The natural history of diabetic renal disease can be divided into different stages according to the degree of albuminuria and the level of glomerular filtration rate (GFR). Assessment of the early hyperfiltration state, as well as determination of the rate of decline in kidney function at a later stage require precise and accurate methods to measure GFR. In this article, we briefly remind the reader of the physiological basis of GFR. We then review the different techniques for the monitoring of kidney function (inulin clearance, endogenous creatinine clearance, plasma disappearance of a radiolabelled tracer) and discuss the pro and cons of each of them in different clinical settings. Finally, we try to define a rational use of these techniques in everyday clinical practice. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: This study was conducted to assess retrospectively the clinical tolerance of SD treated plasma and to compare it to other labile blood products (red blood cell and platelet concentrates). METHODS: Adverse events (AEs) related to the use of blood products at the Blood Transfusion Center (BTC) are routinely collected through a formalised system of hemovigilance. All AEs reported are entered into a safety data base which was used for the study. All AEs reported during a one-year period to the BTC were retrospectively re-assessed and descriptive statistics calculated. RESULTS: 5064 units of SD treated plasma were transfused to 894 recipients during the study period at the occasion of 1553 transfusions. No AE associated to SD treatment plasma was reported during that period. In contrast, during the same period, 485 AEs associated with the use of red blood cell concentrates (RBCC) were reported in 251 patients at the occasion of 262 transfusions. 2.1% (251/11,748) of the patients transfused with RBCC experienced one or more AEs. The incidence of AEs per unit transfused was 1.3% (485/37,332), and 2.4% (485/20,460) of RBCC transfusions were associated with one or more AEs. 142 AEs associated with the use of platelet concentrate (PC) were observed in 69 patients at the occasion of 73 transfusions. 4.2% (69/1645) of patients transfused with PC experienced one or more AEs. The incidence of AEs per unit transfused was 1.1% (142/12,772), and 2.8% (142/5034) of PC transfusions were associated with one or more AEs. All reported AEs were classified and non serious. The most frequently observed AEs were fever, chills and rashes which accounted for roughly 64% of all reported AEs. CONCLUSION: As for the overall clinical tolerance of red cell and platelet concentrates, the results of this study are in complete agreement with the published literature. The study also confirms the extremely good tolerability of SD treated plasma in comparison with other labile blood products. [less ▲]

The capability of neonates to achieve cytokine balance was evaluated. Production of the pro-inflammatory cytokines TNF alpha and IL-8, of the natural anti-inflammatory cytokine IL10 and of the regulator of the acute phase response IL6 was assessed after whole blood stimulation by lipopolysaccharide in cord blood (n = 10), adult volunteers serving as control (n = 17). Additionally, circulating cytokines were determined in cord and in maternal blood immediately after delivery (n = 27, respectively). Significant production of TNF alpha, IL8, IL10 and IL6 was observed in cord blood after lipopolysaccharide stimulation and was similar to cytokine production in adult blood. The plasma concentrations of TNF alpha were significantly higher in cord than in maternal blood, while plasma concentrations of IL10 and IL6 were significantly lower. Our results demonstrate fully developed capability of whole cord blood to synthesize pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in response to a pro-inflammatory stimulation in vitro. In vivo, however, higher circulating TNF alpha and lower IL10 and IL6 levels in cord blood suggest that the inflammatory stress associated with normal delivery does not induce detectable anti-inflammatory response in neonates at birth.

We describe the development of a multipoint nonparametric quantitative trait loci mapping method based on the Wilcoxon rank-sum test applicable to outbred half-sib pedigrees. The method has been evaluated on a simulated dataset and its efficiency compared with interval mapping by using regression. It was shown that the rank-based approach is slightly inferior to regression when the residual variance is homoscedastic normal; however, in three out of four other scenarios envisaged, i.e., residual variance heteroscedastic normal, homoscedastic skewed, and homoscedastic positively kurtosed, the latter outperforms the former one. Both methods were applied to a real data set analyzing the effect of bovine chromosome 6 on milk yield and composition by using a 125-cM map comprising 15 microsatellites and a granddaughter design counting 1158 Holstein-Friesian sires.
