  • Hepcidin
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Anil K. Agarwal, Jerry YeeDysregulation of metabolism and utilization of iron can lead to the development and maintenance of anemia of CKD. Anemia is prevalent among patients with CKD. The markers of iron sufficiency or availability of iron are far from perfect which results in inaccurate diagnosis and treatment of anemia with poor outcomes. Hepcidin, a 25 amino acid peptide produced by the hepatocytes, has emerged as the key regulator of uptake and release of iron in the tissues to maintain a steady supply of iron to erythron and other tissues while avoiding higher levels of iron that could be detrimental to the organs. Hepcidin itself is regulated by the supply of iron, the need for erythropoiesis, and the state of inflammation. Alterations in hepcidin levels are associated with restricted erythropoiesis, anemia, and iron overload. Discovery of hepcidin and elucidation of its mechanism of action and consequences of its upregulation and suppression have unraveled important insight into many hematologic disorders including anemia of CKD. This knowledge has also unlocked unique opportunities to modulate hepcidin via agonists and antagonists of hepcidin and its feedback pathways to treat clinical conditions. Many such agents are being developed and have potential therapeutic utility in future.
       
  • Long-Term Risks of Intravenous Iron in End-Stage Renal Disease Patients
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Abhijit V. Kshirsagar, Xiaojuan LiPatients with end-stage renal disease on dialysis commonly receive intravenous iron to treat anemia along with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents. While studies of intravenous iron have demonstrated efficacy in raising hemoglobin, the quantity of administered intravenous iron has raised concerns about iron overload leading to long-term toxicities. The goal of this review is to understand recent trends in intravenous iron use, potential mechanisms of iron toxicity, and to evaluate the available evidence in the literature for potential long-term cardiovascular and infectious complications. We include findings from the recently published landmark clinical trial of intravenous iron for patients receiving hemodialysis to contextualize treatment recommendations.
       
  • Novel Oral Iron Therapies for Iron Deficiency Anemia in Chronic Kidney
           Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Pablo E. Pergola, Steven Fishbane, Tomas GanzIron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a frequent complication of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is associated with adverse outcomes in these patients. Patients with CKD and IDA remain largely undertreated. Conventional oral iron agents are insufficiently effective due to poor absorption and cause gastrointestinal side effects; thus, novel oral iron preparations are needed. This article covers current treatment guidelines for patients with anemia and CKD and clinical trial data for iron-repletion agents currently in use, as well as for novel oral iron therapies in development. Ferric citrate, a novel oral iron-repletion agent approved for patients with non-dialysis-dependent CKD and IDA, demonstrated improvements in hemoglobin levels and iron parameters, with good tolerability in patients with non-dialysis-dependent CKD. When used as a phosphate binder, ferric citrate also improves hemoglobin and iron parameters in dialysis-dependent CKD, but additional trials are needed to evaluate its efficacy as an iron-repletion agent in this setting. Other novel oral iron preparations in development for IDA in patients with CKD include ferric maltol, which is approved in Europe and the United States for IDA in adult patients, and sucrosomial iron, which has been evaluated in IDA associated with CKD and several other clinical settings.
       
  • Biosimilar Erythropoiesis-Stimulating Agents in Chronic Kidney Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Hitesh H. Shah, Steven FishbaneAnemia is a well-known complication of advanced CKD and treatment with erythropoietin analogues (epoetin) remains a key component of management. Although biologic agents, including epoetin, play an extremely important role in the treatment of various medical conditions, their cost can be prohibitive. As a result, several biosimilar agents have now been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Biosimilar epoetin has been used in Europe since 2007. In this article, we will review biosimilar development and focus on the first approved biosimilar epoetin in the United States, epoetin alfa-epbx.
       
  • Hypoxia-Inducible Factor Activators in Renal Anemia: Current Clinical
           Experience
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Neil S. Sanghani, Volker H. HaaseProlyl hydroxylase domain oxygen sensors are dioxygenases that regulate the activity of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF), which controls renal and hepatic erythropoietin production and coordinates erythropoiesis with iron metabolism. Small molecule inhibitors of prolyl hydroxylase domain dioxygenases (HIF-PHI [prolyl hydroxylase inhibitor]) stimulate the production of endogenous erythropoietin and improve iron metabolism resulting in efficacious anemia management in patients with CKD. Three oral HIF-PHIs—daprodustat, roxadustat, and vadadustat—have now advanced to global phase III clinical development culminating in the recent licensing of roxadustat for oral anemia therapy in China. Here, we survey current clinical experience with HIF-PHIs, discuss potential therapeutic advantages, and deliberate over safety concerns regarding long-term administration in patients with renal anemia.
       
  • The Impact of Anemia Treatment on Health-Related Quality of Life in
           Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease in the Contemporary Era
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Fredric O. Finkelstein, Susan H. FinkelsteinThe treatment of anemia with erythropoietic-stimulating agents is now part of the routine care of patients with CKD with guidelines for anemia management carefully outlined by Kidney Disease Improving Global Outcomes. The treatment of anemia impacts the health-related quality of life of CKD patients, primarily affecting the domains of energy/vitality and physical functioning. Improvements in these domains occur, in general, most noticeably when hemoglobin levels are raised from below 9 g/dL to the 10-12 range, with limited improvements occurring when hemoglobin levels are increased above 12 g/dL. Importantly, individual patient responses to anemia treatment vary depending on a variety of factors and it is important to assess the impact of treatment on each patient, particularly as nephrology care moves to a patient-centered care model.
       
  • The Evolution of Target Hemoglobin Levels in Anemia of Chronic Kidney
           Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: July 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 4Author(s): Jonathan Bazeley, Jay B. WishSince the introduction of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) into clinical practice in 1989, considerable effort has been put forth toward identifying the optimal treatment strategy for managing anemia of CKD. After initial treatment of only the most severely anemic patients, therapy was subsequently expanded to include most patients on dialysis and many nondialysis CKD patients. Many nephrology societies and regulatory agencies have sought to identify the most appropriate hemoglobin levels to which ESA therapy should be targeted. As increasing evidence became available about the impacts of ESAs on varying endpoints including morbidity, mortality, and quality of life, the guidelines put forth by such agencies evolved over time. We review the literature impacting these determinations through the past 3 decades and comment on how this informs the application of this knowledge to the care of patients today.

  • Kidney Diseases Associated With Parvovirus B19, Hanta, Ebola, and Dengue
           Virus Infection: A Brief Review
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Narayan Prasad, James E. Novak, Manas R. PatelViral infection-associated kidney diseases are an emerging public health issue in both developing and developed countries. Many new viruses have emerged with new paradigms of kidney injury, either directly through their cytopathic effect or indirectly through immune-mediated glomerulopathy, tubulointerstitial disease, and acute kidney injury as part of multiorgan failure. Herein, we will discuss Parvovirus, which causes glomerulopathy, and Hanta, Ebola, and Dengue viruses, which cause viral hemorrhagic fever and acute kidney injury. Clinical manifestations also depend on extrarenal organ systems involved. Diagnosis of these viral infections is mainly based on a high index of suspicion, serologic testing, and isolation of viral DNA/RNA. Management is largely conservative, as specific antiviral agents are unavailable.
       
  • Flaviviruses and Kidney Diseases
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Emmanuel A. BurdmannThe genus Flavivirus comprises approximately 73 viruses, which share several common aspects, such as dimension, structure, nucleic acid properties, and shape in electronic microscopy. Global incidence of flavivirus infection increased dramatically over the last decades, causing large outbreaks in several areas of the world. These viruses are expanding from endemic tropical and subtropical areas to previously nonendemic areas, affecting and causing diseases in millions of individuals worldwide and posing a formidable challenge to public health in several countries. The majority of clinically significant flavivirus-associated infections are mosquito borne (arboviruses—acronym for ARthropod-BOrne VIRUSES), such as dengue, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, Zika, and West Nile fever. Most diseases caused by flaviviruses are asymptomatic or manifest as self-limited, mild, undifferentiated febrile diseases. In a limited number of cases, these diseases may evolve to severe inflammatory, multisystem diseases, causing high morbidity and mortality. Some flaviviruses have been consistently identified in kidney tissue and urine and have been clinically associated with kidney diseases. In this review, we will provide an overview of the epidemiology, risk factors, kidney pathology, etiopathogenesis, and outcomes of acute and chronic kidney syndromes associated with dengue, yellow fever, Zika, and West Nile virus disease.
       
  • The Changing Face of Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Mediated Kidney Disease
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Krishna Sury, Mark A. PerazellaIn nearly 40 years since human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) first emerged, much has changed. Our understanding of the pathogenesis of HIV infection and its effect on the cells within each kidney compartment has progressed, and the natural history of the disease has been transformed. What was once an acutely fatal illness is now a chronic disease managed with oral medications. This change is largely due to the advent of antiretroviral drugs, which have dramatically altered the prognosis and progression of HIV infection. However, the success of antiretroviral therapy has brought with it new challenges for the nephrologist caring for patients with HIV/acquired immune deficiency syndrome, including antiretroviral therapy–induced nephrotoxicity, development of non-HIV chronic kidney disease, and rising incidence of immune-mediated kidney injury. In this review, we discuss the pathogenesis of HIV infection and how it causes pathologic changes in the kidney, review the nephrotoxic effects of select antiretroviral medications, and touch upon other causes of kidney injury in HIV cases, including mechanisms of acute kidney injury, HIV-related immune complex glomerular disease, and thrombotic microangiopathy.
       
  • Preventing Hepatitis B in the Dialysis Unit
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Vivek Soi, Sandeep SomanPatients with end-stage renal disease are at risk for contracting hepatitis B virus (HBV) because of their exposure to blood products and compromised immune status. Despite a decrease in the incidence of HBV infection, continued vigilance in the form of surveillance is imperative in preventing the spread of this robust DNA virus. Regular review of serologic markers with isolation and decontamination practices as appropriate are paramount to maintaining a safe environment for dialysis to occur. Vaccination response rates are known to be suboptimal in the hemodialysis population. This has been attributed to altered cellular and humoral immunity. Vaccine response rates are improved with modification of the vaccine schedule. Explicit care must be taken to ensure patients are screened on entry to the dialysis unit especially after hospitalization, and periodically thereafter. This review discusses HBV in terms of epidemiology, prevention strategies, vaccination options, and identifying serologic markers. Finally, our experience with incorporation of an alert system incorporated within the electronic medical record that highlights markers of infection and immunity is described.
       
  • Emerging Threat: Changing Epidemiology of Hepatitis A and Acute Kidney
           Injury
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Maria Andrievskaya, Adrienne Lenhart, Junior UdumanIn the past decade, hepatitis A has been considered a rare disease in the United States, largely due to targeted vaccination of at-risk children. Evolving epidemiology has resulted in decreasing immunity and increasing hepatitis A infections among adults who are more likely to experience severe disease. A surge in outbreaks has been noted in the past 2 years, resulting in a high volume of hepatitis A related hospitalizations and complications in otherwise healthy individuals. The traditional understanding that acute kidney injury is a rare extrahepatic manifestation is being challenged by the resurgence of hepatitis A in a more vulnerable population. This review examines the epidemiologic factors that contributed to current public health concern and the association between hepatitis A and acute kidney injury.
       
  • Common Mechanisms of Viral Injury to the Kidney
    • Abstract: Publication date: May 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 3Author(s): Leslie A. BruggemanViral infections in an immunocompetent host can cause both acute and chronic kidney diseases, either by direct damage to the infected kidney cells or as a consequence of systemic immune responses that impact the kidneys' function. Viruses have evolved mechanisms to hijack signaling pathways of the infected cell, including the mammalian target of rapamycin pathway to support viral replication, and to evade antiviral immune responses such as those mediated by miR-155 via microRNA mimetics expressed by the virus. At both the cellular and systemic levels, the host has also evolved mechanisms to counter the viral subversion strategies in the evolutionary battle for mutual survival. In the era of genomic medicine, understanding individual genetic variations that lead to differences in susceptibilities to infection and variabilities in immune responses may open new avenues for treatment, such as the recently described functions of apolipoprotein L1 risk alleles in HIV-associated nephropathy. In addition, state-of-the-art high-throughput sequencing methods have discovered new viruses as the cause for chronic diseases not previously attributed to an infection. The potential application of these methods to idiopathic kidney diseases may reveal similar occult infections by unknown viruses. Precision medicine objectives to optimize host-directed and pathogen-directed therapies for kidney diseases associated with infectious causes will only be achieved through detailed understanding of genetic susceptibility associated with immune responses and viral tropism.
