Rev Med Inst Mex Seguro Soc 2019 Jan 28;56(5):491-504. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social, Hospital de Especialidades “Dr. Bernardo Sepúlveda Gutiérrez”, Unidad de Investigación Médica en Bioquímica. Ciudad de México, México

Scientific evidence has identified that the excessive consumption of products made from high-fructose corn syrup is a trigger for obesity, whose prevalence increased in recent years. Due to the metabolic characteristics of fructose, a rapid gastric emptying is produced, altering signals of hunger-satiety and decreasing the appetite. In addition to the hepatic level during catabolism, triose phosphate is generated and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is reduced, producing uric acid. Read More

Infect Disord Drug Targets 2019 Jan 27. Epub 2019 Jan 27.

Faculty of Medicine, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Mashhad. Iran.

Allopurinol is an FDA-Approved xanthine oxidase inhibitor that uses in the treatment of gout, hyperuricemia and uremic kidney stones in the patients with an increased level of uric acid excretion. Xanthine oxidase acts by converting hypoxanthine and xanthine to uric acid, and therefore its inhibition will result in decreased production of uric acid. The most common side effects of this medication are as follows: maculopapular rashes, hives, itching, headache, dizziness, abnormal hair loss, fever and hypersensitivity reaction. Read More

Rasburicase induced severe hemolysis and methemoglobinemia in a Caucasian patient complicated by acute renal failure and ARDS.

Respir Med Case Rep 2019 23;26:142-145. Epub 2018 Dec 23.

Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Marshall University School of Medicine, Huntington, WV, USA.

Rasburicase is a recombinant urate-oxidase enzyme and is a very important medication for tumor lysis syndrome. Methemoglobinemia and hemolysis are known side effects of rasburicase that result from oxidative stress caused by hydrogen peroxide, a byproduct generated during the breakdown of uric acid to allantoin. Patients with G6PD deficiency have a decreased tolerance to oxidative stress and are therefore at a greater risk of hemolysis and methemoglobinemia with rasburicase. Read More

Blockade of Enhancer of Zeste Homolog 2 alleviates renal injury associated with hyperuricemia.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Nephrology, Shanghai East Hospital, Tongji University School of Medicine, China.

Hyperuricemia has been identified as an independent risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is associated with the progression of kidney diseases. It remains unknown whether enhancer of zeste homolog 2 (EZH2), a histone H3 lysine 27 methyltransferase, can regulate metabolism of serum uric acid and progression of renal injury induced by hyperuricemia. In this study, we demonstrated that blockade of EZH2 with 3-DZNeP, a selective EZH2 inhibitor, or silencing of EZH2 with siRNA inhibited uric acid-induced renal fibroblast activation and phosphorylation of Smad3, epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and extracellular signal-regulated protein kinases 1 and 2 (ERK1/2) in cultured renal fibroblasts.

Blockage of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) suppressed uric acid-induced vascular inflammation, smooth muscle cell de-differentiation, and remodeling.

Biochem Biophys Res Commun 2019 Jan 28;508(2):440-444. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Department of Cardiology, Second Affiliated Hospital of Dalian Medical University, Dalian, 116011, China. Electronic address:

Hyperuricemia contributes to vascular injury and dysfunction, yet the potential mechanisms are not well understood. Uric acid (UA) has been found to stimulate macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) up-regulation in renal tubules from rats subjected to UA-induced nephropathy. Given that MIF is able to induce vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) de-differentiation (from contractile state to a secretory state), we thus hypothesized that UA-induced vascular injury is via up-regulating of MIF in VSMCs, which enhancing vascular inflammation and VSMC transition.
