Molecular targeting of renal inflammation using drug delivery technology to inhibit NF-κB improves renal recovery in chronic kidney disease.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2020 Jul 15;319(1):F139-F148. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Department of Neurology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, Mississippi.

Inflammation is a major determinant for the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). NF-κB is a master transcription factor upregulated in CKD that promotes inflammation and regulates apoptosis and vascular remodeling. We aimed to modulate this pathway for CKD therapy in a swine model of CKD using a peptide inhibitor of the NF-κB p50 subunit (p50i) fused to a protein carrier [elastin-like polypeptide (ELP)] and equipped with a cell-penetrating peptide (SynB1).

Two applications for laparoscopic combined ventral and dorsal side approach in the lateral decubitus position: 1) right-modified retroperitoneal lymph node dissection, 2) nephrectomy for horseshoe kidney.

Urology 2020 Jun 4. Epub 2020 Jun 4.

Department of Urology, Japanese Red Cross Wakayama Medical Center, 4-20, Komatsubara-dori, Wakayama City, Wakayama, Japan.

Background: Laparoscopic retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND) in metastatic testicular cancer is a technically challenging procedure. In right-modified RPLND, retrocaval lymph nodes are often not visible and cannot be adequately dissected using only the transperitoneal approach. In laparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) for horseshoe kidney, the kidney cannot be sufficiently moved due to its connection to the contralateral kidney, and the isthmus and lower poles have separate blood supplies arising from the aorta or iliac artery.

J Int Med Res 2020 Jun;48(6):300060520926736

Department of Urology, the Fourth Medical Center of PLA General Hospital, Beijing, China.

A horseshoe kidney is a congenital kidney malformation commonly associated with complications such as hydronephrosis, renal calculi, and infections of the renal pelvis. Renal cell carcinoma is extremely rare in a horseshoe kidney; once it occurs, however, it is intractable because of vascular abnormalities. This is especially true in laparoscopic nephron-sparing surgery, even for tumors of <4 cm in diameter. Read More

Fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair with concomitant horseshoe kidney.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2020 Mar 1;6(1):14-17. Epub 2020 Feb 1.

Department of Endovascular and Vascular Surgery, Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center, Wilkes-Barre, Pa.

Horseshoe kidney (HSK) is a rare anatomic anomaly that poses surgical challenges in the setting of abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. An endovascular approach is safer for patients yet carries technical challenge because of variable renal vasculature. We present the case of a patient with an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and concomitant HSK who underwent successful repair with a custom fenestrated endograft with preservation of a midaortic renal artery.

Liganded T3 receptor β2 inhibits the positive feedback autoregulation of the gene for GATA2, a transcription factor critical for thyrotropin production.

PLoS One 2020 15;15(1):e0227646. Epub 2020 Jan 15.

Second Division, Department of Internal Medicine, Hamamatsu University School of Medicine, Hamamatsu, Shizuoka, Japan.

The serum concentration of thyrotropin (thyroid stimulating hormone, TSH) is drastically reduced by small increase in the levels of thyroid hormones (T3 and its prohormone, T4); however, the mechanism underlying this relationship is unknown. TSH consists of the chorionic gonadotropin α (CGA) and the β chain (TSHβ). The expression of both peptides is induced by the transcription factor GATA2, a determinant of the thyrotroph and gonadotroph differentiation in the pituitary. Read More
