Signaling via the transient receptor potential (TRP) ion channel C6 plays a pivotal role in hereditary and sporadic glomerular kidney disease. Several studies have identified gain-of-function mutations of TRPC6 and report induced expression and enhanced channel activity of TRPC6 in association with glomerular diseases. Interfering with TRPC6 activity may open novel therapeutic pathways. TRPC6 channel activity is controlled by protein expression and stability as well as intracellular trafficking. Identification of regulatory phosphorylation sites in TRPC6 and corresponding protein kinases is essential to understand the regulation of TRPC6 activity and may result in future therapeutic strategies...

Azathioprine, an immunosuppressant which is widely used in the management of the autoimmune neuromuscular disorder. Myasthenia gravis is known to cause myelotoxicity. A 55-year-old male recently diagnosed with myasthenia gravis and chronic kidney disease was put on azathioprine (100 mg/d) along with pyridostigmine and prednisolone. When the treatment was initiated, the hematological reports revealed normal levels of blood count. However, approximately within 3 weeks of continuing the prescribed drugs, the patient was readmitted for complaints of loose watery stools, weakness, and giddiness...

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a bioactive ingredient of green tea, plays a protective role in the cardiovascular system. Homocysteine (Hcy) is a major risk factor for chronic kidney disease and cardiovascular disease. The present study aimed to investigate the role of EGCG in Hcy-induced proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) and its underlying mechanism. We also explored the roles of rennin-angiotensin system (RAS), extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERK1/2), and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (p38 MAPK) in this process...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a world-wide healthcare problem, resulting in increased cardiovascular mortality and often leading to end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) where patients require kidney replacement therapies such as hemodialysis or kidney transplantation. Loss of functional nephrons contributes to the progression of CKD, which can be attenuated but not reversed due to inability to generate new nephrons in human adult kidneys. Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs), by virtue of their unlimited self-renewal and ability to differentiate into cells of all three embryonic germ layers, are attractive sources for kidney regenerative therapies...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD), which affects, not only renal clearance, but also non-renal clearance, is accompanied by a decline in renal function. Although it has been suggested that humoral factors, such as uremic toxins that accumulate in the body under CKD conditions, could be involved in the changes associated with non-renal drug clearance, the overall process is not completely understood. In this study, we report on the role of parathyroid hormone (PTH), a middle molecule uremic toxin, on the expression of drug metabolizing or transporting proteins using rats with secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) as models...

REVIEW

About 30% of the cases of steroid resistant nephrotic syndrome display a genetically determined disease and will not recur after kidney transplant; the other cases with fully or partially immunological pathogenesis display a high risk of post transplant recurrence. Although lots of studies were carried out in the last 50 years the pathogenetic mechanism is still obscure and the therapeutic approach mostly empirical. The cornerstones principles of the therapies are based on removal of a still undefined "permeability factor" through plasma-exchange or other apheresis techniques and inhibition of its synthesis by the immunological system through different drugs...

BACKGROUND: Vascularized composite allotransplantation (VCA) is a rapidly expanding field of transplantation and provides a potential treatment for complex tissue defects. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) shortly incubated with the antibiotic and chemotherapeutic agent mitomycin C (MMC) can suppress allogeneic T cell response and control allograft rejection in various organ transplantation models. MMC-incubated PBMCs (MICs) are currently being tested in a phase I clinical trial in kidney transplant patients...

Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) are potential renal therapeutics. Clinically, results are mixed partly because MSC tropism to kidneys is minimal following infusion. Ultrasound augmentation of the renal microenvironment is becoming increasingly-important in renal MSC therapies. We demonstrated pulsed-focused-ultrasound (pFUS) increases enhanced homing permeability and retention of MSC in mouse kidneys. Here, we characterized the temporal proteomic response to pFUS in mouse kidneys and its association with MSC tropism...

Leishmaniasis remains a serious public health problem in developing countries without effective control, whether by vaccination or chemotherapy. Part of the failure of leishmaniasis control is due to the lack of new less toxic and more effective drugs able to eliminate both the lesions and the parasite. Oxiranes derived from naphthoquinones now being assayed are promising drugs for the treatment of this group of diseases. The predicted pharmacokinetic properties and toxicological profiles of epoxy-α-lapachone and epoxymethoxy-lawsone have now been compared to those of meglumine antimoniate, and histological changes induced by these drugs in noninfected BALB/c mice tissues are described...

INTRODUCTION: Platinum-based chemotherapy (PBC) is a potent antineoplastic treatment, but cisplatin nephrotoxicity is often the limiting factor. Identifying the patients who are at risk for developing platinum-induced renal injury is an important issue. We tested urinary TIMP2·IGFBP7, a new US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared test to assess the risk of acute kidney injury (AKI), in a cohort of patients with malignant neoplastic disease receiving PBC. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 58 patients with malignant neoplastic disease were enrolled in this study, of whom 32 patients had both urine samples and subsequent serum creatinine values available for detecting AKI within 72 hours...

Myofibroblasts are the key players in extracellular matrix remodeling, a core phenomenon in numerous devastating fibrotic diseases. Not only in organ fibrosis, but also the pivotal role of myofibroblasts in tumor progression, invasion and metastasis has recently been highlighted. Myofibroblast targeting has gained tremendous attention in order to inhibit the progression of incurable fibrotic diseases, or to limit the myofibroblast-induced tumor progression and metastasis. In this review, we outline the origin of myofibroblasts, their general characteristics and functions during fibrosis progression in three major organs: liver, kidneys and lungs as well as in cancer...
