ABSTRACT
The article reports o the study conducted by Cristina Gonzalez Pulido of the University Hospital Virgen del Rocio and colleagues which reveals that systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients with renal failure often continue to experience flares. The study found that dialysis decreased lupus activity, but suggests the importance of carefully assessing the patient for on-going activity. It demonstrates that lupus activity could be present even after renal transplantation.

    Background: Women with SLE have higher rates of persistent human papilloma virus (HPV) infections and precancerous lesions than healthy women. HPV vaccine is safe and effective in healthy females aged 9-26 years. There are limited data on the safety and immunogenicity of HPV vaccine in females...

    BK virus (BKV) is a human polyomavirus with a seroprevalence of 60–80 % in the general population. In renal transplant patients, it is known to cause renal failure, ureteric stenosis and hemorrhagic cystitis. In bone marrow transplant patients, it is evident that BKV can also cause...
