  • 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.

  • Hypertension in Children and Adolescents
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Joshua A. Samuels, Ana S. Zavala, Jennifer M. Kinney, Cynthia S. BellHypertension is a growing problem in children and adolescents, with primary hypertension becoming the most common etiology. In addition to demonstrating that high blood pressure in children and young adults is likely to remain elevated into adulthood, this review (1) addresses important aspects of measuring blood pressure in children and adolescents, (2) defines elevated blood pressure and hypertension in this age group, (3) describes the initial evaluation and workup of abnormally high blood pressure, and (4) introduces treatment strategies for youth with sustained hypertension.
       
  • Hypertension and Pregnancy: Management and Future Risks
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Snigdha Reddy, Belinda JimPregnancy-induced hypertension is a major cause of maternal and fetal morbidity and mortality. The overall strategies of defining and managing these conditions are aimed at preventing cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications in the mother without jeopardizing fetal well-being. Our understanding of the origin of these disorders is evolving. Women with chronic hypertension should undergo a prepregnancy evaluation and close monitoring during and after pregnancy to ensure medication safety and to prevent end-organ damage. Based on available data, the current recommendation is that antihypertensive therapy should be initiated only in women with severe hypertension (defined as systolic blood pressure ≥160 mm Hg and/or diastolic blood pressure ≥105 mm Hg). It is now becoming more and more clear that hypertensive complications during pregnancy are potentially linked to cardiovascular, kidney, and metabolic diseases later in life. This review discusses the spectrum of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, general management principles, and the need to monitor for long-term cardiovascular sequelae for decades afterward.
       
  • The Impact of APOL1 on Chronic Kidney Disease and Hypertension
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Todd W. Robinson, Barry I. FreedmanEssential hypertension is a clinical diagnosis based on the presence of an elevated systemic blood pressure on physical examination without a clear inciting cause. It has multiple etiologies and is not a homogeneous disorder. Hypertension contributes to the development and progression of atherosclerotic cardiovascular diseases, and antihypertensive treatment reduces the risk of fatal and nonfatal myocardial infarction, stroke, and congestive heart failure. Although hypertension is frequently present in nondiabetic individuals with low levels of proteinuria and chronic kidney disease, reducing blood pressures in this population does not reliably slow nephropathy progression. Many of these patients with recent African ancestry have the primary kidney disease “solidified glomerulosclerosis” that is strongly associated with renal-risk variants in the apolipoprotein L1 gene (APOL1). This kidney disease contributes to secondarily elevated blood pressures. The APOL1-associated spectrum of nondiabetic nephropathy also includes proteinuric kidney diseases, idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis, collapsing glomerulopathy, severe lupus nephritis, and sickle cell nephropathy. This article reviews relationships between mild to moderate essential hypertension and chronic kidney disease with a focus on the role of APOL1 in development of hypertension. Available evidence strongly supports that APOL1 renal-risk variants associate with glomerulosclerosis in African Americans, which then causes secondary hypertension, not with essential hypertension per se.
       
  • Inflammation, Immunity, and Oxidative Stress in
           Hypertension—Partners in Crime'
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Ian R. Barrows, Ali Ramezani, Dominic S. RajHypertension is considered as the most common risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Inflammatory processes link hypertension and cardiovascular disease, and participate in their pathophysiology. In recent years, there has been an increase in research focused on unraveling the role of inflammation and immune activation in development and maintenance of hypertension. Although inflammation is known to be associated with hypertension, whether inflammation is a cause or effect of hypertension remains to be elucidated. This review describes the recent studies that link inflammation and hypertension and demonstrate the involvement of oxidative stress and endothelial dysfunction—two of the key processes in the development of hypertension. Etiology of hypertension, including novel immune cell subtypes, cytokines, toll-like receptors, inflammasomes, and gut microbiome, found to be associated with inflammation and hypertension are summarized and discussed. Most recent findings in this field are presented with special emphasis on potential of anti-inflammatory drugs and statins for treatment of hypertension.
       
  • Treating Hypertension Using Renal Artery Denervation: Problems and
           Progress
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Raymond R. TownsendEarly reports of renal denervation as a therapy for hypertension generated intense interest in this approach to management of elevated blood pressures despite ongoing treatment. The publication of the large, sham-controlled randomized clinical trial of renal denervation, Symplicity HTN-3, failed to show superiority of renal denervation by radiofrequency energy ablation compared with a sham procedure similar to the procedure used for denervation but without the application of energy to the renal artery. This prompted consideration of confounding factors and rethinking about the protocol and the procedure itself. This review describes these confounders and the progress made to improve trial design in the field of renal artery denervation.
       
  • How Low Do We Go (in the Post-SPRINT Era)'
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Anna Burgner, Julia B. LewisHypertension is frequently both a cause and complication of CKD. The optimal blood pressure target in CKD has been of hot debate over the decades with little data to inform the goals. Here, we review the data from the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT), Modification of Diet in Renal Disease (MDRD), African American Study of Kidney Disease and Hypertension (AASK), Ramipril Efficacy in Nephropathy-2 (REIN-2), and Action to Control Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes (ACCORD) trials to use the available evidence to better inform what blood pressure goal should be recommended in patients with CKD and to answer the question “How low should we go'”.
       
  • Resistant Hypertension: Diagnosis and Management
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Nagalakshmi Nagarajan, Diana JalalResistant hypertension is defined as high blood pressure requiring 3 or more medications for adequate control or controlled blood pressure requiring 4 or more medications. Considering the growing prevalence of hypertension and the strong link with cardiovascular disease, it is vital to understand the causes and treatment of resistant hypertension. This review article starts with an overview of the prevalence and little-known pathophysiology of resistant hypertension. Afterward, we discuss the evaluation and management of suspected secondary resistant hypertension in 2 broad categories: pseudoresistant hypertension and true resistant hypertension. Strategies for the identification and management of pseudoresistant hypertension are addressed. In addition, causes of true resistant hypertension, such as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, and renal artery stenosis, are examined along with their respective treatments. Finally, treatment of resistant hypertension is reviewed including pharmacologic treatments and novel procedural interventions for resistant hypertension. Overall, the review hopes to provide practitioners with a cohesive approach for the diagnosis and treatment of resistant hypertension.
       
  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: Profiles in Chronic Kidney Disease
           Patients and Utility in Management
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Nabeel Aslam, Samardia Missick, William HaleyOptimal control of blood pressure (BP) may reduce the risk of progression of CKD. Misclassification of hypertension (HTN) and status of control may result in suboptimal management. Clinic or home BP may overestimate or underestimate status of control compared with ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM), which is considered the gold standard. The latter relates not only to the superiority of ABPM concerning outcome prognosis but also to its ability to accurately diagnose white coat and masked HTN, which is critical in assuring adequate BP control. However, ABPM has not gained widespread use in practice because of limited third-party reimbursement and a paucity of high quality randomized controlled intervention studies evaluating its use. Herein, we review HTN phenotypes that have been identified in patients with CKD, and the potential value of ABPM in this high-risk population.
       
  • Assessment of Blood Pressure: Techniques and Implications From Clinical
           Trials
    • Abstract: Publication date: March 2019Source: Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease, Volume 26, Issue 2Author(s): Dia R. Waguespack, Jamie P. DwyerHypertension is a global health problem and without adequate diagnosis and treatment is a risk factor for morbidity and mortality. Proper assessment of blood pressure is key to diagnosis and management of hypertension. Different methods of measurement are available for use and varying techniques are applied to patient care. Understanding the proper methods of blood pressure measurement both in and out of the physician's office is crucial for providing appropriate care to an individual patient. In addition, understanding the techniques used in research, on which current guidelines are based, is critical for proper application to daily practice. In this article, we review the types of blood pressure measurement techniques, discuss the benefits and limitations to each, explore future technological advances in measurement devices, and provide insight into research techniques, which ultimately guide our practice.
