GV-Bacteria-Illustrationpost.jpg

Using an approach that combines ultrasound imaging and genetic engineering of bacterial microbes, a team from California Institute of Technology (Caltech), with funding from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), has created a powerful new system to track bacteria dispatched to deliver therapies deep inside the body.

Study Examines Employment Trends Among Patients with Kidney Failure

• Among working-aged adults who started dialysis between 1996 and 2013, employment was low throughout the study period at 23-24%, and 38% of patients who were employed 6 months prior to being diagnosed with kidney failure stopped working by the time they initiated dialysis. After accounting for differences in patients over time, the probability of employment in kidney failure patients increased slightly over time.

Overweight Female Kidney Donors May Be at Risk for Preeclampsia

Female kidney donors who are overweight may be at a greater risk for preeclampsia during pregnancy than those with normal body weight, according to a new study. The increased risk is due to a reduction in a type of kidney function called renal functional reserve (RFR).
