Biogeochemical processes in wetland soils are complex and are driven by a microbiological community that competes for resources and affects the soil chemistry. Depending on the availability of various electron acceptors, the high carbon input to wetland soils can make them important sources of methane production and emissions. There are two significant pathways for methanogenesis: acetoclastic and hydrogenotrophic methanogenesis. The hydrogenotrophic pathway is dependent on the availability of dissolved hydrogen gas (H2 ), and there is significant competition for available H2 ...

PURPOSE: Acetate in hemodialysis solutions exerts inflammatory, vasodilatatory and cardio-depressive effects. Citrate has been proposed as an optimal substitute. The aim of the present trial was the comparison of the hemodynamic and biological parameters on a group of patients dialysed consecutively with 4 acetate-free haemodialysis techniques. METHODS: In a prospective crossover manner, we measured the hemodynamic and biological effects of four acetate-free hemodialysis methods: he acetate-free biofiltration with variable potassium (AFBK) and three methods with a citrate buffer: onventional hemodialysis (HD), on-line hemodiafiltration (HDF) and on-line hemofiltration (HF)...

The regular accumulation of nanoparticles in the liver makes them hepatotoxic and decreases the circulation time, thus reducing their therapeutic effect. Resolving this problem will be significant in improving bioavailability and reducing side effects. In this study, we reduced the phagocytosis of epirubicin (EPI)-loaded folic acid-conjugated pullulan acetate (FPA/EPI) nanoparticles by Kupffer cells (KCs) through internalization and nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB) signal pathway inhibitors, thus allowing development of FPA/EPI nanoparticles as a nanodrug delivery system (NDDS) based on our previous study...

Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) in childhood is poorly explained by routine markers (e.g. urea and creatinine) and is better depicted in adults by other uraemic toxins. This study describes concentrations of representative uraemic toxins in non-dialysis CKD versus healthy children. Methods: In 50 healthy children and 57 children with CKD Stages 1-5 [median estimated glomerular filtration rate 48 (25th-75th percentile 24-71) mL/min/1.73 m 2 ; none on dialysis], serum concentrations of small solutes [symmetric and asymmetric dimethyl-arginine (SDMA and ADMA, respectively)], middle molecules [β2-microglobuline (β2M), complement factor D (CfD)] and protein-bound solutes [ p -cresylglucuronide (pCG), hippuric acid (HA), indole-acetic acid (IAA), indoxyl sulphate (IxS), p -cresyl sulphate (pCS) and 3-carboxy-4-methyl-5-propyl-furanpropionic acid (CMPF)] were measured...

BACKGROUND: Continuous intravenous infusion of controlled drug delivery has certain risks. This could be diligently duplicated devoid of its hassles by using the skin as the port of drug entry. Transdermal drug delivery system is the main route with discrete, self-contained dosage forms when placed on the skin transports the medicament through the skin into the systemic circulation in a well-controlled manner. OBJECTIVE: The rationale of the current work was to formulate and evaluate a transdermal patch of an antihypertensive drug by using different grades of polymers with a view to circumvent the hepatic first pass metabolism and also to escalate its bioavailability...

Protein-bound uremic toxins (PBUTs) are difficult to remove by conventional hemodialysis; a high degree of protein binding reduces the free fraction of toxins and decreases their diffusion across dialyzer membranes. Mechanistic understanding of PBUT kinetics can open new avenues to improve their dialytic removal. We developed a comprehensive model of PBUT kinetics that comprises: (1) a three-compartment patient model, (2) a dialyzer model. The model accounts for dynamic equilibrium between protein, toxin, and the protein-toxin complex...

BACKGROUND: In the United States, hemodialysis (HD) is generally performed via a bicarbonate dialysate. It is not known if small amounts of acid used in dialysate to buffer the bicarbonate can meaningfully contribute to overall buffering administered during HD. We aimed to investigate the metabolism of acetate with use of two different acid buffer concentrates and determine if it effects blood bicarbonate concentrations in HD patients. METHODS: The Acid-Base Composition with use of hemoDialysates (ABChD) trial was a Phase IV, prospective, single blind, randomized, cross-over, 2 week investigation of peridialytic dynamics of acetate and bicarbonate associated with use of acid buffer concentrates...

As the stereoselective plasma protein binding is an important factor for the differences in pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic properties of chiral drugs, we elucidated the binding of (R)-/(S)-HPABA to plasma protein. A UHPLC-MS/MS method was developed and validated to the quantitation and equilibrium dialysis method was applied to the separation of bound and unbound drugs. Protein binding reached equilibrium within 12h of incubation at 37°C. Liquid-liquid extraction with ethyl acetate was used for sample preparation...

The risk of intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is determined by various factors, among them dialysis modality and dialyzer membrane. We conducted a literature search in PubMed on November 1, 2016 and selected relevant randomized controlled and cross-over trials, and prospective and retrospective cohort studies published in English that investigated the association between IDH and dialysis modality and membrane, respectively. This literature search revealed 669 publications on dialysis modality, 64 on dialysis membrane, and 24 on acetate/bicarbonate dialysate...

Hemodialysis patients can acquire buffer base (i.e., bicarbonate and buffer base equivalents of certain organic anions) from the acid and base concentrates of a three-stream, dual-concentrate, bicarbonate-based, dialysis solution delivery machine. The differences between dialysis fluid concentrate systems containing acetic acid versus sodium diacetate in the amount of potential buffering power were reviewed. Any organic anion such as acetate, citrate, or lactate (unless when combined with hydrogen) delivered to the body has the potential of being converted to bicarbonate...

Little is known about potential differences in binding characteristics of protein-bound uremic toxins (PBUTs) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) versus healthy controls. The question arises whether eventual differences are attributed to (i) the elevated levels of competing uremic toxins, and/or (ii) post-translational modifications of albumin. We evaluated the binding characteristics of hippuric acid (HA), indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), indoxyl sulfate (IS), and p-cresylsulfate (pCS) by deriving a binding curve in three distinct conditions: (i) serum from healthy controls (healthy serum), (ii) blank serum from hemodialysis patients (blank HD serum; i...

AIM: Serum levels of 32 kDa-phosphaturic hormone fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) rise early in renal failure in order to keep phosphatemia within the normal range; however, this compensatory mechanism itself contributes to chronic kidney disease-mineral bone disorder. High FGF23 is also associated to left ventricular hypertrophy, vascular calcifications and thus increased cardiovascular risk. The aim of this pilot pre-post study was to evaluate the effects of a single hemodiafiltration session with acetate-free biofiltration (AFB) on FGF23 serum levels...

Fresenius Medical Care's NaturaLyte dialysate has been associated with increased risk of sudden cardiac death by causing metabolic alkalosis from its acetate content based on retrospective data using pre-dialysis bicarbonate levels only. The study objective was to measure inter/intra-dialytic changes in serum bicarbonate and degree of alkalosis conferred by varying concentrations of NaturaLyte bicarbonate dialysate. Thirty-nine hemodialysis patients were divided into four groups based on prescribed bicarbonate dialysate concentrations; Group 1 (N = 9): 30-32 mEq/L, Group 2 (N = 5): 33-34 mEq/L, Group 3 (N = 10): 35-36 mEq/L, Group 4 (N = 15): 37-40 mEq/L...
