AIMS: Despite several studies reporting similar outcomes for peritoneal dialysis (PD) and hemodialysis (HD), the former is underused worldwide, with a PD prevalence of 15% in Italy. In 2008, the Unit of Nephrology and Dialysis of the Healthcare Trust of the Autonomous Province of Trento implemented a successful PD program which has increased the proportion of PD incident patients from 7 to 47%. We aimed to assess the effect of this extensive use of PD by comparing HD and PD in terms of survival and time-to-transplantation...

INTRODUCTION: Diabetes mellitus is a real health problem and its complications affect many organs including the kidneys. Early diagnosis of diabetic nephropathy allows to treat patients more effectively and with a multidisciplinary approach, to slow its progression in chronic renal failure. Few studies have been conducted in Africa in this field of study. In Chad, we have no statistics on renal disease related to diabetes. That is why we propose to study diabetic nephropathy with the aim of analyzing the profile of diabetic nephropathy in patients at the National Reference General Hospital of N'Djamena (CHAD)...

INTRODUCTION: Proteinuria is always associated with intrinsic kidney disese and is a strong predictor of later development of End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD). As Renin Angiotensin Aldosterone System (RAAS) has a role in mediating proteinuria, inhibitors of this system are renoprotective and patients with refractory proteinuria are put on a combination of these agents. The routinely employed triple blockade of RAAS with Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, ARB and Aldosterone antagonist has many limitations...

OBJECTIVE: Hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) represents a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative diseases, with a worldwide estimated prevalence of 1.3/100,000 [1]. The "pure" form of HSP is a characterized by a progressive spastic paraplegia, often associated with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) (72.4% to 77.6%) [2,3]. However, urologic complications are rarely reported. The aim of this study was to characterize clinical and urodynamic aspects of LUTS following HSP, and to describe treatment and urological complications of LUTS in a large series of HSP patients...

BACKGROUND: End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with uremia and increased systemic inflammation. Alteration of the intestinal microbiota may facilitate translocation of endotoxins into the systemic circulation leading to inflammation. We hypothesized that children with ESRD have an altered intestinal microbiota and increased serum levels of bacterially derived uremic toxins. METHODS: Four groups of subjects were recruited: peritoneal dialysis (PD), hemodialysis (HD), post-kidney transplant and healthy controls...

Meta-analyses and reintroduction of biological knowledge are 2 classic strategies to increase genomewide association study statistical power and overcome the burden of multiple testing. These strategies have empowered the nephrology community to discover new signals associated with kidney function and nephropathies. Here we discuss the current genomewide association study limitations and strategies to dive further into the abyss of yet-to-be discovered kidney function-related factors.

In the clinic, the pathological types of chronic kidney diseases (CKD) are considered references for choosing treatment protocols. From a statistical viewpoint, a non-invasive method to predict pathological types of CKD is a focus of our work. In the current study, following a frequency analysis of the clinical indices of 588 CKD patients in the department of nephrology, a third-grade class-A hospital, a novel theory is proposed: "bi-directional cumulative probability dichotomy". Further, two models for the prediction and differential diagnosis of CKD pathological type are established...

Although infrequent, kidney disease is a potentially serious co-morbidity among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients. The spectrum of renal impairment is very wide from clinically insignificant to end stage renal disease and often requires nephrologist's consultation. Therefore, we established combined renal and HIV care in the HIV Out-Patient Clinic in Warsaw. Medical records of patients consulted by nephrologist from March 2014 to March 2015 were included in analyses. Patients changing medication without consulting the physician or persistently not coming for follow-up visits were defined as non-compliant...
