Endothelial cell (EC) dysfunction is associated with many disease states including deep vein thrombosis (DVT), chronic kidney disease, sepsis and diabetes. Loss of the glycocalyx, a thin glycosaminoglycan (GAG)-rich layer on the EC surface, is a key feature of endothelial dysfunction and increases exposure of EC adhesion molecules such as selectins, which are involved in platelet binding to ECs. Once bound, platelets cause thrombus formation and an increased inflammatory response. We have developed a GAG derived, selectin targeting anti-adhesive coating (termed EC-SEAL) consisting of a dermatan sulfate backbone and multiple selectin-binding peptides designed to bind to inflamed endothelium and prevent platelet binding to create a more quiescent endothelial state...

In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), over-activated T-lymphocytes produce pro-inflammatory cytokines and proliferate in situ in the lower airways and pulmonary parenchyma, contributing substantially to the pathogenesis of the disease. Despite our understanding of the molecular mechanisms by which lymphocytes are activated, we know little about the physiological mechanisms. T-lymphocytes predominantly express delayed rectifier K(+)-channels (Kv1.3) in their plasma membranes and these channels play crucial roles in inducing the lymphocyte activation and proliferation...

BACKGROUND: In complex diseases such as chronic kidney disease (CKD), the risk of clinical complications is determined by interactions between phenotypic and genotypic factors. However, clinical epidemiological studies rarely attempt to analyse the combined effect of large numbers of phenotype and genotype features. We have recently shown that the relaxed linear separability (RLS) model of feature selection can address such complex issues. Here, it is applied to identify risk factors for inflammation in CKD...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) has been associated with impaired host response and increased susceptibility to infections. Leukocyte recruitment during inflammation must be tightly regulated to protect the host against pathogens. FGF23 levels are increased in blood during CKD, and levels of this hormone have been associated with a variety of adverse effects in CKD patients. Here, we have shown that CKD impairs leukocyte recruitment into inflamed tissue and host defense in mice and humans. FGF23 neutralization during CKD in murine models restored leukocyte recruitment and host defense...

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly prescribed for the treatment of pain, inflamation and fever. They are usually well tolerated in healthy persons, but in patients with risk factors (advanced age, renal impairment, heart failure, liver disease, concurrent medications with antihypertensive drugs), NSAIDs can induce serious renal adverse effects. They include sodium and water retention with edema, worsening of heart failure, hypertension, hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, acute kidney injury, chronic kidney disease, renal papillary necrosis and acute interstitial nephritis...

BACKGROUND: CD166, an adhesion molecule of the immunoglobulin superfamily, is one of the crucial effectors that traffic lymphocytes into tissues. Till now, the expression and role of CD166 in the chronic kidney disease remains unknown. OBJECTIVES: In the present study, we are to examine the expression of CD166 in the chronic kidney disease, and to explore its function with CD4+ T cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS: CD166 expression was tested by Flow Cytometry (FACS) in the primary macrophages stimulated with LPS...

Systemic inflammation is a condition intrinsically linked to chronic kidney disease (CKD) and its other typical sequelae, such as acquired immune dysfunction, protein-energy wasting (PEW), and accelerated vascular aging that promote premature cardiovascular disease (CVD) and infections, the two leading causes of death in CKD patients. Inflammation is a major contributor to complications in CKD, and inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein and pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, correlate with underlying causes and consequences of the inflamed uremic phenotype, such as oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, CVD, PEW, and infections, and are sensitive and independent predictors of outcome in CKD...

A 63-year-old woman presented with progredient bilateral breast pain. Her medical history included rheumatoid arthritis, AA amyloidosis and end-stage renal disease treated by peritoneal dialysis. Inflamed skin alterations of the breast and laboratory values suggested mastitis non-puerpuralis but antibiotics did not resolve the symptoms. Sonography and mammography showed severe vessel calcification suggesting calcific uraemic arteriolopathy (calciphylaxis) as a rare complication of chronic kidney disease. Treatment included intensified haemodialysis, thiosulfate application, analgaesia and wound management leading to significant improvement, however, without complete remission...

Aberrant DNA methylation is an emerging characteristic of chronic kidney disease including dialysis patients. It appears to be associated to inflammation. We compared the global DNA methylation status in 10 control subjects compared to 80 dialysis patients (N = 40 on-line hemodiafiltration, N = 40 high-flux hemodialysis) in relation to the dialysis technique and inflammation. Whole blood DNA methylation was assessed with a 5-mc DNA enzyme linked immunosorbent assay Kit. Global DNA methylation was higher in hemodialysis (HD) compared to on-line hemodiafiltration (HDF) patients (0...

Research in recent years has led to the recognition of the importance of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and its relationship to the metabolic syndrome (MS). This has led to a growing interest in the potential prognostic value of NAFLD for adverse cardiovascular disease (CVD) outcome. On the other hand, searching for new risk factors for chronic kidney disease (CKD) development and progression is very important. Growing evidence suggests that the MS is an important factor in the pathogenesis of CKD...

OBJECTIVE: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a prevalent condition in chronic kidney disease (CKD) very often underdiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Electrocardiography (ECG) is an easily accessible LVH diagnostic tool. We evaluated the usefulness of commonly applied ECG criteria for LVH diagnosis in CKD patients. METHODS: Cross-sectional evaluation of 253 nondialysis-dependent CKD stages 3-5 patients (61 [53-67] years; 65% men). Left ventricular mass (LVM) was assessed by echocardiography (ECHO)...

Despite all improvements in transplant medicine, renal transplant recipients have a high risk for cardiovascular mortality. A high prevalence of cardiovascular complications in renal transplant recipients (RTR) is explained by cardiovascular risk factors present before transplantation, in addition to the development of new risk factors as well as worsening of preexisting risk factors after transplantation. A majority ot these patients develop metabolic syndrome within a year after the transplantation. The metabolic syndrome (MS) is associated with impaired renal allograft function and increased insulin resistance...

BACKGROUND: Abdominal fat is a metabolically active tissue which has been associated with cardiovascular events and death in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. We explore here the association between surrogates of abdominal fat and coronary artery calcium score (CACs). METHODS: Cross-sectional analysis of 232 non-dialysis-dependent CKD patients Stages 3-5 (median age 60 [25th-75th percentile 52-67] years; 60% men). Visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and CACs were assessed by computed tomography...

BACKGROUND: Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and its soluble receptor 1 (sVEGFR-1) predict mortality in nondialyzed chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 3-5 patients and prevalent hemodialysis (HD) patients. We investigated determinants of VEGF and sVEGFR-1 as well as their relationship with all-cause mortality in incident dialysis patients. METHODS: In this longitudinal cohort study of 211 CKD 5 patients [64% males, mean age of 54 ± 12 years and median glomerular filtration rate (GFR) 5...

Inflammation contributes to the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Molecules released by the inflamed injured tissue can activate toll-like receptors (TLRs), thereby modulating macrophage and CD4(+) T-cell activity. We propose that in renal fibrogenesis, M2 macrophages are recruited and activated in a T helper subset 2 cell (T(H)2)-prone inflammatory milieu in a MyD88-dependent manner. Mice submitted to unilateral ureteral ligation (UUO) demonstrated an increase in macrophage infiltration with collagen deposition after 7 d...

NAFLD is very common in the general population and its prevalence is increasing worldwide in parallel with the increasing incidences of obesity and metabolic diseases, mainly type 2 diabetes. In some cases, however, the diagnosis of NAFLD remains uncertain because other causes of liver disease are not easy to exclude in patients who are diagnosed with NAFLD after a biochemical or ultrasonographic analysis. Several studies have documented a strong association between NAFLD and traditional and nontraditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic kidney disease (CKD)...

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) has emerged as a growing public health problem worldwide. Increasing recognition of the importance of NAFLD and its association with the features of the metabolic syndrome has stimulated an interest in its putative role in the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Accumulating evidence suggests that NAFLD and CKD share many important cardio-metabolic risk factors and common pathogenetic mechanisms and that NAFLD is associated with an increased prevalence and incidence of CKD...
