Newswise: Robotic transplants safe for kidney disease patients with obesity

Robotic transplants safe for kidney disease patients with obesity

University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers report that among patients with obesity, robotic kidney transplants produce survival outcomes comparable to those seen among nonobese patients. The study includes data collected over 10 years from more than 230 robotic-assisted kidney transplants in patients with obesity.

Wearable and Implantable Devices May Transform Care for Patients with Kidney Failure

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

• Wearable and implantable devices may allow for intensive self-care for patients with kidney failure outside of the clinic. • Additional research must focus on technological improvements to bring such ambulatory devices to patients as envisioned by the recent Executive Order on the “Advancing American Kidney Health Initiative”.

Genetics May Determine Who Benefits from Broccoli’s Effects on Kidney Health

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

• Deletion of the gene that codes for an enzyme called GSTM1 increased kidney injury in mice with hypertension and kidney disease, but supplementing the diet with broccoli powder lessened kidney injury in the genetically altered mice. • In humans, high consumption of broccoli and other cruciferous vegetables was linked with a lower risk of kidney failure, primarily in individuals lacking GSTM1.

Researchers Find New Role for Dopamine in Gene Transcription and Cell Proliferation

George Washington University

A joint group of researchers at the George Washington University and the University of Pittsburgh have found that dopamine and the dopamine D2 receptor modulate expression via the Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. This pathway is responsible for control of cell proliferation and organ identity and is implicated in cancer, thus having broad implications for health and development of new therapeutics
