Monitoring of lysozyme thermal denaturation by volumetric measurements and nanoDSF technique in the presence of N-butylurea

The results of thermal studies of denaturation of hen egg white lysozyme (HEWL) in water and an aqueous solution of N-butylurea (BU) are presented. High-precision densimetric measurements were used to characterize and analyze the changes of the specific volume, v, during temperature elevation. The temperature of the midpoint of protein denaturation was also determined by nanoDSF...

Post-transplant Alternative Complement Pathway Activation Influences Kidney Allograft Function

The complement system is one of the crucial pathophysiological mechanisms that directly influence the function of a transplanted kidney. Since the complement pathways’ activation potential can be easily determined via their functional activity measurement, we focused on fluctuation in the cascade activity in the early post-transplant period. The aim of the study was to relate the...

Diversity of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec elements in nosocomial multiresistant Staphylococcus haemolyticus isolates

Staphylococcus haemolyticus is the second, most frequently isolated coagulase-negative staphyloccus (CoNS) from patients with hospital-acquired infections, and it is usually resistant to methicillin and other semisynthetic penicillins. The purpose of this study was to characterize staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) elements and assess the in-vitro activity of...

CD4+CD25+CD127− and CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ Regulatory T Cell Subsets in Mediating Autoimmune Reactivity in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus Patients

The available clinical as well as experimental studies implicate participation of T regulatory (Treg) subsets in the pathogenesis and course of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Introduction of the CD4+CD25+CD127− and CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ regulatory subpopulations analysis into immunological processes assessment and disease activation prognosis in patients with lupus nephritis (LN...

Glucose challenge test (50-g GCT) in detection of glucose metabolism disorders in peritoneal dialysis patients: preliminary study

Background The aim was to evaluate the clinical utility of the oral glucose tolerance screening test (50-g GCT—glucose challenge test) for the detection of glucose metabolism disorders (GMD) in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients with normal fasting glucose levels. Methods The 50-g GCT was performed in 20 prevalent patients without history of diabetes before PD treatment onset, who...

Elderly dialysis patients: analysis of factors affecting long-term survival in 4-year prospective observation

Purpose To assess factors influencing the long-term survival of elderly dialysis patients. Methods The study group consisted of 51 prevalent dialysis patients aged over 70 years (32 F and 19 M, all caucasians), who had been on a chronic hemodialysis (27) or peritoneal dialysis program (24) for at least 2 months; median age was 77 years, median time on dialysis before inclusion...

The increased risk of post-transplant diabetes mellitus in peritoneal dialysis-treated kidney allograft recipients

Background. Post-transplant diabetes mellitus (PTDM) is a common metabolic complication in kidney allograft recipients, significantly contributing to the elevated cardiovascular morbidity after renal transplantation and increased risk of chronic transplant dysfunction. The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the factors influencing PTDM development. Under particular...

Femoral and iliac vein stenoses after prolonged femoral vein catheter insertion

Background/Aims. Catheterization of the femoral vein is a safe and recommended method of temporary access for haemodialysis. In some patients, however, because of the lack of other possibilities, it is necessary to maintain long-term femoral cannulation. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of stenosis after prolonged femoral cannulation. Methods. The 24 patients...

Obesity is not an obstacle for successful autogenous arteriovenous fistula creation in haemodialysis

Background. Obesity, which is often associated with diabetes, is increasingly encountered in the haemodialysed population, and this may produce difficulty in autogenous arteriovenous fistula creation. Prosthetic angioaccess or catheters, when used in place of autogenous fistulas, increase thrombotic and infectious complications in these already challenged patients. Methods. This...

Lupus nephritis

Introduction and Aims: NLRP3/ASC inflammasome signaling translates infectious and sterile dangers into the secretion of mature IL-1β and IL-18 and subsequently into IL-1R/NF-κB-dependent secretion of multiple pro-inflammatory cytokines. We hypothesized that the NLRP3/ASC inflammasome would contribute in a similar manner to autoimmune tissue inflammation, e.g. to immune complex...

The changing epidemiology of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in haemodialysis: European multicentre study

Background. The high prevalence of anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies in HD patients has been known since the early 1990s but its evolution over the last decade is poorly documented. Methods. All chronic HD patients from 15 Belgian units were tested at (re)start of HD and every 18 months for anti-HCV antibodies (ELISA 2 in May 1991 and November 1992, then ELISA 3 until May...

PRIMARY AND SECONDARY GLOMERULONEPHRITIDES 2

Introduction and Aims: The International Society of Nephrology/Renal Pathology Society (ISN/RPS) pathological classification criteria of lupus nephritis are limited to glomerular injury. Although the tubulointerstitium is commonly involved, the importance of such involvement is not well defined. The major objective of this study was to evaluate the association of interstitial...

Diabetes - clinical studies

Introduction and Aims:Cardiovascular disease is common in CKD patients and is the most frequent cause of death. Diabetic CKD patients are at especially high risk for cardiovascular mortality. PWV assesses arterial stiffness and is a predictor of both mortality and cardiovascular outcomes. Some studies suggest that vascular injury is so advanced at the dialysis stage that the...
