Performance of the estimated glomerular filtration rate creatinine and cystatin C based equations in Thai patients with chronic glomerulonephritis

Background: Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is considered the indicator of overall kidney function, and therefore, its assessment has become an important clinical tool in the daily care of chronic glomerulonephritis (CGN) patients. Currently, practical guidelines recommend using Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equations to assess GFR in CKD patients...

Background: Hyperuricemia has been associated with increased risk of endothelial dysfunction, cardiovascular, and renal
disease. Allopurinol is a potent xanthine oxidase inhibitor used in hyperuricemic patients. It has been shown to decrease
cardiovascular disease and hypertension. However, studies have reported conflicting evidence on its effects on blood pressure
(BP) and estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients...

Background: Chronic allograft nephropathy (CAN) represents the main cause of renal allograft failure after transplantation. Noninvasive CAN testing is required. Periostin promotes the expression of a mesenchymal phenotype in renal tubules and is a promising urine biomarker for progressive renal injury. Information regarding periostin expression in

A Comparative Study of Efficacy and Safety of the Lyophilized Powder Alpha-Erythropoietin and the Liquid Form Alpha-Erythropoietin for Hemoglobin Maintenance in Patients with Hemodialysis Treatment

Background: Insufficient production of erythropoietin (EPO) is the primary cause of anemia in patients with chronic kidney
disease (CKD). The EPO treatment is an established treatment for renal anemia. The study investigated the therapeutic
outcome between lyophilized powder and liquid form of EPO alpha by intravenous (IV) administration in hemoglobin
maintenance of anemic treatment for CKD patients receiving hemodialysis...

Background. Activation of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) is an important mediator
of diabetic nephropathy. Urinary angiotensinogen, a novel biomarker of the intrarenal RAAS, is
associated with progressive kidney injury. In this study, the authors investigated the determinants
of urinary angiotensinogen and its associations with staging of diabetic nephropathy.
