Since the first campaign over eleven years ago, World Kidney Day (WKD) has turned into a global phenomenon. On March 8, 2018, medical professionals, government officials, the general public, celebrities and patients will take action locally.

Patients on renal replacement therapy experience higher rates of morbidity and mortality, infection being the second commonest cause of death. In our haemodialysis population, we identify the pathogens, sensitivity patterns, sources of infection and outcomes of Gram-negative bacteraemia.

laboNGAL is a new biomarker for the diagnosis of acute kidney insufficiency or according to the terminology accepted abroad, acute kidney injury (AKI). The main advantage of NGAL is the earliest increase in its concentration in the development of acute kidney insufficiency, especially when compared with other renal markers. At the same time, the increase in the level of NGAL is proportional to the severity of developing kidney injury. Thus, NGAL allows early diagnostics and stratification of risks in the development of acute renal injury and makes possible the timely application of preventive therapy. Early diagnosis of acute kidney insufficiency allows making clinical decisions in the shortest time before the onset of acute kidney insufficiency and making proactive measures to stop declining kidney function.

Patients maintained on hemodialysis (HD) have an impaired health-related quality of life (HRQOL). One factor that has been suggested to contribute to this impairment is the prolonged recovery time after completing a conventional HD session. The present study was designed to carefully examine the time to recovery (TTR) in patients maintained on three times/week conventional HD and evaluate the clinical and demographic features associated with the TTR.

Vitamin D deficiency is widely prevalent and often severe in children and adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Although native vitamin D {25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D]} is thought to have pleiotropic effects on many organ systems, its skeletal effects have been most widely studied.

This study was conducted to estimate incidences of renal replacement therapy (RRT) in the diabetic and non-diabetic populations in Germany.


Using the data of a regional dialysis centre (region population of 310 000), we assessed all incident RRT patients aged 30 years or older in 2002–08.
