The RAD is a conventional blood filter device lined with human renal tubule cells, grown from donor kidneys. "The cells are made available to carry ...

Head-to-Head 96-Week Study Shows EPZICOM(R) is Comparable to Truvada(R) in Efficacy and Safety Measures in HIV Treatment-Naive Patients

... (4% vs. <1%). Prospective HLA-B*5701 screening was not employed in this study. One percent of patients receiving Truvada developed proximal renal tubule dysfunction (vs. 0% for EPZICOM). Overall, treatment-limiting adverse events were comparable between the two arms. Important Information about ...

New treatment option studied for bladder cancer

... common cancer, often obstructs tubules that connect the kidney to the bladder, says Dr. Coleman. While the cancer typically doesnt spread upward, tubule blockage damages the kidneys. Additionally, bladder cancer incidence peaks in the 60s and 70s when other diseases, such as type 2 diabetes and ...

Chinese Medicinal Compound Stops Formation of Cysts in Polycystic Kidney

... compound. During normal kidney development, cells lining the kidney tubules continue growing and dividing until they receive a signal that the tubule is fully formed. The switch that turns on that signal consists of the growth regulatory proteins PKD1 and PKD2, located on hair-like cilia in the ...

Prestigious Wilson Award Goes To Yale Cell Biologist Joel Rosenbaum

... not flow in, because the cilia are missing, or the polycystins on the membrane are missing or ineffective, a signal is sent to the nucleus and the tubule cells divide—and continue to divide. PKD is, therefore, a cancer of the kidney, where cells that should not be dividing start to divide because of a ...
