Dysregulation of multiple genes is an important risk factor for acute kidney injury (AKI). Numerous genes, such as proinflammatory cytokines, intracellular cell adhesion molecules (ICAMs), and nitric oxide synthases (NOSs), are implicated in AKI pathogenesis. However, the molecular mechanisms involved in the dysregulation of these genes are still obscure. Read More

Department of Anesthesia, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA; Anesthesiology Services, Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Background: Whilst intraoperative hypotension is associated with postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), the link between intraoperative hypotension and acute kidney disease (AKD), defined as continuing renal dysfunction for up to 3 months after exposure, has not yet been studied.

Methods: We conducted a retrospective multicentre cohort study using data from noncardiac, non-obstetric surgery extracted from a US electronic health records database. Primary outcome was the association between intraoperative hypotension, at three MAP thresholds (≤75, ≤65, and ≤55 mm Hg), and the following two AKD subtypes: (i) persistent (initial AKI incidence within 7 days of surgery, with continuation between 8 and 90 days post-surgery) and (ii) delayed (renal impairment without AKI within 7 days, with AKI occurring between 8 and 90 days post-surgery).

Sensors (Basel) 2022 Apr 19;22(9). Epub 2022 Apr 19.

Bigdata Engineering Department, SCH Media Labs, Soonchunhyang University, Asan 31538, Korea.

Arterial hypotension is associated with incidence of postoperative complications, such as myocardial infarction or acute kidney injury. Little research has been conducted for the real-time prediction of hypotension, even though many studies have been performed to investigate the factors which affect hypotension events. This forecasting problem is quite challenging compared to diagnosis that detects high-risk patients at current. Read More

A novel small molecule Hsp90 inhibitor, C-316-1, attenuates acute kidney injury by suppressing RIPK1-mediated inflammation and necroptosis.

Int Immunopharmacol 2022 May 16;108:108849. Epub 2022 May 16.

Department of Nephropathy, the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, Anhui 230022, PR China; Center for Scientific Research of Anhui Medical University, Hefei, Anhui 230022, PR China. Electronic address:

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is marked by a fast deterioration of the kidney function that may be caused by a variety of factors. Recently, although our group found that PPBICA alleviated programmed cell death in AKI, poor water solubility limited its bioavailability. In this research, we screened a series of derivatives and found that C-316-1 had the best suppressive effect on preventing necroptosis and inflammation in cisplatin- and ischemia/reperfusion-induced AKI in vitro and in vivo with lower toxicity and better water solubility.
