renal implications of diarrhoea conditions

J Segalés, J Piella, E Marco, E M Mateu-de-Antonio, E Espuña, M Domingo
In August 1995, the first case of porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome was diagnosed in the north-eastern part of Spain; the pig showed characteristic dermal and renal lesions. Between then and January 1996, nine further animals from five different herds were diagnosed; they showed signs of anorexia, depression and, sometimes, pyrexia. Diarrhoea, Glässer's disease, conjunctivitis and gastric ulcers also occurred on the farms where the diagnoses were made. The affected pigs died of renal failure with diffuse fibrinous glomerulonephritis and a systemic necrotising vasculitis...

Diabetes, diarrhoea, renal failure and glucocorticoid therapy have all been identified as independent risk factors for cataract. Increased post-translational modification of proteins, leading to inactivation of enzymes and induction of conformational changes within proteins could result in lens opacification and cataract. Aspirin has been associated with many beneficial effects, including protection against cataract, in-vivo. alpha-Crystallin has been shown to act as a molecular chaperone in-vitro. This lenticular protein prevented the thermal aggregation of other lens proteins in-vitro and has sequence and functional homology with the small heat shock proteins...
