      Phosphate in early chronic kidney disease: Associations with clinical outcomes and a target to reduce cardiovascular risk (pages 433–444)

      NIGEL D TOUSSAINT, EUGENIE PEDAGOGOS, SVEN-JEAN TAN, SUNIL V BADVE, CARMEL M HAWLEY, VLADO PERKOVIC and GRAHAME J ELDER

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01618.x

      This review highlights the association between mineral and bone disorders in chronic kidney disease and the extensive burden of cardiovascular disease. A systematic review on the current evidence linking phosphate metabolism and cardiovascular disease, left ventricular hypertrophy, vascular calcification and arterial compliance is presented.

    1. Incidence, risk factors and prognosis of acute kidney injury after transcatheter aortic valve implantation (pages 445–451)

      WAI Y KONG, GERALD YONG and ASHLEY IRISH

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01593.x

      The paper described the incidence and predictors of acute kidney injury after transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Acute kidney injury has previously been reported to be associated with mortality in several manuscripts.

    1. Association between vitamin C deficiency and dialysis modalities (pages 452–457)

      KUNYING ZHANG, JIE DONG, XUYANG CHENG, WENYING BAI, WEIYA GUO, LEIYUN WU and LI ZUO

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01595.x

      The authors designed a cross-sectional study to investigate plasma vitamin C level in patients with HD and PD (total 382 patients). The results showed that 35.9% of patients had severe vitamin C deficiency (<2 µg/mL). Vitamin C deficiency was associated with HD. Thus, they concluded that vitamin C deficiency was common in dialysis patients, especially in those treated with HD.

    2. Effect of gastric acid suppression with pantoprazole on the efficacy of calcium carbonate as a phosphate binder in haemodialysis patients (pages 458–465)

      MATTHEW J CERVELLI, AHMED SHAMAN, ANTHONY MEADE, ROBERT CARROLL and STEPHEN P MCDONALD

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01604.x

      The authors explored whether PPI therapy reduces the phosphate-binding capacity of CaCO3 in haemodialysis patients. In a cross-sectional study of 67 subjects, no difference in serum phosphate was observed between subjects on PPI and subjects not on PPI treatment. This was followed by an interventional, crossover, double-blind randomized and placebo-controlled study in 26 subjects in which there was an increase in serum phosphate and intact parathyroid hormone and decrease in serum calcium during a 6-week trial period with pantoprazole on board. The study explains why some patients fail to control hyperphosphataemia while on gastric acid suppression therapy.

    3. Relationship between serum levels of tumour necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand and the survival of Chinese peritoneal dialysis patients (pages 466–471)

      PETER YAM-KAU POON, CHEUK-CHUN SZETO, BONNIE CHING-HA KWAN, KAI-MING CHOW, CHI-BON LEUNG and PHILIP KAM-TAO LI

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01605.x

      While this is a single centre study, the size of the study population is not insignificant. The hypothesis is novel and provides room for another alternative biomarker for measuring outcomes in peritoneal dialysis, where current markers are less than satisfactory.

    4. Effect of multidisciplinary pre-dialysis education in advanced chronic kidney disease: Propensity score matched cohort analysis (pages 472–479)

      EUN JIN CHO, HAYNE CHO PARK, HYUN BAE YOON, KYUNG DON JU, HWAJUNG KIM, YUN KYU OH, JAESEOK YANG, YOUNG-HWAN HWANG, CURIE AHN and KOOK-HWAN OH

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01598.x

      Data from Cho et al., re-affirms the importance of multi-disciplinary pre-dialysis education. This is a retrospective analysis, using propensity score matching, showing that patients receiving multi-disciplinary pre-dialysis education (compared with those that did not), commenced dialysis at a higher GFR and had reduced need for urgent unplanned dialysis.

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01592.x

      Meta-analysis of 12 studies evaluating association of ACE I/D gene polymorphism and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in patients with diabetic nephropathy. The investigators observed a significant association between ESRD susceptibility and D allele or DD homogyzygous state in patients with diabetic nephropathy due to diabetes mellitus type 2.

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01606.x

      Cheng and colleagues reported the modified methods for measurement of the glomerular diameter and also reported the normal value range of glomerular diameter in Chinese adults.

    1. Bone marrow stem cells-derived microvesicles protect against renal injury in the mouse remnant kidney model (pages 493–500)

      JUAN HE, YAN WANG, SHU SUN, MEINING YU, CUIYU WANG, XIAOHUA PEI, BEI ZHU, JIANQING WU and WEIHONG ZHAO

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01589.x

      This manuscript describes the potential renoprotective effect of microvesicles (MV) derived from mouse mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in a 5/6 nephrectomy (Nx) model. MSC treatment is known to attenuate renal fibrosis by modulating the inflammatory responses and hence this study suggests a potential mechanism whereby MSC exert its beneficial effect in this disease model.

    1. Blood-borne viruses in the haemodialysis-dependent population attending Top End Northern Territory facilities 2000–2009 (pages 501–507)

      JANE DAVIES, ZULFIKAR JABBAR, FIZZA GAGAN and ROBERT W BAIRD

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01603.x

      This paper is an audit of viral infectious serology in a predominantly Indigenous dialysis service in the Northern Territory. Its value relates to documentation of previous exposure, HBcAb, and current HBsAg positivity in a significant proportion of this population and, on the other hand, low seroconversion rates for haemodialysis patients positive for HBsAg managed with current non-isolation unit strategies.

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01590.x

      This manuscript describes important manpower and resource issues facing the supply of dietitians services for transplant units, and recommends increasing these resources, particularly in smaller regional services where patients may return for follow-up transplant care.

    2. Cross sectional survey on the concerns and anxiety of patients waiting for organ transplants (pages 514–518)

      PHILIP KAM-TAO LI, KWOK HONG CHU, KAI MING CHOW, MIU FONG LAU, CHI BON LEUNG, BONNIE CHING HA KWAN, YUEN FAN TONG, CHEUK CHUN SZETO and MAGGIE MIU MAN NG

      Article first published online: 24 JUN 2012 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2012.01615.x

      This study examined psychosocial concerns and the impact of transplant waiting time. Longer waiting time was associated with lower self-estimated chance of receiving a transplant and many perceived the psychosocial support while waiting to be inadequate.
