BACKGROUND This report describes data collected by the Czech Registry of Renal Biopsies (CRRB). METHODS Twenty-eight centres provided data on all biopsies of native kidneys performed in the Czech Republic (population 10.3 million) over the period 1994-2000. Data on serum creatinine concentration (sCr), 24 h proteinuria, haematuria, serum albumin level,(More)
Acute non-suppurative tubulointerstitial nephritis was recorded within a five-month interval in 1988 in one girl and two boys aged 15, 16 and 12 years. The common feature was non-selective proteinuria, slight glycosuria, anaemia, a sedimentation rate of more than 100 mm/2 hrs hyperatotaemia not calling for dialyzation treatment (268, 354 and 266 mumol/l(More)
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of inhibition of cytochrome P-450 (CYP) activity by 1-aminobenzotriazole (ABT) and by CoCl(2), first, on the development of hypertension when treatment was started in young male heterozygous Ren-2 transgenic rats (TGR) and, second, on blood pressure (BP) when treatment was started in adult TGR with(More)
BACKGROUND Major depression with comorbid anxiety disorder is associated with poor antidepressant outcome compared with major depression without comorbid anxiety disorder. The purpose of our study was to assess changes in depressive symptoms and anxiety levels in outpatients with major depression with comorbid anxiety disorder following 12 weeks of open(More)
Tolcapone is a catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) inhibitor that has shown efficacy in the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The authors undertook the first study on the efficacy of this COMT inhibitor in the treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD). The authors also wanted to assess the effects of tolcapone on the choline and myoinositol resonances in(More)
BACKGROUND In the present study we evaluated plasma and kidney angiotensin II (ANG II) levels in female and male Ren-2 transgenic rats (TGR) in comparison to age-matched female and male normotensive Hannover Sprague-Dawley rats. METHODS The rats were maintained on a normal sodium (NS) diet (0.6% NaCl) or fed a high sodium (HS) diet (2% NaCl) for 4 days or(More)
BACKGROUND We describe data on 10,472 renal biopsies gathered by the Czech Registry of Renal Biopsies over a period of 18 years. METHODS We assessed the main demographic, clinical and histological data of individuals who underwent renal biopsies of native kidneys in 31 centers in the Czech Republic (population 10.3 million) during the period 1994-2011.

PATIENTS AND METHODS 151 patients were examined for renal function, lipid profile, sonography, echocardiography,(More)
