Primary hyperoxaluria Type 1: indications for screening and guidance for diagnosis and treatment
Primary hyperoxaluria Type 1 is a rare autosomal recessive inborn error of glyoxylate metabolism, caused by a deficiency of the liver-specific enzyme alanine:glyoxylate aminotransferase.
Genetics of Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease and Its Differential Diagnoses
Autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) is a hepatorenal fibrocystic disorder that is characterized by enlarged kidneys with progressive loss of renal function and biliary duct dilatation and congenital hepatic fibrosis that leads to portal hypertension in some patients.
Spinal muscular atrophy: molecular genetics and diagnostics.
Spinal muscular atrophy is one of the most common autosomal recessive diseases, affecting approximately one in 10,000 live births and with a carrier frequency of approximately one in 50. Spinal muscular atrophy is caused by a deficiency...
Transplantation for Primary Hyperoxaluria Type 1: Designing New Strategies in the Era of Promising Therapeutic Perspectives
Primary hyperoxaluria type 1 (PH1) is an autosomal recessive disease caused by the functional defect of alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase that results in the overproduction of oxalate. It can be devastating especially for kidneys, leading to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) during the first 2 to 3 decades of life in most patients.
A Study to See if Tolvaptan Can Delay Dialysis in Infants and Children Who at Enrollment Are 28 Days to Less Than 12 Weeks Old With Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD)
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effect of tolvaptan on the need for renal replacement therapy in pediatric subjects with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD)
A Study to See if Tolvaptan is Safe in Infants and Children Who at Enrollment Are 28 Days to Less Than 18 Years Old With Autosomal Recessive Polycystic Kidney Disease (ARPKD)
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the safety of tolvaptan in pediatric subjects with autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD)
An update on primary hyperoxaluria
The autosomal recessive inherited primary hyperoxalurias types I, II and III are caused by defects in glyoxylate metabolism that lead to the endogenous overproduction of oxalate. Type III primary hyperoxaluria was first described in 2010 and further types are likely to exist.
Primary Hyperoxaluria-Imaging of Renal Oxalosis
Primary Hyperoxaluria is a rare autosomal recessive hereditary disorder due to deficient alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase enzyme with defective glyoxylate metabolism leading to excessive oxalate production and deposition into the tissues (oxalosis).
