Survival Advantage of African American Dialysis Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease Causes Related to APOL1.

Cardiorenal Med 2019 Apr 17;9(4):212-221. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Kidney Disease Branch, NIDDK, Bethesda, Maryland, USA,

Background: Observational studies show that African American (AA) dialysis patients have longer survival than European Americans. We hypothesized that apolipoprotein L1 (APOL1) genetic variation, associated with nephropathy in AAs, contributes to the survival advantage in AA dialysis patients.

Methods: We examined the association between race and mortality among 37,097 adult dialysis patients, including 54% AAs and 46% European Americans from a large dialysis organization (entry period from July 2001 to June 2006, follow-up through June 2007), within each cause of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) category associated with APOL1 renal risk variants using Cox proportional hazard models.

Diagnostic role of renal biopsy in PLAR1-antibody-positive patients with nephrotic syndrome.

Mod Pathol 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

III. Department of Medicine, University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf, Hamburg, Germany.

Renal biopsy is the gold standard for diagnosis of membranous nephropathy. Circulating PLAR1 antibody found in 75% of patients with membranous nephropathy is very specific for the diagnosis of this disease. Therefore, the question arises whether PLAR1-antibody-positive patients still need a diagnostic renal biopsy. Read More

Diagnosis and Management of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor-Associated Renal Toxicity: Illustrative Case and Review.

Oncologist 2019 Mar 22. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Division of Oncology, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

Immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) are monoclonal antibodies directed at negative regulatory components on T cells, such as cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen 4, programmed cell death-1 (PD-1), and its ligand, programmed cell death ligand-1. ICIs initate antitumor immunity; however, these agents are associated with immune-related adverse events (irAEs) that may affect a variety of organs. Renal irAEs most commonly present with asymptomatic acute kidney injury (AKI), which is often detected by routine laboratory testing. Read More

Drug-induced tubulointerstitial nephritis: hypersensitivity and necroinflammatory pathways.

Authors:
Allison A Eddy

Pediatr Nephrol 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Pediatrics, University of British Columbia and BC Children's Hospital Research Institute, Vancouver, Canada.

More than 250 drugs carry a small but important dose-independent risk of initiating a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction that leads to acute tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN). Clinical manifestations are often non-specific, making epidemiological studies challenging. In severe cases, if cessation of the offending drug is not followed by a prompt improvement in renal function, corticosteroid therapy appears to enhance renal recovery rates. Read More

Allopurinol-induced Drug Reactions with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms Syndrome with Interstitial Nephritis.

Indian J Nephrol 2018 Nov-Dec;28(6):477-481

Laboratory of Pathology Souss, Agadir, Morocco.

Allopurinol-induced drug reactions with eosinophilia and systemic symptoms (DRESS) is a severe illness related to hypersensitivity syndrome characterized by fever, skin rash, lymph node enlargement, hematological abnormalities, especially eosinophilia and atypical lymphocytosis, and single or multiple organ involvement. The syndrome is difficult to diagnose in view of its clinical heterogeneity and long latency period within 8 weeks after start treatment. We report a case of DRESS syndrome in a 64-year-old man, induced by allopurinol treatment for asymptomatic hyperuricemia, started 8 weeks earlier but stopped only 3 days after because of the onset of rash.

Acute Kidney Injury in Pediatric Treated with Vancomycin and Piperacillin-Tazobactam in Tertiary Care Hospital.

Int J Pediatr 2018 16;2018:9256528. Epub 2018 Dec 16.

College of Pharmacy, King Saud Bin Abdul-Aziz University for Health Sciences (KSAU-HS), Ministry of National Guard Health Affairs, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Background: Vancomycin and piperacillin-tazobactam (PTZ) are commonly used as empirical therapy for patients with health care associated infections. Vancomycin has been recognized as a nephrotoxic agent and in a few cases in the literature PTZ has been associated with interstitial nephritis nevertheless; the combination of these agents has routinely been used for many years. However, there have been some observational studies that showed high rates of acute kidney injury (AKI) in patients receiving vancomycin and PTZ concomitant treatment compared to patients receiving vancomycin alone.

Citrullinated histone H3 expression in anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis in older Japanese autopsy patients.

Geriatr Gerontol Int 2019 Mar 8;19(3):259-264. Epub 2019 Jan 8.

Department of Pathology, Tokyo Metropolitan Geriatric Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

Aim: Neutrophil extracellular traps play key roles in the necrotizing vasculitis associated with anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis (AAV). However, the relationships between neutrophil extracellular traps formation and the distribution and phase of vasculitis are not well understood. In the present study, we clarified the clinicopathological characteristics of older AAV patients, as well as the expression of citrullinated histone H3 (citH3), a marker of neutrophil extracellular traps, in autopsied AAV patients.

Telavancin-associated acute kidney injury
.

Clin Nephrol 2019 Mar;91(3):187-191

Telavancin is a lipoglycopeptide semi-synthetic derivative of vancomycin used for select infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria including . Human clinical trials suggest that telavancin is potentially nephrotoxic, however there is no histopathologic description of acute kidney injury (AKI) in humans. An animal model has recently characterized the histologic changes associated with telavancin-induced AKI as proximal tubular injury with numerous phagolysosomes. Read More

A composite of urinary biomarkers for differentiating between tubulointerstitial inflammation and interstitial fibrosis/tubular atrophy in kidney allografts.

Ann Hepatobiliary Pancreat Surg 2018 Nov 27;22(4):310-320. Epub 2018 Nov 27.

Asan Institute for Life Sciences, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Backgrounds/aims: Compared with a single urinary biomarker, a composite of multiple urinary biomarkers may be more helpful for differentiating tubulointerstitial inflammation from interstitial fibrosis/tubular atrophy (IFTA) in kidney allografts.

Methods: In this cross-sectional cohort study, we collected urine samples from 115 patients with for-cause biopsy, 53 patients with stable allografts, and 50 living kidney donors. We measured the urinary levels of transglutaminase 2 (TG2), syndecan-4 (SDC4), alpha 1 microglobulin (A1M), interferon-inducible protein 10 (IP-10), interleukin 6 (IL-6), and monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1).
