Association of hypoalbuminemia with severe anemia in patients with diabetic nephrosclerosis.
The factors that were significantly associated with the cluster group that showed severe anemia were sex (p = 0.0162), hypoalbuminemia (p < 0.0001), high BUN concentrations (p = 0.0020), low eGFR (p = 0.0104), and Kimmelstiel-Wilson nodules (p = 0.0022). In addition, hypoalbuminemia (p = 0.0277), hi...
Risk factors for mortality in stable peritoneal dialysis patients.
We reviewed the medical records and identified all adult patients who received PD between April 2001 and March 2009 in our institution. The total cohort was 550 patients. Among these patients, 383 patients were enrolled as stable PD patients. The cumulative survival of the stable PD...

Clinical research promotes development of nephrology in China: an analysis of 20 years of scientific publications.
China has made a remarkable progress in the field of nephrology. Clinical researches have promoted the development of nephrology. The quality of research papers in China needs further improvement....
Sustained low-efficiency daily diafiltration with hemoperfusion as a therapy for severe star fruit intoxication: a report of two cases.
We report two cases of star fruit intoxication with stage V CKD (one case is predialysis) presenting with coma and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. The two patients were treated with sustained low-efficiency daily diafiltration (SLEDD-f) and charcoal hemoperfusion. Status epilepticus was controlle...
Lupus nephritis in Iranian children: a review of 60 patients.
Of the patients, 27% were below 10 years of age. Class IV nephritis was the most frequent histological finding comprising 42 (70%) of our population. Overall, five patients died and nine developed end-stage renal failure. Patient survival and kidney function survival for the whole population were 98...
An Unusual Cause of Renomegaly and Renal Insufficiency: A Case Report of Renal Involvement in Common Variable Immunodeficiency disease.
We describe a 21-year-old girl who presented with recurrent infections, hepatosplenomegaly, renomegaly, and renal insufficiency. Renal biopsy revealed a remarkable diffused interstitial infiltration and severe degenerative tubular lesions. Interstitial infiltration consisted mainly of CD8(+) T cells...
PAX2 re-expression in renal tubular epithelial cells and correlation with renal interstitial fibrosis of rats with obstructive nephropathy.
The new major findings of this study include the following: (1) Hematoxylin and Eosin (HE) and Masson staining revealed obvious renal interstitial fibrosis in UUO group; (2) increased PAX2 expression was found in renal tubular epithelial cells in UUO group by immunohistochemistry, but not in sham gr...
Contrast-induced nephropathy: current practices among cardiologists.
There is significant diversity in the measures taken by cardiologists to prevent CIN. More studies and clearer guidelines are needed to unify the practices....
