Citrinin (CIT), a fungal metabolite causing nephrotoxicity, has a tolerable daily intake (TDI) value of 0.2μg/kg bw. Contamination of food with CIT is not sufficiently known to allow dietary exposure assessment. Urinary biomonitoring data are available from cohorts of several countries. However, kinetic information is lacking for CIT, hampering the use of urinary biomonitoring data to estimate the daily intake. We have investigated the kinetics of CIT after oral intake in two human volunteers on two occasions...

Platinum-based drugs are used to treat a variety of cancers but have many side effects such as nephrotoxicity and neurotoxicity. A folate-decorated nanoparticles system with a good drug payload can selectively deliver drugs into folate receptor (FR)-overexpressing cancer cells to prevent the shortcomings of platinum-based chemotherapy. Here, folate-decorated and near-infrared (NIR) laser-activated nanoparticles (abbreviated as Pt(IV)-FINPs) were prepared via ultrasonic self-assembling of platinum(IV) prodrug c,c,t-Pt(NH3)2Cl2(OOCCH2CH2COOH)2, folic acid (FA)-functionalized lipid DSPE-PEG-FA and NIR fluorescent dye indocyanine green (ICG)...

Nephrotoxicity induced by cisplatin in 30% of all cisplatin treated patients seriously limits its clinical implication as a widely used anticancer agent, and may even cause patients to alter or give up cisplatin therapy. The purpose of this study is to test a protective effect of American ginseng berry extract (AGBE) on cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in mice. In this study, the histopathological changes and elevated levels of serum creatinine (CRE) and urea nitrogen (BUN) caused by cisplatin were significantly diminished by AGBE treatment...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Drug-induced kidney injury (DIKI) is an important and potentially modifiable cause of acute kidney injury (AKI). The reliance on traditional markers of kidney injury to diagnose DIKI impedes early detection. Biomarkers of DIKI that facilitate early diagnosis and the identification of high-risk patients are essential to ameliorate the clinical burden of this complication. RECENT FINDINGS: Recent progress in this area supports the potential utility of several biomarkers for the diagnosis of DIKI, for the prediction of outcomes and also for monitoring responses to potential nephrotoxic or beneficial therapies...

Autophagy has an important renoprotective function and we recently found that autophagy inhibition is involved in cadmium (Cd)-induced nephrotoxicity. Here, we aimed to investigate the protective effect of trehalose (Tre), a novel autophagy activator, against Cd-induced cytotoxicity in primary rat proximal tubular (rPT) cells. First, data showed that Tre treatment significantly decreased Cd-induced apoptotic cell death of rPT cells via inhibiting caspase-dependent apoptotic pathway, evidenced by morphological analysis, flow cytometric and immunoblot assays...

Early and appropriate empiric antibiotics are essential for achieving the best possible outcomes in sepsis. Yet, the choice of antibiotic therapy has become more challenging due to recent reports of nephrotoxicity with the combination of vancomycin and piperacillin/tazobactam, the "workhorse" regimen at many institutions. In this article we assess the evidence for nephrotoxicity and its possible mechanisms, provide recommendations for risk mitigation, address the advantages and disadvantages of alternative antibiotic choices, and suggest areas for future research...

Liposomal amphotericin B is being used increasingly to reduce the burden of kala-azar from the Indian subcontinent. There are studies which have evaluated efficacy and safety of liposomal amphotericin B for visceral leishmaniasis in all age groups. However, the only study that specifically addressed treatment of childhood visceral leishmaniasis did not include all ages or document renal and liver function. We, therefore, felt it was important to reassess the efficacy and safety of single dose liposomal amphotericin B in children and adolescents...

Citrinin (CIT) is a mycotoxin which causes contamination in the food and is associated with different toxic effects. A web search on CIT has been conducted covering the timespan since 1946. The accumulated data indicate that CIT is produced by several fungal strains belonging to Penicillium, Aspergillus and Monascus genera, and is usually found together with another nephrotoxic mycotoxin, ochratoxin A. Although, it is evident that CIT exposure can exert toxic effects on the heart, liver, kidney, as well as reproductive system, the mechanism of CIT-induced toxicity remains largely elusive...

Short-term adjunctive treatment with aminoglycosides in critically ill patients is advocated in guidelines for the empirical treatment of sepsis, despite lack of evidence from randomized trials. A large observational study recently reported more nephrotoxicity and a trend to worse patient outcome in critically ill patients receiving aminoglycosides added to beta-lactam antibiotics. Here, we discuss if a randomized controlled trial to obtain a more definite answer is justified and how it could be performed.
