Common Clinical Estimates of Kidney Function May Not Accurately Assess Indian Patients

American Physiological Society (APS)

A common metric for monitoring kidney health may not accurately represent that of Indian patients. Research into an improved method for this population is presented today at the American Physiological Society/American Society of Nephrology Conference, Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease.

Does Hypertension Pose a Health Risk to Older Adults Who Wish to Donate a Kidney?

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

• Among older living kidney donors, those with hypertension had higher risk of developing kidney failure through 15 years after donation; however, the absolute risk was small. • Hypertension was not linked with a higher risk of early death among older donors.

Low Dose of Bacterial Toxin Could Be Protective for Men at Risk of Acute Kidney Injury

American Physiological Society (APS)

Researchers found a low dose of endotoxin prior to induction of acute kidney injury improved outcomes for male rats. Their study will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) Conference: Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease.

Blood Metabolite Levels May Help Identify Diabetic Kidney Disease

American Physiological Society (APS)

Metabolomics, the study of small molecules the body produces during metabolism (metabolites) may be a future key to identifying diabetes-related kidney disease. The finding will be presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS)/American Society of Nephrology (ASN) conference, Control of Renal Function in Health and Disease, in Charlottesville, Va.

Many Elderly Patients with Metastatic Renal Cell Carcinoma Benefit from Targeted Therapies

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Many elderly patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (RCC)—who are often underrepresented in clinical trials to treat the kidney cancer—are seeing overall survival benefits from treatment with targeted therapies, according to a new study from Penn Medicine researchers published this month in JAMA Network Open. Analyzing 13 years of data on Medicare patients, the study found that the patients who received targeted therapies were more medically complex than those who received the older, more toxic treatments that were available earlier in the study period, indicating that newer treatments are offering hope to more people.

ASN Foundation for Kidney Research Announces 2019 Grant Recipients

American Society of Nephrology (ASN)

The ASN Foundation for Kidney Research announced the 2019 recipients of research grants to advance new understandings of—and treatments for—kidney diseases. The Foundation will fund 46 leading researchers working to cure kidney diseases. These include 27 new projects, with 19 continuing from 2018. Established in 2012 by the American Society of Nephrology, the Foundation funds research that will help improve the health of approximately 40 million Americans burdened by kidney diseases, the 9th leading cause of death in the United States.
