Journal of Parathyroid Disease; where nephrology meets endocrinology

It is our responsibility to provide an opportunity for the researchers who work in the area of parathyroid disease, either nephrologists or endocrinologists, to have their papers appraised and reviewed by the peers, and finally published with a desirable quality in the Journal of Parathyroid Disease (J Parathyroid Dis). This journal will be a good place to have your knowledge and experience in parathyroid disorders to be shared with all colleagues easily. The editorial team of the J Parathyr  Dis welcomes your collaboration and valuable comments.

World Kidney Day on March 12, 2015 Kidney Health for All

World Kidney Day will be celebrated on March 12, 2015. This time the theme is on Kidney Health for All.

The theme of World Hypertension Day 2014: Know your Blood Pressure

Firstly World Hypertension Day inaugurated in May 2005 and has become an annual event ever since. The aim of the World Hypertension Day is to promote public alertness of high blood pressure and to promote citizens of all countries to prevent and control this silent killer, the modern epidemic.World Hypertension Day was initiated firstly by the World Hypertension League.High blood pressure (hypertension) is considered as the silent killer since it has no apparent symptoms. Investigations show that the disease involves more than 1.5 billion people global, and around seven million people die every year from hypertension. 

Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral Bone Disorder (CKD-MBD)

The definition of CKD-MBD is different than the previously recognized as "renal osteodystrophy", and it refers to a systemic disorder of mineral and bone metabolism due to CKD manifested by either one or a combination of the following:
•Abnormalities of calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone (PTH), or vitamin D metabolism.
•Abnormalities in bone turnover, mineralization, volume, linear growth, or strenght.
•Vascular or other soft-tissue calcification.
The term "renal osteodystrophy" is now limited to an alteration of bone morphology in patients with CKD, and it is one measure of the skeletal component of the systemic disorder of CKD-MBD that is quantifiable by histomorphometry of bone biopsy.

 

World Kidney Day 2014:chronic kidney disease and aging

World Kidney Day (WKD) is a joint initiative of the International Society of Nephrology (ISN) and the International Federation of Kidney Foundations (IFKF).Seven years on from the first campaign, World Kidney Day (WKD) has turned into a global phenomenon. On March 13, 2014, medical professionals, government officials, the general public, celebrities and patients will take action locally.
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education
In 2014 World Kidney Day (WKD) will focus on chronic kidney disease and aging.The mission of WKD is to raise awareness so that everyone cares for their kidneys and, if appropriate, check to assess if they are at risk for kidney disease. Prevention of kidney disease, early detection, and subsequent kidney protection are critical aims for World Kidney Day.
Our research group is working on the below projects
1-Oxford classification in Iranian IgA nephropathy patients [Renal pathology unite of Dr. Baradaranlaboratory, Isfahan, Iran].
2- Significance of C4d deposits in IgA nephropathy [Renal pathology unite of Dr. Baradaran laboratory, Isfahan, Iran].
3-Renal tubular cell protection by herbal anti-oxidants [Medical Plants Research Center; Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences, Shahrekord, Iran]

A suggested classification for antiphospholipid syndrome-associated nephropathy, should be simple and practical. However, the suggestion of a new classification for antiphospholipid syndrome-associated nephropathy will involve a magnificent amount of work and will necessitate a working group, hence, more studies on this topic is suggested.

Renal pathologists and nephrologists should be aware of the morphologic characteristics of APS-nephropathy when they reviewbiopsies of lupus nephropathy patients, especially those with positive antiphospholipid antibodies.

Mubarak M, Nasri H.What nephrolopathologists needto know about antiphospholipid syndrome-associated nephropathy: Is it time for formulating a classification for renal morphologic lesions? J Nephropathology. 2014; 3(1): 4-8.
Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education
There is sufficient epidemiological, clinical and histopathological evidence to show that antiphospholipid syndrome-associated nephropathy is a distinctive lesion caused by antiphospholipid antibodies in patients with different forms of antiphospholipid syndrome. It is now time to devise a classification for an accurate diagnosis and prognostication of the disease.
