INTRODUCTION: Oncogenic osteomalacia (Onc-Ost) is a paraneoplastic phenomenon characterized by hypophosphatemia due to elevated fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF-23). Onc-Ost has been previously reported in patients with germ line mesenchymal tumors and solid organ malignancies. This is the first report of aggressive natural killer (NK) T-cell lymphoma presenting as Onc-Ost. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 33-year-old Vietnamese female with active hepatitis B and Mycobacterium avium complex, on ongoing therapy with tenofovir disoproxil, azithromycin, and ethambutol, presented with persistent fevers and developed refractory hypophosphatemia...

INTRODUCTION: Ferric citrate (FC) is indicated as an oral iron replacement for iron deficiency anemia in adult patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) not on dialysis. The recommended starting dose is one 1-g tablet three times daily (TID). This study investigated long-term efficacy and safety of different FC dosing regimens for treating anemia in nondialysis-dependent CKD (NDD-CKD). METHODS: In this phase 4, randomized, open-label, multicenter study, patients with anemia with NDD-CKD (estimated glomerular filtration rate, ≥20 mL/min and <60 mL/min) were randomized 1:1 to one FC tablet (1-g equivalent to 210 mg ferric iron) TID (3 g/day) or 2 tablets twice daily (BID; 4 g/day)...

BACKGROUND: Hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) is the most common cause of acute kidney failure in children younger than five years. Central nervous system involvement occurs in 15% of patients, with clinical manifestations including confusion, coma, seizures, stroke, and cortical blindness. Ocular involvement in children with HUS is rare, but retinal and choroidal hemorrhages as well as ischemic retinopathy due to thrombotic microangiopathic lesions have been documented. PATIENT DESCRIPTION: We describe a 26-month-old girl with typical HUS who experienced severe visual loss likely resulting from cytotoxic injury of both lateral geniculate nuclei with bilateral damage to optic pathways coupled with macular thrombotic microangiopathic lesions...

During 2016 to 2020, GVI-1 type infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) strains were sporadically reported across China, indicating a new epidemic trend of the virus. Here we investigated the molecular characteristics and pathogenicity of two newly isolated GVI-1 type IBV virus strains (CK/CH/TJ1904 and CK/CH/NP2011) from infected chicken farms in China. Genetic evolution analysis of the S1 gene showed the highest homology with the GVI-1 representative strain, TC07-2. Phylogenetic analysis and recombination analysis of the virus genomes indicated that newly isolated strains in China may be independently derived from recombination events that occurred between GI-19 and GI-22 strains and early GVI-1 viruses...

RATIONALE & OBJECTIVE: The utility of conventional upper reference limits (URL) for N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) and high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hsTnT) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) remains debated. We analyzed the distribution of hsTnT and NT-proBNP in people with CKD in ambulatory settings to examine the diagnostic value of conventional URL in this population. STUDY DESIGN: Observational study. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS: We studied participants of the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort with CKD and no self-reported history of cardiovascular disease (CVD)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe the patterns of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) among patients with kidney stones and analyze the alkali content of commonly used CAM therapies. METHODS: We prospectively conducted structured interviews with patients who presented to a specialty stone clinic for the management of kidney stones. Open-ended questions were used to elicit information regarding CAM knowledge, formulation/dosing, and patterns of use. Several common CAM therapies were then analyzed for their alkali, organic anion, and sugar content...

BACKGROUND: Although the number of patients with end stage kidney disease is growing, the number of patients that perform dialysis at home has decreased during the past two decades. The aim of this study is to explore time trends in the use of home dialysis in the Netherlands. METHODS: Dialysis episodes of patients who started dialysis treatment were studied using Dutch registry data (RENINE). The uptake of home dialysis between 1997 through 2016 was evaluated in time periods of 5 years...

Ischemic preconditioning (IPC) is the most powerful endogenous cardioprotective form of cellular adaptation. However, the inhibitory or augmenting mechanism underlying cardioprotection via IPC remains largely unknown. Suppressor of cytokine signaling-3 (SOCS3) is a cytokine-inducible potent negative feedback regulator of the signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 (STAT3) signaling pathway. Here, we aimed to determine whether cardiac SOCS3 deficiency and IPC would synergistically reduce infarct size after myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury...

COVID-19 has changed the nature of medical consultations, emphasizing virtual patient counseling, with relevance for patients with diabetes insipidus (DI) or hyponatremia. The main complication of desmopressin treatment in DI is dilutional hyponatraemia. Since plasma sodium monitoring is not always possible in times of COVID-19, we recommend to delay the desmopressin dose once a week until aquaresis occurs allowing excess retained water to be excreted. Patients should measure their body weight daily. Patients with DI admitted to the hospital with COVID-19 have a high risk for mortality due to volume depletion...

Uncemented bipolar hemiarthroplasty (UBHA) has been widely used to treat geriatric displaced femoral neck fracture (GDFNF), which results in a high 30-day mortality rate among the elderly. To date, few studies have focused on the risk factors for mortality after UBHA for GDFNF. In this retrospective study, elderly patients (age ≥70 years) who underwent UBHA for GDFNF were studied in order to provide helpful insight into the risk factors for mortality postoperatively. This retrospective study enrolled 835 elderly patients who underwent UBHA for GDFNF from January 2010 to December 2017...

In multiple myeloma diseases, monoclonal immunoglobulin light chains (LCs) are abundantly produced, with, as a consequence in some cases, the formation of deposits affecting various organs, such as the kidney, while in other cases remaining soluble up to concentrations of several g·L-1 in plasma. The exact factors crucial for the solubility of LCs are poorly understood, but it can be hypothesized that their amino acid sequence plays an important role. Determining the precise sequences of patient-derived LCs is therefore highly desirable...

BACKGROUND: Rabbit antithymocyte globulins (rATGs) are polyclonal antibodies used to prevent acute cellular rejection in kidney transplantation. Their dosing remains largely empirical and the question of an individualized dose is still unresolved. METHODS: Data from a prospective study in 17 kidney transplant patients were used to develop a model describing the dose-concentration-response relationship of rATG with T-lymphocyte subpopulation counts over time. The model was validated using an independent cohort of kidney transplant patients treated by rATG in the same center...
