  • The Renin-Angiotensin System Involvement in Cisplatin-Induced
           Nephrotoxicity: An Overview of Physiological and Pathological
           Mechanisms—A Systematic Review

    • Abstract: Cisplatin (CDDP) is a highly potent chemotherapy drug. But its nephrotoxicity poses a significant limitation to its use. The renin-angiotensin system (RAS) has been proposed to play a role in drug-induced nephrotoxicity. This systematic review (SR) sought to identify the link between CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity and the RAS pathway. In this SR, relevant keywords were employed to explore databases such as PubMed (MEDLINE), Scopus (Elsevier), and Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) Web of Science up to October 2023. Nine studies were selected based on predefined inclusion/exclusion criteria. The findings support the involvement of the RAS in the CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity model, along with the activation of inflammatory mediators, lipid peroxidation, and changes in markers of kidney tissue damage. Furthermore, physiology and pathology of RAS-related interventions in CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity models have involved the factors such as human organic cation transporter 2 (hOCT2), organic anion transporting polypeptides 1B1 (OATP1B1) and 1B3, kallikrein-kinin system, and bradykinin receptors. CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity has been found to be substantially influenced by both classic and nonclassic RAS axes. Angiotensin II exacerbates renal damage induced by CDDP. Conversely, inhibiting the pressor arm of RAS in males mitigates this damage. However, activation of the renal vasodepressor arm of RAS exacerbates CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity in females. These findings underscore gender differences in renal function and response to RAS-related interventions in the presence of CDDP. This SR provides insights into both beneficial and adverse interventions associated with RAS in the CDDP-induced nephrotoxicity, offering valuable considerations for researchers and clinicians.

  • Validation of the Kidney Failure Risk Equation in the Colombian Population

    • Abstract: Introduction. Chronic kidney disease prevention programs must identify patients at risk of early progression to provide better treatment and prolong kidney replacement therapy-free survival. Risk equations have been developed and validated in cohorts outside of Colombia, so this study aims to evaluate the discrimination and calibration of the four-variable kidney failure risk equation in a Colombian population where it has yet to be validated. Methods. External validation study of a kidney failure risk equation using a historical cohort of patients with CKD stages 3, 4, and 5, adults without a history of dialysis or kidney transplantation with a two-year follow-up, belonging to the Baxter Renal Care Services Colombia network. The discriminatory capacity of the model was evaluated by the concordance index using Harrell’s C statistic, and the time-dependent area under the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve was estimated using the nearest neighbor method, as well as the optimal cut-off point for sensitivity and specificity. Calibration was determined by the degree of agreement between the observed outcome and the probabilities predicted by the model using the Hosmer–Lemeshow statistic. Results. A total of 5,477 patients were included, with a mean age of 72 years, 36.4% diabetic, and a mean baseline eGFR of 36 ml/min/1.73 m2. The rate of dialysis initiation was three events per 100 patient-years, 95% CI (2.9–3.6). The optimal cutoff for sensitivity was 0.94, for specificity, 0.76, and the area under the ROC curve was 0.92. Harrell’s C-statistic was 0.88 for the total population, 0.88 for diabetic patients, and 0.93 for those 65 years or older. The validation of the model showed good calibration. Conclusions. In this Colombian cohort, the four-variable KFRE with a two-year prediction horizon has excellent calibration and discrimination, and its use in the care of CKD Colombian patients is recommended.

  • Bacteremia and Mortality among Patients with Nontunneled and Tunneled
           Catheters for Hemodialysis

    • Abstract: Introduction. Central venous catheters for hemodialysis (HD) can be nontunneled catheters (NTC) or tunneled catheters (TC). Bacteremia and dysfunction are complications that can impact morbidity and mortality. We decided to compare the rates of bacteremia and dysfunction between NTC and TC and patient survival 90 days after catheter insertion. Methods. Retrospective cohort to evaluate catheters inserted between January 2011 and December 2020 in a tertiary hospital. Catheters in patients with end-stage chronic kidney disease were included. Patients with acute kidney injury, catheters that lasted less than three HD sessions, and patients who died within one week after insertion were excluded. Bacteremia and dysfunction rates, bacteremia-free survival, and dysfunction-free survival were investigated. Multivariable analysis was performed using a Cox proportional hazards regression model for patient survival at 90 days. Results. 670 catheters were analyzed in 287 patients, 422 NTC (63%), and 248 TC (37%). The rates of confirmed bacteremia per 1,000 catheter-days were 1.19 for NTC and 0.20 for TC (). The confirmed or possible bacteremia rates were 2.27 and 0.37 per 1,000 catheter-days for NTC and TC, respectively (). The dysfunction rates were 3.96 and 0.86 for NTC and TC, respectively (). Patient survival at 90 days was higher in the TC group than the NTC group (96.8% vs. 89.1%; ).Conclusion. We found lower rates of bacteremia and dysfunction for TC and demonstrated that using NTC affects patient mortality.

  • The Prevalence and Risk Factors of Hyperkalemia in the Outpatient Setting

    • Abstract: Background. Hyperkalemia is a life-threatening condition in outpatient and emergency departments. Hyperkalemia is associated with more events of major adverse cardiovascular diseases, hospitalization, and death. The aim of this study is to study and assess the prevalence and risk factors for developing hyperkalemia within the Thai population. Method. A cross-sectional observational study of 3,299 unique adult patients (≥18 years) in one calendar year (2021) with at least 1 valid serum potassium (SK) test was conducted in the outpatient department of medicine. Hyperkalemia was determined as SK ≥5.8 mmol/L without hemolysis or technical error. Clinical data and laboratory tests were collected for analysis of risk factors. Result. 2,971 patients (131 hyperkalemia and 2,840 control) were eligible. The annual prevalence of hyperkalemia was 4.41%. The mean ages of patients were 66.5 years in the hyperkalemia group and 55.9 years in the control group. Increasing age had a positive association (r = 0.220, ) to risk of hyperkalemia, whereas the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) had an inverse association with SK level (r = −0.398, ). The risk factors for hyperkalemia were patients with age ≥65 years (odds ratio, 2.106; 95% CI, 1.399, 3.171; ), presence of diabetes mellitus (DM, odds ratio, 1.541; 95% CI, 1.030, 2.306; ), chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage ≥3 (odds ratio, 14.885; 95% CI, 8.112, 27.313; ), hemodialysis treatment (odds ratio, 10.170; 95% CI, 5.858, 17.657; ), and usage of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi, odds ratio, 2.256; 95% CI, 1.440, 3.536; ).Conclusion. The risk factors contributing to hyperkalemia were patients with older age, DM, CKD, hemodialysis treatment, and usage of RAASi. Although the usage of RAASi is proven to be a cardiovascular advantage in the elderly, DM, and CKD patients, careful monitoring of SK is strongly advised to optimize patient care.

  • Endovascular versus Surgical Lower Extremity Revascularization among
           Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease

    • Abstract: Introduction. Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a high prevalence of peripheral artery disease. How best to manage lower extremity peripheral artery disease remains unclear in this patient population. We therefore sought to compare the outcomes after endovascular versus surgical lower extremity revascularization among patients with CKD. Methods. We used data from Optum’s de-identifed Clinformatics® Data Mart Database, a nationwide database of commercially insured persons in the United States to study patients with CKD who underwent lower extremity endovascular or surgical revascularization. We used inverse probability of treatment weighting to balance covariates. We employed proportional hazard regression to study the primary outcome of major adverse limb events (MALE), defined as a repeat revascularization or amputation. We also studied each of these events separately and death from any cause. Results. In our cohort, 60,057 patients underwent endovascular revascularization and 9,338 patients underwent surgical revascularization. Endovascular revascularization compared with surgical revascularization was associated with a higher adjusted hazard of MALE (hazard ratio (HR) 1.52; 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.46–1.59). Endovascular revascularization was also associated with a higher adjusted hazard of repeat revascularization (HR 1.65; 95% CI 1.57–1.72) but a lower adjusted risk of amputation (HR 0.71; CI 0.73–0.89). Patients undergoing endovascular revascularization also had a lower adjusted hazard for death from any cause (0.85; CI 0.82–0.88). Conclusions. In this analysis of patients with CKD undergoing lower extremity revascularization, an endovascular approach was associated with a higher rate of repeated revascularization but a lower risk of subsequent amputation and death compared with surgical revascularization. Multiple factors must be considered when counseling patients with CKD, who have a high burden of comorbid conditions. Clinical trials should include more patients with kidney disease, who are often otherwise excluded from participation, to better understand the most effective treatment strategies for this vulnerable patient population.

  • The Impact of Hot Ambient Temperature and Prolonged Fasting Duration
           during Ramadan on Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease: A Literature
           Review

    • Abstract: The Islamic (lunar) calendar has 11 fewer days each year than the Gregorian (solar) calendar. Consequently, ambient temperatures during the month of Ramadan and the duration of the presunrise-to-sunset fast will change each year. At some point, individuals observing Ramadan will experience prolonged periods of fasting during the hot summer months. In this manuscript, findings published in the English-language medical literature that address the impact of prolonged fasting during the warmer summer months on patients with chronic kidney disease, including dialysis and transplantation patients, are reviewed. This is of particular concern given the accelerated pace of global warming. The limitations of the evidence that is currently available are also discussed, and an approach that might be used to standardize future evaluations of the impact of fasting on kidney health is suggested.

  • Correlation of the Dietary Protein Intake between Those Estimated from a
           Short Protein Food-Recall Questionnaire and from 24-Hour Urinary
           Urea-Nitrogen Excretion in Stages 3-4 Chronic Kidney Disease Patients

    • Abstract: Introduction. High protein intake may accelerate progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Estimation of dietary protein intake (DPI) is indispensable for management of CKD, but to achieve optimum DPI is quite challenging in routine clinical practice. We recently studied a beneficial effect of utilizing integrated care on the management of CKD at the rural community level. In that study, we created a short protein food-recall questionnaire (S-PFRQ) as a working tool to estimate DPI of the CKD patients during home visit by community health personnel. Herein, we reported the initial evaluation of the reliability of S-PFRQ from our previous study. Objective. We compared the amount of DPI obtained from S-PFRQ with that obtained from protein-equivalent of total nitrogen appearance (PNA). Methods. In the previous ESCORT-2 study, 914 patients with CKD stage 3 or 4, who were living in the rural area of Thailand, were prospectively followed while receiving integrated care for 36 consecutive months. During home visits by community nurses from subdistrict health centers, dietary food recall was made, recorded in S-PFRQ, and DPI was obtained. Among these, sixty patients were randomly selected, and 24-h urine was collected for urinary urea-N and estimation of PNA. A correlation was made between DPI obtained from S-PFRQ and PNA. Results. The DPIs derived from S-PFRQ and PNA were 28.8 ± 14.8 and 39.26 ± 17.79 g/day, respectively. The mean difference and 95% CI between the 2 methods was −10.43 (−7.1 to −13.8) g/day, respectively (

  • Findings of Cardiovascular Workup of Kidney Transplant Candidates: A
           Retrospective Study of a Single-Center in Saudi Arabia

    • Abstract: Background. There are limited data about the prevalence of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors and the findings of CV workup among kidney transplant (KTx) recipients (KTRs) in Saudi Arabia. Methods. A single-center retrospective study of KTRs who underwent KTx from 2017 to 2020 was performed. We reviewed the prevalence of CV risk factors and the results of the pre-KTx CV workup which was derived from the American Heart Association guidelines. Results. We included 254 KTRs. The mean age was 43.1 ± 15.9 years, and 55.5% were men and 79.5% were living-donor KTRs. Pre-emptive KTx was 9.8%, peritoneal dialysis was 11.8%, and hemodialysis was 78.3% (arteriovenous fistula: 33.1% versus hemodialysis catheter: 66.9%). The mean dialysis vintage was 4.8 ± 3.3 years for deceased-donor KTRs versus 2.4 ± 2.6 years for living-donor KTRs. CV risk factors were hypertension: 76%, diabetes: 40.6% (type 1 : 25.2% versus type 2 : 74.7%), hyperlipidemia (low-density lipoprotein>2.6 mmol/L): 40.2%, coronary artery disease (CAD): 12.6%, smoking: 9.1%, peripheral vascular disease: 2.8%, and cerebral vascular disease: 2.4%. The prevalence of obesity stage 1 was 19.7% and obesity stage 2 was 4%. Left ventricular hypertrophy was present in 38.5%. The ejection fraction was abnormal (

  • Immunophenotypic Characterization of Citrate-Containing A Concentrates in
           Maintenance Hemodialysis: A Pre-Post Study

    • Abstract: Introduction. Due to chronic inflammation, maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) patients continue to show excess mortality. Acetate-free citrate-buffered A concentrates could be a way to improve the biocompatibility of the procedure, reduce chronic inflammation, and thus in the long term improve the prognosis of patients. Methods. Using a pre-post design (3 months of acetate followed by 3 months of citrate-acidified A concentrates in standard bicarbonate-based dialysate hemodialysis, CiaHD) and linear mixed model analysis in 61 stable HD patients, we assessed the impact of CiaHD on counts and phenotypes of peripheral T cells and monocytes by flow cytometry. Results. Switching to CiaHD left C-reactive protein (CRP) levels and leucocyte counts unaffected. However, CiaHD increased lymphocyte counts ex vivo. Furthermore, we found a decrease in total CD3+CD4+CD69+ ((109/L), mean ± SD: acetate, 0.04 ± 1.0 versus citrate, 0.02 ± 0.01;  = 0.02) activated cells, while the number of CD28+ T cells remained stable. No differences were noted regarding T-cell exhaustion marker expression, CD14+CD16+ monocyte counts, and PMN-MDSCs. Conclusion. Compared with acetate, CiaHD has a minor impact on lymphocyte counts and CD4+T-cell activation, which was independent of systemic CRP and ionized magnesium, calcium levels, and other dialysis prescription modalities.

We collected patients followed for PH1 confirmed by genetic study and/or histopathological features of renal biopsy and morphoconstitutional analysis of the calculi. Results. There were 25 patients with a gender ratio of 1.78. The median age at onset of symptoms was 18 years. A delay in diagnosis more than 10 years was noted in 13 cases. The genetic study found the I244T mutation in 17 cases and 33-34 InsC in 4 cases. A kidney biopsy was performed in 5 cases, on a native kidney in 4 cases and on a graft biopsy in one case. The analysis of calculi was done in 10 cases showing type Ic in 2 cases. After a median follow-up of 13 years (1 year–42 years), 14 patients progressed to end-stage chronic renal failure (ESRD). The univariate study demonstrated a remarkable association with progression to ESRD in our population (44% vs. 56%) RR = 13.32 (adjusted ORs (95% CI): 2.82–62.79) ().Conclusion. Progression to ESRD was frequent in our series. Early diagnosis and adequate management can delay such an evolution.

  • Ameliorative Effect of Olea europaea Leaf Extract on Cisplatin-Induced
           Nephrotoxicity in the Rat Model

    • Abstract: Background. Olea europaea leaf extract (OELE) has potential health benefits and protects against cytotoxicity. This study investigated the possible ameliorative effect of OELE on cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity in rats. Methods. Rats were assigned into six groups; two groups received 150 mg/kg or 300 mg/kg of OELE, one group received a single dose of cisplatin (6 mg/kg) IP on the first day of the experiment, two groups received a single dose of cisplatin 150 mg/kg or 300 mg/kg of OELE on the first day then starting from the fifth day for 10 consecutive days, and one group acted as a control. Results and Conclusion. The findings showed that cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity was evidenced by a significant increase in serum creatinine blood urea nitrogen (BUN) and a significant decrease in estimated creatinine clearance and potassium level, which corresponded with the alterations in the histopathology of the renal tissue. OELE significantly ameliorated the nephrotoxic effects of cisplatin as dose-dependent.

  • Somatic Symptoms of Depression Lose Association with Mortality upon
           Adjustment for Frailty: Analysis from the Fitness Haemodialysis Cohort

    • Abstract: Introduction. The somatic symptom component of depression is associated with increased hospitalisation and mortality and poorer health-related quality of life (HRQOL). However, the relationship of subsets of depression symptoms with frailty and outcomes is not known. This study aimed to (1) explore the relationship between the Clinical Frailty Scale (CFS) and components of depression and (2) their association with mortality, hospitalisation, and HRQOL in haemodialysis recipients. Methods. We conducted a prospective cohort study of prevalent haemodialysis recipients, with deep bio-clinical phenotyping including CFS and PHQ-9 somatic (fatigue, poor appetite, and poor sleep) and cognitive component scores. EuroQol EQ-5D summary index assessed HRQOL at the baseline. Electronic linkage to English national administration datasets ensured robust follow-up data for hospitalisation and mortality events. Findings. Somatic (β = 0.067; 95% C.I. 0.029 to 0.104; ) and cognitive (β = 0.062; 95% C.I. 0.034 to 0.089; P

  • Gender Disparity in Expression of Sarcopenia in Haemodialysis Recipients:
           Analysis from the FITNESS Cohort

    • Abstract: Background. There has been little exploration of the interplay between sarcopenia and frailty in haemodialysis, particularly regarding gender difference. We aimed to (1) assess whether ultrasound-derived low muscle mass (LMM) and sarcopenia are more common in male or female haemodialysis recipients; (2) assess whether age influences any observed gender difference, and (3) explore the interplay between sarcopenia, frailty, and gender in haemodialysis recipients. Methods. This was an exploratory analysis of a subgroup of adult prevalent (≥3 months) haemodialysis with frailty phenotype (FP) scores. Bilateral anterior thigh thickness (BATT) was obtained according to an established ultrasound protocol. Associations with frailty were explored via both linear and logistic regressions for BATT, LMM, and sarcopenia with a priori covariables, stratified by gender. Results. In total of 223 studies, participants had ultrasound measurements. Males showed greater prevalence of LMM. On adjusted analyses, LMM was associated with lower hand grip strength in males (β = −4.17; 95% C.I. −7.57 to −0.77; ), but not females (β = −1.88; 95% C.I. −5.41 to 1.64; ). LMM was also associated with slower walking speed in both males (β = −0.115; 95% C.I. −0.258 to −0.013; ) and females (β = −0.152; 95% C.I. −0.300 to −0.005; ). Sarcopenia was associated with greater odds of frailty on adjusted models in males (OR = 9.86; 95% C.I. 1.8 to 54.0; ), but not females (OR = 5.16; 95% C.I. 0.22 to 124; ).Conclusions. The clinical expression and significance of sarcopenia differ substantially between males and females on haemodialysis. Further work is required to elucidate underlying mechanisms and guide tailored treatment.

  • Comparison of Three Glomerular Filtration Rate Estimating Equations with
           24-Hour Urine Creatinine Clearance Measurement in Potential Living Kidney
           Donors

    • Abstract: Background. The accuracy of the measurement of renal function in potential living kidney donors (PLKD) is essential. The direct measurement of glomerular filtration rate (mGFR) has been considered the “gold standard.” The estimated GFR (eGFR) with 24-hour urinary creatinine clearance (CrCl) is frequently used because of its availability. We aim to evaluate the correlation and agreement of eGFR using serum-based creatinine formulas (Cockcroft–Gault, MDRD, and CKD-EPI) and the eGFR based on 24-hour urinary CrCl to evaluate kidney function in PLKD. Methods. We evaluated the kidney function in 799 PLKD using 24-hour urinary CrCl method and compared the correlation and agreement with the eGFR based on creatinine formulas (Cockcroft–Gault, MDRD, and CKD-EPI). We calculated the mean bias (difference), precision (SD of this difference), accuracy, and performed Bland–Altman plots. Results. A total of 799 PLKD were analyzed. The age of the PLKD ranged from 18 to 73 years. Weak to mild correlation was observed between 24-hour urinary CrCl and all formulas (ranged from 0.31 to 0.49). The three equations underestimated the GFR. Using the Bland–Altman graphic, we observed that the CKD-EPI was the least scattered and most precise; however, mean bias and the interval range (limits of agreement) of all formulas were too big to assume equivalence between 24-hour urinary CrCl method and eGFR based on creatinine. Results of mean bias were similar when comparing the three equations in patients with CrCl GFR

  • The Impact of Anaemia on Outcomes, Admissions, and Costs in Patients with
           Chronic Kidney Disease in Two Public Nephrology Practices in Queensland: A
           CKD.QLD Registry Study

    • Abstract: Aim. Anaemia among patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) leads to poor overall outcomes. This study explores anaemia and its impact on nondialysis CKD (NDD-CKD) patients. Methods. 2,303 adults with CKD from two CKD.QLD Registry sites were characterised at consent and followed until start of kidney replacement therapy (KRT), death, or censor date. Mean follow-up was 3.9 (SD 2.1) years. Analysis explored the impact of anaemia on death, KRT start, cardiovascular events (CVE), admissions, and costs in these NDD-CKD patients. Results. At consent, 45.6% patients were anaemic. Males were more often anaemic (53.6%) than females, and anaemia was significantly more common over the age of 65 years. The prevalence of anaemia was highest among CKD patients with diabetic nephropathy (27.4%) and renovascular disease (29.2%) and lowest in patients with genetic renal disease (3.3%). Patients with admissions for gastrointestinal bleeding had more severe anaemia, but accounted for only the minority of cases overall. Administration of ESAs, iron infusions, and blood transfusions were all correlated with more severe degrees of anaemia. The number of hospital admissions, length of stay, and hospital costs were all strikingly higher with more severe degrees of anaemia. Adjusted hazard ratios (CI 95%) of patients with moderate and severe anaemia vs. no anaemia for subsequent CVE, KRT, and death without KRT were 1.7 (1.4–2.0), 2.0 (1.4–2.9), and 1.8 (1.5–2.3), respectively. Conclusion. Anaemia is associated with higher rates of CVE, progression to KRT and death in NDD- CKD patients, and with greater hospital utilisation and costs. Preventing and treating anaemia should improve clinical and economic outcomes.

  • Efficacy and Safety of Bedside Removal of Tunnelled Hemodialysis Catheter
           by Noninterventional Nephrologists among Adult Patients in the King
           Abdulaziz University Hospital Hemodialysis Centre in Jeddah: A
           Retrospective Cohort Study

    • Abstract: This study aimed to assess the efficacy and safety of bedside removal of tunnelled hemodialysis catheter (TDC) by noninterventional nephrologists among adult patients. It is a retrospective study that involved 53 patients from March 2020 to February 2022 at the King Abdulaziz University Hospital (KAUH) Hemodialysis Centre in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Of the 53 participants, 60.4% were male and 40.6% female, and their mean age was 50.94 ± 18.89 years. The most common comorbidities were hypertension (HTN) in 47 (88.7%), diabetes mellitus (DM) in 24 (45.3%), and DM and HTN together in 23 (43.4%) patients. The most common site of TDC removal was the right internal jugular vein (77.4%). In 84.9% of the cases, the TDC was removed as an inpatient procedure, and in the majority of the cases (64.2%), the TDC was removed by a noninterventional nephrologist. The most common reasons for TDC removal were sepsis or clinical concerns for infection (64.2%) and TDC not needed (20.8%) due to recovery of the renal function or access maturation. Most patients (96.2%) suffered no complications; only one of 34 (%) patients with catheter removal by a noninterventional nephrologist had bleeding, which required more observation and monitoring before discharge on the same day. Our study revealed that the bedside TDC removal was well tolerated with a minimal complication rate.

  • Growth Differentiation Factor 15 and Risk of Death in Haemodialysis
           Patients

    • Abstract: Aim. Noninvasive identification of haemodialysis patients at high risk of cardiovascular events and death might improve their outcome. Growth differentiation factor 15 is a prognostic biomarker in multiple disease entities, including cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to assess the association between plasma GDF-15 and mortality in a cohort of haemodialysis patients. Methods. Circulating GDF-15 was measured in 30 patients after a regular haemodialysis session, followed by a clinical follow-up for all-cause death. Measurements were performed using the Proseek Multiplex Cardiovascular disease panels (Olink Proteomics AB) and validated using the Elecsys GDF-15 electrochemiluminescence immunoassay on a Cobas E801 analyzer (Roche Diagnostics). Results. During a median of 38 months, 9 patients (30%) died. Seven deaths occurred in the group of patients with a circulating GDF-15 above the median and two in the group with lower GDF-15. Mortality was significantly higher in patients with circulating GDF-15 levels above the median, log-rankP = 0.044. The performance of circulating GDF-15 to predict long-term mortality has an area under the ROC curve of 0.76, P = 0.028. Prevalence of most relevant comorbidities and the Charlson comorbidity index were similar across the two groups. A high agreement with a correlation among both diagnostic methods was observed (Spearman’s rho = 0.83, ).Conclusion. Plasma GDF-15 displays promising prognostic properties for the prediction of long-term survival beyond clinical parameters in patients on maintenance haemodialysis.

  • Blind Spot in the Radar of MEST-C Score: Type and Severity of
           Tubulointerstitial Nephritis in IgA Nephropathy

    • Abstract: Background. The updated version of predictive classification for immunoglobulin A nephropathy (IgAN) prognosis “The Oxford Classification” identifies five histopathological features including mesangial hypercellularity (M), endocapillary proliferation (E), segmental glomerulosclerosis (S), tubular atrophy/interstitial fibrosis (T) and crescents (C), the MEST-C. However, few studies suggest that tubulointerstitial inflammation, which is not included in the MEST-C, is also linked to disease progression and is, consequently, a neglected determinant of prognosis among others. Therefore, there is a need to evaluate this histopathological parameter in patients with IgA nephropathy. Materials and Methods. This cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Center, Lahore, Pakistan. Data of histopathological and immunofluorescence proven renal biopsies (300) of IgA nephropathy patients from January 2016 through May 2022 were extracted using a convenient sampling technique. Biopsies were histologically reviewed for type and severity of tubulointerstitial inflammation, in addition to the MEST-C score. Renal biopsies of patients who had a history of transplant, autolyzed tissue, no glomeruli on histological examination, and/or a tubular atrophy/interstitial fibrosis score of 2 (T2) in MEST-C scoring were excluded. Data were analyzed using SPSS 20. An association between the variables was analyzed using the chi-square and Fischer exact tests. A value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. Results. A total of 247/300 biopsies were eligible for inclusion. The mean age at the time of biopsy was 31.90 ± 12.48 with 63.6% in the age group between 21 and 40 years, and 69.6% were male. Tubulointerstitial inflammation was observed in 90.2% cases with 49.4% showing moderate while 4.5% showing severe degree of inflammation. A strong association of both the type and severity of tubulointerstitial inflammation was found with M, E, T, and C scores ( value < 0.05). Conclusion. The high-frequency and strong statistical association of tubulointerstitial inflammation with the M, E, T, and C scores in our study elucidate its prognostic role in the progression and management of IgA nephropathy.

  • The Growing Challenge of Chronic Kidney Disease: An Overview of Current
           Knowledge

    • Abstract: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is becoming one of the world’s most prevalent noncommunicable chronic diseases. The World Health Organization projects CKD to become the 5th most common chronic disease in 2040. Causes of CKD are multifactorial and diverse, but early-stage symptoms are often few and silent. Progression rates are highly variable, but patients encounter both an increased risk for end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) as well as increased cardiovascular risk. End-stage kidney disease incidence is generally low, but every single case carries a significant burden of illness and healthcare costs, making prevention by early intervention both desirable and worthwhile. This review focuses on the prevalence, diagnosis, and causes of CKD. In addition, we discuss the developments in the general treatment of CKD, with particular attention to what can be initiated in general practice. With the addition of recent landmark findings and the expansion of the indication for using sodium–glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors, there are now new effective treatments to add to standard therapy. This will also be relevant for primary care physicians as many patients with CKD have their family physician as their primary health care professional handling kidney function preservation. In the future, more precise and less invasive diagnostic methods may not only improve the determination of the underlying cause of CKD but may also carry information regarding which treatment to use (i.e. personalized medicine). This could lead to a reduced number of preventive treatments per individual, while at the same time improving the prognosis. This review summarizes ongoing efforts in this area.

  • Critically Ill Patients with Renal Hyperfiltration: Optimizing Antibiotic
           Dose

    • Abstract: Renal hyperfiltration (RHF) is a prevalent phenomenon in critically ill patients characterized by augmented renal clearance (ARC) and increased of elimination of renally eliminated medications. Multiple risk factors had been described and potential mechanisms may contribute to the occurrence of this condition. RHF and ARC are associated with the risk of suboptimal exposure to antibiotics increasing the risk of treatment failure and unfavorable patient outcomes. The current review discusses the available evidence related to the RHF phenomenon, including definition, epidemiology, risk factors, pathophysiology, pharmacokinetic variability, and considerations for optimizing the dosage of antibiotics in critically ill patients.

  • Magnetic Resonance Visibility, Artifacts, and Overall Safety of the
           Self-Locating Peritoneal Dialysis Catheter with a Tungsten Tip

    • Abstract: Background. The self-locating peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter, contains a tungsten tip. The effects of magnetic resonance (MR) on the catheter were evaluated, emphasizing its MR signal, artifacts, ferromagnetism, and possible heating production during the MR sequences. Methods. The catheter was studied in an ex vivo model using a 1.5T MR system and placed into a plastic box containing saline solution. Acquisitions on coronal and axial planes were obtained on fast gradient-echo T1-weighted and fast spin-echo T2-weighted. In vivo abdominal MR exams were also carried out. Results. Overall, the catheter had good visibility. In all sequences, an extensive paramagnetic blooming artifact was detected at the level of the tip tungsten ballast, with a circular artifact of 5 cm in diameter. The catheter showed no magnetic deflection, rotation, or movements during all MR sequences. After imaging, the temperature of the saline solution did not change compared to the basal measurement. Patients safely underwent abdominal MR. Conclusions. The results point to the possibility of safely performing MR in PD patients carrying the self-locating catheter. The self-locating PD catheter is stable when subjected to a 1.5T MR system. However, it creates some visual interference, preventing an accurate study of the tissues surrounding the tungsten tip.
