    1. Efficient strategies to find diagnostic test accuracy studies in kidney journals (pages 513–518)

      Thomas E Rogerson, Maleeka Ladhani, Ruth Mitchell, Jonathan C Craig and Angela C Webster

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12445

      Summary at a Glance

      This study investigated the accuracy of 14 different search strategies to retrieve studies relating to diagnostic accuracy tests in three nephrology journals. The paper makes a strong argument for adding a strategy for diagnostic studies to a subject search strategy in MEDLINE to allow efficient access to these important studies.

      Social functioning and socioeconomic changes after introduction of regular dialysis treatment and impact of dialysis modality: A multi-centre survey of Japanese patients (pages 523–530)

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12482

      Summary at a Glance

      This study looked at the socioeconomic outcomes in patients who are started on renal replacement therapy in Japan. It also compared the effect that differing dialysis modality has on these outcomes and suggested a superior effect of peritoneal dialysis.

    1. Albuminuria and reduced glomerular filtration rate for predicting the renal outcomes in type 2 diabetic patients (pages 531–538)

      Nobue Tanaka, Tetsuya Babazono, Michino Takagi, Naoshi Yoshida, Kiwako Toya, Izumi Nyumura, Ko Hanai and Yasuko Uchigata

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12446

      Summary at a Glance

      This paper examines renal outcomes (as defined by initiation of renal replacement therapy or 50% reduction in eGFR) in over 3000 Japanese patients followed-up for nearly 6 years, demonstrating low progression to ESKD in the absence of albuminuria, but an elevated risk of mortality. This is an interesting study highlighting the prognostic importance of albuminuria in a Japanese population.

    1. Comparison of efficacy and safety between rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin and anti-T lymphocyte globulin in kidney transplantation from donation after cardiac death: A retrospective cohort study (pages 539–543)

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12469

      Summary at a Glance

      This study suggests that Thymoglobulin may have an advantage in reducing delayed graft function (DGF) in patients at higher risk for DGF in donation after cardiac death kidney transplantation.

    1. Novel risk score of contrast-induced nephropathy after percutaneous coronary intervention (pages 544–551)

      Ling Ji, XiaoFeng Su, Wei Qin, XuHua Mi, Fei Liu, XiaoHong Tang, Zi Li and LiChuan Yang

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12429

      Summary at a Glance

      Contrast induced nephropathy is a known yet important complication in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). The authors developed a new risk score model consisting of nine independent variables based on a retrospectively study of 805 Chinese patients undergoing PCI for acute coronary syndrome.

    2. Circulating tumour necrosis factor receptors 1 and 2 predict contrast-induced nephropathy and progressive renal dysfunction: A prospective cohort study (pages 552–559)

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12448

      Summary at a Glance

      In this study, elevated concentrations of circulating levels of tumour necrosis factor receptor were correlated with the occurrence of contrast induced nephropathy and long-term decline in glomerular filtration rate.

    1. Increasing frequency of idiopathic membranous nephropathy in primary glomerular disease: A 10-year renal biopsy study from a single Chinese nephrology centre (pages 560–566)

      Ping Zhu, Fu-de Zhou, Su-xia Wang, Ming-hui Zhao and Hai-yan Wang

      Article first published online: 21 JUL 2015 | DOI: 10.1111/nep.12542

      Summary at a Glance

      Zhu P et al. have retrospectively analyzed renal disease spectrum of 6049 patients who underwent renal biopsy. The patients were grouped into two periods at a 5-year interval: 2003–2007 (period 1) and 2008–2012 (period 2). The proportion of idiopathic membranous nephropathy increased in primary glomerular diseases from 16.8% in period 1 to 29.35% in period 2 in all groups of age (P < 0.001). They also found that this increases mainly due to the increase of early stages of iMN in young patients.
