BACKGROUND: Sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitor (SGLT2i) blocks reabsorption of glucose by inhibiting SGLT2 in kidney, promotes the renal excretion of glucose and improves blood glucose control without requiring insulin secretion. Anti-atherosclerotic effects of SGLT2is have not been fully elucidated until today. METHODS: We retrospectively picked up patients with type 2 diabetes who had been continuously prescribed SGLT2i for 3 months or more between April 2014 and December 2016 by a chart-based analysis, and compared metabolic parameters including coronary risk factors before the SGLT2i treatment with the data at 3 and 6 months after the SGLT2i treatment started...

An elevated level of serum uric acid-hyperuricemia, is strongly associated with the development of gout and chronic kidney disease (CKD) which is often accompanied by a significantly reduced glomerular filtration rate (GFR). In the present study, we investigated the extra-renal elimination of uric acid via the intestine in a healthy pig model and the effect of oral uricase therapy on plasma uric acid concentrations in pigs with induced hyperuricemia and CKD. The experiment was conducted on eleven, ten-week-old pigs (n = 11)...

Tumor lysis syndrome (TLS) is a potentially fatal condition defined both by laboratory and clinical criteria. It is caused by the catabolism of tumor cells which leads to considerable release and elevated levels of phosphate, potassium and uric acid in the bloodstream. These electrolyte derangements predispose patients to renal tubule uric acid precipitation, acute kidney injury, arrhythmias, neuromuscular irritability and even seizures. Although this phenomenon is well described with hematological malignancies, it is also known to occur among solid tumors...

BACKGROUND: Hyperuricemia has been associated with kidney disease and remains controversial with regard to its gender-specific differences and impact in living kidney donation. METHODS: Between 2006 and 2015, charts of live kidney donors who underwent nephrectomy and had a minimum follow-up of 1 year were reviewed. A total of 291 donors were included and divided based on gender-specific pre-donation serum uric acid (SUA) tertiles. Renal functional outcomes included were estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) at 6-month and 1-year follow-up and percentage of donors with a 1-year eGFR <60 mL/min/1...

PURPOSE: Chronic kidney disease is a major public health concern. Serum uric acid (SUA) at high levels was oxidative stress agents, and total bilirubin (T-BiL) at mildly increased levels was potent antioxidants, but whether SUA and T-BiL produce an additive interaction for the risk of renal dysfunction remains unclear. METHODS: The subjects comprised 567 men aged 71 ± 8 (mean ± standard deviation) years and 853 women aged 70 ± 8 years from a rural village...

For the last few years, the role of uric acid in the pathogenesis of the hypertension and chronic kidney disease has drawn attention due to the increasing prevalence of the aforementioned states. Uric acid (UA), formed as a result of purine metabolism, is subject in the renal proximal tubule to filtration, reabsorption and secretion. The mechanisms of deleterious effect of UA on the kidney involve endothelial damage and the increment of hydrostatic pressure in the glomerulus which in turn lead to hypertrophy and glomerulosclerosis...

Hyperuricemia can lead to direct kidney damage. Taurine participates in several renal physiological processes and has been shown as a renoprotective agent. It has been reported that taurine could reduce uric acid levels in diabetic rats, but to date there was no research on the effects of taurine on hyperuricemic rats with kidney injury. In present study, hyperuricemic rat models were induced by intragastric administration of adenine and ethambutol hydrochloride for 10 days, and taurine (1% or 2%) were added in the drinking water 7 days in advance for consecutively 17 days...

A rapid chromatographic method for the simultaneous determination of uric acid (UA) and creatinine (Cr) in human urine is described, using a non-bonded 1.7μm thin-shell (TS1.7-100nm) silica particle prepared by the seeded-growth approach. The new shell particle was characterised by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and BET analysis. TEM reveals 1.5μm solid core and 100nm shell thickness. DLS shows polydispersity index <0.2. Expanded pore size of 88Å and specific surface area of 78m(2)/g were determined by BET...

Hereditary hypouricemia is generally caused by renal hypouricemia, an autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized by impaired renal tubular uric acid transport, or by xanthinuria, a rare autosomal recessive disorder caused by a deficiency of xanthine dehydrogenase (XDH; xanthinuria type I) or by a deficiency of both XDH and aldehyde oxidase (xanthinuria type II). In contrast to renal hypouricemia, which sometimes leads to exercise-induced acute kidney injury (EIAKI), xanthinuria has not been associated with this disorder...

Acute kidney injury (AKI) from leptospirosis is frequently nonoliguric with hypo- or normokalemia. Higher serum potassium levels are observed in non-survivor patients and may have been caused by more severe AKI, metabolic disarrangement, or rhabdomyolysis. An association between the creatine phosphokinase (CPK) level and maximum serum creatinine level has been observed in these patients, which suggests that rhabdomyolysis contributes to severe AKI and hyperkalemia. LipL32 and Lp25 are conserved proteins in pathogenic strains of Leptospira spp...

SCOPE: This study established a hyperuricemic rat model to elucidate the effect of resveratrol on the transport of UA in the kidney. METHODS AND RESULTS: Hyperuricemia was induced in rats through daily oral gavage of a potassium oxonate and UA mixture over 3 weeks. Our results revealed that resveratrol significantly reduced the serum UA levels but not creatinine, c-creative protein, alanine aminotransferase, or aspartate aminotransferase levels in these rats. Furthermore, renal URAT1 and OAT1 mRNA expression were significantly higher in the rats treated with allopurinol than in those with no treatment...

It has been reported that excessive intake of fluoride can induce renal lesions. However, its pathogenesis is still less understood. Therefore, this study was conducted to investigate oxidative damage and the relationships between the oxidative damage and renal lesions in fluoride-treated mice by using the methods of histopathology, biochemistry, flow cytometry and quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). A total of 240 ICR mice were randomly divided into four equal groups (sodium fluoride was given orally at the dose of 0, 12, 24 and 48 mg/kg body weight for 42 days, respectively)...

Hyperuricemia is associated with the development of chronic kidney disease. Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) induced by hyperuricemia is blamed for initiation of renal fibrosis, which is one of the main characters of hyperuricemic nephropathy. Qi-Zhu-Xie-Zhuo-Fang (QZXZF) has been employed clinically for many years to treat patients with hyperuricemic nephropathy, but the mechanism underlying the therapeutic potential remains unclear. In the present study, QZXZF was applied to rats treated with adenine (100mg/kg) and potassium oxonate (300mg/kg) and biochemical estimations, morphology and immunohistochemistry were performed to investigate whether QZXZF can improve hyperuricemia induced renal fibrosis and to explore the possible mechanisms...
