Microcyst formation and HIV-1 gene expression occur in multiple nephron segments in HIV-associated nephropathy
Is the prevalence of HIV-associated nephropathy
Renal disease in human immunodeficiency virus--Not just HIV-associated nephropathy
1) This patient had an estimated clearance of 32 ml/min prior to ART (this was probably related to HIV-associated nephropathy
and/or hypertensive nephropathy).
A 20-year history of childhood HIV-associated nephropathy
A 34 year-old African American male with HIV-1 infection for 12 years and end-stage renal disease secondary to HIV-associated nephropathy
(HIVAN) on hemodialysis for the last six months was admitted for further evaluation of a positive blood culture for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) obtained during his dialysis session.
(HIVAN) is most common and, unless treated with antiretroviral therapy (ART), progresses rapidly to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
As one example, patients with HIV-associated nephropathy
who receive HAART therapy sometimes recover substantial kidney function (Betjes & Verhagen, 2002; Daugas, Rougier, & Hill, 2005; Kirchner, 2002).
The current recommendations for initiating ART include CD4 count < 500 cells/mm3, or if the patient has either concurrent HIV-associated nephropathy
, hepatitis B virus coinfection when treatment of hepatitis B is indicated, or pregnancy.
The dysregulated podocyte phenotype: a novel concept in the pathogenesis of collapsing idiopathic focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and HIV-associated nephropathy
Histologically, this group is divided into the 'classic' HIV-associated nephropathy
(HIVAN) with focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (HIV-FGS), HIV-associated immune complex disease (HIV-IC), and HIV-associated thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura/haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HIV-TTP/HUS).
SAN DIEGO--Median survival time of patients with end-stage renal disease stemming from HIV-associated nephropathy
has more than doubled nationwide since highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) was introduced in January of 1996, Dr.
