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.

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.

Research Reveals Exotic Quantum States in Double-Layer Graphene

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Researchers from Brown and Columbia Universities have demonstrated previously unknown states of matter that arise in double-layer stacks of graphene, a two-dimensional nanomaterial. These new states, known as the fractional quantum Hall effect, arise from the complex interactions of electrons both within and across graphene layers. “The findings show that stacking 2D materials together in close proximity generates entirely new physics,” says Brown Professor Jia Li.

Study Uses Supercomputers to Advance Dynamic Earthquake Rupture Models

University of California San Diego

Multi-fault earthquakes can span fault systems of tens to hundreds of kilometers, with ruptures propagating from one segment to another. During the last decade, seismologists have observed several cases of this complicated type of earthquake rupture, and are now relying on supercomputers to provide detailed models to better understand the fundamental physical processes that take place during these events, which can have far reaching effects.
