Objective We studied three types of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) equations and evaluated which type was strongly associated with comorbidities in living kidney transplantation (LKT) donors. Methods We compared the Japanese modified estimated glomerular filtration (eGFR), Modification of Diet in Renal Disease, and Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration equations (Jm-eGFR, Jm-MDRD, and Jm-CKD-EPI, respectively) for Japanese LKT donors with respect to their relationships w...

Background and objectives Vitamin D receptor activators and calcimimetics (calcium-sensing receptor agonists) are two major options for medical treatment of secondary hyperparathyroidism. A higher serum calcification propensity (a shorter T50 value) is a novel surrogate marker of calcification stress and mortality in patients with CKD. We tested a hypothesis that a calcimimetic agent etelcalcetide is more effective in increasing T50 value than a vitamin D receptor activator maxacalcitol. Design,...

IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) is a fibroinflammatory condition that can affect various organs. The kidney is one of the organs most frequently affected and IgG4-related tubulointerstitial nephritis (TIN) is the most dominant feature.1 However, several radiologically characteristic lesions within the kidney have also been shown to be diagnostic for IgG4-RD affecting the kidney, in the setting of definitively diagnosed IgG4-related lesions in extrarenal organs.2 Therefore the term ‘IgG4-related k...

Background There is no evidence regarding appropriate target hemoglobin levels in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients with an erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA)-hyporesponsiveness. Therefore, we conducted a randomized controlled study in non-dialysis dependent CKD (NDD-CKD) patients with ESA-hyporesponsiveness, comparing results of intensive versus conservative treatment to maintain hemoglobin levels. Methods This was a multicenter, open-label, randomized, parallel-group study conducted at...

Background In 2011, the IgG4-related kidney disease (IgG4-RKD) working group of the Japanese Society of Nephrology proposed diagnostic criteria for IgG4-RKD. The aim of the present study was to validate those criteria and develop a revised version. Methods Between April 2012 and May 2019, we retrospectively collected Japanese patients with kidney disease, for whom data on serum IgG4 values and/or immunohistological staining for IgG4 in renal biopsy samples were available. These patients were cla...
