    1. Hyperbaric oxygen in the treatment of calciphylaxis: A case series and literature review (pages 444–450)

      Jennifer An, Bridget Devaney, Khai Yang Ooi, Sharon Ford, Geoff Frawley and Solomon Menahem

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12433

      Summary at a Glance

      Calciphylaxis is often a pre-terminal event in dialysis dependent kidney disease, with obese and diabetic patients at highest risk. The role of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) in the treatment of calciphylaxis has been unclear, with the therapy often being used as a last therapeutic resort. This paper is possibly the largest case series of HBOT use for the treatment of calciphylaxis and provides useful insights into its place in managing the disease.

      Associations between sex and incident chronic kidney disease in a prospective diabetic cohort (pages 451–458)

      Margaret K Yu, Wayne Katon and Bessie A Young

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12468

      Summary at a Glance

      The authors have evaluated associations between sex and chronic kidney disease (CKD) incidence in a primary care population with diabetes using Chronic Kidney Disease-Epidemiology equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and sex-specific definitions of microalbuminuria. They found that women had an increased risk of incident CKD compared with men. They also found that this difference in incident CKD was primarily driven by differences in incident eGFR < 60 mL/min per 1.73 m2.

    1. C4d-negative antibody-mediated rejection with high anti-angiotensin II type I receptor antibodies in absence of donor-specific antibodies (pages 467–473)

      Alexander Fuss, Christopher M Hope, Susan Deayton, Greg Donald Bennett, Rhonda Holdsworth, Robert P Carroll and P Toby H Coates

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12441

      Summary at a Glance

      This is a case series summarizing the outcome of antibody-mediated rejection occurring after kidney transplantation attributed to presumed AT1-receptor antibody in the absence of donor-specific anti-HLA antibody. However, the cost-effectiveness of screening in all individuals with rejection remains unclear.

    1. Prevalence, awareness and treatment of chronic kidney disease among middle-aged and elderly: The China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study (pages 474–484)

      Shengfeng Wang, Ru Chen, Qing Liu, Zheng Shu, Siyan Zhan and Liming Li

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12449

      Summary at a Glance

      The China Health and Retirement Longitudinal Study is a cross sectional study examining the prevalence of CKD, disease awareness compared to other chronic diseases in the population, and whether they were being treated for their CKD. The overall prevalence of CKD was 11.5% (95%CI: 10.1–12.8%).Among all patients with CKD, only 8.7% were aware of the diagnosis. 4.9% of the patients were receiving treatment. There is a surprising prevalence of CKD in the Chinese middle-aged and elderly population, with disproportionately low awareness and treatment. A comprehensive strategy toward prevention, screening, treatment and control of CKD is needed to slow the epidemic of CKD.

    1. Effect of acute kidney injury on mortality and hospital stay in patient with severe acute pancreatitis (pages 485–491)

      Jiaojiao Zhou, Yi Li, Yi Tang, Fang Liu, Shaobin Yu, Ling Zhang, Xiaoxi Zeng, Yuliang Zhao and Ping Fu

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12439

      Summary at a Glance

      In this retrospective study of AKI following acute pancreatitis, the authors identify risk factors associated with mortality. These findings provide a basis for focussing on high risk patients for future trials of therapeutic interventions.

    2. Health-related quality of life in survivors of acute kidney injury: The Prolonged Outcomes Study of the Randomized Evaluation of Normal versus Augmented Level Replacement Therapy study outcomes (pages 492–498)

      Article first published online: 9 JUN 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12488

      Summary at a Glance

      In this case-control study, the health-related quality of life (HRQOL) of 282 severe acute kidney injury (AKI) survivors was compared with that of the general population. The result shows that physical and mental components of HRQOL are substantially lower amongst survivors of severe AKI. The difference remains significant after adjustment for the degree of renal impairment.
