Lithocholic acid (LCA) is a secondary bile acid that is selectively toxic to human neuroblastoma, breast and prostate cancer cells, whilst sparing normal cells. We previously reported that LCA inhibited cell viability and proliferation and induced apoptosis and necrosis of androgen-dependent LNCaP and androgen-independent PC-3 human prostate cancer cells. In the present study, we investigated the roles of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress, autophagy and mitochondrial dysfunction in the toxicity of LCA in PC-3 and autophagy deficient, androgen-independent DU-145 cells...

Hillel Sternlicht, George L Bakris
Hypertension is the second most common cause of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is a potentiator of kidney failure when accompanying disease. CKD is a common cause of resistant hypertension. Nephropathy progression has dramatically slowed over the past 3 decades from an average of 8 to between 2-3 mL/min per year regardless of diabetes status. The incidence of very high albuminuria as well as progression from high albuminuria very high albuminuria has substantially decreased over the past 3 decades. This improvement relates to better blood pressure control using agents that slow nephropathy as well as better glycemic and cholesterol control...

BACKGROUND: Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is not associated with overt neuropsychiatric symptoms but rather with subtle changes in psychometric and/or neurophysiologic tests. We aimed to diagnose MHE in children with extrahepatic portal vein obstruction (EHPVO) and to evaluate the effect of lactulose on MHE. METHODS: A prospective study was carried out on 30 patients with EHPVO (21 males; mean age 10±2.5 years). The study was carried out in the Pediatric Hepatology Unit, Cairo University Pediatric Hospital, Cairo, Egypt, between 2011 and 2013...

Morbidly adherent placenta (MAP) is a growing concern currently and is still a diagnostic challenge for obstetricians. As emergency hysterectomy due to unscheduled delivery in MAP carries significant risks, we aimed to evaluate whether first and second trimester serum analytes may be used in the prediction of MAP requiring hysterectomy. A retrospective chart review of all identified cases of placenta previa totalis with and without MAP was performed. A total of 316 pregnant women diagnosed as placenta previa totalis were identified and included in the analysis...

BACKGROUND: Dentine hypersensitivity is a common problem attributed by patent dentinal tubules. Ingredients incorporated in toothpastes aim to occlude patent dentinal tubules to minimise the dentine hypersensitivity. However, frequent consumption of acidic soft drinks may reverse the dentinal tubules occlusion. In this in vitro study, the efficacy of dentinal tubules occluded by commercially available toothpastes to withstand different duration of an acidic soft drink challenge was investigated...

Regression to the mean (RTM) describes the tendency for an extreme measurement on 1 occasion to become less extreme when measured again. RTM may affect clinical trial data interpretation when the outcome measure has high variability. We investigated RTM in the SYMPLICITY HTN-3 (Renal Denervation in Patients With Uncontrolled Hypertension) trial of renal denervation versus a sham procedure. Analysis of covariance was performed on the 6-month change in systolic blood pressure, estimating a mean treatment difference of -4...

Although intensive hemodialysis (HD) can address important clinical problems, increasing treatment also introduces risks. In this review, we assess risks pertaining to 6 domains: vascular access complications, infection, mortality, loss of residual kidney function, solute balance, and patient and care partner burden. In the Frequent Hemodialysis Network (FHN) trials, short daily and nocturnal schedules increased the incidence of access complications, although the incidence of access loss was not statistically higher...

The prevalence of cardiovascular disease, including cardiac arrhythmia, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy, and valvular heart disease, is higher in hemodialysis (HD) patients than in the US resident population. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in HD patients and the principal discharge diagnosis accompanying 1 in 4 hospital admissions. Furthermore, the rate of hospital admissions for either heart failure or fluid overload is persistently high despite widespread use of β-blockers and renin-angiotensin system inhibitors and attempts to manage fluid overload with ultrafiltration...

Hypertension is a cardinal feature of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Hypertensive nephropathy is the primary cause of ESRD for nearly 30% of patients, and the prevalence of hypertension is >85% in new patients with ESRD. In contemporary hemodialysis (HD) patients, mean predialysis systolic blood pressure (SBP) is nearly 150mmHg, and about 70%, 50%, and 40% use β-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and renin-angiotensin system inhibitors, respectively. Predialysis SBP generally exhibits a U-shaped association with mortality risk...

Renal denervation started out as a very promising approach to treat resistant hypertension with a very strong conceptual and basic science frame work from Gerald DiBona's lab and extending into the early non shame clinical studies demonstrating proof of concept in SYMPLICITY HTN-1 and 2. SYMPLICITY-HTN 3 a properly done, sham control trial failed to show a benefit on further reduction of BP compared to the sham group. The conclusion the procedure doesn't work. How could this be-it was clearly effective in animal models but why not in man...

OBJECTIVE: Elevated serum aldosterone can be vasculotoxic and facilitates cardiorenal damage. Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone inhibitors (RAASi) reduce serum aldosterone levels and/or block its effects but can cause hyperkalemia (HK). Patiromer, a nonabsorbed potassium binder, decreases serum potassium (K) in CKD patients on RAASi. We examined the effect of patiromer on serum aldosterone levels, plasma renin activity (PRA), systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and urinary albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) in CKD patients on RAASi with HK (serum K 5...
