End-Stage Renal Disease

End-Stage Renal Disease

End-Stage Renal Disease By Jason Klein BMB Seminar May 3, 1999 Outline I. Kidney: Basic structure and function II. Scope of the Problem

III. Causes of End-Stage Renal Disease IV. Metabolic consequences of End-Stage Renal Disease V. Treatment of End-Stage Renal Disease Kidney: Basic Functions Each kidney contains about 1 million nephrons which filter about 100 quarts of fluid every day

Juxtaglomerular apparatus: produces renin which raises angiotensin II and aldosterone levels Scope of the Problem End-stage renal disease is the result of years of chronic renal disease and is defined as the condition where the kidneys are only able to function at 5-10% of normal capacity Approximately 310,00 people in the U.S. are currently being treated for end-stage renal disease with 70,000 new cases reported each year

In 1995, the cost of treatment for these patients reached a total of 13.1 billion dollars Causes of End-Stage Renal Disease Over 50% of the cases of renal failure are either due to diabetes mellitus(30%) or hypertension(25%)

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Glomerulopathies(glomerulonephritis) Tubulointerstitial nephritis(drugs,heavy metals) Hereditary Diseases(Polycystic kidney disease)

Obstructive nephropathies Vascular diseases Progressive deterioration of glomeruli or renal tubules leads to decreased GFR and End-Stage Renal Disease Metabolic Consequences of ESRD 1. Uremia-fatigue, nausea, dizziness, coma, death 2. Acid/Base disorders-pH of blood is lowered(7.33-7.37)

3. Renal Osteodystrophy-bony pain, spontaneous fractures that heal slowly 4. Anemia Treatment of ESRD Hemodialysis-remove metabolic wastes by diffusion as blood is pumped through dialysis machine Fistula: Joined artery and vein that allows vascular access to patients blood 3-4 hr sessions, 3 times/week , $46,000/yr Dialysis(cont.)

Peritoneal Dialysis-peritoneal membrane is dialyzer, patients blood is cleaned within the body More liberating for the patient and better for the heart than hemodialysis $41,000/yr Transplantation 20,000 people currently living with kidney transplants-more cost effective and preferred over dialysis In the U.S. in 1996-12,198 kidneys were transplanted and 34,550 people were on the waiting list

Immunosuppressive drugs-cyclosporine, prednisone, azathioprine Tissue Engineering Harvest renal cells, expand them in culture, seed them on biodegradable polymers, implant scaffold into host Experiments in mice: Renal cells replicated and organized into nephron segments Goal: Produce 3-dimensional renal units that could eventually lead to full replacement of kidney function
