The Effect of Continuous Blood Purification on the Prognosis of Cardiorenal Syndrome Patients.
Cell Biochem. Biophys.
PUBLISHED: 10-12-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
To discuss the effect of continuous blood purification (CBP) on the prognosis of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) patients. Twenty-seven patients were selected for this study, who had previously been treated at the Blood Purification Center of the General Hospital of Jinan Military Region from May 2007 to October 2010. All patients suffered from chronic heart failure and acute kidney injury. Using a non-invasive hemodynamics monitoring system, we observed the dynamic changes in their cardiac output (CO), systemic vascular resistance (SVR), thoracic fluid capacity (TFC), central venous pressure (CVP), urinary volume, and Acute Physiology and Chronic Health Evaluation II system (APACHEII) score. Individual measurements were obtained at 24 h, 48 h, 72 h, 96 h, and 120 h after CBP treatment. At the same time, levels of serum creatinine (Scr), cysteine proteinase inhibitor Cystatin C (CysC), high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), and serum sodium were observed. The fatality rate at 28 days was also recorded. After 24 h of CBP treatment, acidosis, CO, and disturbances in water and electrolyte levels were all improved. As well, concentrations of Scr and CysC were significantly decreased, and the levels of SVR, TFC, and CVP were also decreased. After 72 h of CBP treatment, hs-CRP levels and APACHE II scores were significantly lower (P < 0.01). From 72 to 120 h of CBP treatment, oliguria was resolved in 24 patients, with improved sensitivity to diuretics. The fatality rate at 28 days was 11.12 %. CBP treatment could improve myocardial function, shorten the oliguria period, decrease the fatality rate, and improve the prognosis of CRS patients.

Comparison of pregabalin with ondansetron in treatment of uraemic pruritus in dialysis patients: a prospective, randomized, double-blind study.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Pruritus is common among patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing dialysis, and the pathogenesis can be explained by several mechanisms. However, there is no definite evidence supporting them, which limits the relative efficacy of any individual treatment option. In this paper, we aimed to compare pregabalin with ondansetron in treatment of uraemic pruritus (UP) in dialysis patients.

Allotransplanting donor kidneys after resection of a small renal cancer or contralateral healthy kidneys from cadaveric donors with unilateral renal cancer: a systematic review.
Clin Transplant

Hide Abstract
This systematic review summarizes evidence on allotransplantation of donor kidneys after resection of a small renal cancer or contralateral healthy kidneys from cadaveric donors with unilateral renal cancer. Eligible studies were identified by screening four bibliographic databases, contacting key authors, and analyzing the bibliographies of included studies. Two reviewers independently assessed the reports for inclusion and extracted data, which were summarized as a narrative review. In the 20 case report or case series studies included in the analysis, there were 97 documented cases of donor kidney transplantation after resection of small renal cancer without pathologically confirmed recurrence, whereas 22 cases used contralateral healthy kidneys from cadaveric donors with unilateral renal cancer with one case of cancer recurrence. These results suggest that the use of donor kidneys after resection of small renal cancer is associated with a relatively low cancer recurrence rate.

Benign and Malignant Renal Cells Are Differentially Inhibited during Prolonged Organ Preservation.
PLoS ONE
PUBLISHED: 01-01-2013
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The worry of potential residual renal cancer cells in donor kidney after resection of small renal cancer impedes the extensive use of such controversial donor source. To explore the impacts of organ preservation process on the survival of renal cancer cells, we detected cell proliferation and viability of benign and malignant renal cell lines and clinical renal samples after treated with simulated organ preservation process. It was found that the viability and proliferation of malignant renal cells are inhibited much more than that of benign renal cells during prolonged organ preservation. The inhibition of proliferation in benign renal cells is fully reversible, while in malignant renal cancer cells is not fully reversible after a certain time. So potential residual renal cancer cells could be partly inhibited and eliminated by organ preservation process.

Effect of IFN-? and IL-4 levels on the expression of Fas and Bcl-2 in peripheral blood lymphocytes in hemodialysis patients.

Hide Abstract
To study the correlation between the levels of IFN-? and IL-4 and the expression of Fas and Bcl-2 in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in hemodialysis patients, the indirect immune fluorescein labeling method of flow cytometry and solid sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay were performed for detecting the expression of Fas and Bcl-2 in PBL and the levels of IFN-? and IL-4 in the serum of 30 hemodialysis patients, respectively. It was found that the expression of Fas in PBL and the level of IL-4 in the serum of hemodialysis patients were significantly higher (P < 0.01), whereas Bcl-2 in PBL and IFN-? in the serum were significantly lower (P < 0.01) than those of the normal controls. According to statistical analysis, the expression of Fas in PBL had a negative correlation with the level of IFN-?, but a positive correlation with IL-4 in the serum of hemodialysis patients. Contrarily, the expression of Bcl-2 had a positive correlation with IFN-?, but a negative correlation with IL-4 in the serum of hemodialysis patients. These results suggest that hemodialysis patients have a suppressed secretion of Th1-associated cytokine IFN-?, but an increased secretion of Th2-associated cytokines IL-4, and these two aspects may play an important role in the abnormal apoptosis of PBL and its accompanying immune deficiency.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
