Studies of visit-to-visit office blood pressure (BP) variability (OBPV) as a predictor of cardiovascular events and death in high-risk patients treated to lower BP targets are lacking. We conducted a post hoc analysis of SPRINT (Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial), a well-characterized cohort of participants randomized to intensive (<120 mm Hg) or standard (<140 mm Hg) systolic BP targets. We defined OBPV as the coefficient of variation of the systolic BP using measurements taken during the 3-,6-, 9-, and 12-month study visits...

OBJECTIVES: Renal transplant is the criterion standard for treatment of end-stage renal disease. The effects of disparities between men and women on renal transplant outcomes have been evaluated in many studies but with debatable results. It has been suggested that female kidney donors have poor outcomes after transplant compared with male kidney donors, especially when implanted in a male recipient. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effects of sex on living-donor kidney transplant outcome...

BACKGROUND: In the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) randomized trial 30904, nephron-sparing surgery (NSS) reduced the risk of renal dysfunction compared with radical nephrectomy (RN); however, overall survival was better in the RN arm. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether treatment effect on the risk of renal dysfunction and all-cause mortality differed in magnitude across levels of baseline variables. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: This was an exploratory subgroup analysis of EORTC 30904, a phase 3 randomized trial conducted in patients with a small (≤5cm) renal mass and normal contralateral kidney...

BACKGROUND: Asians have among the highest prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) or end-stage renal disease in the world. A risk score capable of identifying high risk individuals at the primary care level could allow targeted therapy to prevent future development of CKD. Risk scores for new CKD have been developed in US general populations, but the impact of various risks factors for development of CKD may differ in Asian subjects. In this study, we aimed to develop risk models and simplified risk scores to predict the development of decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at 10 years in an Asian general population using readily obtainable clinical and laboratory parameters...

Premature menopause defined as secondary amenorrhea is common in women with kidney disease. Moreover, the aging population has resulted in increasing numbers of postmenopausal women with kidney disease. Though the pathophysiology is poorly understood, kidney transplantation and more frequent hemodialysis can restore menses and fertility, highlighting the challenges of diagnosing and managing the menopausal transition in the female population with kidney disease. Postmenopausal sex hormone levels affect renovascular physiology, but the clinical impact of menopause on kidney function is unclear...

BACKGROUND: Concerns were raised about pneumonia development from benzodiazepines (BZDs) and Z-drugs, but direct evidence is limited, conflicting and without examining the highly susceptible patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) nor specifying the risk for different drug utilizations. This study aimed to investigate whether use of BZDs and Z-drugs was each associated with an increased risk of pneumonia in a CKD population. METHODS: We performed a nested case-control study of 36,880 CKD patients analyzing the Taiwan National Health Insurance Database between 01/1/2000 and 12/31/2011...

AIM: Cancer and chronic kidney disease are known to be associated. The way in which a history of cancer can influence outcome in dialysis is not well described. This work aimed to evaluate survival of cancer patients starting chronic dialysis after their diagnosis of cancer. METHODS: We merged data from cancer registries and a dialysis registry, and explored patients' charts. RESULTS: Between January 2001 and December 2008, 74 patients with incident cancer in the two-counties-study-area (Calvados and Manche) started chronic dialysis after their diagnosis of cancer...

BACKGROUND: Contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) is a major drawback in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Significant uricosuria has been reported following contrast exposure. Allopurinol-a xanthine oxidase inhibitor-has been suggested to prevent the formation of oxygen-free radicals, which may contribute to CIN. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the possible efficacy of allopurinol in preventing CIN. METHODS: In this double-blind placebo-controlled trial, patients with an estimated glomerular filtration rate ≥60 mL/min who were admitted for elective PCI, were randomized to receive either allopurinol 600 mg or a placebo administered 24 h before the procedure, and again immediately before the procedure...

BACKGROUND: Chronic renal disease (CKD) is a determinant of coronary artery calcification (CAC), which is a predictor of cardiovascular events. However, in a population without CKD, the association between CAC and renal function is unclear. CAC is affected by sex. This study aimed to determine whether serum cystatin C, a sensitive marker of kidney function, or sex differences are associated with CAC in patients without CKD. METHODS: We evaluated 456 consecutive patients (61±13 years, 42% women) without CKD and evidence of coronary artery disease...

BACKGROUND: Sexual difference has been shown in the pathogenesis of chronic kidney disease induced by hypertension. Females are protected from hypertension and related end-organ damage. Augmentation of renal proximal tubular angiotensinogen (AGT) expression can promote intrarenal angiotensin formation and the development of associated hypertension and kidney injury. Female rodents exhibit lower intrarenal AGT levels than males under normal conditions, suggesting that the suppressed intrarenal AGT production by programmed mechanisms in females may provide protection from these diseases...

Monitoring metabolic adaptation to chronic kidney disease (CKD) early in the time course of the disease is challenging. As a non-invasive technique, analysis of exhaled breath profiles is especially attractive in children. Up to now, no reports on breath profiles in this patient cohort are available. 116 pediatric subjects suffering from mild-to-moderate CKD (n = 48) or having a functional renal transplant KTx (n = 8) and healthy controls (n = 60) matched for age and sex were investigated. Non-invasive quantitative analysis of exhaled breath profiles by means of a highly sensitive online mass spectrometric technique (PTR-ToF) was used...

Little is known regarding the ways in which chronic kidney disease (CKD) prevalence and progression differ between the sexes. Still less is known regarding how social disparities between men and women may affect access to care for CKD. In this review, we briefly describe biological sex differences, noting how these differences currently do not influence CKD management recommendations. We then describe what is known within the published literature regarding differences in CKD epidemiology between sexes; namely prevalence, progression, and access to treatment throughout the major world regions...

BACKGROUND: While body mass index (BMI) is the most widely used anthropometric measure, its association with all-cause mortality is generally J-shaped or U-shaped. A body shape index (ABSI) is a recently formulated anthropometric measure that shows linear relationship to all-cause mortality, especially in Caucasian cohorts. We aimed to address the relationship between ABSI and all-cause mortality in Asians and to assess the influence of sex difference and of chronic kidney disease (CKD) on this relationship...
