The Czech registry of renal biopsies. Occurrence of renal diseases in the years 1994-2000.
Data on serum creatinine concentration, 24 h proteinuria, haematuria, serum albumin level, arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, histological diagnosis and complications after renal biopsy were collected by the Czech Registry of Renal Biopsies.
Prevalence of mutations in renal developmental genes in children with renal hypodysplasia: results of the ESCAPE study.
Gene mutations that have dominant inheritance and cause RHD, urinary tract anomalies, and defined extrarenal symptoms have been identified in TCF2, PAX2, EYA1, SIX1, and SALL1; it is interesting that a Six1 sequence variant was identified in two siblings with renal-coloboma syndrome as a result of a PAX2 mutation, suggesting an oligogenic inheritance.
The FLUXNET2015 dataset and the ONEFlux processing pipeline for eddy covariance data
The FLUXNET2015 dataset provides ecosystem-scale data on CO 2 , water, and energy exchange between the biosphere and the atmosphere, and other meteorological and biological measurements, from 212
Spectrum of steroid-resistant and congenital nephrotic syndrome in children: the PodoNet registry cohort.
Confirmation of a genetic diagnosis but not the histopathologic disease type was strongly predictive of intensified immunosuppressive therapy responsiveness, and the PodoNet cohort may serve as a source of reference for future clinical and genetic research in this rare but significant kidney disease.
Strict blood-pressure control and progression of renal failure in children.
Investigation of the long-term renoprotective effect of intensified blood-pressure control among children who were receiving a fixed high dose of an angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitor revealed a substantial benefit with respect to renal function among children with chronic kidney disease.
Genetic screening in adolescents with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome.
Screening of the entire coding sequence of NPHS2 and exons 8-9 of WT1 appears to be the most rational and cost-effective screening approach in sporadic juvenile steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome.
Control of hypertension in children after renal transplantation
Nearly 90% of children after renal transplantation are hypertensive and the control of hypertension is unsatisfactorily low, which could be improved by increasing the number of prescribed antihypertensive drugs, especially ACE inhibitors, and diuretics, or by using higher doses of currently usedAntihypertensives.
