Genetic factors are clearly involved in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension in man. In at least three rat models of genetic hypertension it is possible to transplant the hypertension with the kidney. To see whether or not the same is true for humans, we carried out a 2-year retrospective study of 50 selected recipients of a cadaver kidney. We(More)

Results of the available literature and preliminary data of an ongoing multicenter, prospective, randomized Italian trial indicate that ciclosporin (CS), at low doses, may maintain remission of the nephrotic syndrome in most steroid-sensitive patients. In steroid-resistant patients CS may cause either complete or partial remission in about 40% of patients(More)
Acute anuric renal failure complicating systemic lupus erythematosus does not usually respond to treatment with corticosteroids and immunosuppressive agents. We describe four cases treated by dialysis, corticosteroids, and heparin in anticoagulant doses in which there was remarkable improvement in renal function after prolonged anuria. One patient died(More)
To compare the clinical and metabolic effects of a new diuretic uricosuric agent, tienilic acid, with those of hydrochlorothiazide, a multicentre double-blind trial was performed in 56 hypertensive patients. Twenty — eight patients were randomly assigned to take tienilic acid and 28 to take hydrochlorothiazide. The diuretic and anti-hypertensive actions of(More)
A patient with end-stage renal failure caused by bilateral kidney stones received a kidney transplant from his identical twin. No immunosuppressive therapy was given. After a few days he developed a urinary fistula from a polar artery section, which spontaneously healed. Renal function remained subnormal, blood pressure and urinalysis were normal. After one(More)
Acquired deficiency of naturally occurring anticoagulant proteins, due to loss in the urine, has been proposed as one of the major thrombogenic alterations in nephrotic proteinuria. The aim of this study was to investigate if proteinuria may induce deficiency of tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI). TFPI, protein C (PC) and antithrombin (AT) were measured(More)
The long-term clinical course of 11 adults with hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) is reported. All patients were treated with heparin and antiplatelet drugs, and ten required dialysis. One patient died after 38 days; the others recovered from anuria after seven to 400 days. One patient was resubmitted to regular dialysis five years later, and another died(More)
