M Šeruga, J Makuc, M Završnik, I Cilenšek, R Ekart, D Petrovič
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is the leading cause of endstage renal disease (ESRD) in developed countries. Several environmental and genetic factors predict the development and progression of DN. The renin-angiotensin system was demonstrated to be involved in the development of DN. We evaluated the association between rs4340 of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene and DN in Caucasians with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in 276 Slovenian patients with T2DM who had DN, and 375 patients without clinical signs of DN...

OBJECTIVE: To examine trends in methodological quality of studies of endstage renal disease risk in lupus nephritis, 1970-2015. METHODS: We assessed quality using the Newcastle-Ottawa scale for observational studies, and the Cochrane Collaboration's risk-of-bias tool for trials. RESULTS: In observational studies, description of enrollment criteria was high but decreased over time. Adequacy of followup was low but improved. Inception cohorts and community-based studies were uncommon...

BACKGROUND: The economic burden of acute kidney injury (AKI) is not well understood. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the effects of AKI on hospitalization costs and length of stay (LOS). DESIGN: Using data from the 2012 National Inpatient Sample, we compared hospitalization costs and LOS with and without AKI. We used a generalized linear model with a gamma distribution and a log link fitted to AKI to adjust for demographics, hospital differences, and comorbidities...

BACKGROUND: Transplantation (NTX) associated ischemia-reperfusion-mechanisms and the predisposition for insulin resistance are discussed as causes of a posttransplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM). Furthermore, immunosuppressants can have a damaging effect on insulin secretion. METHODS: 55 metabolically healthy patients with an endstage renal disease (age 52 ± 14 years, body mass index 27 ± 5 kg / m(2), blood pressure 137 ± 15/82 ± 11 mmHg) were included in a prospectively cohort study...

Hemodialysis (HD), despite being the most common treatment modality for endstage renal disease (ESRD), still carries a mortality rate higher than 20-50%/year resulting from various comorbidities. The aim of this study was to measure the plasma level of pentraxin-3 (PTX-3) in patients on maintenance HD and to assess its relationships to comorbidities such as malnutrition and associated comorbid diseases. This case-control study included 50 HD patients, 30 ESRD patients, and 30 healthy controls. HD patients were classified into different subgroups according to the Davies comorbidity index and malnutrition score...

During the last decade, the armamentarium for glucose-lowering drugs has increased enormously by the development of DPP-4 inhibitors, GLP-1 receptor agonists and SGLT2 inhibitors, allowing individualization of antidiabetic therapy for patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Some combinations can now be used without an increased risk for severe hypoglycemia and weight gain. Following a request of the US Food and Drug Administration, many large cardiovascular (CV) outcome studies have been performed in patients with longstanding disease and established CV disease...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is independently associated with the development of chronic kidney disease, endstage kidney disease and increased all-cause and cardiovascular-specific mortality. The severity of the renal insult and the development of multiple AKI episodes increase the risk of occurrence of these outcomes. Despite these long-term effects, only a minority of patients receive nephrologist follow up after an episode of AKI; those that do may have improved outcomes. Furthermore, relatively simple quality improvement strategies have the potential to change this status quo...

Chronic kidney diseases (CKD) have been cited as major risk factors not only for endstage renal failure, but also for the development of cardiovascular diseases and death. In the former criteria for CKD diagnosis (NKF K/DOQI, 2002), estimation of the severity of CKD was simply based on GFR, in order for it to be widely and easily understood by general physicians and patients. Therefore, the use of the CKD guideline without information on the causes and grades of albuminuria was limited for estimation of the prognosis...

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) nephropathy (IgAN) is the most common biopsy-proven primary glomerular disease in the world and a major contributor to the worldwide burden of endstage renal failure, with a wide geographical variation. To determine the incidence, clinical profile and histological pattern of IgAN in our institute, we reviewed all the patients who had native kidney biopsies with the diagnosis of primary IgAN during the period from 1998 to 2009 in the context of the clinical features. A total of 116 patients with IgAN were finally analyzed; 85 (73%) of the patients were male, the mean age of the patients was 29...

BACKGROUND: Blood pressure (BP) control may have different effects on cardiovascular (CV) and renal outcomes in diabetes. We examined the impact of systolic BP (SBP) on renal and CV outcomes in a post hoc analysis in the Olmesartan Reducing Incidence of Endstage Renal Disease in Diabetic Nephropathy Trial. METHODS: We stratified mean follow-up SBP into three categories (≤130, 131-140 and >140 mmHg) and used a Cox regression model to estimate the hazard ratio (HR, 95% confidence interval) for the outcomes...

Few studies evaluated the effects of pentoxifylline on hard endpoints in patients with predialysis stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD). Thus, we tried to explore the effects of pentoxifylline and its interaction with renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) blockade on the development of endstage renal disease (ESRD) and mortality. This nationwide cohort study retrospectively included patients who had a serum creatinine level of >6 mg/dL and received erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) between 2000 and 2010...

OBJECTIVES: There is no correlation between alanine aminotransferase levels, viral load, and histologic findings at dialysis in patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection. Identification of the severity of hepatitis C-related liver disease before transplant could provide valuable data about the risk for liverrelated mortality after transplant. In this study, we aimed to identify the severity of liver disease in endstage renal disease patients with chronic hepatitis C virus infection, the progression of hepatic histopathology after kidney transplant, and whether immunosuppressive therapy affected posttransplant viral replication and hepatic histology...

AIMS: Phase 3 trial data indicate that treatment of chronic tophaceous gout with pegloticase, a recombinant uricase conjugated to polyethylene glycol, does not reduce estimated glomerular filtration rate in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients and that pegloticase therapeutics are independent of CKD stages 1 - 4. We determined the pharmacokinetics/pharmacodynamics of pegloticase after a single-dose in non-gout subjects with stage 5 CKD receiving hemodialysis. METHODS: In this open-label phase 1 study, 12 subjects received a single intravenous dose of pegloticase 8 mg 3 hours prior to hemodialysis...
