Cancer in Korean patients with end-stage renal disease: A 7-year follow-up

Background The effectiveness of dialysis on the incidence of cancer in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) remains to be clarified. In this study, we evaluated the incidence rate and type of cancer among patients with ESRD, compared to the general population, through a prospective 7-year follow-up. We also calculated the cumulative incidence rate of cancer associated...

Early dialysis initiation does not improve clinical outcomes in elderly end-stage renal disease patients: A multicenter prospective cohort study

Background The optimal timing for initiating dialysis in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is controversial, especially in the elderly. Methods 665 patients ≥65 years old who began dialysis from August 2008 to February 2015 were prospectively enrolled in the Clinical Research Center for End-Stage Renal Disease cohort study. Participants were divided into 2 groups based on the median...

Posttransplant Hyponatremia Predicts Graft Failure and Mortality in Kidney Transplantation Recipients: A Multicenter Cohort Study in Korea

Although hyponatremia is related to poorer outcomes in several clinical settings, its significance remains unresolved in kidney transplantation. Data on 1,786 patients who received kidney transplantations between January 2000 and December 2011 were analyzed. The patients were divided into two groups according to the corrected sodium values for serum glucose 3 months after their...

Recalibration and Validation of the Charlson Comorbidity Index in Korean Incident Hemodialysis Patients

Background Weights assigned to comorbidities to predict mortality may vary based on the type of index disease and advances in the management of comorbidities. We aimed to develop a modified Charlson comorbidity index (CCI) in incident hemodialysis patients (mCCI-IHD), thereby improving risk stratification for mortality. Methods Data on 24,738 Koreans who received their first...

Renal development / Cystic diseases

Introduction and Aims: Angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7) acts via the G protein-coupled receptor Mas to oppose Ang II/AT1 receptor-mediated effects on cell proliferation and cardiovascular homeostasis. In the present study, we examined the role of the Mas receptor in early UB branching morphogenesis and GDNF/Ret/Wnt11 pathway gene expression. Methods: Paired CD1 mice metanephroi were...
