Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is characterized by a multifaceted pathogenesis and a heterogeneous clinical expression. The kidney involvement is almost unavoidable in all forms of SLE with chronic evolution, 75% of patients developing renal lesions defined as lupus nephritis (LN) - a glomerulonephritis with an extremely diverse lesion spectrum. The present study aimed to reevaluate a series of cases diagnosed as LN, focusing on the histological features in correlation with the level of activity and chronicity...

Acute dissection of thoracic aorta carries a risk of renal ischemia followed by the development of a kidney failure. The optimal surgical and nonsurgical management of these patients, timing of intervention, and the factors predicting renal recovery are not well delineated and remain controversial. We present a case of acute type B thoracic aortic dissection with left kidney ischemia. Evaluation of renal function was performed by the means of internationally accepted Risk, Injury, Failure, Loss of kidney function, End stage kidney disease and Acute Kidney Injury Network classifications for acute kidney injury, renal duplex sonography, and intravascular ultrasound that demonstrated left renal artery dissection with a flap completely compressing the true lumen...

BACKGROUND: Concerns about metformin-associated lactic acidosis (MALA) prohibit the use of metformin in a large subset of diabetic patients, mostly in patients with chronic kidney disease. Increasing evidence suggests that the current safety regulations may be overly restrictive. OBJECTIVES: To examine the association between chronic metformin treatment and lactate level in acute illness on the first day of admission to an internal medicine ward. METHODS: We compared diabetic and non-diabetic hospitalized patients treated or not treated with metformin in different sets of kidney function...

One third of healthy willing living kidney donors are rejected due to ABO blood group incompatibility and donor specific antibody. This increases pre-transplant dialysis duration leading to increased morbidity and mortality on the kidney transplantation waiting list. Over the last decade kidney paired donation is most rapidly increased source of living kidney donors. In a kidney transplantation program dominated by living donor kidney transplantation, kidney paired donation is a legal and valid alternative strategy to increase living donor kidney transplantation...

Branching morphogenesis of developing organs requires coordinated but poorly understood changes in epithelial cell-cell adhesion and cell motility. We report that Btbd7 is a crucial regulator of branching morphogenesis in vivo. Btbd7 levels are elevated in peripheral cells of branching epithelial end buds, where it enhances cell motility and cell-cell adhesion dynamics. Genetic ablation of Btbd7 in mice disrupts branching morphogenesis of salivary gland, lung, and kidney. Btbd7 knockout results in more tightly packed outer bud cells, which display stronger E-cadherin localization, reduced cell motility, and decreased dynamics of transient cell separations associated with cleft formation; inner bud cells remain unaffected...

BACKGROUND: Melatonin synchronizes central but also peripheral oscillators (fetal adrenal gland, pancreas, liver, kidney, heart, lung, fat, gut, etc.), allowing temporal organization of biological functions through circadian rhythms (24-hour cycles) in relation to periodic environmental changes and therefore adaptation of the individual to his/her internal and external environment. Measures of melatonin are considered the best peripheral indices of human circadian timing based on an internal 24-hour clock...

This paper addresses the problem of the low viability of cells during traditional cryopreservation by developing multiple emulsion-based carriers for the encapsulation and cryopreservation of cells. Multiple emulsions are hierarchically structured dispersed systems of "droplets in drops", which allow bioactive ingredients to be encapsulated. The problem of low survival rates refers to the stage of their freezing-thawing in traditional suspensions. During freezing-thawing processes, irreversible damage to cells occurs due to the formation of ice crystals, cell dehydration, and cryoprotectants' toxicity...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to show the importance of hemodialysis as an active method in treatment of acute acetic acid poisonings. Its main role is to support the renal function during the state of the intoxication when patients develop acute renal failure. METHODS: We analyzed data from a 10-year period, a total of 71 patients who ingested acetic acid, either intentionally or accidentally. Patients with a need of hemodialysis (HD) treatment underwent 3- to 4-hour HD sessions every day or every second day, according to clinical assessment, as needed, until recovery of kidney function...

Introduction: Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is a sensory motor disorder. Patients with this syndrome have serious and uncontrollable desire to move their legs, which is mostly due to an uncomfortable feeling intensified when they are motionless. It may be a genetic disorder or secondary to iron deficiency, neurodegenerations, pregnancy, some drugs and severe kidney diseases. Objectives: This study was designed to find out the prevalence and its risk factors of RLS in hemodialysis patients. Patients and Methods: This multicenter cross-sectional study was done on 260 hemodialysis patients...

Urine pH has been thought to be an important factor that can modulate kidney stone formation. Nevertheless, there was no systematic evaluation of such pH effect. Our present study thus addressed effects of differential urine pH (4.0-8.0) on calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystallization, crystal-cell adhesion, crystal internalization into renal tubular cells, and binding of apical membrane proteins to the crystals. Microscopic examination revealed that CaOx monohydrate (COM), the pathogenic form, was crystallized with greatest size, number and total mass at pH 4...
