Abstract:The aim of the study was to determine the clinical features and molecular genetic patterns of patients with Fabry disease (FD) to optimize the diagnostic stepwise. Object and methods. The comparison of clinical features was performed and the activity of lysosomal enzyme a–galactosidase A in the peripheral blood leukocyte homogenate was studied in 120 male with the neuropathic pain or acroparesthesia who contacted the Center of Orphan Diseases of NSCH “Ohmatdyt” in years 2002–2016. The cascade family screening (in 8 people) at low enzyme levels and molecular genetic analysis for the presence of mutations in the GLA gene were performed. Results. The activity of –galactosidase A was decreased (range 0.5–12.6 nM/mg/h with median 2.0 nM/mg/h) in nine cases (7.5%). All these patients had additional clinical signs (angiokeratoma, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, coarse facial features, and compromised family tree). The diagnosis of FD were confirmed by the molecular genetic analysis in the GLA gene; there were identified two new mutations (p.739 740delAA and C.945 946delinsTTGA). The other mutations in 6 out of 8 examined families were revealed by the screening of the first kinship degree female relatives, but the activity of –galactosidase A in leukocytes was only reduced in 4 of them. Conclusion. The multisystem lesions and the difference in the clinical signs of FD complicate the timely formulation of diagnosis. Selective screening among patients with renal insufficiency, cardiac pathology, and ischemic stroke in the anamnesis increases the possibility of FD diagnosis. Cascade family screening of FD patients relatives is highly effective in identification new patients with non–classical form of FD. Inclusion in the selective group of persons with chronic diseases, compromised pedigree, acroparesthesia and additional FD probable clinical signs reduces the range ofpatients for further high–cost testing and optimizes the diagnosis of FD.

Abstract:The pro- and antiinflammatory cytokines participate in antiinfective immunity, that is why it is necessary study their peculiarities in determination of the role in the immunopathogenesis of pyelonephritis, including complications of diabetes mellitus (DM). The purpose of the work is to study the immune status and levels of pro- and antiinflammatory blood cytokines in the patients with chronic pyelonephritis (CPN), to determine the peculiarities in cases of DM. Materials and methods. The immuno-enzymic method ELISA and the corresponding test-systems were used to study the levels of cytokines in blood and also standard immunity indices. Results. The analysis showed the significant increase in levels of all studied pro- (TNF-б, MCP-1, IL-17, -23) and antiinflammatory (IL-4, TGF-в) cytokines in all patients with CPN and in every group – with (2) and without DM (3). In 3 gr. (CPN+DM) the CD4+/CD8+ are significantly lower, while in IgM, МСР-1 and TNF-б levels – higher than in the 1 gr. (DM without CPN), and IL-4 , NGAL – than in 2 gr. (CPN without DM). Conclusion. The high level of cytokines (TNF-б, MCP-1 and IL-23) in blood confirms their important role in CPN+DM and CPN without DM. In patients with CPN+DM marked reduction in regulatory index (CD4+/CD8+) and higher levels of proinflammatory cytokines (TNF-б, MCP-1). Our investigation showed that NGAL level in serum was increased more significantly in 3 gr.; this fact may confirm that renal disfunction was more severe in patients with CPN+DM.

Abstract:Summary. Introduction. The aim of the work is the determination of functioning of the single kidney (SK) by complex scintigraphic research with using nephrotrophic radiopharmaceuticals (NRP) of different mechanisms of elimination and the detection of its diagnostic significance. Materials and methods. 90 children (range 5-16 years) with SK were examined: dynamic (DRSG) and static (SRSG) scintigraphy with angiography was made them. 150 scintigraphic examinations with different NRP were made: 99mTc-DTPA (diethyleneaminopentacetate) – 51, 99mTc – PP (pyrophosphate) – 40,99mTc – DMSA (dymethylenesuccinateacetate) – 34, 99mTc MAG3 (mer- captoacetyle-3-glycine) – 15, 99mTc-EC (ethylenedicysteine) – 10. Time options of renal blood flow and transport of NRP, SGF, ERP were determined. Control group consists of15 children. Results.The main scintigraphic features ofSK are: presence of single kidney on scintigraphic image; slowdown of time options of renal haemodynamic, increasing of SGF and ERP of SK on 50-60 %; decreasing of standard parameters SGF and ERP on 40-50%. The slowdown of SK excretion ability is associated with retention NRP in parenchyma. Proportions of SK increase on 2-3 sm average, and size of scintigraphic picture – on 40%. The main type of renographic curve in children with SK is parenchymatose, and it is found in 50% ofpatients. The accumulation and distribution of NRP in SK in 73,3 % is quite uniform. Conclisions. Thus, SK in children functions in strain way of all compensation mechanisms that provide blood purification from products of vital functions, which shows the slowdown of main options of the SKfunctioning.

Abstract:The aim of the study was to examine the osmoregulatory state of renal function in patients with type 2 diabetes in a water - salt load with 0,5% NaCl in the amount of 0.5% of body weight. Materials and methods. The study involved 56patients with insulin - dependent diabetic nephropathy,24 men (42.9%) and 32 women (57.1%), aged from 38 to 81 years. The osmolality was measured by freezing point depression on osmomat 030 - D (USA). Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) was calculated by the formula GFR - EPI with subsequent determination of renal functional reserve. Results. It demonstrated that renal osmoregulatory function provides effective regulation of osmotic homeostasis even in a reduced amount of nephrons, but as the glomerular filtration rate decreses to 30 ml/min, the excretion of osmotically active substances gradually decrease too. Conclusion. Osmoregulatory disturbances in the renal function in patients with 2 types diabetes depend both on the reduction in GFR, - and on changes in the functional capacity of nephron's tubules.

Abstract:Peritonealfibrosis (PF) is a common morphological change in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. With the progression of PF, peritoneal membrane function is impaired, which leads to ultrafiltration failure. Results of studies in recent years show the crucial role of high production monocytic chemoattractant protein -1 (MCP-1) of peritoneal fibrosis in PD-patients. The aim was to determine intraperitoneally production ofIL-10 and MCP-1 and its relationship with clinical and laboratory parameters of adequacy of dialysis. Patients and methods. A prospective observational study involved 18patients with CKD stage Vwith non-diabetic nephropathy, were treated with continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (PAPD). The limits of the normal range (reference range) were obtained from the survey results of 10 conditionally healthy individuals. ELISA method in serum and peritoneal dialysis effluent (PDE) investigated levels ofIL-10 and MSP-1. PAPD adequacy indicators evaluated by determining the concentration of urea and creatinine in plasma, urine and dialysate, calculated weekly creatinine clearance (CrCl), dialysis (Ш/ Vd), renal (Ш / Vr) and шА weekly urea clearance (Kt/ V). [email protected] Results. In all of the PD-patients compared to healthy donors conventionally, there was a significant increase in concentration of the cytokines. We determined the positive regression relationship between the concentration of MCP-1 and IL-10 in PDE and the level of total weekly (Kt / V) and renal (Kt / Vr). Conclusions. We determined the regression dependence, which allowed to identify clinical parameters that are most closely (statistically significant) related to intraperitoneal production of MCP-1 and IL-10.

Abstract:Antibiotic therapy and long-term antibiotic prophylaxis affect the normal flora of the gastrointestinal tract in the patients with recurrent pyelonephritis. It may disturb the balance in oxalate-degrading bacteria in colon and induce hyperoxaluria. The aim of this study was to investigate the level of colon oxalate-degrading bacteria colonization inpatients with recurrentpyelonephritis and its association with administration ofantibiotics. Patients and methods. The pilot observational cross-sectional study, involving 12 patients with uncomplicated recurrent pyelonephritis, non-stone formers. Oxalate-degrading bacteria in feces were identified by bacteriological culture method in the sodium oxalate reach medium. Results. Oxalate-degrading bacteria were detected in feces of 6 (50%) surveyed patients. The number of oxalatedegrading bacteria ranged from 2,0 to 7,0 lg CFU/g in feces and depended on the time after the last administration of antibiotics (F = 4,6; P = 0.05). The levels of oxalate-degrading bacteria colonization and urinary oxalate excretion in surveyed women had a moderate inverse correlation (p =-0,6;P = 0.03). Conclusions. The significantly higher urinary oxalate excretion in women non stone-formers with recurrent pyelonephritis may be associated with the application of antibiotics and a subsequent decolonization of oxalate-degrading bfcteria: must befurther confirmed in ranaomizea study.

Abstract:The aim of study was to investigate the possibility of using the detection of urine renospecific enzymes activity in children with nephrotic syndrome (NS) as biomarkers of unfavorable disease course prognosis. Materials and methods. The operating characteristics of urine activity values of N-аcethyl- β-D-glucosaminidase (NAG) and β-galactosidase (β-Gal) were estimated in 209 nephrotic children depending on disease course. Results. The high activity of NAG and β-Gal confirms the active participation of renal tubules in pathological process in NS. Likelihood of NS progression increased while saving NAG activity >50 Units and β-Gal >30 Units in 8-10 weeks of therapy and at 1.5-3 years of follow-up after treatment withdrawal; increasing of enzymes levels in 6-9 months on tapering treatment period (NAG >100 Units, β-Gal >60 Units). Changing the enzymes activity in the disease active stage before treatment does not have the prognostic defense. The enzymuric fragment of multimarker parallel cascade system for prediction unfavorable NS course has been created. Conclusion. Urine renospecific enzymes activity (NAG and β-Gal) should be used as markers of the progression in NS children with the optimal terms studies and range parameters as summarized in the proposed prediction system.

Abstract:This article is a review of the literature. Peritoneal dialysis (PD) was the first method of dialysis renal replacement therapy (DRRT), used for the treatment of patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). PD is able to correct metabolic, electrolyte, acid-alkali disorders and hypervolemia in patients with AKI. Continuous equilibration PD and continuous flow PD can provide of dialysis dose compared with extracorporeal methods of DRRT. However, PD is considered less effective than hemodialysis. In this regard, PD has used in patients with AKI, especially those who are hemodynamically unstable or at risk of bleeding because of severe coagulation abnormalities, in infants and children with AKI, and in patients with circulatory failure.

Abstract:Изучение иммунного механизма поражения почек на модели нефрита Хеймана (НХ), вызывающего изменения сосудов почечных клубочков, их морфологических и морфометрических показателей, представляют значительный интерес Цель работы: изучить влияние введения криоэкстракта аллогенной плаценты (КЭП) на функциональные и морфологические показатели почек при экспериментальном НХ. Материал и методы. Крысы-самцы 4-х месячного возраста были разделены на 3 группы: I – интактные; 2 – животные с моделью НХ; 3 – животные с моделью НХ, которым на 28 день после иммунизации 3 раза за неделю внутримышечно вводили КЭП. Животных 2-й и 3-й групп выводили из эксперимента на 45 и 60 сутки. Исследованы биохимические, функциональные и морфологические показатели почек на всех стадиях развития НХ и после введения КЭП. Результаты и их обсуждение. У животных 2 и 3 группы на 28-е сутки возрастало количество циркулирующих иммунных комплексов (ЦИК) в крови и иммунных депозитов на базальных мембранах клубочков, что сопровождалось нарушением их структуры и выделительной функции почек. Выявлены морфометрические различия в размерах клубочков в динамике НХ. Через 60 суток в ткани почек экспериментальных животных наблюдались признаки фокального мезангиального пролиферативного гломерулонефрита как при введении КЭП, так и без него. При введении КЭП отложения депозитов иммунных комплексов не обнаруживалось. Выводы: При НХ на 28 сутки отмечено возрастание ЦИК в крови, отложение депозитов иммунных комплексов на базальных мембранах капилляров клубочков, сужение их просвета и пролиферация мезангиоцитов, что сопровождалось нарушением выделительной функции...

Abstract:The aim of our study was to investigate the oxidative stress intensity depending on the content of Lactobacillus spp. in the colon of patients with recurrent pyelonephritis. Material and methods. The observational study involved 60 women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage I-II: uncomplicated pyelonephritis, aged 39.5 ± 3.2 years. According to the quantitative content ofLactobacillus spp. in the patients’ intestine, the women were allocated into two groups: the first group of the patients (n = 34) had a deficit ofLactobacillus spp. in the intestine, and the second one (n = 26) had a normal content of Lactobacillus spp. Along with the standard diagnostic methods, we defined the content of malondialdehyde levels in the serum (MDAs) and erythrocytes (MDAe) spectrophotometrically as an indicator of lipid peroxidation. Such parameters as the concentration of ceruloplasmin (CP), transferrin (TR) and sulfhydryl groups (SH-groups) in the blood and total peroxidase activity (TPA) in erythrocyte were studied as the indicators of antioxidant system. In addition, we calculated of oxidative stress index (OSI). Results. The analysis of lipid peroxidation defined a significant increase of MDA level in the serum (p = 0.008) and urine (p = 0.003) ofpatients with deficit of intestine lactobacillus spp. Moreover, in the patients ofGroup II we observed the high level of serum OSI (p = 0.03). By contrast, the TPA level was significantly reduced (p = 0.02). Conclusions. The results of our work confirm the experimental studies data, which demonstrate the leading role of gut indigenous microbiota in the development of oxidative stress.

Abstract:The Aim of our study was to determine the intra- and interobserver variation of the automated quantitative evaluation if cortical interstitial fibrosis performed on kidney biopsy samples stained with Sirius red compared to conventional approaches. Materials and methods. The range of fibrosis was evaluated on 15 renal biopsies obtained from adult patients with minimal change nephropathy, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and membranous nephropathy. Different methods of fibrosis measurement were used: the automated quantification of Sirius red stained areas with and without polarization, the computerized quantification of the fibrotic interstitium on trichrome-stained samples and the visual assessment offibrotic tissues using quantitative and semiquantitative approaches on trkhrome and PAMS-stained slides. The intra- and interobserver variation of these methods was performed. Results. The quantitative evaluation of interstitial fibrosis with Sirius red stain under both polarized and unpolarized light demonstrated nearly perfect inter- and intraobserver reproducibility (ICC=0,85-0,99). Whereas, visual methods had relatively high variance between observations (ICC=0,48-0,66). Conclusions. The automated quantification of cortical interstitial fibrosis as performed on renal biopsy samples stained with Sirius red has been shown to be a highly accurate approach that could be used as a routine method of the kidney biopsy evaluation.

Abstract:Introduction. Cytokines play the corresponding role in the inflammatory processes and the development of endothelial dysfunction and therefore take an important place in the problem of systemic chronic inflammation (SCI) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), stage V, who are treated with methods of the renal replacement therapy (RRT). Aim of the work was to determine the features ofpro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines, VEGF in patients with CKD stage V D, depending on the method of RRT (HD, HDF, PD). Materials and methods. There were examined 56 patients with CKD, st. V treated with methods of RRT: gr.1 received hemodialysis (HD) (15 p), gr. 2 - hemodiafiltration (HDF) (28 p) and gr. 3 – peritoneal dialysis (PD) (13p). The cytokines levels (IL-6, -8, -10, -18, TNF-a, VEGF) were determined in blood serum by means of ELIZA. Results. The CKD, st. V patients treated with RRT showed really increased levels of pro-inflammatory blood cytokines (TNF-a, IL-8, IL-18) (p < 0.001) and VEGF as important factor of endothelial dysfunction, in dependence on RRT the groups 1-3 did not differ (p > 0.05). In comparison with healthy donors, in patients of gr. 3 the level of antiinflammatory IL-10 was the highest (p < 0.001) in comparison with gr.1 (p = 0.080) andgr.2 (p = 0,043) (corresponding HD and HDF), and the ratio IL-18/IL-10 was really more low in comparison with both other groups (p = 0.035). Conclusion. The high level of serum cytokines confirms the SCI availability in patients with CKD,st.V; the patients treated with PD showed the lower degree of inflammatory reactions by the data of balance between pro/anti-inflammatory immunity mediators.

Abstract:Introduction. Recent studies suggest that visfatin participates in pathogenesis of vascular diabetic complications, in particular diabetic nephropathy (DN). The aim of the present research - definition of visfatin level in peripheral blood of type 2 diabetic patients taking to account renal function disturbances and body mass index (BMI). Materials and methods. 94 type 2 diabetic patients with different stages of DN and 10 healthy subjects (control group) were observed. Visfatin concentration in blood plasma was determined using immunoassay kit. Results. An essential increase of visfatin level in blood plasma took place already in initial stages of the DN. Progressing of the disease was accompanied by more expressed growth of visfatin concentration. In patients with high BMI substantial increase of visfatin level when compared with those with normal IMT was determined. We established strong correlations between visfatin concentrations, urinary albumin levels and blood creatinine concentrations and negative correlations with glomerular filtration rate. Conclusions: Our findings testify that visfatin level displays a functional kidney state and may be used as addition to traditional methods of patients examination.

Abstract:The aim of the study is to determine the prevalence of plasmid-mediated resistance genes among uro- pathogens from hospitalized patients with chronic pyelonephritis. Methods. A cross-sectional study of 105patients with chronic pyelonephritis and different stage of chronic kidney disease, was carried. Screening for the presence ofplasmid-mediated genes was performed by polymerase chain reaction. Determining the risk factors was performed by analysis of prevalence Odd-ratio. Results. The prevalence of plasmid-mediated resistance mechanisms among uropathogens is 36.7%, mainly due to extended-spectrum p-lactamase (25%). The main factors related with appearance of plasmid-mediated resistance genes were age range above 55 years (OR 3.05), hypertension (OR 2.57), Chronic Kidney Disease stage ІІІ (OR 2,03) and V (OR 1,1), in-patient treatment history (OR 2.02), duration of CP more than 10 years (OR 1,97), history of using antibiotics last year (OR 1,41). Conclusion. Isolation and detection of plasmid-mediated resistance mechanisms among urinary strains are essential for the selection of the most effective antibiotic for the empiric treatment.

Abstract:Background and objective. Knowledge of local antimicrobial resistance pattern is very important for evidence-based empirical antibiotic prescribing. The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence and the antimicrobial resistance pattern of the main bacteria responsible for uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) in Kyiv region (Ukraine), throughout a ten year period, in order to establish an appropriate empirical therapy. Materials and methods. A retrospective analysis of the etiological spectrum and antimicrobial resistance of uropathogens in urine samples isolated over the 10-year period, 2005 to 2015, in a single center was performed. Results. In total 380positive urine samples processed at our laboratory of which 193/380 (51 %) had E. coli as the infecting organism. Although E. coli was, as usual, the most common pathogen implicated in UTI, it were observed increasing the share of Enterococcus spp. - 82/380 (21.6%). Ampicillin and trimethoprim were the least-active agents against E. coli with resistance rates of 75% and 70%, respectively. Significant trends of increasing resistance over the 10-year period were identified for trimethoprim, fluoroquinolones ІІ and III generations, penicillins, and carbapenems. Nitrofuran derivative remains a reasonable empirical antibiotic choice in this community with a 10-year resistance rate of 8.3 %. Was determined that recurrent UTI is an independent risk factor for bacterial multidrug-resistance. Conclusions. Over the last 10 years, the proportions of fluoroquinolones resistant E. coli and multidrug-resistant bacteria have significantly increased. The fluoroquinolones shall not be used in the empirical treatment of uncomplicated UTI in Kyiv region patients. For the empirical treatment of uncomplicated UTI in women should be used nitrofuran derivative (furazydyn K). If required of parenteral administration of antibiotics should be used cephalosporins IVgeneration. This data will enable evidence-based empirical prescribing which will ensure more effective treatment and lessen the emergence of resistant uropathogens in the community.

Abstract:Renal damage in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most frequent and serious among other systemic manifestations and holds a special place in connection with a significant impact on prognosis and approaches to therapy. Today we know that one of the main possible factors of occurrence and development of RA are external trigger factors, among which the most important factor are infectious, and its pathogenic effect on the body can be done in different ways. Based on the latest scientific evidence on the importance of infectious trigger factors in the manifestation of RA, chronic pyelonephritis among these triggers is one of the leaders. Great interest is also the probability of pyelonephritis manifestation while presence of RA. The aim: to identify predictors ofpyelonephritis manifestation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Materials and methods. The authors examined 31 patients with RA with presence of chronic pyelonephritis (CP), 31 patients with RA without presence of CP and 20 healthy individuals. Was used clustering and classification methods of Data Mining on indicators of lipid peroxidation of blood and urine, р2–microglobulin blood and urine, immune factors, that defined progressive CKD on the results of our previous studies (IL–1p,IL–10, TGF–р). Results. Found that patients with diagnosed RA only, mainly are included in the cluster «1» (18patients). Some of them (3 persons) classified as belonging to the cluster «2». Thus, these individuals should have two signs of disease, RA and CP, despite the fact that they have only diagnosed RA. It means that these patients are at risk of developing CP. This analysis gives grounds to consider that RA may be signs of a factor that causes manifestation of CP. It is proved that the main factor that characterizes the individuals belonging to the cluster of healthy is 2– microglobulin in the urine with the same threshold value, but factor in determining membership of a type of disease is a factor MDA of urine. Conclusion. The main predictors of pyelonephritis manifestation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis were 2– microglobulin and MDA in urine and TGF– 1 in blood. A new method of diagnosing ofprognostic factors of CP manifestation in patients with RA which is based on cluster and classification analysis makes it possible to establish the interrelation between a diagnosis of RA and caused by it manifestation of CP.

Abstract:The aim of the study was to estimate the nutritional status of patients with chronic kidney disease who are treated by CAPD, the prevalence of its disorders according to functional methods. To study the relationship between nutritional status and hydration. Materials and Methods: During the observational one-stage study, 105 patients with CKD 5D stage who were treated by CAPD were included. To assess the NS, serum albumin and body mass index were determined, functional methods were used, namely, SGA and dietary diary analysis. The status of hydration was assessed by clinical examination and bioimpedance analysis. The study was carried out in two stages. At the first, the definition of laboratory and functional indicators of the National Assembly, assessment of the balance of water sectors was carried out. At the second stage, for further analysis, the patients were divided into four groups according to the condition of the NS, determined on the basis of the SGA: the first group (n = 54) consisted of patients without disturbance of nutrition, the second (n = 27) with mild disruption of nutrition, the third (n = 13) — with an average degree, and the fourth (n = 11) - with a severe degree of malnutrition. Results: Weight loss and subcutaneous fat mass for the past 6 months were detected in 43.8% and 37.14% of patients, respectively. Gastrointestinal disorders and loss of muscle mass were detected in 58.1% and 74.3% of patients, respectively. According to the SGA, nutritional disorders were detected in 51 (48.6%) patients. An easy degree of malnutrition was diagnosed in 25.71% of patients, medium and severe — in 12.38% and 10.48% of patients, respectively. For compare of the data obtained from the survey on the composition of water sectors with reference values allows one to assert the presence of hyperhydration in the examined population. A statistically significant difference is achieved by the volume of extracellular fluid, the volume of circulating blood and plasma. These parameters significantly increase depending on the degree of disturbance of the NS (p
