    ABSTRACT: Recurrent glomerulonephritis is an important cause of kidney allograft failure. The effect of immunosuppression on recurrent IgA Nephropathy (IgAN) is unclear. We analyzed the impact of steroids and other immunosuppression on the risk of recurrent IgAN post-kidney transplantation. Between June, 1989 and November, 2008, 3311 kidney transplants were performed at our center. IgAN was the primary disease in 124 patients; of these, 75 (60.5%) patients received steroid-based immunosuppression (15 undergoing late steroid withdrawal), and 49 (39.5%) were maintained on steroid-free immunosuppression. Recurrent-IgAN was diagnosed in 27 out of 124 (22%) patients in clinically indicated kidney allograft biopsies over a median follow-up of 6.86 ± 5.4 years. On cox proportional hazards model multivariate analysis, the hazard risk (HR) of IgAN recurrence was significantly higher in patients managed with steroid-free (HR 8.59: 3.03, 24.38, p<0.001) and sirolimus-based (HR=3.00:1.16, 7.75, p=0.024) immunosuppression without anti-lymphocyte globulin induction (HR= 4.5: 1.77, 11.73, P= 0.002). Mycophenolate use was associated with a lower risk (HR=0.42: 0.19, 0.95, p=0.036) whereas cyclosporine did not have a significant impact on the risk of IgAN recurrence (p=0.61). These results warrant future prospective studies regarding the role of steroids and other immunosuppression drugs in reducing recurrence of IgAN and other glomerulonephritis post-transplant.

    ABSTRACT: We utilized mouse models to elucidate the immunologic mechanisms of functional graft loss during mixed antibody-mediated rejection of renal allografts (mixed AMR), in which humoral and cellular responses to the graft occur concomitantly. Although the majority of T cells in the graft at the time of rejection were CD8 T cells with only a minor population of CD4 T cells, depletion of CD4 but not CD8 cells prevented acute graft loss during mixed AMR. CD4 depletion eliminated antidonor alloantibodies and conferred protection from destruction of renal allografts. ELISPOT revealed that CD4 T effectors responded to donor alloantigens by both the direct and indirect pathways of allorecognition. In transfer studies, CD4 T effectors primed to donor alloantigens were highly effective at promoting acute graft dysfunction, and exhibited the attributes of effector T cells. Laser capture microdissection and confirmatory immunostaining studies revealed that CD4 T cells infiltrating the graft produced effector molecules with graft destructive potential. Bioluminescent imaging confirmed that CD4 T effectors traffic to the graft site in immune replete hosts. These data document that host CD4 T cells can promote acute dysfunction of renal allografts by directly mediating graft injury in addition to facilitating antidonor alloantibody responses.

    ABSTRACT: Acute allograft rejection after HLA desensitization is common early post-transplant but the sequence of histopathologic changes leading to graft dysfunction has not been well defined. We evaluated the early pathogenesis and sequence of antibody-mediated graft damage of 35 desensitized living donor kidney recipients by studying the course of biopsies taken in the very early post-transplant period (<1 month). A total of 14 of the 35 patients met criteria for acute antibody-mediated rejection (AMR). In these patients, the chronologic sequence of pathologic changes was C4d peritubular capillary deposition, acute tubular injury, and peritubular capillaritis, followed by glomerulitis and interstitial inflammation. Classic AMR lesions occurred early, followed by mononuclear cellular infiltration, which comprised CD4 and CD8 T cells and monocytes. Development of graft dysfunction in most patients occurred concurrently with the emergence of graft cellular infiltration, rather than at the earlier time of antibody deposition as detected via C4d deposition. These data provide novel insight into the sequence of pathologic changes in patients with AMR post-transplant after HLA desensitization.

    ABSTRACT: We previously reported that patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) receiving warfarin therapy and whose international normalized ratio increases to >3.0 may develop acute kidney injury (AKI) as a result of glomerular hemorrhage and formation of obstructive red blood cell (RBC) casts. We named this condition warfarin-related nephropathy (WRN). We also previously reported that acute excessive anticoagulation with brodifacoum (superwarfarin) induces AKI in 5/6 nephrectomy (5/6NE) rats. Limitations of the brodifacoum model precluded a careful assessment of dose-response relationships. Warfarin treatment was used in 5/6NE. Herein we report that warfarin treatment of 5/6NE rats resulted in a dose-dependent increase in serum creatinine (SC). The increase in SC following warfarin treatment was greater at 3 and 19 weeks after the ablative surgery, than that observed 8 weeks after the ablative surgery. The SC increase was correlated with the prothrombin time increase. Morphologically, 5/6NE, but not control rats, had acute tubular injury with RBC and RBC casts in the tubules. Treatment with vitamin K prevented SC increase and morphologic changes in the kidney associated with warfarin treatment. A single episode of WRN did not affect the progression of CKD in 5/6NE. (1) The 5/6NE model of CKD is an appropriate animal model to study the pathogenesis of WRN. (2) The pharmacokinetics of warfarin is better suited to the study of WRN than that of brodifacoum. (3) The more advanced stages of 5/6NE are more susceptible to WRN than the earlier stages. (4) Vitamin K treatment prevents WRN.

    ABSTRACT: Lupus nephritis is characterized by glomerular and extraglomerular immune complex deposition in the kidney. It is unclear whether the same circulating immune complexes deposit in the glomeruli and in extraglomerular structures, or whether they are pathogenetically different. Differences in the IgG subclass composition may point towards different pathways in the formation of glomerular and extraglomerular immune complexes. Therefore we investigated IgG subclass distribution in the immune complex deposits at these anatomic sites. A total of 84 biopsies diagnosed as lupus nephritis and classified according to the International Society of Nephrology/Renal Pathology Society (ISN/RPS) 2003 classification, were examined by direct immunofluorescence staining for IgG subclasses. The IgG subclass composition in the glomerular, tubular basement membrane (TBM) and vascular wall deposits was compared. We also correlated the presence/absence of interstitial inflammation and IgG subclasses in the TBM and vascular deposits. Lastly, we looked for correlation between staining for IgG subclasses and complement C1q and C3 staining. IgG staining was present in the TBM in 52/84 biopsies, and in the vascular walls in 40/84 biopsies. IgG subclass distribution was discrepant between glomerular and TBM deposits in 36/52 biopsies, and between glomerular and vascular deposits in 27/40 biopsies. Interstitial inflammation did not correlate with the presence of IgG staining or distribution of IgG subclasses in the TBM. Interstitial inflammation was more common in biopsies of African-American patients than Caucasian patients. The IgG subclass staining correlated with C1q staining in all the three compartments. The antibody composition of the glomerular and extraglomerular immune complex deposits appear to differ from each other. They may not represent the same preformed immune complexes from the circulation. It is likely that their pathogenesis and site of formation are different.

    ABSTRACT: The most common cause of thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) in renal allografts is thought to be calcineurin inhibitor toxicity. Antibody-mediated rejection (AMR) can also cause TMA, but its true impact on de novo TMA is unknown. In a retrospective review of renal allograft biopsies from January 2003 to December 2008 at our institution, we determined the prevalence of TMA in patients with C4d positive (n = 243) and C4d negative (n = 715) biopsies. Over 90% of patients received cyclosporine in both groups. De novo TMA was seen in 59 (6.1%) patients; most of them (55%) with C4d positive biopsy. Among patients with C4d positive biopsies, 13.6% had TMA, as compared to only 3.6% patients with C4d negative biopsies (p < 0.0001). Incidence of graft loss between C4d positive and C4d negative TMA groups was not significantly different, but 70% of patients with C4d positive TMA who received plasmapheresis had slightly lower graft loss rate. In biopsies with AMR-associated TMA, glomerulitis and peritubular capillaritis were significantly more prominent. AMR is the most common cause of TMA in renal allografts in our patient population. It is important to recognize AMR-related TMA because plasmapheresis treatment may be beneficial.

    ABSTRACT: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) reactivation is a well-described complication of solid organ transplantation. These studies were performed to (1) determine if cardiac allograft transplantation of latently infected recipients results in reactivation of CMV and (2) determine what impact CMV might have on development of graft acceptance/tolerance. BALB/c cardiac allografts were transplanted into C57BL/6 mice with/without latent murine CMV (MCMV). Recipients were treated with gallium nitrate induction and monitored for graft survival, viral immunity and donor reactive DTH responses. Latently infected allograft recipients had approximately 80% graft loss by 100 days after transplant, compared with approximately 8% graft loss in naïve recipients. PCR evaluation demonstrated that MCMV was transmitted to cardiac grafts in all latently infected recipients, and 4/8 allografts had active viral transcription compared to 0/6 isografts. Latently infected allograft recipients showed intragraft IFN-alpha expression consistent with MCMV reactivation, but MCMV did not appear to negatively influence regulatory gene expression. Infected allograft recipients had disruption of splenocyte DTH regulation, but recipient splenocytes remained unresponsive to donor antigen even after allograft losses. These data suggest that transplantation in an environment of latent CMV infection may reactivate virus, and that intragraft responses disrupt development of allograft acceptance.

    ABSTRACT: Fibrillary glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a rare but progressive glomerular disease usually with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) developing within months or few years following the diagnosis. Little is known about the outcome of renal transplantation in patients with ESRD due to FGN. We report four patients with FGN who received renal allografts. Two patients developed recurrent FGN in their grafts. One patient was diagnosed to have recurrent FGN 9 years post-transplant, and lost his graft 4 years thereafter. Another patient had recurrent disease 2 years post-transplant but has stable graft function after 7 years. One patient died with normal renal allograft function 7 years following transplantation. The fourth patient has chronic transplant nephropathy 34 months post-transplant without evidence of recurrent FGN. A literature review revealed 10 additional patients who received 11 renal allografts due to ESRD caused by FGN. Four of these 10 patients had biopsy-proven recurrence (one patient in two subsequent grafts), but this caused graft loss only in 2 patients 56 months and 7 years post-transplant, respectively. The earliest recurrence was diagnosed 2 years post-transplant. We conclude that although the recurrence rate of FGN in renal transplants is high (around 50%), the recurrent disease has a relatively benign course and prolonged graft survival is possible.

    ABSTRACT: In a previous study, utilizing antibodies to proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), we determined the proliferation index (PI) (percentage of PCNA-positive cells) of intrinsic renal cell populations in the normal adult and pediatric kidney. We have found that the PI in both adult and pediatric kidneys was very low (below 0.5 in all examined cell populations). In our present study, we investigated cell proliferation in the developing human kidney with an antibody to PCNA. Histologically normal kidneys were collected from 25 fetuses (spontaneous abortions and stillborns) ranging from 10 wk of gestation to term. Immature mesenchyme (blastema), immature early tubules, ampulla of ureteric bud, proximal tubules, Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP)-positive tubules, distal tubules, collecting ducts, and glomeruli were evaluated separately. The PI for each cell population was calculated. The PI of immature early tubules remains high (33-43) throughout embryonic life. The PI of blastemal cells is initially similarly high, but gradually decreases starting from the second trimester. The PI of THP-positive tubules, distal tubules, collecting ducts, and glomeruli starts out relatively high (5.9, 8.6, 6.0, and 12.4, respectively) and decreases gradually as term approaches (1.8, 1.3, 1.2, and 1.4, respectively). Interestingly, as soon as proximal tubules become differentiated (appearance of light microscopic features of proximal tubular epithelium with TP lectin positive brush border), their PI becomes very low (below 1) irrespective of the age of the kidney. This is the first quantitative study to show changes of the PI in various renal cell populations during human nephrogenesis. These changes in the PI relate to the stage of differentiation of the developing nephron segments.

    ABSTRACT: Mast cells (MCs), few in the normal kidney, are found in increased number in the renal parenchyma in diseases associated with persistent chronic inflammation. MCs are not easily identified in routinely processed archival tissue sections with histochemical stains. A more reliable method of detection was provided with the introduction of MC tryptase-specific monoclonal antibodies. To determine the possible role of MCs in renal allograft rejection, we studied 28 biopsy specimens from renal allografts that had been in place for various lengths of time (from 3 days to 40 months) in patients whose primary diagnosis was acute interstitial rejection; the specimens were associated with varying degrees of interstitial fibrosis, edema, and hemorrhage. The specimens were graded on a semiquantitative scale (from 0 to 3+) for the severity of rejection, the degree of interstitial fibrosis, interstitial edema, and interstitial hemorrhage. Eosinophils, plasma cells, and MCs were quantitatively evaluated in these biopsy specimens. MCs were detected by use of a commercially available anti-MC tryptase monoclonal antibody, which proved to be an excellent tool to detect MCs in routinely processed paraffin sections. A positive correlation was found between the number of MCs and the time since transplantation (R = 0.841, P < 0.005) and between the number of MCs and the severity of interstitial fibrosis (R = 0.489, P < 0.005), as well as with interstitial edema (R = 0.517, P < 0.005). MCs were increased in number in patients with moderate (n = 18; mean, 18.00 MCs per 10 high power fields [HPFs]) and severe (n = 5; mean, 12.20 MCs per 10 HPFs) acute rejection compared with patients with mild (n = 5; mean, 2.44 MCs per 10 HPFs) acute rejection and normal kidneys (n = 6; mean, 1.75 MCs per 10 HPFs). These results suggested that MCs might play a role in the process of acute rejection of renal allografts and in the development of interstitial fibrosis.

    ABSTRACT: To determine the nephron segment distribution of tubular epithelial damage and regeneration and the proliferative activity of various nephron segments in human acute tubular necrosis (ATN) with an antibody to proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and to compare the findings in native kidneys with ATN with those in transplant kidneys with ATN, archival tissues from 12 native and 21 transplant kidney biopsy specimens and nine transplant nephrectomy specimens were collected that all showed obvious morphological signs of ATN. Nineteen patients with transplant kidneys with ATN were immunosuppressed with cyclosporine and 11 were immunosuppressed with prednisone and azathioprine. There was a predominance of "regenerating" tubules (tubules with thin epithelium) in the distal nephron in native kidneys with ATN; in the transplant kidneys this was less conspicuous. The number of Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP)-positive tubules was decreased in all kidneys with ATN compared with normal human kidneys. In contrast, the number of THP-positive casts was much higher in all kidneys with ATN than in the normal kidneys. In transplant kidneys with ATN the number of THP-positive casts was substantially lower than in native kidneys with ATN. The macula densa appears to maintain its morphological integrity in kidneys with ATN. Both regenerating and normal appearing tubules expressed vimentin and HLA-DR. The proliferation index (PI; ie, percentage of PCNA-positive nuclei) of the renal tubular epithelium in normal control kidneys varied between 0.22 and 0.33, depending on the tubule segment. The highest PI was noted in the transplant kidneys with ATN not treated with cyclosporine (8.0), followed by the native kidneys with ATN (4.4) and the transplant kidneys with ATN treated with cyclosporine (4.3). We did not find any significant difference in the PI between the regenerating (5.0) and normal appearing (5.6) tubules. Proximal tubules (8.7) showed significantly higher PI values than distal tubules (3.5) in transplant kidneys with ATN. Our results show substantial differences between native kidneys and transplant kidneys with ATN. Tubular epithelial cell proliferation in human ATN is prominent and appears to correlate with the severity of ATN. Light microscopically normal appearing tubules and regenerating tubules participate equally in the regeneration of injured tubules. Cyclosporine may have an inhibitory effect on cell regeneration (proliferation) in human transplant kidneys with ATN.

    ABSTRACT: Increased proliferative activity of the renal tubular epithelium is thought to be a prerequisite for renal cyst formation by many investigators. However, in humans, the exact in vivo proliferation rate of epithelial cells lining these cysts is not known. In this study, which used immunohistochemical methods with an antibody to proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), the proliferation index (PI) (percentage of PCNA positive cell nuclei among epithelial cells lining the renal cysts) was determined in 10 cases of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), 8 cases of autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD), and 8 cases of acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD). Cysts with proximal and distal nephron phenotype and cysts with markedly thickened basement membranes, as well as cysts lined by atrophic (flattened), "regular" (cuboidal or cylindrical), and hyperplastic epithelium, were evaluated separately. The overall PI of cyst epithelium (excluding hyperplastic cysts) was 2.58 in ADPKD, was 10.5 in ARPKD, and was 3.61 in ACKD. Overall, there were only minor differences in the PI between the various types of cysts. Cysts with hyperplastic epithelium in ACKD (unlike in ADPKD) showed a high PI (9.1). For comparison, the PI of two renal cell carcinomas occurring in two ACKD cases was also determined (13.70 and 8.67%). The PI of tubular epithelium in normal kidneys was only 0.22 to 0.33%, depending on the tubule segment. In contrast, in polycystic kidneys, those noncystic segments of the nephron from which the cysts are thought to originate (distal nephron (specifically collecting duct)) in ARPKD, primarily distal in ADPKD, proximal and distal in ACKD, had PI values similar to those of the cyst epithelium.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 400 WORDS)

    ABSTRACT: Endotoxin-induced cytokines such as interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor (TNF) are thought to contribute to the proinflammatory effects of endotoxin in gram-negative infections. Using a conscious rat model of sepsis, induced by intravenous challenge with LD95 doses of endotoxin (n = 24) or live Escherichia coli (E. coli) (n = 24), we examined frozen sections of kidney at various intervals for evidence of IL-1 alpha and TNF alpha expression. A transient glomerular endothelial IL-1 alpha expression was demonstrated at 30 and 90 min after initiation of the sepsis in both endotoxin and E. coli-treated animals using immunohistochemistry. The endothelial IL-1 alpha expression as determined by immunohistochemistry occurred at the same time as IL-1 alpha mRNA expression, as determined by Northern blot analysis. The glomerular endothelial IL-1 alpha expression coincided with a slight but significant increase in the number of the glomerular polymorphonuclear leukocytes as identified by naphthol AS-D chloroacetate esterase enzyme histochemical reaction. Glomerular endothelial IL-1 alpha expression was virtually absent by 180 and 360 min. No TNF alpha expression was detected in the renal tissues at any time interval. Neither alpha-naphthyl acetate esterase-positive nor acid phosphatase-positive monocytes/macrophages were identified in the glomeruli. Our findings provide direct in vivo evidence that the IL-1 alpha gene product is expressed locally in the kidney by glomerular endothelial cells in this septic rat model.

    ABSTRACT: The thrombomodulin-dependent protein C anticoagulant pathway plays a major physiologic role in the down-regulation of the coagulation process. In cell culture, inflammatory cytokines or endotoxin can down-regulate endothelial thrombomodulin (TM) suggesting that suppressed TM expression may contribute to thrombotic complications noted in Gram-negative sepsis. In the present study, we have examined TM expression in the kidneys of septic rats utilizing indirect immunofluorescence and have quantified TM antigen and TM activity in extracts of the same kidneys by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays and protein C activation assays, respectively. Conscious Sprague-Dawley rats were injected intravenously with LD95 doses of live E. coli (N = 30), or endotoxin (N = 30). Control animals (N = 30) were injected with equivalent volumes of saline. The rats were killed 30, 90, 180, 360, and 720 minutes after the initiation of sepsis. Glomerular capillary thrombosis developed by 180 minutes in approximately half of the animals after the initiation of sepsis. We failed to demonstrate suppressed TM expression in the kidneys of septic animals using immunofluorescence. Neither enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays, nor protein C activation assays showed decreased levels in TM antigen expression or activity at different time points during the sepsis. These results indicate that suppressed TM expression does not contribute to the development of the glomerular capillary thrombosis in this septic rat model.

    ABSTRACT: The proliferative activity of various normal human renal cell populations is unknown. Recently, antibodies to cell proliferation-associated nuclear proteins, such as proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and KI-67, which are applicable to archival paraffin sections, became available. With antibodies to PCNA and Ki-67 after microwave pretreatment of the paraffin sections, the proliferation indexes (ratio of positive nuclei with PCNA and Ki-67 antibodies/all nuclei counted x 100, i.e. percentage of positive cells) of 12 different intrinsic renal cell populations in 20 normal human kidneys have been determined. The following proliferation indexes (percentages of positive cells) were found with the PCNA and the Ki-67 antibodies, respectively: proximal tubular epithelium, 0.22, 0.24; thin limb of Henle, 0.29, 0.30; thick ascending limb of Henle, 0.32, 0.29; distal tubular epithelium (distal convoluted tubules and cortical collecting ducts, 0.33, 0.44; medullary collecting ducts, 0.32, 0.3; glomerular mesangial cells, 0.07, 0.12; glomerular visceral epithelial cells, 0.04, 0.08; glomerular parietal epithelial cells, 0.07, 0.1; glomerular capillary endothelium, 0.42, 0.47; peritubular capillary endothelial cells, 0.38, 0.43; endothelium of large intrarenal vessels (arteries and veins), 0.09, 0.12. Thus, normally capillary endothelium (glomerular and peritubular) appears to have the highest proliferation index in the human kidney by these techniques. These results indicate major variation in the proliferative activity of normal human renal cell populations, along with a significant correlation between PCNA and Ki-67 staining. Furthermore, this study provides normal values for the proliferative activity of different human renal cell populations.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)

    ABSTRACT: We report the case of a 50 year old woman with metastatic breast carcinoma refractory to chemotherapy who died of candidal septicemia after autologous bone marrow transplantation. Although there was no apparent active cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection (negative cultures and serology for active infection), autopsy revealed histologic evidence of CMV inclusions limited to both ovaries. DNA in situ hybridization was performed on multiple organs, and additional foci of infection in one fallopian tube and the adrenal glands were detected. Previous reports of isolated CMV oophoritis may represent sampling error. An ascending route of infection is suggested. Tubo-ovarian changes due to CMV infection may occur more frequently than suspected; they are difficult to diagnose because even actively CMV infected cells may not be detected by routine histology alone, and because, after the active infection 'heals', no evidence of the virus can be found on histologic examination.
