Tenofovir (TDF), atazanovir (ATAZ) and indinavir (IND) have been reported as possible risk factors for incident chronic kidney disease (CKD) in HIV-infected patients. We investigated the relationship between the duration of antiretroviral exposure and estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) evolution in CKD patients. In a cohort of 1,750 HIV-infected(More)
INTRODUCTION Adherence to therapy is a relevant challenge in chronic hemodialysis patients. The directly observed therapy (DOT) could be an effective method to increase adherence for specific therapies. We aimed to study the performance of DOT versus home medication. We follow the impact of providing native vitamin D directly by the nurse after a dialysis(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate concordance between glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimates (Cockcroft and Gault, modification of diet in renal diseases, chronic kidney disease epidemiology study group equations) for drug dosing in HIV-infected patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS We performed a monocentric study. GFR was measured using the gold standard method(More)
In France, the incidence of dialysis patients is increasing in people over 75 years and represents 40% of incident patients. In these elderly patients with many comorbidities, the benefit of dialysis in terms of survival and quality of life remains controversial. Using data from REIN, determinants of early mortality were identified and a prognostic score(More)
Texts governing clinical research are regularly revised in French law. The knowledge of administrative procedures to enable studies should be available to all interested clinicians. University hospitals are privileged with dedicated structures providing methodological and administrative support but which are sometimes ignored or underutilized. In this(More)
BACKGROUND Dialysis registries have reported a low take-up of home treatment. The aim of our study was to report patients' preferred treatment options for end-stage renal disease (ESRD) after information delivery, patients' characteristics by treatment preference, and the reasons for differences between treatment preference and the treatment delivered.

Patients over the age of 70 constitute the fastest growing segment of the ESKD population worldwide, but most of them are not considered candidates for kidney transplantation (KT). We have developed a simple clinical screening score to identify incident elderly dialysis patients over 70 years with an acceptable long-term prognosis to identify those patients(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system decreases proteinuria and slows estimated GFR decline in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus with overt nephropathy. Serum aldosterone levels may increase during renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade. The determinants and consequences of this aldosterone breakthrough(More)
The slope of GFR associates with an increased risk for death in patients with native CKD but whether a similar association exists in kidney transplantation is not known. We studied an inception cohort of 488 kidney transplant recipients (mean follow-up of 12 ± 4 years) for whom GFR was longitudinally measured by inulin clearance (mGFR) at 1 year and then(More)
