Diuretic Treatment in Heart Failure
31/12/69 - Most accepted pharmacologic treatments for heart failure are supported by evidence from large clinical trials. In contrast, evidence from large, well-controlled clinical trials to guide the use of diuretics, among the most frequently used drugs in heart failure, is generally lacking. Fluid…

Tolvaptan in Later-Stage Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
31/12/69 - Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) is the fourth leading cause of end-stage kidney disease in adults. When the genes encoding polycystin 1 (PKD1) and polycystin 2 (PKD2) are disrupted, tubular epithelial cells in vasopressin-sensitive distal nephrons and collecting ducts show…

Tolvaptan and Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease
31/12/69 - Approximately half the patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), a condition due to deficiency in polycystin 1 or 2, have end-stage kidney disease by 60 years of age.

Altered protein and energy homeostasis, abnormal protein catabolism, acid?base derangements, and hormonal…

ACE Inhibitors and Statins in Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes
31/12/69 - Children with type 1 diabetes are at higher risk for long-term renal and cardiovascular disease and death than the general population, and adolescence is a period of risk for the development of complications, since adequate glycemic control is difficult to achieve. Rapid increases in albumin…

Glecaprevir and Pibrentasvir in Patients with HCV and Severe Renal Impairment
31/12/69 - Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is more prevalent among patients with chronic kidney disease than among those without the disease. Patients who have chronic kidney disease and concomitant HCV infection are also at higher risk for progression to end-stage renal disease, as well as for compensated…

Electrolyte Disturbances in Patients with Chronic Alcohol-Use Disorder
31/12/69 - Electrolyte disturbances are common occurrences in patients with chronic alcohol-use disorder, and the quantity and duration of a given patient?s alcohol consumption generally determine the clinical significance of these disturbances. Electrolyte abnormalities tend to be most severe in patients in…
