N-terminal-pro-B-type-natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) was a predictive marker of cardiovascular disease (CVD)-related death in chronic dialysis patients. NT-proBNP was also correlated with markers of inflammation, malnutrition and protein-energy wasting. We hypothesized whether NT-proBNP was also associated with non-CVD death in chronic dialysis patients. A prospective observational study for incidence of death in chronic dialysis patients was conducted. Prevalent chronic dialysis patients (n = 1310) were enrolled and followed for 24 months...

ETHNOPHARMACOLOGY RELEVANCE: Bufei Yishen formula (BYF), a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), has been extensively applied in clinical treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and provides an effective treatment strategy for the syndrome of lung-kidney qi deficiency in COPD patients. Here, we investigated its anti-COPD mechanism in COPD rats in relation to the balance between T helper (Th) 17 cells and regulatory T (Treg) cells. METHODS: Rat model of cigarette smoke- and bacterial infection-induced COPD was established, and orally treated with BYF for 12 consecutive weeks...

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is widely diffused in general population, and the likelihood that an infected individual is affected by other disesases is high. A lot of epidemiological and explicative studies, even if with different levels of evidence, reported a potential effect of HCV infection -by direct and indirect mechanisms- on the pathogenesis of extrahepatic comorbidities related to dysregulation of the immune system, or cardiometabolic comorbidities like diabetes, neuropsychiatric disorders, chronic kidney disease, cardiovascular alterations, etc...

Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is the primary cause of chronic respiratory disease in poultry. We investigated the protective efficacy of the live attenuated ts-11 and 6/85 MG vaccines against a local MG strain, and in order to enhance symptoms and mimic a typical field situation, we co-infected birds with a virulent strain of QX-like infectious bronchitis virus (IBV). Both vaccines showed similar ability to protect infected chickens from clinical signs, although ts-11 performed slightly better. Despite the lower protection against clinical disease, 6/85-vaccinated birds had significantly (P≤0...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Postoperative Urinary Retention (POUR) is a very common post-operative complication of all surgeries (5 - 70%) that may lead to complications such as urinary tract infection (UTI), bladder over-distention, autonomic dysregulation, and increased postoperative length of stay (LOS). Within the field of spine surgery, the reported incidence of POUR is highly variable (5.6 - 38%). Lack of clear stratification of surgical level, spinal pathology, and inadequate sample size is a major limitation of available studies concerning POUR following spine surgery that may lead to inconsistency in the incidence of POUR and the ability to model its occurrence and consequences...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: The recommended combination of pangenotypic direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) for the treatment of hepatitis C virus (HCV) associates the co-formulation of 2 or 3 second-generation DAAs. In the so-called "special populations" defined as patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), HCV/HIV co-infection, HCV/HBV co-infection and an unsuccessful previous DAA regimen, these combinations have a high antiviral potency (sustained virologic response (SVR) > 95%), fair tolerance and a reduced pill burden...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bacteremia is a serious infection that can result in significant morbidity and mortality. A retrospective cohort study was conducted to determine the predictors of mortality in patient with MRSA bacteremia correlating with clinical, phenotypic and genotypic characteristics of the relevant strains. Most of the bacteremia cases were healthcare-associated (P < 0.0001). Older age (P < 0.0001) and comorbidities (diabetes mellitus, hypertension and chronic kidney disease) were identified as the risk factors for MRSA bacteremia...

Background: Viral infections can trigger chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the urine virome may inform risk. The Natural History of APOL1-Associated Nephropathy Study (NHAANS) reported that urine JC polyomavirus (JCPyV) associated with a lower risk of APOL1-associated nephropathy in African Americans. Herein, association was assessed between urine JCPyV with CKD in African Americans independent from the APOL1 genotype. Methods: Quantitative polymerase chain reaction was performed for urinary detection of JCPyV and BK polyoma virus (BKPyV) in 200 newly recruited nondiabetic African Americans...

Dengue is a significant health problem in many countries. In recent years, complications involving specific organ systems have been increasingly observed and appear to have important effects on overall dengue related morbidity and mortality. Renal involvement in dengue could potentially cause increased mortality and long term effects. We review the different renal manifestations associated with dengue virus infections and explore their potential underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. The serum electrolyte and urinary abnormalities seen in dengue are discussed and Acute Kidney Injury (AKI) due to acute glomerulonephritis, rhabdomyolysis and haemolytic uraemic syndrome following dengue are explored...

Infection is a major cause of mortality in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Although immune dysfunction is a risk factor for infection in CKD patients, its causes are not fully elucidated. In the present study, we evaluated whether p-cresyl sulfate (pCS), an intestinal bacteria-derived uremic toxin, was involved in immune dysfunction in CKD. We used osmotic pumps to establish adenine-induced renal dysfunction mice with a chronically high blood pCS concentration. Analysis of lymphocyte subsets revealed that pCS significantly reduced peripheral B cells in renal dysfunction mice...

Evolutionary medicine has proven helpful to understand the origin of human disease, e.g. in identifying causal roles of recent environmental changes impacting on human physiology (environment-phenotype mismatch). In contrast, diseases affecting only a limited number of members of a species often originate from evolutionary trade-offs for usually physiologic adaptations assuring reproductive success in the context of extrinsic threats. For example, the G1 and G2 variants of the APOL1 gene supporting control of Trypanosoma infection come with the trade-off that they promote the progression of kidney disease...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the most common complications in acutely ill patients. The epidemiology, clinical presentation, and outcome vary between patients and countries. SUMMARY: Patients with AKI often exhibit multiple organ dysfunction that is caused, in part, by marked cross-talk between the kidney and other organs and tissues. These deleterious interactions arise, at least in part, from systemic inflammatory changes, an increased cytokine load, increases in leukocyte trafficking and activation of neurohormonal processes...

BACKGROUND: Electronic (e)-cigarettes theoretically may be safer than conventional tobacco. However, our prior studies demonstrated direct adverse effects of e-cigarette vapor (EV) on airway cells, including decreased viability and function. We hypothesize that repetitive, chronic inhalation of EV will diminish airway barrier function, leading to inflammatory protein release into circulation, creating a systemic inflammatory state, ultimately leading to distant organ injury and dysfunction...
