Chronic kidney disease (CKD) results in high morbidity and mortality worldwide causing a huge socioeconomic burden. MicroRNA (miRNA) exert critical regulatory functions by targeting downstream genes and have been associated with many pathophysiologic processes including CKD. In fact, many studies have shown that the expression of various miRNAs was significantly changed in CKD. Current investigations have focused on revealing the relationship between miRNAs and CKD states including diabetic nephropathy, lupus nephritis, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and IgA nephropathy...

OBJECTIVE: Recent studies have reported that reduced excretion of urinary uromodulin (uUMOD) was associated with renal tubular function and risks of progressive kidney disease. Gouty nephropathy is usually seen in patients with gout. Patients with chronic gouty nephropathy are characterized by the deposition of monosodium urate crystals primarily involving the collecting ducts in the medulla. We postulated that this correlation may be specific to gout, and may serve as a useful biomarker for CKD...

Precision medicine is since long an ongoing refinement of classical medicine, integrating improved and more detailed pathophysiological understanding with rapid technological advances. In the heterogenous are of chronic kidney disease there seems to be a high potential for improvement in treatment and prognosis for several causes, with new technologies under development, that have yet to be introduced in clinical practice. As in other medical disciplines, investigation of abundant peptide patterns (proteomics) has gained recent interest...

BACKGROUND: Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a multifaceted sympathetic neurotransmitter regulating reflex cardiovascular control, myocardial cell growth, inflammation and innate immunity. Circulating NPY levels predict cardiovascular mortality in patients with end stage kidney disease on dialysis but this relationship has never been tested in predialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. METHODS: We investigated the relationship between circulating NPY and the risk for cardiovascular events (Fine & Gray competing risks model) in a cohort of 753 stages 2-5 CKD patients over a median follow-up of 36 months...

Background: The kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1) has previously been associated with kidney function in rodents and humans. Yet its role as a predictive marker for future decline in kidney function has remained less clear. Methods: At baseline (1991-1994), fasting plasma KIM-1 (p-KIM-1) was measured in 4739 participants of the population-based Malmö Diet and Cancer Study. Creatinine and cystatin C were used to calculate estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) according to Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) Collaboration 2012 creatinine-cystatin C equation at baseline and follow-up examination (2007-2012)...

Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is a methylated form of arginine and an endogenous nitric oxide synthase inhibitor. Renal function decline is associated with increase of plasma ADMA in chronic kidney disease populations. It is yet unknown how isolated renal function impairment affects ADMA homeostasis in healthy humans. Here, we measured plasma concentrations and urinary excretion of ADMA using GC-MS/MS in 130 living kidney donors before and at 1.6 (1.6-1.9) months after donation. We additionally analyzed 201 stable renal transplant recipients (RTR) that were included > 1 year after transplantation, as a model for kidney disease in the context of single kidney state...

BACKGROUND: There is a gradual increase in serum concentrations of protein-bound colon-derived uremic toxins indoxyl sulphate (IxS) and p-cresyl sulphate (pCS) as chronic kidney disease (CKD) progresses. In acute kidney injury (AKI), up till now, the retention pattern has not been studied. METHODS: In this study, 194 adult patients admitted with sepsis to the intensive care unit were included. IxS, pCS and serum creatinine (sCrea) were quantified at inclusion (D0) and at day 4, unless follow-up ended earlier (Dend )...

The past two decades have witnessed tremendous progress in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying wasting and cachexia in chronic kidney disease (CKD) and in other chronic illnesses, such as cancer and heart failure. In all these conditions wasting is an effect of the activation of protein degradation in muscle, a response that increases the risk of morbidity and mortality. Major recent advances in our knowledge on how CKD and inflammation affect cellular signaling include the identification of the myostatin (MSTN)/activin system, and its related transcriptional program that promotes protein degradation...

Background: Osteoprotegerin (OPG) plays protective roles against the development of vascular calcification (VC) which greatly contributes to the increased cardiovascular events in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The present study aimed to find the non-traditional, kidney-related cardiovascular risk factors correlated to serum OPG and the effect of serum OPG on the arterial stiffness measured by brachial ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) in patients with the pre-dialysis CKD...

Objective: Urinary proteomics is primarily applied to the study of renal and urogenital tract disorders. Here are reported two distinct successful examples of this approach for the discovery of early urinary biomarkers of kidney-related dysfunctions: diabetic nephropathy (DN), a well-known complication of diabetes frequently leading to dialysis, and drug-induced nephrotoxicity, a possible condition caused by medication-overuse headache (MOH). Early detection of kidney disorders based on selective biomarkers could permit to diagnose patients at the initial stage of the disease, where the therapy may be suspended or prevent disease advancement...

NEW FINDINGS: What is the central question of this study? Urotensin II is upregulated in patients in the later stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD), particularly in individuals requiring dialysis. However, studies in animals have been limited to the early stages of CKD. What is the main finding and its importance? Expression of urotensin II and its receptor increased, extending into cortical structures as CKD progressed towards end-stage renal failure in the rat. Sub-chronic treatment with a urotensin receptor antagonist slowed but did not prevent progression of CKD...

Transforming growth factor-β (TGF-β) is a driving force of renal fibrosis, which may lead to chronic kidney diseases and even end stage renal diseases. By activating canonical and non-canonical signaling pathways, TGF-β promotes the synthesis of extracellular matrix while preventing their degradation. In the injured kidney, TGF-β induces apoptosis, proliferation and fibrotic response of renal cells including epithelial cells, endothelial cells, podocytes, fibroblasts, pericytes and macrophages, and it also promotes transdifferentiation, activation and proliferation of myofibroblasts...

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is becoming an alarming health burden worldwide, however, there is still lack of early biomarkers and effective treatment options. Thus, in the upcoming era of precision medicine, searching for the sensitive, non-invasive biomarkers has been the cornerstone and major challenge in the management of CKD. Urine contains rich biological information which could be an ideal source for non-invasive biomarkers of CKD. This review will discuss the recent advances in biomarker study from urine sediment, urine supernatant and urinary extracellular vesicles with special interest in gene transcript (miRNA, mRNA) biomarkers...

BACKGROUND: The new polypeptide hormones adropin and irisin have a broad impact on human metabolism and energy homeostasis. They could be potential biomarkers of cardiac injury. In end-stage renal disease (ESRD), the clinical importance of adropin and irisin is yet to be investigated. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between these peptides and cardiac status in ESRD patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Seventy-nine ESRD patients on hemodialysis (HD), peritoneal dialysis (PD) or after renal transplantation (Tx), and 40 healthy, ageand sex-matched controls (CON) were included in this study...
