Mineral metabolism and outcomes in chronic kidney disease stage 2–4 patients
BackgroundMarked hyperphosphatemia, hyperparathyroidism and 25-hydroxyvitamin D deficiency are associated with mortality in dialysis patients. Such data in chronic kidney disease stage 2–4 populationExpand
Strategies for preserving residual renal function in peritoneal dialysis patients
Although there have been many advancements in the treatment of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) over the last 50 years, in terms of reducing cardiovascular risk, mortality remainsExpand
Urine Epidermal Growth Factor, Monocyte Chemoattractant Protein-1 or Their Ratio as Biomarkers for Interstitial Fibrosis and Tubular Atrophy in Primary Glomerulonephritis
Background/Aims: The degree of tubular atrophy and interstitial fibrosis (IFTA) is an important prognostic factor in glomerulonephritis. Imbalance between pro-inflammatory cytokines such as monocyteExpand
Urine epidermal growth factor, monocyte chemoattractant protein‐1 or their ratio as predictors of complete remission in primary glomerulonephritis
Background: The balance of several cytokines likely influences the resolution of glomerulonephritis. Monocyte chemoattractant protein‐1(MCP‐1) is a chemokine that promotes renal inflammation whereasExpand
Chromosome 20p inverted duplication deletion identified in a Thai female adult with mental retardation, obesity, chronic kidney disease and characteristic facial features.
We report on a 21-year-old Thai woman presenting with mental retardation, developmental delays, selective mutism, distinctive facial features, sensorineural hearing loss, single right kidney, uterineExpand
Early posttransplant nephrotic range proteinuria as a presenting feature of minimal change disease and acute T cell-mediated rejection.
Early-onset nephrotic range proteinuria is an extremely rare presentation of an acute rejection episode. Herein, we have reported a patient who developed nephrotic range proteinuria 7 days afterExpand
Hypokalemic Hypertension Leading to a Diagnosis of Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the most common inherited renal disease. Hypertension is common and occurs before decline in renal function. However, the coexistence ofExpand
Bioimpedance Analysis–Guided Volume Expansion for the Prevention of Contrast-Induced Acute Kidney Injury (the BELIEVE Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial)
Introduction Peri-procedural i.v. fluid administration is important for the prevention of contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI). However, standardized fluid management protocols may not beExpand
