Ischaemia-reperfusion injury: a major protagonist in kidney transplantation

Ischaemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) is a frequent event in kidney transplantation, particularly when the kidney comes from a deceased donor. The brain death is usually associated with generalized ischaemia due to a hyperactivity of the sympathetic system. In spite of this, most donors have profound hypotension and require administration of vasoconstrictor agents. Warm ischaemia ...

Tonsillectomy and IgA nephritis

IgA nephritis (IgAN) is an autoimmune disease characterized by deposits of IgA in the glomerular mesangium. Clinically, the disease may be punctuated by episodes of macroscopic haematuria often associated with pharingotonsillitis or may be oligosyntomatic with microscopic haematuria and mild proteinuria. The natural course of IgAN may be indolent and benign; however, some 30–50% of ...

The dialysis scenario in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus

Although prognosis of lupus nephritis has improved over time, a substantial amount of lupus patients still reach end-stage renal disease and require dialysis. Treatment of these patients can be challenging, since the disease poses a number of problems that can portend a poor prognosis, such as infections, lupus reactivations, vascular access thrombosis and cardiovascular ...

Onconephrology is an emerging medical subspecialty focused on the numerous interconnections between cancer and kidney diseases. Patient with malignancies commonly experience kidney problems including acute kidney injury, tumor lysis syndrome, fluid and electrolyte disorders and chronic kidney disease, often as a consequence of the anti-cancer treatment.

Herpes viruses and tumours in kidney transplant recipients. The role of immunosuppression

Herpes virus infections are frequent in renal transplant recipients. Some herpes viruses are not only responsible for life-threatening infections and renal graft injury but can also increase the risk of malignancy. Three herpes viruses, namely cytomegalovirus (CMV) or human herpes virus 5, Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) or herpes virus 4 and human herpes virus 8 (HHV8), may play an ...

Glomerular diseases and transplantation: similarities in pathogenetic mechanisms and treatment options

Glomerular diseases and renal transplantation have always been considered as independent fields of nephrology, due to the supposed prevalent role of antibody production and immune complex formation in glomerulonephritis versus a direct reaction of immune cell towards the grafted kidney. However, both conditions share common pathogenetical pathways, and possible new therapeutic ...
