PURPOSE It has been reported that hyperuricemia causes vascular endothelial injury. Most hemodialysis patients present with hyperuricemia and also with vascular injury, resulting in cardiovascular diseases (CVD). However, the association of serum uric acid (sUA) with vascular injury markers in hemodialysis patients remains unclear. This study aimed to investigate this and discuss the mechanism by which uric acid causes vascular injury. METHODS We enrolled 48 Japanese maintenance hemodialysis pat...

Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibody (ANCA)-associated vasculitis injures small vessels and causes severe systemic organ injury. Main target antigens of ANCA are myeloperoxidase and proteinase 3. ANCA strongly associates with the development and progression of the vasculitis. Its manifestations include rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, interstitial pneumonitis, alveolar hemorrhage, purpura, and neurological disorder. Most patients with ANCA-associated vasculitis in Japan are elderly and ha...

: Exercise-induced acute kidney injury (EIAKI) frequently develops in patients with renal hypouricemia (RHUC). However, several cases of RHUC with acute kidney injury (AKI) but without intense exercise have been reported. We encountered a 15-year-old male with RHUC who experienced AKI. He reported no episodes of intense exercise and displayed no other representative risk factors of EIAKI, although a vasopressor had been administered for orthostatic dysregulation before AKI onset. His kidney dysf...

A 47-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of thrombocytopenia and consciousness disturbance. As his laboratory data showed undetectable activity of a disintegrin-like and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motifs 13 (ADAMTS13) and the presence of ADAMTS13 inhibitor, he was diagnosed with acquired thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Asymptomatic primary Sjogren's syndrome (SS) and primary hypothyroidism were incidentally diagnosed on screening. After initial plasma e...

Background Living kidney transplantation comprises the majority of kidney transplantations in Japan. Living kidney donors should be assured of their own health. Therefore, Japanese guidelines define the criterion of kidney function for living donors. Glomerular filtration rates (GFR) ≥ 70 mL/min/1.73 m2 are required for marginal donors. The guidelines require that GFRs of donors be measured by the inulin (In) clearance method (CIn) or the radioisotope method, but these methods can be substituted...

Cell-free and concentrated ascites reinfusion therapy (CART) is frequently used to treat refractory ascites in Japan. However, its efficacy remains unclear. This controlled cohort study verified the serum albumin elevating effect of CART by comparisons with simple paracentesis. Ascites patients receiving CART (N = 88) or paracentesis (N = 108) at our hospital were assessed for the primary outcome of change in serum albumin level within 3 days before and after treatment. A significantly larger vo...
