Circulating urokinase receptor as a cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
TLDR
It is reported that serum soluble urokinase receptor (suPAR) is elevated in two-thirds of subjects with primary FSGS, but not in people with other glomerular diseases, and that a higher concentration of suPAR before transplantation underlies an increased risk for recurrence of FSGS after transplantation.
Peritoneal Dialysis-Related Infections Recommendations: 2010 Update
The Human Phenotype Ontology in 2017
TLDR
The progress of the HPO project is reviewed, including specific areas of expansion such as common (complex) disease, new algorithms for phenotype driven genomic discovery and diagnostics, integration of cross-species mapping efforts with the Mammalian Phenotype Ontology, an improved quality control pipeline, and the addition of patient-friendly terminology.
Peritoneal Dialysis-Related Infections Recommendations: 2005 Update

Advanced Coronary and Carotid Arteriopathy in Young Adults With Childhood-Onset Chronic Renal Failure
