BK virus nephritis: risk factors, timing, and outcome in renal transplant recipients.
TLDR
There was a steep decline in renal function in months preceding the diagnosis of BKVN, and reduction in calcineurin inhibitor dose, but not overall immunosuppression, correlated with stabilization of renal function.
RADIATION NEPHROPATHY
Prevalence of chronic kidney disease in Kinshasa: results of a pilot study from the Democratic Republic of Congo.
TLDR
More than 10% of the Kinshasa population exhibits signs of CKD, which is affecting adults in their productive years, and these alarming data must guide current and future healthcare policies to meet the challenge raised by CKD in this city and hopefully in the whole country.
Acquired Cystic Kidney Disease: Occurrence, Prevalence, and Renal Cancers
TLDR
The results support the need for investigation of 3-year dialysis patients for the presence of cystic disease and appropriate therapy based on findings, and support the quantitative importance of ACKD and renal cancers in renal transplant patients.
High prevalence of undiagnosed chronic kidney disease among at-risk population in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of Congo
TLDR
It appears that one out of three people in this at-risk population has undiagnosed CKD and poorly controlled CKD risk factors, which poses clear challenges to this developing country.
Neurologic sequelae after treatment of severe hyponatremia: a multicenter perspective.
TLDR
It was concluded that patients with severe chronic hyponatremia are most likely to avoid neurologic complications when their electrolyte disturbance is corrected slowly.
Bone marrow transplant nephropathy: radiation nephritis revisited.
TLDR
Bone marrow transplant nephropathy is a recognized complication of bone marrow transplantation, which will require ongoing attention, and patient survival is associated with control of the blood pressure.
Clinical course of late-onset bone marrow transplant nephropathy.
TLDR
Late-onset renal insufficiency is an increasingly recognized complication of bone marrow transplantation (BMT) which occurs between 6 and 12 months after BMT, and is characterized by azotemia, hypertension, and disproportionate anemia.
Evolution of Endpoints for Renal Transplant Outcome
TLDR
Post‐transplant renal function and histological indices can be used potentially as a composite endpoint, in combination with conventional endpoints, such as graft loss, death and acute rejection, according to the Banff chronicity score.
Synopsis of Partial-Body Radiation Diagnostic Biomarkers and Medical Management of Radiation Injury Workshop
TLDR
This report addresses eight key areas identified by the Workshop Program Committee for future focus: improved cytogenetics, clinical signs and symptoms, cutaneous bioindicators, organ-specific biomarkers, biophysical markers of dose, integrated diagnostic approaches, confounding factors, and requirements for post-event medical follow-up.
