    1. Darbepoetin alfa once monthly corrects anaemia in patients with chronic kidney disease not on dialysis (pages 266–274)

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12214

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper showed that darbepoetin alfa administered monthly corrected anaemia to the same target haemoglobin level as compared with bimonthly administration. These results provide reasonable evidence for monthly use of darbepoetin alfa in CKD clinics.

    1. Vascular calcification in patients undergoing kidney and simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplantation (pages 275–281)

      Katrina Chau, Gabriela Martinez and Grahame J Elder

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12212

      Summary at a Glance

      This group examined the prevalence and epidemiology of vascular calcification in younger patients undergoing kidney only or kidney–pancreas transplantation. They found it to be common in younger patients and resembled the older patients being associated with age, dialysis vintage and cardiovascular pathology. There was no difference in calcification between the type of transplant done and no significant inverse association of the calcification with bone mineral density.

    1. Epidemiology and outcome of community-acquired acute kidney injury (pages 282–287)

      Bnar Talabani, Soha Zouwail, Rhodri D Pyart, Soma Meran, Stephen G Riley and Aled O Phillips

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12221

      Summary at a Glance

      Patients with community-acquired acute kidney injury (AKI) in UK are older than those with hospital-acquired AKI. Community-acquired AKI increases the risk of progressive kidney disease and long-term mortality.

    2. Renal replacement therapy in Brunei Darussalam: Comparing standards with international renal registries (pages 288–295)

      Jackson Tan

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12228

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper gives an excellent overview of renal replacement therapy in Brunei and provides benchmark comparisons with similar data from regional and international renal registries.
