changes are associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression, but conventional diagnostic imaging methods such as noncontrast-enhanced computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been insufficient for precisely assessing kidney function because they cannot clearly distinguish between the medulla and cortex. Hence, here we used noncontrast-enhanced steady-state free precession (SSFP) MRI with a spatially selective inversion recovery (IR) pulse to improve visibility for renal corticomedullary differentiation and evaluated the association between morphological parameters and kidney function in patients with CKD...

BACKGROUND: Thallium-201 washout rate of stress myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) has been reported to correlate with coronary flow reserve which is a parameter of myocardial microcirculation. However, the evidence for its use in diabetic kidney disease (DKD) has been lacking, and the association between thallium-201 washout rate and adverse outcomes including death is unknown. Therefore, the present study was conducted to evaluate the predictive ability of thallium-201 washout rate for mortality in DKD patients initiating hemodialysis...

BACKGROUND: Hyperkalemia is prevalent in end-stage renal disease patients, being involved in life-threatening arrhythmias. Although polystyrene sulfonate (PS) is commonly used for the treatment of hyperkalemia, direct comparison of effects between calcium and sodium PS (CPS and SPS) on mineral and bone metabolism has not yet been studied. METHODS: In a randomized and crossover design, 20 pre-dialysis patients with hyperkalemia (>5 mmol/l) received either oral CPS or SPS therapy for 4 weeks...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to examine whether plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) levels predict the outcome of kidney function and correlate with the severity of tubulointerstitial damages in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: In this prospective 18-month cohort study of 112 patients with CKD between 2010 and 2011, associations between plasma NGAL levels and estimated glomerular filtration ratio (eGFR), further worsening of kidney function and histological lesion on kidney biopsy were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Renal volume change greatly affects renal function after nephrectomy. Although various measuring techniques were reported, no standard measuring method is available. In this study, we examined the computational automated volumetric method, and evaluated the volumetric change to assess the functional outcome in patients undergoing radical nephrectomy. We developed the predictive equation for postoperative renal function from volume alternation and validated the performance...

BACKGROUND: High circulating levels of soluble tumor necrosis factor receptors (TNFRs: TNFR1, TNFR2) predict renal function decline in a variety of kidney diseases. Tonsillectomy with steroid pulse (TSP) therapy has been reported as a remission induction therapy in IgA nephropathy (IgAN), mainly in Japan. However, little is known about whether TNFR levels change after TSP therapy in patients with IgAN. METHODS: Two hundred twenty-three patients with IgAN were stratified according to the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR): Group I (eGFR ≥ 60 mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Iron deficiency anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL), a biomarker of acute kidney injury, is known to be associated with iron metabolism. We investigated whether plasma NGAL level is associated with iron status in pre-dialysis CKD patients with anemia. METHODS: This study included 419 patients who had anemia. The subjects were into categorized into a pre-dialysis group (estimated glomerular filtration rate [eGFR] <60 ml/min/1...

BACKGROUND: It remains to be fully clarified whether there is a relationship between uncontrolled dyslipidemia and decline in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) in the general population. Therefore, this study's aim was to test the association of dyslipidemia with changes in eGFR in apparently healthy working men. METHODS: We retrospectively examined the annual medical check-up list of 14,510 male workers aged 20-60 years with eGFR ≥ 60 mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: The number of kidney injury due to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) is the largest among drug-induced kidney diseases. Newly developed NSAID plaster containing S-flurbiprofen (SFP) shows innovative percutaneous absorption. However, systemic exposure to SFP following the repeated application of 80 mg/day was estimated as comparable to that of oral 120 mg/day flurbiprofen and prolonged use of topical NSAIDs is common in clinical practice. Thus, we report the safety focusing on the kidney function after long-term application of SFP plaster (SFPP)...

BACKGROUND: Although the risk of acute rejection has been studied in renal transplanted patients, there is little data about the long-term renal survival effects of non-classical human leukocyte antigen class I (HLA-G) in Japanese patients. METHOD: We investigated the changes in the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) for Japanese, and factors affecting the eGFR in 141 adult Japanese subjects whose allografts had survived for at least 1 year. Clinical background data, gender, HLA matching status, the total ischemic time, ABO incompatibility, immunosuppressive therapy, and the serum soluble(s) HLA-G5 level were examined...

BACKGROUND: The impact of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections on patient long-term survival after renal transplants is unclear. METHOD: To clarify the long-term outcomes of Japanese renal allograft recipients with HCV infections, we studied the cases of 187 patients (118 males and 69 females; 155 living donor cases, and 32 deceased donor cases; median follow-up period: 250 months) who underwent an initial renal transplant at Kanazawa Medical University from 1974 onwards...
