July Article of the Month
Paige Condit, one of our six two crew interns, has reviewed “Prevalence and Risk Factors for Kidney Disease and Elevated BP in 2-Year-Old Children Born Extremely Premature” published in CJASN by HIngorani et. al. for the July article of the month. In this article, infants born at < 28 weeks gestation had increased prevalence of adverse kidney outcomes at 2 years of age. The prevalence was independent of whether the infant experienced AKI or amongst infants with alterations in cystatin C and Cr levels throughout their NICU stay, indicating the long-term adverse outcome prevalence may be secondary to intrinsic kidney differences from prematurity and potentially not related to the NICU experience. For more information, read the complete summary or the article HERE.

Six2 Crew: Neonatal Nephrology Internship
Congratulations to our first group of Six2 Crew interns. Our 8 interns include pediatric residents, chief residents, as well as fellows in neonatology and nephrology (or both!). During their two years with the program, they will rotate through each committee and learn more about the work of the NKC. Join us in welcoming them to the NKC!
We have created a page on the website which pulls directly from PubMed the newest articles in neonatal kidney disease. While this is not an inclusive list, we hope that this is a helpful resource for NKC members to stay up to date on the new publications in the field.
