Salt and hypertension : dietary minerals, volume homeostatis, and cardiovascular regulation by R Rettig( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Controversy regarding the wisdom of a high salt intake has been with us for 5000 years. In the Nei Ching, the oldest of the extant medical writings, the Yellow Emperor observed, "Hence, if too much salt is in the food, the pulse hardens, tears make their appearance, and the complexion changes". At about the same period in history, Job asked the question, "Can that which is unsavory be eaten without salt?" It is not apparent whether or not the Almighty provided a clear answer. The connection between dietary salt intake and hypertension was appreciated following the observations of AMBARD, BEAUJARD, VOLLHARD, ALLEN, and others. However, DAHL emphasized this relationship, as demonstrated by his epidemiological observations, his studies in human subjects, and his development of a genetically mediated form of salt-sensitive hypertension in rats. DAHL and his followers argued that hypertension was a disease of acculturation, or even of self-abuse. Undaunted by skeptics such as PICKERING, they suggested that if Western man would merely curtail his intake of the granular condiment, hypertension would not develop and blood pressure would not increase with age. Bucolic native societies were given as examples where such cardiovascular bliss was readily attained

Association of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease with chronic kidney disease a systematic review and meta-analysis by G Musso( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background:Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a frequent, under-recognized condition and a risk factor for renal failure and cardiovascular disease. Increasing evidence connects non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) to CKD. We conducted a meta-analysis to determine whether the presence and severity of NAFLD are associated with the presence and severity of CKD. Methods and Findings:English and non-English articles from international online databases from 1980 through January 31, 2014 were searched. Observational studies assessing NAFLD by histology, imaging, or biochemistry and defining CKD as either estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) andlt;60 ml/min/1.73 m2 or proteinuria were included. Two reviewers extracted studies independently and in duplicate. Individual participant data (IPD) were solicited from all selected studies. Studies providing IPD were combined with studies providing only aggregate data with the two-stage method. Main outcomes were pooled using random-effects models. Sensitivity and subgroup analyses were used to explore sources of heterogeneity and the effect of potential confounders. The influences of age, whole-body/abdominal obesity, homeostasis model of insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), and duration of follow-up on effect estimates were assessed by meta-regression. Thirty-three studies (63,902 participants, 16 population-based and 17 hospital-based, 20 cross-sectional, and 13 longitudinal) were included. For 20 studies (61% of included studies, 11 cross-sectional and nine longitudinal, 29,282 participants), we obtained IPD. NAFLD was associated with an increased risk of prevalent (odds ratio [OR] 2.12, 95% CI 1.69-2.66) and incident (hazard ratio [HR] 1.79, 95% CI 1.65-1.95) CKD. Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) was associated with a higher prevalence (OR 2.53, 95% CI 1.58-4.05) and incidence (HR 2.12, 95% CI 1.42-3.17) of CKD than simple steatosis. Advanced fibrosis was associated with a higher prevalence (OR 5.20, 95% CI 3.14-8.61) and incidence (HR 3.29, 95% CI 2.30-4.71) of CKD than non-advanced fibrosis. In all analyses, the magnitude and direction of effects remained unaffected by diabetes status, after adjustment for other risk factors, and in other subgroup and meta-regression analyses. In cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, the severity of NAFLD was positively associated with CKD stages. Limitations of analysis are the relatively small size of studies utilizing liver histology and the suboptimal sensitivity of ultrasound and biochemistry for NAFLD detection in population-based studies. Conclusion:The presence and severity of NAFLD are associated with an increased risk and severity of CKD. Please see later in the article for the Editors Summary. © 2014 Musso et al

Corrosion behaviour of stainless steels and a single crystal superalloy in a ternary LiCl-KCl-CsCl molten salt( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Highlights: Corrosion behaviour of different materials was tested in a fused LiCl-KCl-CsCl salt. The low-carbon steel showed intergranular corrosion for all testing conditions. The Ti-stabilised steel was protected up to about 500 °C and short exposure times. The Ni-base superalloy (CMSX-4) showed superior corrosion properties at 800 °C. Regarding corrosion, liquid salt cooling is feasible for Directional Solidification of superalloys. Abstract: In the present work, the corrosion properties of a low-carbon stainless steel (X2CrNi18-9) and a Ti-stabilised high-carbon stainless steel (X6CrNiTi18-10) were investigated in a molten LiCl-KCl-CsCl salt at 400, 500, and 600 °C for 1, 3, 9 and 27 h. In addition, a Ni-based superalloy (CMSX-4) was tested at 800 °C for 3 h. The low-carbon steel revealed severe intergranular corrosion for all testing conditions, whereas the Ti-stabilised steel was protected against intergranular corrosion by a Cr2 O3 passive layer for short exposure times and up to a temperature of approximately 500 °C. In comparison, CMSX-4 revealed superior corrosion resistance

Effects of renal denervation on renal pelvic contractions and connexin expression in rats( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Aims: The renal pelvis shows spontaneous rhythmic contractile activity. We assessed to what extent this activity depends on renal innervation and studied the role of connexins in pelvic contractions. Methods: Rats underwent unilateral renal denervation or renal transplantation. Renal pelvic pressure and diuresis were measured invivo . Spontaneous and agonist‐induced contractions of isolated renal pelves were investigated by wire myography. Rat and human renal pelvic connexin mRNA abundances and connexin localization were studied by real‐time PCR and immunofluorescence respectively. Results: Renal denervation or transplantation increased renal pelvic pressure invivo by about 60 and 150%, respectively, but did not significantly affect pelvic contraction frequency. Under invitro conditions, isolated pelvic preparations from innervated or denervated kidneys showed spontaneous contractions. Pelves from denervated kidneys showed about 50% higher contraction frequencies than pelves from innervated kidneys, whereas contraction force was similar in pelves from denervated and innervated kidneys. There was no denervation‐induced supersensitivity to noradrenaline or endothelin‐1. Renal denervation did not increase pelvic connexin37, 40, 43 or 45 mRNA abundances. Gap junction blockade had no effect on spontaneous pelvic contractile activity. Conclusions: The denervation‐induced effect on pelvic pressure may be the consequence of the enhanced diuresis. The mechanisms underlying the denervation‐induced effects on pelvic contraction frequency remain unknown. Our data rule out a major role for two important candidates, by showing that renal denervation neither induced supersensitivity to contractile agonists nor increased connexin mRNA abundance in the pelvic wall
Genome-Wide Association and Functional Follow-Up Reveals New Loci for Kidney Function by Cristian Pattaro( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important public health problem with a genetic component. We performed genomewide association studies in up to 130,600 European ancestry participants overall, and stratified for key CKD risk factors. We uncovered 6 new loci in association with estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), the primary clinical measure of CKD, in or near MPPED2, DDX1, SLC47A1, CDK12, CASP9, and INO80. Morpholino knockdown of mpped2 and casp9 in zebrafish embryos revealed podocyte and tubular abnormalities with altered dextran clearance, suggesting a role for these genes in renal function. By providing new insights into genes that regulate renal function, these results could further our understanding of the pathogenesis of CKD
