According to the annual survey of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy Renal Data Registry (JRDR) conducted at the end of 2018, there were a total of 339,841 patients receiving dialysis (hereinafter, dialysis patients) in Japan. The survey included questions regarding the presence/absence of dementia, the performance status (PS), and the exercise habits of individual patients. The survey revealed that 10.8% of all dialysis patients had dementia (1.8% in the age group of less than 65 years, ...

According to the annual survey of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy Renal Data Registry (JRDR) conducted at the end of 2018, a total of 339,841 patients were receiving dialysis (hereinafter, dialysis patients) in Japan. This survey included an investigation of individual test results for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody (HCV-Ab), HCV-RNA, and serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (glutamic pyruvic transaminase [GPT]). The survey revealed that among dia...

The reclassification of membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) into immune-complex MPGN (IC-MPGN) and C3 glomerulopathy (C3G) based on immunofluorescence findings in kidney biopsies has provided insights into these two distinct diseases. C3G is further classified into dense deposit disease and C3 glomerulonephritis (C3GN) based on electron micrographic findings. Although these diseases have poor outcomes, limited Japanese literature confined to small, single-center cohorts exist on thes...

Patients with adipsic hypernatremia present with chronic hypernatremia because of defects in thirst sensation and dysregulated salt appetite, without demonstrable hypothalamic structural lesions. The involvement of autoantibodies directed against the sodium channel, Nax in the subfornical organ (SFO) has recently been reported. However, the pathophysiology of water and electrolyte imbalance underlying the disease has yet to be elucidated. We describe the case of a 5-year-old boy who complained o...

Background null Recurrence of SRNS is a major challenge in KT. Several clinical factors, including initial steroid sensitivity, have been associated with increased post-transplant SRNS recurrence risk. However, conflicting data have been reported, possibly due to the heterogeneous pathophysiology of SRNS and the lack of genetic testing of SRNS patients. Furthermore, the response to immunosuppressive therapies has not been evaluated. null Methods null Seventy patients aged 1-15 years at SRNS onse...

Abstract null null Background null Monopharmacy with antipsychotics and antidepressants is the first-line treatment for schizophrenia and major depressive disorder (MDD) in most clinical guidelines, while polypharmacy with psychotropic agents in the treatment of schizophrenia is common in clinical practice. There are no detailed data on the prescription patterns for inpatients with mental illness with reliable diagnoses made by treating psychiatrists. null null null Methods null We gathered pres...

Approximately 10 years have passed since the Peritoneal Dialysis Guidelines were formulated in 2009. Much evidence has been reported during the succeeding years, which were not taken into consideration in the previous guidelines, e.g., the next peritoneal dialysis PD trial of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) in Japan, the significance of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), the effects of icodextrin solution, new developments in perit...
Determining the cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) has crucial implications for evaluating the risk of posttransplant recurrence. The degree of foot process effacement (FPE) on electron micrographs (EM) of native kidney biopsies can reportedly differentiate primary FSGS from secondary FSGS. However, no systematic evaluation of FPE in genetic FSGS has been performed. In this study, percentage of FPE and foot process width (FPW) in native kidney biopsies were analyzed in eight gene...
