BACKGROUND: Diabetic dermopathy is one of the most prevalent skin complications in diabetes patients. Some studies have pointed to association of diabetic dermopathy with retinopathy and nephropathy in patients with type 2 diabetes as microangiopathy presentations, but no rigorous study has been conducted to confirm this association. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated association of diabetic dermopathy with nephropathy and retinopathy in patients with type 2 diabetes referring specialty clinic of Shahrekord...

BACKGROUND: Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a serine protease that is secreted by prostate cells and it is useful as a tumor marker for prostate cancer. OBJECTIVES: In this study, the relationship between some of metabolic factors and serum PSA level was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, patients with urinary symptoms or for screening of the prostate cancer (after 50 years of age or 40 years with a family history of prostate cancer), were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Materials can cause liver and kidney damage which carbon tetrachloride is one of these substances. Medicinal plants and their essential oils and extracts have been used to a large extent as drugs to better control and management of kidney diseases. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of hydro-alcoholic extract of Avicennia marina leaves in the treatment of renal toxicity induced by carbon tetrachloride. METHODS: Forty-two male rats were randomly divided into 6 groups (n = 7): control (taking normal saline, 0...

BACKGROUND: Recent retrospective observational studies suggest that high-potency statin therapy might increase the risk of acute kidney injury, however data on this subject is scares. OBJECTIVES: This study, was designed to investigate the renal tubular cell effect of different doses of atorvastatin to detect the possible aggravation of renal function or morphology of the kidney. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this experimental study 24 male Wistar rats were designated into 4 equal groups and treated as follows...

BACKGROUND: Forkhead box P3 (Foxp3) functions as a master regulator in the development and function of T-regulatory (Treg) cells. Recent studies have shown that autoimmune diseases including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are associated with an imbalance with the Treg cells and T helper (Th) subtypes. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate immunohistochemical expression of Foxp3 positive Treg cells in lupus nephritis (LN) and analyze its association with clinicopathologic parameters...

BACKGROUND: Statins improve prognosis in patients with coronary heart diseases by decreasing the incidence of vascular events. Excess prevalence of hyperhomocysteinemia, an independent risk factor of cardiovascular diseases, has been observed in stable renal transplant recipients (RTRs). OBJECTIVES: The objective of our study was to evaluate the association between atorvastatin administration and plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) levels in RTRs. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a retrospective cross-sectional study in 148 cyclosporine A (CsA) treated stable RTRs...

BACKGROUND: ABO-incompatible (ABOi) kidney-transplantation has very good long-term results, i.e. similar to those observed for living-kidney ABO-compatible transplantation. This is because patients are desensitized at pretransplant using apheresis and rituximab therapy, with tacrolimus-based immunosuppression. OBJECTIVES: To assess the efficacy of a single, pretransplant (Day -1), specific immunoadsorption session using Glycosorb® columns (anti-A or anti-B; Glycorex Sweden) to treat large volumes of plasma (up to 18 L)...

BACKGROUND: In transplantation immunosuppression enhances the appearance of opportunist infections. An ideal balance between the prevention of rejection, the lowest risk of infections and the highest rates of graft survival is a continuous challenge. Lower doses of immunosuppression may diminish the risk of infections, metabolic and hemodynamic complications or even of malignancy, but may expose patients to episodes of acute rejection. New drugs are being developed to improve graft survival at the lowest risk of side effects...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a major world-wide epidemic which has led to a surge of various weight loss-inducing medical or surgical treatments. Orlistat is a gastrointestinal lipase inhibitor used as an adjunct treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus to induce clinically significant weight loss via fat malabsorption. CASE PRESENTATION: We describe a case of a 76-year-old female with past medical history of chronic kidney disease (baseline serum creatinine was 1...

BACKGROUND: The relationship between hematuria and histological lesions, the effect of hematuria on response to steroid therapy, and the outcome in patients with immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) remain undetermined. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to clarify the effect of hematuria on histological findings, response to steroid treatment, and the outcome in IgA nephropathy. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Seventy-five patients with IgAN and proteinuria > 1 g/day and treated with prednisolone were divided into two groups: those with low (≤20/high-power field [HPF]) urinary red blood cell (U-RBC) counts (L-RBC group, n=55) and those with high (>20/HPF) U-RBC counts (H-RBC group, n=20)...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a life threatening condition. Despite intensive care treatment the occurrence cannot be predicted as very little indicators exist for direct measurement when tubular epithelial cell injury takes place. We therefore searched for novel peptide indicators expressed at intracellular level at the proximal kidney tubule for its appearance in urine samples. OBJECTIVES: Establishing a test for urinary C20orf116 protein measurement...

BACKGROUND: Kidney failure and associated mortality is one of the major components of racial disparities in the United States. OBJECTIVES: The current study aimed to investigate the role of distal (socioeconomic status, SES), intermediate (chronic medical diseases), and proximal (health behaviors) factors that may explain Black-White disparities in mortality due to renal diseases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This is a nationally representative prospective cohort with 25 years of follow up...

BACKGROUND: Diabetes is the greatest public health problem and is considered as the silent epidemic of the 21st century. In Iran, there are approximately 1.5 million diabetic patients. Before the discovery of insulin, medicinal plants were widely used for the treatment of diabetes in Iran. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine the indigenous plants used for the treatment of diabetes in Shiraz, southwest of Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Semi-structured direct interviews were conducted with 25 herbalists to identify medicinal plants used to treat diabetes...
