TLDR
The present study revealed that only night shift work is significantly associated with high levels of IL-6 in Japanese workers, helping to understand the mechanism for the association between work schedule and CVD onset.
Tonsillectomy reduces recurrence of IgA nephropathy in mesangial hypercellularity type categorized by the Oxford classification
TLDR
HG is a novel predictor of recurrence after steroids pulse therapy in patients with IgAN, and the combination of steroid pulse therapy plus tonsillectomy may indicate a lower risk ofRecurrence in Patients with mesangial hypercellularity, as defined by the Oxford Classification.

Japan Arteriosclerosis Longitudinal Study-Existing Cohorts Combine (JALS-ECC): rationale, design, and population characteristics.
TLDR
The JALS-ECC collected data from existing cohort studies covering a diverse Japanese population, which has provided information about the effects of modifiable factors on the risks of the CVD, and should provide a reliable basis for establishing prevention strategies.
Volume Ratio of Glomerular Tufts to Bowman Capsules and Renal Outcomes in Nephrosclerosis
TLDR
It is suggested that the quantitative evaluation of G/B ratio may detect subtle abnormalities in the glomerulus, indicating the subsequent renal outcomes of nephrosclerosis patients.
Measurement of daily sodium excretion in patients with chronic kidney disease; special reference to the difference between the amount measured from 24 h collected urine sample and the estimated
TLDR
There is a considerable difference between the amount of sodium excretion calculated from a 24HU and that from a SU in patients with chronic kidney disease.
Spot urine protein/creatinine ratio as a reliable estimate of 24-hour proteinuria in patients with immunoglobulin A nephropathy, but not membranous nephropathy
TLDR
Evaluating whether an estimated result from a spot urine PCR could sufficiently approximate the daily urine protein excretion amount from a 24-h urine sample in patients with immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN), minimal change disease (MCD), and membranous nephopathy– nephrotic syndrome (MN-NS) revealed thatspot urine PCR is a reliable estimate of 24HP value in patientswith IgAN.
