      The importance of klotho in phosphate metabolism and kidney disease (pages 439–449)

      Sven-Jean Tan, Edward R Smith, Tim D Hewitson, Stephen G Holt and Nigel D Toussaint

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12268

      Summary at a Glance

      This manuscript summarizes our current understanding of klotho and the role it may play in chronic kidney disease, identifying potential therapeutic implications and highlighting the need for ongoing research in this area.

      Diabetic kidney disease in Australia: Current burden and future projections (pages 450–458)

      Sarah White and Steve Chadban

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12281

      Summary at a Glance

      This important review eloquently describes the current and future projected burden of diabetic kidney disease. There is positive news in that early detection of diabetic kidney disease and optimal management are proving successful strategies to slow the rate of disease progression.

    1. The cost-effectiveness of contemporary home haemodialysis modalities compared with facility haemodialysis: A systematic review of full economic evaluations (pages 459–470)

      Rachael Walker, Mark R Marshall, Rachael L Morton, Philip McFarlane and Kirsten Howard

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12269

      Summary at a Glance

      This systematic review has examined cost utility data for home-based haemodialysis between 2000–2014 and identifies 6 studies that provide evidence in support of benefit for home-based therapies. Higher initial costs are off-set by better patient outcomes and reduced facility costs for home therapies. This information provides support for expanding home haemodialysis in a resource capped health system.

    1. Blockade of interleukin-8 receptor signalling inhibits cyst development in vitro, via suppression of cell proliferation in autosomal polycystic kidney disease (pages 471–478)

      Eun Ji Lee, Seon Ah Song, Hyo Won Mun, Kyung Hyun Yoo, Soo Young Choi, Eun Young Park and Jong Hoon Park

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12261

      Summary at a Glance

      Interstitial inflammation and chemokines are important contributors to the progression of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). In this study the authors utilize in vitro models of ADPKD and provide evidence that interleukin-8 may be a novel mediator of cyst growth.

    2. Expression of Niban in renal interstitial fibrosis (pages 479–489)

      Jishi Liu, Jiao Qin, Wenjuan Mei, Hao Zhang, Qiongjing Yuan, Zhangzhe Peng, Renna Luo, Xiangning Yuan, Ling Huang and Lijian Tao

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12266

      Summary at a Glance

      The present study found that the poorly understood protein Niban was downregulated at the protein level in UUO model and patients of obstructive nephropathy. In vitro work linked Niban to an anti-apoptotic function.

    3. Ginseng treatment attenuates autophagic cell death in chronic cyclosporine nephropathy (pages 490–499)

      Sun Woo Lim, Kyoung Chan Doh, Long Jin, Jian Jin, Shang Guo Piao, Seong Beom Heo, Byung Ha Chung and Chul Woo Yang

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12273

      Summary at a Glance

      Chronic cyclosporin-induced nephropathy may be mediated by excessive autophagy, a process attenuated by ginseng and therefore may have a protective role in this disease process.

    4. Probiotic Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis Bi-07 alleviates bacterial translocation and ameliorates microinflammation in experimental uraemia (pages 500–506)

      Meng Wei, Zhigang Wang, Hua Liu, Hongli Jiang, Meng Wang, Shanshan Liang, Kehui Shi and Jie Feng

      Article first published online: 25 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12272

      Summary at a Glance

      This manuscript describes the use of probiotic Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis Bi-07 that can alleviate bacterial translocation and ameliorates microinflammation in experimental uraemia. An interesting study to publish.

      Summary at a Glance

      A review of renal replacement therapy for acute kidney injury in Malaysian intensive care units. CRRT using CVVH was the first-choice modality. Initiation of RRT was undertaken by the intensivists.
