Summary at a glance This retrospective study aimed to assess changes in haemoglobin levels and explore the effectiveness of roxadustat and recombinant human erythropoietin for the treatment of anaemia in patients infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19 at Peking University International Hospital between November 2022 and February 2023. Abstract Aim Patients undergoing dialysis are at high risk for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Haemoglobin (Hb) levels may be changed in patients infected with the Omicron variant of COVID-19 who are undergoing peritoneal dialysis (PD). Therefore, we ..read more

Summary at a glance Technique failure is a significant obstacle for peritoneal dialysis (PD), which may be the main reason for relatively poor PD retention rates worldwide. This study aimed to establish a prediction model in PD patients to estimate the risk of technique failure and guide clinical practice. Abstract Aim This study aimed to establish a prediction model in peritoneal dialysis patients to estimate the risk of technique failure and guide clinical practice. Methods Clinical and laboratory data of 424 adult peritoneal dialysis patients were retrospectively collected. The risk predic ..read more

Case report of the successful use of semaglutide to achieve target BMI prior to renal transplant in two patients with end‐stage‐kidney‐disease

Abstract The following cases demonstrate a proof of concept for the safe and effective use of the glucagon-like-peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA) semaglutide for weight loss in obese, non-diabetic, end stage kidney disease (ESKD) patients on haemodialysis (HD), who are unable to undergo renal transplantation due to obesity. Obesity is a common barrier to wait-listing for renal transplantation with effective, broadly applicable weight loss strategies lacking. GLP-1 RAs have been shown to be effective adjuncts to achieve weight loss in non-diabetic obese people. However, the major clinical t ..read more

Summary at a glance This cross-sectional study examined possible associations between the most difficult activity and the weakest muscle in elderly patients undergoing haemodialysis. We found potential link of upper limb activity with hip abduction, handgrip and elbow flexion as well as the link of lower limb activity with knee extension strength. Abstract Aim Patients undergoing haemodialysis have reduced muscle strength and impaired activities of daily living (ADL). We examined possible relationship between difficult ADL and corresponding muscle weakness in elderly haemodialysis patients. M ..read more

The retraction has been agreed due to duplications within Figure 2 and the inclusion of figure elements in Figure 1 and 2 that were previously published [1-4]. Thus, the conclusions of this article are considered invalid. The authors have been informed of the decision to retract but did not agree with it. References: 1. Hanaa H. Ahmeda, Wafaa Gh.

Abstract Aim To evaluate changes in allograft kidney length in renal transplant recipients and the relationship with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Methods This single-centre retrospective study of renal transplant recipients was conducted at Flinders Medical Centre (FMC) from January 2007 to June 2020. Donor and recipient details, renal allograft length from transplant ultrasounds at 0, 1, 3, 6 and 12 months were collected. The association between compensatory renal hypertrophy (CRH) and eGFR and its magnitude was analysed using multivariate multilevel mixed-effects linear regre ..read more

Impact of renal dysfunction on the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis using urinary trypsinogen‐2: A retrospective study

Summary at a glance Early diagnosis of acute pancreatitis is crucial. Although previous studies reported that urinary trypsinogen-2 is a useful biomarker for diagnosis, the validity of the qualitative urinary trypsinogen-2 test in diagnosing renal dysfunction remains unknown. In patients with reduced renal function, qualitative urinary trypsinogen-2 test may produce false positive results. Abstract Aim Early diagnosis of acute pancreatitis is crucial, and urinary trypsinogen has been recently reported as a useful biomarker for diagnosing acute pancreatitis. We aimed to evaluate the impact of ..read more

Summary at a glance PH1 is not an isolated kidney disease but a systemic disease that can affect almost all systems. The fact that kidney damage develops earlier and is the leading problem compared with other manifestations should not cause the extrarenal manifestations of PH1 to be ignored. Abstract Background Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is characterized by increased endogenous oxalate production and deposition as calcium oxalate crystals. The main manifestations are nephrocalcinosis/nephrolithiasis, causing impaired kidney function. We aimed to evaluate the clinical characteristics a ..read more
