Molecular Targeting of Renal Inflammation using Drug Delivery Technology to Inhibit NF-kB Improves Renal Recovery in Chronic Kidney Disease.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2020 Jun 15. Epub 2020 Jun 15.

Neurology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, United States.

Inflammation is a major determinant for the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nuclear-factor-kappa-B (NF-kB) is a master transcription factor up-regulated in CKD that promotes inflammation, 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-kB p50 subunit (p50i) fused to a protein carrier (elastin-like polypeptide, ELP) and equipped with a cell-penetrating peptide (SynB1).

Targeted VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) Therapy Induces Long-Term Renal Recovery in Chronic Kidney Disease via Macrophage Polarization.

Hypertension 2019 11 23;74(5):1113-1123. Epub 2019 Sep 23.

From the Departments of Physiology and Biophysics (J.E.E., E.W., M.L.W., A.R.C.), University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson.

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) universally associates with renal microvascular rarefaction and inflammation, but whether a link exists between these 2 processes is unclear. We designed a therapeutic construct of VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) fused to an ELP (elastin-like polypeptide) carrier and show that it improves renal function in experimental renovascular disease. We test the hypothesis that ELP-VEGF therapy will improve CKD, and that recovery will be driven by decreasing microvascular rarefaction partly via modulation of macrophage phenotype and inflammation.

A Novel CNN-Based CAD System for Early Assessment of Transplanted Kidney Dysfunction.

Sci Rep 2019 04 11;9(1):5948. Epub 2019 Apr 11.

Bioengineering Department, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USA.

This paper introduces a deep-learning based computer-aided diagnostic (CAD) system for the early detection of acute renal transplant rejection. For noninvasive detection of kidney rejection at an early stage, the proposed CAD system is based on the fusion of both imaging markers and clinical biomarkers. The former are derived from diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DW-MRI) by estimating the apparent diffusion coefficients (ADC) representing the perfusion of the blood and the diffusion of the water inside the transplanted kidney.

Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology and Neuroradiology of IRCCS, San Matteo University Hospital Foundation, Pavia, Italy.

Renal ectopia and fusion anomalies are Congenital Anomalies of the Kidney and the Urinary Tract (CAKUT) that are usually incidentally detected and asymptomatic. Patients affected present a higher risk of complications like recurrent urinary tract infections or obstruction. Pancake kidney (PK) is one of the rarest types of renal anomaly with complete fusion of the superior, mild and inferior poles of both kidneys in the pelvic cavity. Read More

The Coexistence of a Horseshoe Kidney and Meckel Diverticulum With Dramatic Mobility Revealed Through 99mTc Pertechnetate Imaging.

Clin Nucl Med 2018 Nov;43(11):825-827

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, The First Affiliated Hospital, College of Medicine, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, People's Republic of China.

A previously healthy 11-year-old boy with intermittent abdominal pain and bloody stool underwent Meckel scintigraphy. On the initial images, there was a faint U-shaped activity in the mid-abdominal region, which gradually faded and evolved into distinct foci of radiotracer accumulation in the later images. One of the foci changed its location during the study, suspected as moving Meckel diverticulum. Read More

Diaphanospondylodysostosis: Refining the prenatal diagnosis of a rare skeletal disorder.

Eur J Med Genet 2019 Mar 10;62(3):167-171. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

The Danek Gertner Institute of Human Genetics, Sheba Medical Center, Tel Hashomer, Israel; Sackler Faculty of Medicine, Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel. Electronic address:

Diaphanospondylodysostosis (DSD) is a rare autosomal recessive skeletal disorder, characterized mainly by ossification defects in vertebrae, thorax malformations, renal cystic dysplasia and usually death in the perinatal period. DSD is caused by mutations in the bone morphogenetic protein-binding endothelial regulator (BMPER) gene. We describe the prenatal findings of a non-consanguineous Jewish couple (shared Balkan origin), with three affected fetuses that presented with malformations in the spine and chest, reduced ossification of the skull and spine, horseshoe kidney and increased nuchal translucency.

Department of Biochemistry, The University of Western Ontario, 1151 Richmond Street, London, ON N6A 5C1, Canada.

microRNA (miRNA) activity and regulation are of increasing interest as new therapeutic targets. Traditional approaches to assess miRNA levels in cells rely on RNA sequencing or quantitative PCR. While useful, these approaches are based on RNA extraction and cannot be applied in real-time to observe miRNA activity with single-cell resolution. Read More

Department of Surgery, Dunedin Hospital and Dunedin School of Medicine, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.

Retrievable inferior vena cava filters carry a risk of penetrating into adjacent structures, which may necessitate open retrieval. We report a unique case of a retrievable inferior vena cava filter penetrating into an overlying horseshoe kidney, leading to clinical hematuria. After repeated failed endovascular retrieval, an open approach with associated access challenges was required. Read More
