Thanks to remarkable advances in neonatal intensive care, infants who once had little chance for survival can now enter adulthood. Yet the consequences of premature birth or low birth weight (LBW) on nephrogenesis, final nephron number, and long-term kidney function are unclear. This review focuses on the theory, experimental evidence, and observational data that suggest an increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD) for infants born prematurely. Many premature and LBW infants begin life… Expand
Prematurity and future kidney health: the growing risk of chronic kidney disease
TLDR
The role prematurity plays in the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is described and potential reasons for this association including decreased nephron mass, as well as postnatal insults such as neonatal acute kidney injury (nAKI). Expand
Prematurity, Low Birth Weight, and CKD
TLDR
The worldwide increase in longevity allows increased expression of chronic disease, including chronic kidney disease, which is exacerbated by many risk factors in postnatal life, which are usually in excess in disadvantaged settings. Expand
Clinical consequences of developmental programming of low nephron number
TLDR
Urgent attention is required to implement public health measures to optimize maternal, fetal, and child health, to prevent or mitigate the consequences of developmental programming, to improve the health future generations. Expand
Preterm infants, kidney, rickets and vitamin D intake: is it time for rewriting the history?
TLDR
It has been demonstrated that AKI induces the renoprotective upregulation of survivin expression in kidney epithelial cells and survivin has been shown to mediate renal proximal tubule recovery through STAT-3 (Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3)-dependent pathways. Expand
Cardio-renal consequences of low birth weight and preterm birth
TLDR
It is essential to recognize early indicators of cardio-renal syndrome and to provide early life-style and pharmacological interventions directed towards preserving vascular and renal function throughout a lifetime with the goal to promote longevity and quality of life. Expand
Maternal and environmental risk factors for neonatal AKI and its long-term consequences
TLDR
Factors that prevent optimal nephrogenesis during pregnancy are described and a framework for future explorations designed to maximize outcomes in this vulnerable population of critically ill neonates is provided. Expand
Preterm birth and neonatal acute kidney injury: implications on adolescent and adult outcomes
TLDR
The evidence linking preterm birth and AKI in the NICU to CKD and the inclusion of AKI as an important short-term morbidity outcome and CKD findings such as a reduced glomerular filtration rate in the assessment of long-term outcomes are reviewed. Expand
Chronic kidney disease in the neonate: etiologies, management, and outcomes.
TLDR
Management of CKD focuses primarily on replacing renal functions such as erythropoietin, 1,25-hydroxylation of vitamin D, electrolyte homeostasis/excretion, and, in ESRD, waste product removal, while nutrition and growth monitoring are of utmost importance. Expand
Birth weight, malnutrition and kidney-associated outcomes—a global concern
TLDR
Maternal, fetal, and childhood nutrition are crucial contributors to these programming effects and synergistically act to augment the effects of developmental programming; this observation might explain in part the disproportionate burden of chronic disease in these regions. Expand
Preterm Birth: A Risk-factor for Chronic Kidney Disease?
TLDR
It is believed that preterm births before 36 weeks have a lower nephron mass, which results in a decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) at birth, but despite the fewer glomeruli, they manage to achieve a GFR similar to that of a term neonate. Expand

Disparities in renal endowment: causes and consequences.
TLDR
This article summarizes human data on nephron number and its evaluation and considers the circumstances, implication, and management of persons born with or acquiring a decreased complement of nephrons early in life. Expand
Low birth weight, nephron number, and kidney disease.
TLDR
Perinatal programming of these 2 diseases, as well as of nephron number, may have a synergistic impact on the development of hypertension and kidney disease in later life. Expand
Developmental renal physiology of the low birth weight pre-term newborn.
TLDR
The remarkable growth of the kidney and the rapid changes in renal function in the second half of gestation and early postnatal period are discussed and underscore the importance of attempting to maximize functional renal mass in the neonate or infant with renal impairment of any etiology. Expand
The clinical importance of nephron mass.
Abundant evidence supports the association between low birth weight (LBW) and renal dysfunction in humans. Anatomic measurements of infants, children, and adults show significant inverse correlationExpand

TLDR
Existing data indicate that low birth weight is associated with subsequent risk of CKD, although there is scope for additional well-designed population-based studies with accurate assessment of birth weight and kidney function and consideration of important confounders, including maternal and socioeconomic factors. Expand
Urinary NGAL in Premature Infants
TLDR
It is concluded that urine NGAL is easily obtained in premature infants and that it correlates significantly with both BW and gestational age, and the use of urinary NGAL as a biomarker of AKI in premature infant warrants further investigation. Expand
Developmental Programming of Hypertension and Kidney Disease
TLDR
The effect of premature birth, LBW, intrauterine milieu, and infant feeding on the development of hypertension and renal disease in later life as well as the role of the kidney is examined. Expand
Prematurity in mice leads to reduction in nephron number, hypertension, and proteinuria.
TLDR
This mouse model provides a proof of concept that prematurity leads to reduced nephron number and hypertension, and this model will be useful in studying the pathophysiology of premat maturity-induced nephrons number reductions and hypertension. Expand

TLDR
The goal in preterm infants, especially VLBW, could be to prolong the nephrogenesis not only for 6 weeks after birth but until 36 weeks of post conceptual age, allowing newborn kidneys to restore their nephron endowment, escaping susceptibility to hypertension and to renal disease later in life. Expand
Very low birth weight is a risk factor for secondary focal segmental glomerulosclerosis.
TLDR
It is found that very LBW and prematurity promote the development of secondary FSGS, and the findings support that this risk factor is likely to be underrecognized. Expand
