Posttransplant malignancy (PTM) is a limiting factor both for patient and allograft survival in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs). We hypothesized that active vitamin D compounds (AVD) could reduce PTM development in KTRs. Ambulatory KTRs in a Japanese prospective cohort were followed from August 2007 to November 2010. The outcome of interest was newly(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated that podocyte injury, which results in proteinuria, leads to tubulointerstitial fibrosis. Although some studies have revealed that vitamin D administration protects renal structure and function in mesangial cell proliferative and/or excessive matrix productive models, the effects of vitamin D on podocyte injury(More)
The combination of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25D) and fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) levels predict hard renal outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), independent of classical markers of mineral and bone disorders, including serum phosphorus, parathyroid hormone, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D levels, and active vitamin D therapy. In a(More)
S-1 and cisplatin are used as one of the first-line chemotherapies for gastric cancer in Japan. The plasma concentration of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) is increased in patients with renal dysfunction because gimeracil in S-1 inhibits the degradation of 5-FU and about 50% of gimeracil is excreted in the urine. We describe a 35-year-old man with acute kidney injury(More)
Image in nephrology A 21-year-old woman was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lym-phoma (stage IV-B) in 2001 and underwent chemotherapy and then three stem cell transplantations [auto-peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (PBSCT) in 2002, allo-bone marrow transplantation from her mother in 2002 and allo-PBSCT from her sister in 2003]. From 2004, her serum(More)
