BACKGROUND: In recognition of the challenges inherent with the use of single-item indices for the diagnosis of malnutrition-inflammation morbidity in pediatric dialysis patients, to enhance accuracy, we validated a composite scoring system in a pilot study. The objective malnutrition-inflammation score seeks to validate the use of a composite scoring system as a tool for assessing malnutrition-inflammation burden in a pediatric dialysis population. METHODS: We enrolled 20 patients on hemodialysis (n = 14) and peritoneal dialysis (n = 6) over a period of 12 months...

OBJECTIVE: End stage renal disease (ESRD) has a high worldwide prevalence and incidence. Peritonitis is one of the leading causes of hospitalization in peritoneal dialysis patients. Although inflammatory markers show increased inflammatory responses, cellular immune response was decreased in ESRD patients. Leptin is an adipocyte-derived hormone that has activity in energy, nutrition and immune system. Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (N/L) was emerged as a predictive and prognostic criterion in many instances...

BACKGROUND: Recommendations for secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) consider that a "one-size-fits-all" target enables efficacy of care. In routine clinical practice, SHPT continues to pose diagnosis and treatment challenges. One hypothesis that could explain these difficulties is that dialysis population with SHPT is not homogeneous. METHODS: EPHEYL is a prospective, multicenter, pharmacoepidemiological study including chronic dialysis patients (≥ 3 months) with newly SHPT diagnosis, i...

BACKGROUND: Peritoneal dialysis (PD) therapy is known to induce morphological and functional changes in the peritoneal membrane. Long-term exposure to conventional bio-incompatible dialysate and peritonitis is the main etiology of inflammation. Consequently, the peritoneal membrane undergoes structural changes, including angiogenesis, fibrosis, and hyalinizing vasculopathy, which ultimately results in technique failure. The epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) of mesothelial cells (MCs) plays an important role during the above process; however, the clinical parameters associated with the EMT process of MCs remain to be explored...

BACKGROUND: Human serum albumin is composed of human mercaptoalbumin (HMA) with cysteine residues having reducing powers and of oxidized human non-mercaptoalbumin. Previously, we reported that a lower HMA level is closely related to serious cardiovascular disease (CVD) incidence and mortality among hemodialysis patients. However, the relationship between HMA level and CVD incidence among peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients is unclear. METHODS: We measured the redox state of human serum albumin using high-performance liquid chromatography in 30 continuous ambulatory PD patients...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a major public health problem. It is therefore important to slow its progression and to treat its complications. Regardless of the causal nephropathy, arterial hypertension and proteinuria are the major progression factors of CKD. Thus, optimal control of blood pressure, reduction of proteinuria by using rennin angiotension system inhibitors can slow the progression of CKD. This effect can be enhanced by reducing sodium intake. The recent recommendations suggest that blood pressure should not be higher than 130/80 mmHg and proteinuria should not exceed 0,5 g/day...

Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is a rare condition characterised by fibrotic thickening of the visceral peritoneum, leading to encapsulating of the intestines with partial or total intestinal obstruction. EPS is a serious complication of peritoneal dialysis (PD) with high morbidity and a mortality exceeding 50%. At present, there is uncertainty concerning the incidence and the risk factors involved in the development of EPS. To address these questions a nationwide registry has been initiated. The primary goals of the registry are to record the incidence of EPS and investigate the association of different variables, such as PD duration, medication, dialysis solutions and kidney transplantation with EPS...

EVALUATION OF THE RENAL FUNCTION: For the follow-up of the graft renal function it must be measured the glomerular filtration rate by means of formulae that use the serum creatinine. The most used equation is the brief formula MDRD. - All patients transplanted must be included in the group of Renal Chronic Disease though the glomerular filtration rate is normal and there is no evidence of renal damage. - The measures of intervention proposed in the classification of the Renal Chronic Disease for its progressive establishment in the stage 1 to 3, must be applied to all the transplanted THE BEGINNING OF DIALYSIS: In spite of receiving attention of Nephrologists along the whole evolution, the patients with chronic dysfunction of the graft that need treatment with dialysis start later and with more uremic complications that the patients who start dialysis for the first time...

Training provided by dialysis nurses to the patients is of great importance in peritoneal dialysis (PD). This study aimed to examine how PD patients continue with the training and practice taught in this unit and correlate these data with the incidence of peritonitis. Home visits were paid to 32 patients. A form including questions about 'knowledge and skill' and dialysis environment was filled in for each patient. Answers were graded out of 100 points and were reported as average, percentage and minimum-maximum values...

Correcting the renal anemia in dialysis patient require the optimal management of the erythropoietic stimulating agents (ESA) available on the market. In other words, that means that the prescription of these agents should be performed according to the specific pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of these agents. Two major classes of ESA are presently available for clinicians: one being considered as short acting substances (epoetine alfa and Epoetine Beta); the other one being considered as long acting substances (darbepoetin alfa)...
