    1. Association of tumour necrosis factor-α polymorphism in patients with end stage renal disease (pages 387–391)

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12398

      Summary at a Glance

      Individuals with homozygous TNF-α (−308G>A) polymorphisms appear to have a significant association with CRF and ESRD, and thus this may be a predictor for development of the disease. These patients also demonstrated elevated serum TNF-α levels, which may be a contributory factor.

    1. Impact of hyperuricaemia on the chronic kidney disease-associated risk factors in a community-based population (pages 399–404)

      Yoshiko Tsumuraya, Tomo Hirayama, Emiko Tozuka, Wakana Furuta, Shinobu Utsugi, Atsuko Tsuchiya, Akira Hishida and Hiromichi Kumagai

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12411

      Summary at a Glance

      This cross-sectional study demonstrated that the association of incident CKD with hyperuricaemia was stronger than with other CKD-risk factors. This association between hyperuricaemia and CKD was more significant in the advanced stage of CKD.

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12406

      Summary at a Glance

      Shimizu et al. have demonstrated that UUN/BUN is a simple parameter and is better than urine osmolality in predicting the immediate as well as subsequent clinical response to AVP2 antagonist, Tolvaptan.

    1. Primary IgA nephropathy in elderly patients (pages 419–425)

      Wisit Cheungpasitporn, Samih H Nasr, Charat Thongprayoon, Michael A Mao and Qi Qian

      Article first published online: 21 APR 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12440

      Summary at a Glance

      Results of the study showed that IgA nephropathy (IgAN) diagnosed at age >65 years tends to have faster renal disease progression and lower renal and patient survival. This is mainly due to a high rate of hypertension and tubulointerstitial changes and vascular sclerosis observed on kidney biopsy. Reviewer 2 expressed an interest to write an Editorial which I support.
