Introduction: Endothelial dysfunction occurs in many diseases particularly in renal disease. The participation of the different endothelial mediators has been implicated in the pathogenesis of nephrotic syndrome and its complications. The aim of this study was to assess the value of endothelial mediators including nitric oxide (NO) metabolites, cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP), thromboxane A2 (TxA2), and prostacyclin (PGI2) in pediatric patients with nephrotic syndrome at different stages… Expand
Endothelial dysfuntion in children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome.
TLDR
Children with idiopathic nephrotic syndrome have endothelial dysfunction which is largely dependent upon disease activity, and children with SRNS had higher levels of sTM, tPA, vWF as compared to infrequent relapsers, at onset and at 4 weeks of steroid treatment. Expand
Biomarkers of endothelial dysfunction in patients with primary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis
TLDR
Endothelial dysfunction occurs in nephrotic syndrome and may constitute a link between NS and vascular complications, and whether they were associated with thromboembolic complications and disease activity is defined. Expand
Correlation between ICAM1 and VCAM1 gene polymorphisms and histopathological changes in kidney allograft biopsies
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that rs5498 ICAM1 gene polymorphism is associated with the grade of interstitial fibrosis in kidney recipients and the changes are more severe in patients with the G allele. Expand
The impact of CTLA4 and PTPN22 genes polymorphisms on long-term renal allograft function and transplant outcomes
TLDR
Results suggest that the rs231775 (+49AG) CTLA4 and rs2476601 (C1858T) PTPN22 genes polymorphisms are not associated with long-term allograft failure, graft loss and mortality after transplantation. Expand
Lipids, blood pressure, kidney – what was new in 2011?
TLDR
The year 2011 was very interesting regarding new studies, trials and guidelines in the field of lipidology, hypertensiology and nephrology, and the most important events and reports in the mentioned areas are summarized. Expand
Нарушения клубочкового фильтрационного барьера как причина протеинурии при нефротическом синдроме
TLDR
It is shown that the induction of proteinuria may be a consequence of disorders of the structure and function of each of these layers of the filter, as well as its combined damage. Expand

Effects of hypercholesterolemia of renal hemodynamics: study in patients with nephrotic syndrome.
TLDR
The results indicate that the reduction of cholesterol is associated with a significant increase in renal plasma flow, thus, suggesting that hypercholesterolemia may actually impair the renal hemodynamics. Expand
Adrenomedullin and nitrite levels in children with minimal change nephrotic syndrome
TLDR
The data indicate that NO may play a role in mediating the clinical manifestations of MCNS in children, however, changes in AM levels may be the result of heavy proteinuria. Expand
Assessment of urinary endothelin-1 and nitric oxide levels and their relationship with clinical and pathologic types in primary glomerulonephritis.
TLDR
Urinary ET-1 levels are found to be higher than in patients whose clinical feature was nephrotic syndrome, and the imbalance betweenET-1 and NO may be related to the pathogenesis of primary GN and the occurrence of proteinuria. Expand
Endothelial function in proteinuric renal disease.
TLDR
It remains to be shown whether lipid-lowering and antiproteinuric strategies have independent positive effects on endothelial function in nephrotic subjects. Expand
Insulin resistance, dyslipidaemia, inflammation and endothelial function in nephrotic syndrome.
TLDR
Endothelial function in NS is inversely correlated with plasma concentrations of NEFAs and LDL cholesterol, and it is postulated that in NS, hypoalbuminaemia increases the delivery ofNEFAs to endothelial cells thereby impairing the synthesis and release of nitric oxide. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that interactions between NO and apoptosis are important in the pathogenesis of the ADR-induced nephrosis. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that in the NS there is decreased free-radical trapping capacity of plasma that is inversely correlated with hypoalbuminaemia, but no increase in plasma and urinary F(2)-isoprostanes. Expand
Preliminary report: renal thromboxane A2 synthesis in children with frequent relapsing nephrotic syndrome
TLDR
Urinary TxB2 excretion was significantly higher in children with minimal change nephrotic syndrome than in 14 healthy controls, and reached its maximum at the time of peak proteinuria during remission of neph rotic syndrome. Expand
Cytokines and L-arginine in renal injury and repair.
TLDR
It is likely that cytokines and L-arginine metabolism are interconnected and that both are involved in the inflammation, tissue repair, and fibrogenesis processes in the kidney. Expand
Increased glomerular thromboxane synthesis as a possible cause of proteinuria in experimental nephrosis.
TLDR
There is an abnormality of glomerular AA metabolism in nephritic syndrome, which leads to increased TxA2 production, and the alteration found in isolated glomeruli probably reflects a modification in vivo, in that urinary excretion of immunoreactive TxB2 is also consistently increased in adriamycin nephrosis.
