      Role of interstitial inflammation in the pathogenesis of polycystic kidney disease (pages 317–330)

      Michelle HT Ta, David CH Harris and Gopala K Rangan

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12045

      Summary at a Glance

      The authors provide a comprehensive overview of our current understanding of the role of inflammation in the pathogenesis of polycystic kidney disease. In particular, the involvement of monocytes/macrophages and other infiltrating cells such as dendritic cells, T cells and other leukocytes are highlighted.

      Atrial fibrillation and warfarin use in haemodialysis patients: An individualized holistic approach is important in stroke prevention (pages 331–339)

      Zaw Thet and Eswari Vilayur

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12057

      Summary at a Glance

      Atrial fibrillation is more common in patients on haemodialysis yet the therapeutic value of warfarin remains inconclusive. An individualized approach taking into consideration of potential risk versus benefit should always be adopted when anti-coagulative therapy is examined.

    1. Automated peritoneal dialysis in Hong Kong: There are two distinct groups of patients (pages 356–364)

      Bonnie Ching-Ha Kwan, Kai-Ming Chow, Terry King-Wing Ma, Vincent Yu, Man-Ching Law, Chi-Bon Leung, Philip Kam-Tao Li and Cheuk-Chun Szeto

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12049

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper documents that in an observational prospective analysis of 270 incident Hong Kong PD patients matching one APD with two CAPD patients, those with fewer comorbidites as measured by a Charlson score less than 6, had better patient survival on APD than CAPD, but there was no difference in peritonitis-free survival. In those with more comorbidites, there was no difference in either patient or peritonitis-free survival between the APD and CAPD groups.

    1. Renal transplantation in Nepal: Beginning of a new era! (pages 369–375)

      Dibya S Shah, Shailendra Shrestha and Mukunda P Kafle

      Shah et al. describe the first 70 live donor kidney transplants performed in Nepal, since the development of a national, government sanctioned, transplant service. This is a truly remarkable achievement.

    2. Value of myocardial perfusion imaging in renal transplant evaluation (pages 376–381)

      Chong Ghee Chew, Steve Unger and Sepehr Shakib

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12050

      Summary at a Glance

    3. Pneumocystis jirovecii colonization among renal transplant recipients (pages 382–387)

      Carlos Fritzsche, Diana Riebold, Andreas Fuehrer, Andrea Mitzner, Sebastian Klammt, Brigitte Mueller-Hilke and Emil C Reisinger

      Article first published online: 19 APR 2013 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12054

      Summary at a Glance

      Availability of highly sensitive diagnostic molecular techniques for DNA amplification has allowed detection of minute burdens of Pneumocystis organisms in human hosts. This study addressed the prevalence of Pneumocystis jirovecii pulmonary colonization in a cohort of 70 renal transplant recipients. Additional studies to investigate whether Pneumocystis colonization in transplant recipients are of clinical significance are warranted.
