Humoral Response to the Pfizer BNT162b2 #Vaccine in Patients Undergoing Maintenance #Hemodialysis

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is associated with higher morbidity and mortality in patients on maintenance hemodialysis. Patients on dialysis tend to have a reduced immune response to infection or vaccination. We aimed to assess, for the first time to the best of our knowledge, the humoral response following vaccination with the BNT162b2 vaccine in patients on maintenance hemodialysis and the factors associated with it. Design, … Continue reading Humoral Response to the Pfizer BNT162b2 #Vaccine in Patients Undergoing Maintenance #Hemodialysis

Risk for recurrent #cardiovascular disease events among patients with #diabetes and chronic kidney disease

Adults who have experienced multiple cardiovascular disease (CVD) events have a very high risk for additional events. Diabetes and chronic kidney disease (CKD) are each associated with an increased risk for recurrent CVD events following a myocardial infarction (MI). Methods We compared the risk for recurrent CVD events among US adults with health insurance who were hospitalized for an MI between 2014 and 2017 and … Continue reading Risk for recurrent #cardiovascular disease events among patients with #diabetes and chronic kidney disease

Risk Factor Control and #Cardiovascular Event Risk in People With Type 2 #Diabetes in Primary and Secondary Prevention Settings

To examine the association between the degree of risk factor control and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in type 2 diabetes and to assess if the presence of cardio-renal disease modifies these relationships. A retrospective cohort study using data from English practices from CPRD GOLD (Clinical Practice Research Datalink) and the SCI-Diabetes dataset (Scottish Care Information-Diabetes), with linkage to hospital and mortality data. We identified 101 749 … Continue reading Risk Factor Control and #Cardiovascular Event Risk in People With Type 2 #Diabetes in Primary and Secondary Prevention Settings

Low High‐Sensitivity C‐ #Reactive Protein Level in Korean Patients With Chronic #Kidney Disease and Its Predictive Significance for Cardiovascular Events, Mortality, and Adverse Kidney Outcomes: Results From KNOW‐CKD

Inflammation levels are lower in East Asians than in Western people. We studied the association between high‐sensitivity hs‐CRP (C‐reactive protein) and adverse outcomes in Korean patients with chronic kidney disease. Methods and Results We included 2018 participants from the KNOW‐CKD (Korean Cohort Study for Outcome in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease) between April 2011 and February 2016. The primary outcome was a composite of extended … Continue reading Low High‐Sensitivity C‐ #Reactive Protein Level in Korean Patients With Chronic #Kidney Disease and Its Predictive Significance for Cardiovascular Events, Mortality, and Adverse Kidney Outcomes: Results From KNOW‐CKD

Effect of Finerenone on Chronic Kidney Disease Outcomes in Type 2 Diabetes

Finerenone, a nonsteroidal, selective mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist, reduced albuminuria in short-term trials involving patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and type 2 diabetes. However, its long-term effects on kidney and cardiovascular outcomes are unknown. ..During a median follow-up of 2.6 years, a primary outcome event occurred in 504 of 2833 patients (17.8%) in the finerenone group and 600 of 2841 patients (21.1%) in the placebo … Continue reading Effect of Finerenone on Chronic Kidney Disease Outcomes in Type 2 Diabetes

Patients with chronic kidney disease have a high risk of adverse kidney and cardiovascular outcomes. The effect of dapagliflozin in patients with chronic kidney disease, with or without type 2 diabetes, is not known.. ..The independent data monitoring committee recommended stopping the trial because of efficacy. Over a median of 2.4 years, a primary outcome event occurred in 197 of 2152 participants (9.2%) in the … Continue reading #Dapagliflozin in Patients with Chronic #Kidney Disease

Natural history of acute #kidney disease in patients with #cirrhosis

In 2012, KDIGO group proposed new definitions for Acute Kidney Injury (AKI), Acute Kidney Disease (AKD) and Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). According to the definition adapted by the International Club of Ascites (ICA), AKI has been extensively investigated in patients with cirrhosis. On the contrary, there are currently no data on the epidemiology and clinical outcome of AKD in these patients. The aim of the … Continue reading Natural history of acute #kidney disease in patients with #cirrhosis

The change in #kidney function was associated with #carotid artery plaque in a community-based population: a cohort study

We performed the current study to evaluate the association between dynamic change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and the risk of carotid artery plaque (CAP) in a community-based population A total number of 37,093 Chinese adults (21,790 men and 15,303 women, aged 42.6±11.6 years) free of chronic kidney diseases were enrolled. The change in eGFR was calculated based on two measurements in 2013 and … Continue reading The change in #kidney function was associated with #carotid artery plaque in a community-based population: a cohort study

2020 Conversion of Urine Protein–Creatinine Ratio or Urine Dipstick Protein to Urine Albumin–Creatinine Ratio for Use in Chronic Kidney Disease Screening and Prognosis

Measuring albuminuria is the preferred method for defining and staging chronic kidney disease (CKD), but total urine protein or dipstick protein is often measured instead. This analysis presents equations for converting urine protein–creatinine ratio and dipstick protein to urine albumin–creatinine ratio, and finds that both may help in CKD screening, staging, and prognosis.. Equations to convert urine PCR and dipstick protein to ACR were developed … Continue reading 2020 Conversion of Urine Protein–Creatinine Ratio or Urine Dipstick Protein to Urine Albumin–Creatinine Ratio for Use in Chronic Kidney Disease Screening and Prognosis
