Innate immune cells are key contributors to kidney inflammation and fibrosis. Infiltration of the renal parenchyma by innate immune cells is governed by multiple signalling pathways. Since the discovery of the chemokine fractalkine (CX3CL1) and its receptor, CX3CR1 over twenty years ago, a wealth of evidence has emerged linking CX3CL1-CX3CR1 signalling to renal pathologies in both acute and chronic kidney diseases (CKD).

This study tested the hypothesis that therapy with double overexpression of miR-19a-3p and miR-20a-5p (miR ) to human inducible pluripotent stem cell-derived mesenchymal stem cells (iPS-MSCs) was superior to iPS-MSCs alone for preserving renal function in rat with pre-existing chronic kidney disease (CKD), followed by ischaemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. In vitro study demonstrated that the protein expressions of oxidative stress (NOX-1/NOX-2/NOX4/oxidized protein/p22phox), inflammatory downstream signalling (TLR2&4/MyD88/TRAF6/IKK-ß/p-NFκB/IL-1ß/IL-6/MMP-9) and cell apoptosis/death signalling (cleaved caspase-3/mitochondrial Bax/p-ERKs/p-JNK/p-p38) at time-points of 24-hour/48-hour cell cultures were significantly increased in p-Cresol-treated NRK-52E cells than in the control that was significantly reversed by miR-19a-3p-transfected iPS-MSC (all P < .001).

Purpose: Shared decision-making (SDM) about the type of renal replacement therapy to use is a matter of great importance involving patients, their families, and health treatment teams. This review aims to synthesize the volume of qualitative work explaining the factors influencing SDM regarding renal replacement therapy.Methods: A systematic review and qualitative meta-synthesis approach recommended by JBI was used, six databases were searched.

Families of pediatric solid organ transplant recipients need ongoing education and support in the first 30 days following hospital discharge for the transplantation. The purpose of this report is to describe the feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of a mHealth family-self management intervention, (), designed to improve post-discharge outcomes of coping, family quality of life, self-efficacy, family self-management, and utilization of health care resources. We enrolled 46 primary family members. Read More
