    1. Serum magnesium concentration is inversely associated with fibroblast growth factor 23 in haemodialysis patients (pages 667–671)

      Akira Iguchi, Yasuo Watanabe, Noriaki Iino, Junichiro James Kazama, Hiroshi Iesato and Ichiei Narita

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12287

      Summary at a Glance

      There is increasing interest in magnesium and FGF23 in nephrology with regards to their impact on cardiovascular health. This study looks at an association between these two serum markers and speculates on a potential relationship which may have implications for future dietary management in dialysis.

    2. Long-term sevelamer treatment lowers serum fibroblast growth factor 23 accompanied with increasing serum Klotho levels in chronic haemodialysis patients (pages 672–678)

      Hsin-Hung Lin, Hung-Hsiang Liou, Ming-Shiou Wu, Ching-Yuang Lin and Chiu-Ching Huang

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12319

      Summary at a Glance

      Understanding fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) and Klotho is of increasing interest to further evaluate phosphate homeostasis in kidney disease. Few studies have addressed potential interventions associated with changes in these regulators of phosphate. This study reports on an association of sevelamer with reducing FGF23 and increasing Klotho levels in dialysis.

    1. Relationship of cystatin-C change and the prevalence of death or dialysis need after acute kidney injury: A meta-analysis (pages 679–684)

      Yunlin Feng, Yue Zhang, Guisen Li and Li Wang

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12312

      Summary at a Glance

      This is a meta-analysis examining the prognostic value of Cystatin-C measured prior to the development of acute kidney injury. Despite the positive finding, a cut-off value still needs to be determined.

    1. Establishing equations to evaluate 24 hour urine protein excretion using routine urinalysis (pages 685–692)

      Yang Yang, Yuansheng Xie, Chao Wang, Guanglei Chen, Deyang Kong, Zhuliang Zhou, Yaping Wang, Ka Qi, Minghui Song and Lu Ma

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12311

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper attempts to express a ‘shortcut’ approach to estimating 24 h urine protein using only dipstick results – specifically dipstick protein and dipstick specific gravity.

    2. Opportunistic in-hospital screening for kidney disease using the Kidney Health Check (pages 693–698)

      Nathan A. Hewitt and Grahame J Elder

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12309

      Summary at a Glance

      Opportunistic inpatient Kidney Health Check (KHC) screening has little impact on hospital costs, but may result in significant health benefits. The KHC should be included in routine discharge documentation.

      Multidisciplinary care improves clinical outcome and reduces medical costs for pre-end-stage renal disease in Taiwan (pages 699–707)

      Yue-Ren Chen, Yu Yang, Shu-Chuan Wang, Wen-Yu Chou, Ping-Fang Chiu, Ching-Yuang Lin, Wen-Chen Tsai, Jer-Ming Chang, Tzen-Wen Chen, Shyang-Hwa Ferng and Chun-Liang Lin

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12316

      Summary at a Glance

      This retrospective study clearly demonstrates that multidisciplinary care by nephrologists in dialysis patients provided better various outcomes and less medical costs. However, the patient mortality was not different.

    4. Spiritual care and kidney disease in NZ: A qualitative study with New Zealand renal specialists (pages 708–713)

      Richard Egan, Rod MacLeod, Ramona Tiatia, Sarah Wood, Jane Mountier and Rob Walker

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12323

      Summary at a Glance

      A timely discussion of an oft neglected area of the care of dialysis patients.

    1. Association of angiotensin type 2 receptor gene polymorphisms with ureteropelvic junction obstruction in Brazilian patients (pages 714–720)

      Debora M Miranda, Augusto Cesar dos Santos Jr, Helena C Sarubi, Luciana Bastos-Rodrigues, Daniela Valadão Rosa, Izabella S Freitas, Luiz Armando De Marco, Eduardo A Oliveira and Ana Cristina Simões e Silva

      Article first published online: 12 OCT 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12308

      Summary at a Glance

      This authors examine the AGTR2 gene polymorphisms in Brazilian children with CAKUT, and find an association of AGTR2 gene polymorphisms with ureteropelvic junction obstruction. Since CAKUT is a prevalent disease in children with CKD, the findings observed in this manuscript will contribute to a better understanding of the pathogenesis of CAKUT.
