Blood Cells Mol Dis 2022 May 7;96:102666. Epub 2022 May 7.

Department of Medical Laboratory Science and Technology, Harbin Medical University-Daqing, Daqing, China. Electronic address:

The link between hyperuricemia (HUA) and the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) has been well established. However, the mechanisms of thrombus generation and the effect of HUA on procoagulant activity (PCA) of erythrocytes remain unclear no matter in uremia or hyperuricemia. Here, phosphatidylserine (PS) exposure, microparticles (MPs) release, cytosolic Ca, TMEM16F expression, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and lipid peroxidation of erythrocyte were detected by flow cytometer.

Roxadustat Attenuates the Disruption of Epithelial Tight Junction in Caco2 Cells and a Rat Model of CKD Through MicroRNA-223.

Front Med (Lausanne) 2022 13;9:850966. Epub 2022 Apr 13.

Dialysis Department of Nephrology Hospital, The First Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, Xi'an, China.

Introduction: Increasing evidence supports the idea that the disruption of epithelial tight junction proteins (TJPs) caused by accumulation of uremia toxins, such as homocysteine (Hcy), is one of the most important mechanisms underlying the damage of intestinal barrier function (IBF) in chronic kidney disease (CKD). Since the decrease of hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) is reported to be involved in Hcy-induced cell injury, and the upregulation of microRNA-223 (miR-223) plays a vital protective role in the impairment of IBF in the experimental colitis, we investigated the effect of HIF-1α stabilizer roxadustat on the disruption of TJPs induced by Hcy and CKD and the underlying mechanism.

Methods: Chronic kidney disease was induced in rats 5/6 nephrectomy. Read More

Permissive azotemia during acute kidney injury enables more rapid renal recovery and less renal fibrosis: a hypothesis and clinical development plan.

Lakhmir S Chawla

Crit Care 2022 04 28;26(1):116. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Medicine, Veterans Affairs Medical Center, 3550 La Jolla Village Drive, San Diego, CA, USA.

Preclinical models of acute kidney injury (AKI) consistently demonstrate that a uremic milieu enhances renal recovery and decreases kidney fibrosis. Similarly, significant decreases in monocyte/macrophage infiltration, complement levels, and other markers of inflammation in the injured kidney are observed across multiple studies and species. In essence, decreased renal clearance has the surprising and counterintuitive effect of being an effective treatment for AKI. Read More

Uremic Toxins and Cardiovascular Risk in Chronic Kidney Disease: What Have We Learned Recently beyond the Past Findings?

Toxins (Basel) 2022 Apr 14;14(4). Epub 2022 Apr 14.

Nephrology Department, Ambroise Paré University Hospital, APHP, F-92100 Paris, France.

Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have an elevated prevalence of atheromatous (ATH) and/or non-atheromatous (non-ATH) cardiovascular disease (CVD) due to an array of CKD-related risk factors, such as uremic toxins (UTs). Indeed, UTs have a major role in the emergence of a spectrum of CVDs, which constitute the leading cause of death in patients with end-stage renal disease. The European Uremic Toxin Work Group has identified over 100 UTs, more than 25 of which are dietary or gut-derived. Read More

The Evolving View of Uremic Toxicity.

Toxins (Basel) 2022 Apr 12;14(4). Epub 2022 Apr 12.

Nephrology Division, NYU Langone Medical Center, New York, NY 10016, USA.

Indoxyl sulfate, closely related to indigo, a dye valued for it binding to cloth, has been recognized as a protein-bound solute bound to albumin, present in increased concentration in the serum of patients with impaired glomerular filtration (13). The early studies of Niwa identified indoxyl sulfate as a toxin capable of accelerating the rate of renal damage in subtotal nephrectomized rats (18). Over the past decade other protein-bound solutes have been identified in the plasma of patients with impaired glomerular filtration. Read More

Probl Sotsialnoi Gig Zdravookhranenniiai Istor Med 2022 Mar;30(2):207-210

N. A. Semashko National Research Institute of Public Health, 105064, Moscow, Russia.

Lately, in case of a number of life-threatening and chronic progressive rare (orphan) diseases, resulting in decreasing of life expectancy of citizens or their disability, the powers to support patients with medications were transferred from regional to federal level. Among these diseases are hemolytic uremic syndrome, mucopolysaccharidose type I, II, VI, juvenile arthritis with systemic onset, unspecified aplastic anemia, hereditary deficiency of factors II (fibrinogen), VII (labile), X (Stuart-Prauer). The article considers data concerning hemolytic uremic syndrome, mucopolysaccharidosis type I, II, VI, juvenile arthritis with systemic onset - the diseases for which medication support provision was transferred to Federal level in the first place and for which at the time of preparation of the article there were sufficient data to analyze.

Humoral antibody response to the first dose of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine in Asian patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Hemodial Int 2022 Apr 11. Epub 2022 Apr 11.

Division of Nephrology, Department of Internal Medicine, Far Eastern Memorial Hospital, New Taipei City, Taiwan.

Background And Objectives: The immunogenicity of vaccines is known to be attenuated in patients with end-stage kidney disease due to uremia. Patients on dialysis were excluded from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine trials; thus, the effectiveness of vaccines for this population is unclear. The aim of this study was to explore whether Asian dialysis patients can effectively produce an immune response after being vaccinated with the first dose of the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine. Read More
