Prothymosin alpha (ProTα) is a nuclear protein expressed in virtually all mammalian tissues. Previous studies have shown that ProTα exhibits protective effects against ischemia-induced cell death in various cell types. Recently, the 6-residue peptide P6Q (NEVDQE), the modified form of the active 6-residue core (51–56) in ProTα, has also been shown to have protective effects against retinal ischemia. However, it remains to be elucidated whether P6Q is effective against acute kidney injury (AKI). ...

Taste disorder is a common problem in patients with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease. Specifically, salty taste disorder is associated with excess salt intake. Many factors affect taste activity; however, data focused on peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are limited. This study aimed to investigate the distribution of the gustatory threshold for salty taste and to clarify its relevant contributing factors in PD patients. In this retrospective cross-sectional study, we enrolled ...

Background and Objective We compared the hemoglobin-maintaining effects between continuous erythropoietin receptor activator (CERA) and darbepoetin-α (DA) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) during the 3 months before dialysis initiation.

: BACKGROUND Endocan is expressed in vascular endothelial cells, and its expression is enhanced following endothelial injury via inflammatory cytokines. Subsequently, endocan is secreted into the circulation. Thus, serum endocan levels are considered a marker of endothelial injury. However, to the best of our knowledge, no data on the serum endocan levels in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients are available. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study included 21 PD patients who underwent peritoneal equilibra...

A 77-year-old man on maintenance dialysis developed hypotension, nausea and abdominal pain one hour after beginning to undergo hemodialysis. Abdominal computed tomography (CT) showed gas shadows in the intrahepatic portal vein and the small intestinal wall, but no signs indicating intestinal necrosis. Three days later, the gas shadows on abdominal CT disappeared by conservative therapy. In cases with both pneumatosis cystoides intestinalis and hepatic portal venous gas, intestinal necrosis shoul...
