Contribution to the etiopathogenesis of orthostatic proteinuria in children

Abstract

The results of sequential scintigraphy of the kidneys of 22 children with orthostatic proteinuria and of 25 patients with nephritis or nephrotic syndrome, respectively, have been evaluated. At particular time intervals significant differences have been found between the two groups. On the basis of the visual method of evaluation of scintiscans and by bilateral comparison the authors conclude that in children with orthostatic proteinuria the frequency of asymmetry of the kidneys was significantly higher. These changes were most likely due to spasms or other disturbances of the function of excretory urinary passages in the calyx-pelvis system as responses to unfavourable emotional inpulses (intravenous application of the substance, etc.) and to the sitting position during the examination.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
