Cinnamon, a member of the Lauraceae family, has been widely used as a spice and traditional herbal medicine for centuries and hasshown beneficial effects in cardiovascular disease, obesity, and diabetes. However, its effectiveness as a therapeutic intervention forchronic kidney disease (CKD) remains unproven. The bioactive compounds within cinnamon, such as cinnamaldehyde, cinnamicacid, and cinnamate, can mitigate oxidative stress, inflammation, hyperglycemia,...

Anemia is common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and is mainly caused by insufficient production of erythropoietinfrom fibrotic kidney. Because anemia impairs quality of life and overall prognosis, recombinant human erythropoietin-related products(erythropoiesis-stimulating agents, ESAs) have been developed to increase hemoglobin level for decades. However, many safety concernshave been announced regarding the use of ESAs, including an increased occurrence...

Uremic pruritus is one of the most common and bothersome symptoms in patients with end-stage renal disease. Most patients withuremic pruritus experience a prolonged and relapsing course and significant impairments of quality of life. The pathophysiology of uremicpruritus is not completely understood. A complex interplay among cutaneous biology and the nervous and immune systems hasbeen implicated, with the involvement of...
Recent innovations in renal replacement technology and potential applications to transplantation and dialysis patients: a review of current methods

Kidney Res Clin Pract. 2023;42(1):53-62.   Published online October 25, 2022
The current standard of care for patients with end-stage renal disease (ERSD) is a kidney transplant or dialysis when a donor organ isnot available. The growing gap between patients who require a kidney transplant and the availability of donor organs as well as thenegative effects of long-term dialysis, such as infection, limited mobility, and risk of cancer development, drive the...

Kidney Res Clin Pract. 2023;42(1):63-74.   Published online September 6, 2022
Background: The spectrum of biopsy-confirmed kidney disease varies with regions and periods. We describe the distribution ofpathological types and epidemiological characteristics of kidney diseases in Northwest China due to regional differences in geographicalenvironment, social economy, and dietary habits.Methods: Kidney biopsy cases from 2005 to 2020 in Xijing Hospital were retrospectively analyzed. Pathological characteristics of patientsin different periods were analyzed using...
Deep learning predicts the differentiation of kidney organoids derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells
Keonhyeok Park, Jong Young Lee, Soo Young Lee, Iljoo Jeong, Seo-Yeon Park, Jin Won Kim, Sun Ah Nam, Hyung Wook Kim, Yong Kyun Kim, Seungchul Lee
Kidney Res Clin Pract. 2023;42(1):75-85.   Published online September 8, 2022
Background: Kidney organoids derived from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) contain multilineage nephrogenic progenitor cells andcan recapitulate the development of the kidney. Kidney organoids derived from hPSCs have the potential to be applied in regenerative medicineas well as renal disease modeling, drug screening, and nephrotoxicity testing. Despite biotechnological advances, individual differencesin morphological and growth characteristics among kidney organoids need to...

Background: Several studies have reported that depression is prevalent in patients with diabetes or chronic kidney disease. However,the relationship between weight changes and the risk of depression has not been elucidated in patients with diabetic kidney disease(DKD).Methods: From the Korean National Health Insurance Service database, we selected 67,866 patients with DKD and body weightdata from two consecutive health examinations with...

Background: Alternative complement pathway dysregulation plays a key role in glomerulonephritis (GN) and is associated with C3 deposition. Herein, we examined pathological and clinical differences between cases of primary GN with C3-dominant (C3D-GN) and nondominant (C3ND-GN) deposition. Methods: We extracted primary GN data from the Korean GlomeruloNEphritis sTudy (KoGNET). C3D-GN was defined as C3 staining two grades greater than C1q,...

Kidney Res Clin Pract. 2023;42(1):127-137.   Published online September 14, 2022
Background: The diagnosis of peritonitis among peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients is based on clinical presentation, dialysis effluentwhite blood cell (WBC) count, and dialysis effluent culture. Peritoneal fluid WBC count is very important in the initial diagnosis of peritonitis.The purpose of this work was to determine the optimal number of peritoneal WBCs with different clinical presentations at admissionto define PD-related peritonitis.Methods:...

Kidney Res Clin Pract. 2023;42(1):138-148.   Published online January 31, 2023
Background: Generally, an induction agent is chosen based on the conditions of the deceased donor and the recipient. Antithymocyte globulin (ATG) is preferred in relatively high-risk conditions. No clear evidence indicates which induction agent is safer or more efficient for deceased donor kidney transplantation (DDKT). This study compares the efficacy and safety of basiliximab (BSX) and ATG according to donor...
