Considering the increasing widespread chronic kidney disease (CKD) prevalence, no matter of the primer etiology, various recent studies revealed the possibility of CKD regression applying different forms of therapies or early diagnosis of acute kidney injury (AKI). CKD, independent of other factors, represents a mortality risk and a renal impairment predictor after AKI. Nowadays, the high incidence of stage 5 CKD is considered to be mainly caused by episodes of AKI.

    Background Diarrhoea remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality but is difficult to measure in epidemiological studies. Challenges include the diagnosis based on self-reported symptoms, the logistical burden of intensive surveillance and the variability of diarrhoea in space, time and...

    Status epilepticus (SE) prognosis is related to nonmodifiable factors (age, etiology), but the exact role of drug treatment is unclear. This study was undertaken to address the prognostic role of treatment adherence to guidelines (TAG). We prospectively studied over 26 months a cohort of adults...
