      Control of hypertension and survival in haemodialysis patients (pages 49–54)

      Kunitoshi Iseki

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12358

      Summary at a Glance

      This review highlights issues specific for the management of haemodialysis patients in Japan with specific regard to control of blood pressure and fluid status. Many of these factors are common to all populations but this review focuses more specifically on this more homogeneous ethic population.

    1. Physical activity and risk of end-stage kidney disease in the Singapore Chinese Health Study (pages 61–67)

      Tazeen Hasan Jafar, Aizhen Jin, Woon-Puay Koh, Jian-Min Yuan and Khuan Yew Chow

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12355

      Summary at a Glance

      Physical inactivity is recognized as one of the leading risk factors of deaths and disability predominantly from cardiovascular disease. This study extends this to examine the relationship between physical exercise and the development of ESKD.

    2. Macrophage migration inhibitory factor –173G/C gene polymorphism increases the risk of renal disease: A meta-analysis (pages 68–76)

      Xiang Tong, Jie He, Sitong Liu, Shifeng Peng, Zhipeng Yan, Yonggang Zhang and Hong Fan

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12353

      Summary at a Glance

      In this manuscript the authors perform a meta-analysis and find evidence to suggest that macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) –173G/C (rs755622) polymorphism is linked to increased risk of renal disease, especially in children.

    3. Valsartan combined with clopidogrel and/or leflunomide for the treatment of progressive immunoglobulin A nephropathy (pages 77–84)

      Genyang Cheng, Dongwei Liu, Peter Margetts, Limin Liu, Zhanzheng Zhao, Zhangsuo Liu, Lin Tang, Yudong Fang, Haijian Li, Yuanyuan Guo, Fengmei Chen and Fengxun Liu

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12359

      Summary at a Glance

      In this randomized clinical trial, patients with IgA nephropathy at moderate risk of progression showed a greater degree of proteinuria reduction and GFR preservation with leflunimide and clopidogrel.

    1. Effect of ultra-low dose and standard heparin locks on early tunnelled dialysis catheter outcomes in low-risk dialysis patients (pages 85–90)

      Claude J Renaud, Eng Kuang Lim, Samuel J Tho and Lee Ying Yeoh

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12354

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper is clinically useful. Other researchers would perform more precise observation and promote clinical research.

    2. Acute effects of haemodialysis on central venous and arterial pressure characteristics (pages 91–95)

      Christoph Thalhammer, Stephan Segerer, Marlene Augustoni, Vincenzo Jacomella, Robert K. Clemens, Rudolf P. Wüthrich, Beatrice R. Amann-Vesti and Marc Husmann

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12356

      Summary at a Glance

      The authors have reported the changes in central venous and arterial pressures (CVP and CAP) during haemodialysis by non-invasive assessments. This strategy is quite unique and pivotal to evaluate the detailed haemodynamic changes during haemodaialysis.

    1. Double-blinded, randomized controlled trial of N-acetylcysteine for prevention of acute kidney injury in high risk patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass (pages 96–102)

      Jong Wook Song, Jae Kwang Shim, Sarah Soh, Jaewon Jang and Young Lan Kwak

      Article first published online: 24 JAN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12361

      Summary at a Glance

      This manuscript describes whether N-acetylcysteine (NAC) could prevent AKI in high risk patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass (OPCAB). Although high dose NAC did not prevent the development of postoperative AKI, it might be informative because only a few randomized control studies have been reported so far.
