Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Patients with kidney injury are still associated with high morbidity and mortality rates. Furthermore, both acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease are associated with a risk of kidney failure. Despite the kidney having a remarkable capacity for regeneration after injury and may recover completely depending on the type of renal lesion, the options for clinical intervention are restricted to fluid management and extracorporeal kidney support. The development of novel therapies to prevent AKI, to improve renal regeneration capacity after AKI, and to preserve renal function—in both the short and long term—is urgently needed.

This Special Issue will include papers investigating the pathological mechanisms of renal inflammation and AKI, and diagnostics using new biomarkers. Furthermore, experimental in vitro and in vivo studies and clinical studies examining potential new approaches to attenuate kidney dysfunction are welcome.

Abstract
The relationship between Helicobacter pylori infection and/or gastric disorders and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has not been elucidated. We investigated the relationship between Helicobacter pylori and/or atrophic gastritis (AG) and chronic kidney disease. In total, 3560 participants (1127 men and 2433 women) were [...] Read more.
The relationship between Helicobacter pylori infection and/or gastric disorders and chronic kidney disease (CKD) has not been elucidated. We investigated the relationship between Helicobacter pylori and/or atrophic gastritis (AG) and chronic kidney disease. In total, 3560 participants (1127 men and 2433 women) were eligible for this cross-sectional study. We divided participants into four study groups: with/without Helicobacter pylori infection and with/without AG. The HP (+) AG (−) group demonstrated a significant association with CKD compared with the HP (−) AG (−) group (adjusted odds ratio, 1.443; 95% confidence interval, 1.047–1.989). In contrast, the HP (+) AG (+) group showed significantly lower adjusted odds of CKD than the HP (−) AG (−) group (adjusted odds ratio, 0.608; 95% confidence interval, 0.402–0.920). H. pylori infection without AG might be associated with CKD in these participants. Conversely, the HP (+) AG (+) group had lower odds of CKD. Uncovering an association between gastric and renal conditions could lead to development of new treatment strategies. Full article
