A revolution in cellular measurement technology is underway. Whereas prior studies have been able to analyze only the averaged outputs from renal tissue, we now can accurately monitor genome-wide gene expression, regulation, function, cellular history, and cellular interactions in thousands of individual cells in a single experiment. These methods are key drivers in changing our previous morphotype-based organ and disease descriptions to unbiased genomic definitions and therefore improving our understanding of kidney development, homeostasis, and disease...

Although blood pressure (BP) control is a major goal in chronic kidney disease (CKD), no worldwide overview of either its achievement or antihypertensive prescriptions is currently available. To evaluate this we compared crude prevalence of uncontrolled BP among 17 cohort studies, including 34 602 individuals with estimated glomerular filtration rate under 60 ml/min/1.73 m2 and treated hypertension across four continents, and estimated observed to expected prevalence ratios, adjusted for potential confounders...

Volume overload has been shown to be an independent risk factor for mortality in patients receiving chronic dialysis, but data in non-dialysis patients are scarce. Therefore we evaluated the prognostic value of extracellular fluid (ECF) volume for chronic kidney disease (CKD) progression and mortality in a prospective hospital-based cohort with CKD stage 1-4 (NephroTest Study). ECF (scaled to body surface area) and the measured glomerular filtration rate (mGFR) were determined using the distribution volume and clearance of 51Cr-EDTA, respectively...

Steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome is a frequent cause of chronic kidney disease almost inevitably progressing to end-stage renal disease. More than 58 monogenic causes of SRNS have been discovered and majority of known steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome causing genes are predominantly expressed in glomerular podocytes, placing them at the center of disease pathogenesis. Herein, we describe two unrelated families with steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome with homozygous mutations in the KIRREL1 gene. One mutation showed high frequency in the European population (minor allele frequency 0...

A genome-wide association study (GWAS) indicated that myeloperoxidase-ANCA associated vasculitis (AAV) is associated with HLA-DQ. However, susceptibility alleles in these loci have been under-investigated. Here we genotyped 258 Chinese patients with myeloperoxidase-AAV and 597 healthy control individuals at HLA DRB1, DQA1, DQB1 and DPB1, and extracted the encoded amino acid sequences from the IMGT/HLA database. The replication cohort included 97 cases and 107 controls. T cell epitopes of myeloperoxidase were predicted and docked to the HLA molecules...

Immunoglobulin light chain amyloidosis is the most frequent type of renal amyloidosis in the United States, accounting for 81% of cases. Accurate typing is crucial for early diagnosis and treatment of immunoglobulin-derived amyloidosis and to avoid treating other amyloidoses with potentially toxic chemotherapy. Immunofluorescence is the first step to type renal immunoglobulin-derived amyloidosis but the performance characteristics of this method are largely unknown. Here, we establish the sensitivity and specificity of immunofluorescence for diagnosing immunoglobulin-derived amyloidosis in patients whose amyloid typing was performed by the current gold standard of laser microdissection/mass spectrometry...

Onco-nephrology is an emerging field in medicine. Patients with cancer may suffer from kidney diseases because of the cancer itself and cancer-related therapy. It is critical for nephrologists to be knowledgeable of cancer biology and therapy in order to be fully integrated in the multidisciplinary team and optimally manage patients with cancer and kidney diseases. In a recent international meeting, the key issues in this challenging clinical interface were addressed, including many unresolved basic science questions, such as the high tumor incidence in kidney transplant recipients...

All available methods for assessing renal oxygenation are limited either in terms of their temporal or spatial resolution, their ability to quantify tissue oxygen tension (PO2 ), or in the settings in which they can be applied. Kodama and colleagues have developed a new method that utilizes dynamic nuclear polarization magnetic resonance imaging and an oxygen-sensitive paramagnetic agent (OX63). This new method generates quantitative maps of renal tissue PO2 in millimeters of mercury.

Jeong et al. reported the results of a randomized controlled trial in patients on hemodialysis in which intradialytic protein supplementation, with or without exercise, failed to show any beneficial effect on physical function, vascular health, and nutritional markers. These data provide an opportunity to reconsider the appropriate strategy to gain the most benefit from these otherwise proven interventions, that is, prescribing the right intervention for the right patient, at the right dose and at the right time...

Little information is available about the risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) after preeclampsia. The review of Covella et al. demonstrated that former preeclamptic women have a significant risk of ESRD in the medium term. However, it is still unknown which preeclamptic woman are at higher risk for progressive kidney disease. After delivery, women who had preeclampsia, particularly those with persistent hypertension, symptomatic proteinuria, or microalbuminuria, should receive a regular checkup for kidney disease...

The Standardized Outcomes in Nephrology (SONG) initiative is designed to improve research productivity by building consensus. Stakeholders involved with peritoneal dialysis (PD) have put life participation on top of their list, along with treatment-related infection, cardiovascular complications, and patient and technique survival. This should lead to improved reporting of these outcomes and their prioritization in future research.
