Impact of Transient and Persistent Acute Kidney Injury on Chronic Kidney Disease Progression and Mortality after Gastric Surgery for Gastric Cancer

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is common after gastric surgery for gastric cancer and associated with adverse outcomes. However, the impact of transient or persistent AKI on clinical outcomes after gastric surgery for gastric cancer has not been described. We performed a retrospective study of 4,886 patients with normal renal function who underwent partial or total gastrectomy for...

Peroxiredoxin 5 Protects TGF-β Induced Fibrosis by Inhibiting Stat3 Activation in Rat Kidney Interstitial Fibroblast Cells

Renal fibrosis is a common final pathway of end-stage kidney disease which is induced by aberrant accumulation of myofibroblasts. This process is triggered by reactive oxygen species (ROS) and proinflammatory cytokines generated by various source of injured kidney cells. Peroxiredoxin 5 (Prdx5) is a thiol-dependent peroxidase that reduces oxidative stress by catalyzing...

Nicotine-Induced Apoptosis in Human Renal Proximal Tubular Epithelial Cells

Background Nicotine is, to a large extent, responsible for smoking-mediated renal dysfunction. This study investigated nicotine’s effects on renal tubular epithelial cell apoptosis in vitro and it explored the mechanisms underlying its effects. Methods Human proximal tubular epithelial (HK-2) cells were treated with nicotine. Cell viability was examined by using the WST-1 assay...

Angiotensin-(1-7) Attenuates Kidney Injury Due to Obstructive Nephropathy in Rats

Background Angiotensin-(1–7) [Ang-(1–7)] counteracts many actions of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Despite its renoprotective effects, extensive controversy exists regarding the role of Ang-(1–7) in obstructive nephropathy, which is characterized by renal tubulointerstitial fibrosis and apoptosis. Methods To examine the effects of Ang-(1–7) in unilateral ureteral...

Farnesoid X Receptor Ligand Prevents Cisplatin-Induced Kidney Injury by Enhancing Small Heterodimer Partner

The farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is mainly expressed in liver, intestine and kidney. We investigated whether 6-ethyl chenodeoxycholic acid (6ECDCA), a semisynthetic derivative of chenodeoxycholic aicd (CDCA, an FXR ligand), protects against kidney injury and modulates small heterodimer partner (SHP) in cisplatin-induced kidney injury. Cisplatin inhibited SHP protein expression in...

Incidence, Predictive Factors, and Clinical Outcomes of Acute Kidney Injury after Gastric Surgery for Gastric Cancer

Background Postoperative acute kidney injury (AKI), a serious surgical complication, is common after cardiac surgery; however, reports on AKI after noncardiac surgery are limited. We sought to determine the incidence and predictive factors of AKI after gastric surgery for gastric cancer and its effects on the clinical outcomes. Methods We conducted a retrospective study of 4718...

Clinical Impact of Hospital-Acquired Anemia in Association with Acute Kidney Injury and Chronic Kidney Disease in Patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction

BackgroundHospital-acquired anemia (HAA) is common in patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and is an independent indicator of long-term mortality in these patients. However, limited information exists regarding the development and prognostic impact of HAA associated with acute kidney injury (AKI) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in AMI patients. Methods and ResultsWe...

Rosiglitazone prevents the progression of renal injury in DOCA-salt hypertensive rats

This study was designed to evaluate the possible renoprotective effects of rosiglitazone (RGT), a peroxisome proliferator-activated subtype γ receptor agonist, in deoxycorticosterone acetate (DOCA)-salt hypertension and its role in endogenous endothelin-1 (ET-1) production and renal fibrosis associated with inflammation. Rats were implanted with DOCA strips (200 mg kg−1) at 1...

Paricalcitol Attenuates 4-Hydroxy-2-Hexenal-Induced Inflammation and Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition in Human Renal Proximal Tubular Epithelial Cells

4-Hydroxy-2-hexenal (HHE), the aldehyde product of lipid peroxidation, may be responsible for the pathogenesis of progressive renal disease. Recently, paricalcitol (19-nor-1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D2) was shown to be renoprotective through its anti-inflammatory and antifibrotic effects in various experimental nephropathy models. In this study, we investigated the effects of...

4-Hydroxy-2-hexenal-induced apoptosis in human renal proximal tubular epithelial cells

Background. The aldehyde products of lipid peroxidation such as 4-hydroxy-2-hexenal (HHE) might be responsible for the pathogenesis of kidney injury. The present study was aimed to investigate the effects of HHE on renal tubular epithelial cells and its signaling mechanisms. Methods. Human proximal tubular epithelial (HK-2) cells were treated with 10 μM of HHE. Cell viability was...
