New paper from A2ALL investigates risk factors for early allograft dysfunction
After living donor liver transplantation, a recipient may experience complications with the transplanted organ soon after surgery, including Early Allograft Dysfunction (EAD). In a paper published in
, investigators sought to characterize EAD after living donor liver transplantation and to develop models to predict the risk of dysfunction.
NephCure Kidney Network to Participate in $4 Million Research Study of Stress Management Approaches
A team with the NephCure Kidney Network (NKN)
will take part in a $4 million research project to determine the optimal type and frequency of mindfulness-based treatment for managing stress.

Can changes in quality of life predict mortality in hemodialysis patients?
Measures of Health-Related Quality of Life (HR-QOL) have consistently demonstrated much lower quality of life among hemodialysis patients compared to the general population and to those with other chronic medical conditions. In a study published in
Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation
, investigators hypothesized that a decline in HR-QOL would be associated with increased risk of death.
New Website Helps Patients Make Choices about Dialysis Treatment
Patients diagnosed with kidney failure face many difficult decisions about their care. A new online decision tool helps patients and their families learn more about the factors that matter most to them.
Learn about this decision-making tool.
CKDopps: New study designed to examine the effects of chronic kidney disease care
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an increasing international problem, and minimizing the complications associated with advanced CKD and improving the transition to dialysis and transplantation represents a challenge. The CKD Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (CKDopps) is a new international prospective cohort study designed to meet this challenge by describing and evaluating variation in nephrologist-led CKD practices.
Psychosocial outcomes after living liver donation in A2ALL
Previous studies of living liver donors’ psychological and social outcomes have focused on short-term outcomes and rely largely on measures not specific to donation. In a recent paper published in a special issue on living donation in
, researchers examined long-term psychosocial outcomes of living donors, focusing on a more specific assessment of donors’ potential problems.
New article provides a global overview of end stage kidney disease
In a recent article in
, investigators present international cohort study data to highlight differences in hemodialysis practice that influence survival and the experiences of patients who rely on this therapy.
