BACKGROUND: Tolvaptan (TLV) promotes aquaresis; however, little is known about its effect on solute excretion in chronic kidney disease (CKD). METHODS: We retrospectively studied CKD patients with decompensated heart failure (HF) or those with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) receiving TLV. Patients with an increased urine volume of more than twice of daily variance were defined as "responders" in HF. We compared the ability of the urinary osmolality (U-OSM) change and urinary creatinine concentration ([U-Cr]) change to discriminate "responders"...

INTRODUCTION: Coronary microvascular dysfunction (MVD) may contribute to the pathogenesis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Speckle-tracking echocardiography is a feasible and reproducible method for identifying abnormalities in left ventricular (LV) and left atrial (LA) function among HFpEF patients. By assessing myocardial flow reserve (MFR), positron emission tomography (PET) imaging enables quantitative assessment of coronary MVD. We hypothesized that, in patients with risk factors for HFpEF and normal epicardial perfusion on cardiac PET, abnormal MFR is associated with LV diastolic dysfunction (DD) and reduced LV and LA strain...

The patient with chronic kidney disease (CKD) represents an extreme model for arteriosclerosis, vascular calcification, and bone disorders, all of which are also associated with ageing in the general population. These pathological features are also relevant to other common chronic health disorders such as diabetes, and chronic inflammatory and cardiovascular diseases. Although management and interventions for these major risk factors are now incorporated into most public health guidelines (eg, smoking cessation and control of bodyweight and blood pressure, as well as glucose and cholesterol concentrations), some residual cardiovascular risk is not reduced by implementation of these interventions...

Diacerein seems to improve metabolic control and reduce inflammatory marker levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (Type 2 DM), but for participants with chronic kidney disease (CKD) its effect is unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of diacerein vs. placebo on urinary albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and inflammatory cytokines in type 2 DM participants with CKD. Blood pressure (BP) and metabolic control were secondary outcomes. This randomized, placebo-controlled, parallel trial of adjuvant treatment of type 2 DM with diacerein enrolled seventy-two participants with CKD, aged 30-80 years, with glycated hemoglobin levels from 53-97 mmol/mol (7...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Optimal blood pressure (BP) parameters among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have been a matter of debate. This review critically evaluates recent literature to better define the associations of BP parameters and death among individuals with non-dialysis-dependent CKD. RECENT FINDINGS: Observational studies report a "U- or J-shaped" association between BP and all-cause mortality in CKD and caution-intensive BP lowering in the elderly...

Oxygen sensing mechanisms are vital for homeostasis and survival. When oxygen levels are too low (hypoxia), blood flow has to be increased, metabolism reduced, or a combination of both, to counteract tissue damage. These adjustments are regulated by local, humoral, or neural reflex mechanisms. The kidney and the carotid body are both directly sensitive to falls in the partial pressure of oxygen and trigger reflex adjustments and thus act as oxygen sensors. We hypothesize a cooperative oxygen sensing function by both the kidney and carotid body to ensure maintenance of whole body blood flow and tissue oxygen homeostasis...

Relaxin (RLX) is a pleiotropic peptide hormone with marked renal vasodilatory actions which are physiologically important during pregnancy. RLX also has potent antifibrotic actions and is being tested therapeutically in various fibrotic diseases including chronic kidney disease (CKD). Since renal vasodilation may expose the glomerulus to increased blood pressure (PGC), which exacerbates progression of CKD, we assessed the glomerular hemodynamic actions of RLX when administered acutely (75 min; 0.89 µg/100g body weight/hr, iv) and chronically (1...

Background: In the UK, primary care records are electronic and require doctors to ascribe disease codes to direct care plans and facilitate safe prescribing. We investigated factors associated with coding of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients with reduced kidney function and the impact this has on patient management. Methods: We identified patients meeting biochemical criteria for CKD (two estimated glomerular filtration rates <60 mL/min/1.73 m2 taken >90 days apart) from 1039 general practitioner (GP) practices in a UK audit...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Observational and interventional studies provide conflicting evidence regarding optimal blood pressure (BP) control in persons with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recent publications provide additional information to inform therapeutic decision-making. RECENT FINDINGS: Targeting SBP to less than 120 mmHg, versus less than 140 mmHg, decreased cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality in persons with nondiabetic CKD. A meta-analysis of trials testing blood pressure management among nondialysis-dependent CKD patients (15 924 total patients) found more intensive therapies generally reduced mortality in all subgroups...

BACKGROUND: The Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT; ClinicalTrials. gov, NCT01206062) reported reduced cardiovascular events by intensive blood pressure (BP) control among hypertensive patients without diabetes. However, the risk-benefit profile of intensive BP control may differ across estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) levels. METHODS: This is a post-hoc analysis of the SPRINT. Non-diabetic hypertensive adults (n=9,361) with eGFR >20 mL/min/1...

BACKGROUND: Alzheimer's disease (AD) prevalence is increasing globally and typically progresses for several years prior to clinical presentation of dementia. Renal dysfunction and vascular disease have been reported in association with dementia in several cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, and may contribute to AD risk. Experimental and observational studies suggest amyloid-β (Aβ) clearance may be impaired in chronic kidney disease (CKD) indicating a mechanism for increased AD risk...

BACKGROUND: In this study, we aimed to examine the impact of fasting during the month of Ramadan on autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (-ADPKD) patients with normal to near-normal glomerular filtration rate (GFR). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a prospective observational study of patients with ADPKD, the majority of whom had normal or near-normal GFR. Patients were divided into two groups: the fasting group (FG) and the nonfasting group (NFG). Assessments in the NFG were performed 1 week before and 1 month after Ramadan, while FG patients were assessed on the last day of fasting in addition to the abovementioned visits...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects a substantial minority of persons with type 2 diabetes. Analysis of US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) datasets from 2007 through 2012 showed stage 3 or worse disease (estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) < 60 ml/min/1.73 m(2) ) in nearly one in five patients, with increasing age, blood pressure, obesity and levels of glycemia all associated with higher likelihood ((1) ), comparable to findings from surveys from many other areas, which also show micro- or macroalbuminuria to be present in one sixth to one third of diabetic persons ((2) )...

Dietary sodium intake has been associated with progression to chronic kidney disease (CKD) as well as hypertension. A high-salt intake causes renal damage independent of hypertension. Because traditional renal biomarkers are insensitive, it is difficult to detect renal injury induced by a high-salt intake, especially in normotensive patients. Here, we investigated whether newly developed renal biomarkers could be detected earlier than traditional biomarkers under a high-salt intake, in normotensive rats. Male Wistar Kyoto rats (WKY) received a regular (0...

BACKGROUND: The remarkable success of clinical trials in mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) inhibition in heart failure has driven research on the physiological and pathological role(s) of nonepithelial MR expression. MR is widely expressed in the cardiovascular system and is a major determinant of endothelial function, smooth muscle tone, vascular remodeling, fibrosis, and blood pressure. An important new dimension is the appreciation of the role MR plays in immune cells and target organ damage in the heart, kidney and vasculature, and in the development of insulin resistance...

BACKGROUND: Several single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been implicated in the predisposition to chronic kidney disease (CKD). Atherosclerotic disease is deeply involved in the incidence of CKD; however, whether SNPs related to arteriosclerosis are involved in CKD remains unclear. This study aimed to identify SNPs associated with CKD and to examine whether risk allele accumulation is associated with CKD. METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional study using data of 4814 male workers to examine the association between estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and 59 candidate polymorphisms (17 CKD, 42 atherosclerotic diseases)...
