The modified CKD-EPI equation may be not more accurate than CKD-EPI equation in determining glomerular filtration rate in Chinese patients with chronic kidney disease.

J Nephrol 2017 Jun 11;30(3):397-402. Epub 2016 Apr 11.

Department of Research, The Third Hospital, Hebei Medical University, No.139 Ziqiang Road, Qiaoxi District, Shijiazhuang, Hebei, 050051, People's Republic of China.

Aim: To investigate the application of the new modified Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (mCKD-EPI) equation developed by Liu for the measurement of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in Chinese patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and to evaluate whether this modified form is more accurate than the original one in clinical practice.

Methods: GFR was determined simultaneously by 3 methods: (a) Tc-diethylene triamine pentaacetic acid (Tc-DTPA) dual plasma sample clearance method (mGFR), which was used as the reference standard; (b) CKD-EPI equation (eGFRckdepi); (c) modified CKD-EPI equation (eGFRmodified). Concordance correlation and Passing-Bablok regression were used to compare the validity of eGFRckdepi and eGFRmodified. Read More

Dietary acid load and rapid progression to end-stage renal disease of diabetic nephropathy in Westernized South Asian people.

J Nephrol 2011 Jan-Feb;24(1):11-7

Top Institute Food and Nutrition, Wageningen, The Netherlands.

Diabetic nephropathy is now the most common cause of end-stage renal failure in many countries of the world. Despite increasing implementation of preventive treatment, the chance that an individual diabetic patient will reach end-stage renal failure has been increasing rather than decreasing during recent decades. Current dietary habits in The Netherlands and the rest of the Western world are slowly shifting from relatively alkalinizing (e. Read More

A complete genomic analysis of the apolipoprotein E gene in Chinese patients with lipoprotein glomerulopathy.

J Nephrol 2007 Sep-Oct;20(5):568-75

Research Institute of Nephrology, Jinling Hospital, Nanjing University School of Medicine, Nanjing - China.

Mutations of the apolipoprotein E (apo E) gene are thought to play an etiological role in lipoprotein glomerulopathy (LPG), a novel kidney disease. Evidence suggesting that mutated forms of apo E may be present in LPG includes elevated plasma concentrations of apo E in LPG patients and deposition of apo E in their glomerular capillaries, and there are published reports indicating that mutations of the apo E gene are present in the Japanese LPG patient population. Conflicting reports, however, exist in the current literature. Read More

A case of essential thrombocytosis developing nephrotic syndrome and severe endothelial damage.

J Nephrol 2006 Sep-Oct;19(5):656-9

Second Department of Internal Medicine, National Defense Medical College, Saitama-Japan.

We present a 75-year-old Japanese man with essential thrombocytosis presenting nephrotic syndrome. Proteinuria developed soon after the patient was given a diagnosis of essential thrombocytosis and, 4 years later, it increased to a nephrotic range. Renal biopsy revealed one third of the obtained glomeruli totally sclerotic and the other glomeruli showed a marked thickening of the glomerular basement membrane and mild mesangial proliferation.

Two cases of pure red-cell aplasia due to anti-erythropoietin antibodies.

J Nephrol 2005 Jan-Feb;18(1):102-5

Department of Internal Medicine, College of Medicine, Seoul National University, Seoul-Korea.

We report on two Korean patients who developed pure red-cell aplasia (PRCA) due to anti-erythropoietin (EPO) antibodies. The first patient became refractory to EPO treatment after a good response for an initial 26 months. Anti-EPO antibodies were detected by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and by radioimmunoprecipitation (RIPA), and these were found to inhibit erythroid colony formation by in vitro bioassay.
