Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease Linked To Oxygen-deprived Tissue

University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine

Summary:

Researchers have discovered how low-oxygen conditions can worsen chronic kidney disease. The key player is a protein called hypoxia-inducible-factor that, as its name suggests, is active when the kidney does not get enough oxygen, a condition known as hypoxia. This research has implications for new approaches to kidney dialysis.

Monsanto pressures Sri Lanka to reverse ban on herbicide believed to be causing widespread kidney disease

Sri Lanka bans glyphosate herbicide to avoid kidney disease risk


Sri Lanka, the large island south of India, is home to more than 20 million people who are now saying "no" to Monsanto's Roundup. Sri Lanka's president has suddenly issued a ban on glyphosate herbicide, as new studies suggest that the chemical is a main culprit behind a growing kidney disease epidemic arising in agricultural workers in Central America.

Compound Found In Purple Corn May Help to Develop Therapies Aimed at Type 2 Diabetes and Kidney Disease


Diabetic nephropathy is one of the most serious complications related to diabetes, often leading to end-stage kidney disease. Purple corn grown in Peru and Chile is a relative of blue corn, which is readily available in the U.S. The maize is rich in anthocyanins (also known as flavonoids), which are reported to have anti-diabetic properties.
