Resolvin D-1 Limits Kidney Damage After Heart Attacks

RS14572_GaneshHalade-3RT-scrlandscape.jpg

Lingering inflammation after heart attack can lead heart failure. It can also claim another victim — the kidneys. New research shows that a bioactive compound called resolvin D-1, injected as a therapeutic dose, is able to limit this collateral damage in the kidneys, as tested in an animal model.

Research Compares Mouse and Human Kidney Development

• Three new research articles compare human and mouse kidney development to identify shared and novel features. • The studies provide new detailed molecular data to guide future research. • The studies revealed deep conservation of certain processes, but also significant differences in gene expression during kidney development, as well as in the timing, scale, organization, and molecular profile of key cell types and cell structures.

Mayo Clinic的研究发现,肾结石的患病率在上升

肾结石(Kidney stones)是十分痛苦的,而其治疗也往往需要多个令病人很不舒服的治疗程序。 越来越多的证据表明,肾结石的发病率在稳步上升,特别是在女性中。 使用罗切斯特流行病学项目(Rochester Epidemiology Project)的数据,Mayo Clinic的研究人员调查了结石患者的增加情况,以确定这是一个新的趋势或者仅仅是由于肾结石检测手段改善而造成的患者增加。 他们的发现发表在Mayo Clinic Proceedings上。

Kidney Stones on the Rise, Mayo Clinic Study Finds

Kidney stones are a painful health condition, often requiring multiple procedures at great discomfort to the patient. Growing evidence suggests that the incidence of kidney stones is increasing steadily, especially in women. Using data from the Rochester Epidemiology Project, Mayo Clinic researchers investigated the rise in stone formers to determine if this is a new trend, or simply an improvement in the way kidney stones are detected. Their findings appear in the March issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Artificial Kidney Development Advances, Thanks to Collaboration by NIBIB Quantum Grantees

Artificialimplantablekidneyfigure3.jpg

Creating an artificial implantable kidney would be an epic advance in medicine and could address a chronic shortage of donor kidneys needed for transplant. Researchers who have been at this quest for the past 15 years face the challenge of how to keep the blood flowing smoothly through the artificial device without clotting. They are combining expertise in artificial kidney development and in computer simulation of blood flow to surmount the problem.
