Determining the Frequency of Acquired Cystic Kidney Disease in End Stage Renal Disease Patients on Hemodialysis at Dialysis Centre of Tertiary Care Hospital

Muhammad AleemArsalan Nawaz


Objectives To determine the frequency of acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD) among patients of end-stage renal disease. Methods This cross-sectional study was conducted at the University of Lahore Teaching Hospital after approval from the ethical review committee. About 150 patients with end-stage renal disease fulfilling the inclusion criteria and undergoing three hemodialysis sessions per week for six months were approached. The patients underwent ultrasonography by the same consultant radiologist and the presence of acquired polycystic kidney disease was noted in the proforma. Data was stratified for age, gender and duration of hemodialysis and the chi-square test was applied. Results The mean age of the study participants was 47.31±9.44 years and males were majority in number with 92 (61.3%). The acquired cystic kidney disease was noted in 20 (13%) participants. There was significant difference noted in different age groups as six (6.5%) patients in the 18-40 age group and 14 (24%) patients in the 40-80 age group have acquired kidney disease (p-value=0.002). No important association between ACKD, age, and gender were found. None of these patients had evidence of renal cell carcinoma, extrarenal cysts, retroperitoneal or i...Continue Reading

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.


Blastomycosis fungal infections spread through inhaling Blastomyces dermatitidis spores. Discover the latest research on blastomycosis fungal infections here.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.
