Sep 7th, 2021 - Molecular markers detected in urine may improve our understanding of the evolution of bladder cancer (BCa) and its micro- and macroenvironment. Detection of such markers will identify disease earlier, allow stratification of patients according to risk, and improve prognostication and prediction of outcomes, thereby facilitating targeted therapy. However, current guidelines have yet to embrace s...

Aug 29th, 2021 - To compare the e!cacy and functional outcomes of dl-3-n-Butylphthalide (NBP) and human urinary kallidinogenase (HUK) on ischemic stroke patients and to determine their effects on serum tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). A prospective study was conducted on 57 ischemic stroke patients. Functional outcomes were assessed by the National Institute Hea...

Aug 10th, 2021 - In modern laboratory diagnostics of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), there is a clear tendency toward an increase in the sensitivity of methods for determining key CVD biomarkers, among which highly sensitive cardiac troponins (hs-Tn) deserve special attention. The introduction of the latter into clinical practice made it possible not only to improve the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarc...

Jul 31st, 2021 - Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common complication of cardiac surgery. An intraoperative monitor of kidney perfusion is needed to identify patients at risk for AKI. The authors created a noninvasive urinary oximeter that provides continuous measurements of urinary oxygen partial pressure and instantaneous urine flow. They hypothesized that intraoperative urinary oxygen partial pressure measurem...

Jul 29th, 2021 - Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is caused by germline mutations of PKD1 or PKD2 on one allele and a somatic mutation inactivating the remaining normal allele. However, if and how null ADPKD gene renal epithelial cells affect the biology and function of neighboring cells, including heterozygous renal epithelial cells, fibroblasts and macrophages during cyst initiation and ex...

Jul 21st, 2021 - A previous report showed that immune complex-ceruloplasmin (CP) in urine is associated with carcinogenesis and malignant behavior in bladder cancer (BC). We investigated the pathological significance and prognostic roles of urine and tissue levels of CP protein in BC patients. Urine CP levels were measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in 97 patients. CP expression in BC tissues wa...

Jul 20th, 2021 - The DAPA-HF trial demonstrated that sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SGLT2i) reduced worsening heart failure (HF) events in chronic HF patients with or without type 2 diabetic mellitus (T2DM). However, it remains unclear whether the effectiveness of SGLT2i is also observed in patients with decompensated HF irrespective of HbA1c level. Eighty-one T2DM patients hospitalized due to decom...

Jul 15th, 2021 - Many phenols and parabens are applied in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food, to prevent growth of bacteria and fungi. Whether these chemicals affect inflammatory diseases like allergies and overweight is largely unexplored. We aimed to assess the associations of use of personal care products with urine biomarkers levels of phenols and paraben exposure, and whether urine levels (reflecting body...

Jul 13th, 2021 - Autosomal dominant tubulointerstitial kidney disease (ADTKD)-uromodulin (UMOD) is the most common nonpolycystic genetic kidney disease, but it remains unrecognized due to its clinical heterogeneity and lack of screening test. Moreover, the fact that the clinical feature is a poor predictor of disease outcome further highlights the need for the development of mechanistic biomarkers in ADTKD. How...

Jul 11th, 2021 - New psychoactive substances are being launched in the drug market at a rapidly growing pace. More than 950 new psychoactive substances have been reported to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. The development of new psychoactive substance abuse has drawn risks on public health and safety. Phenethylamines, along with other stimulants, accounted for the majority of the new psychoactive ...

There is still uncertainty on whether the recommended quarantine duration is sufficient to reduce the risk of transmission. This study aimed to investigate the persistence of S...

Jul 2nd, 2021 - Cadmium (Cd) is a common heavy metal that mainly causes renal damage. There is a lack of research on the large-scale and systematic evaluation of the association between urinary Cd (U-Cd) and various effect biomarkers among Chinese residents. Based on the establishment process of dietary Cd limit standards by European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), the dose-response relationships between U-Cd an...

Jun 29th, 2021 - In 2019, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received a citizen petition indicating that ranitidine contained the probable human carcinogen N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA). In addition, the petitioner proposed that ranitidine could convert to NDMA in humans; however, this was primarily based on a small clinical study that detected an increase in urinary excretion of NDMA after oral ranitidi...

Jun 29th, 2021 - Although urinary alpha-1-microglobulin has been used as a marker of tubular dysfunction, its clinical and prognostic values in patients with acute heart failure have not been validated. We analyzed 623 patients (74 ± 13 years old, 60.0% male) with acute heart failure in whom urinary alpha-1-microglobulin (A1MG) levels were measured as tubular markers at the time of admission. The primary endpoi...
