Impaired Sleep May Have Serious Health Consequences for Kidney Disease Patients

• In individuals with chronic kidney disease, high sleep fragmentation was associated with an elevated risk of developing kidney failure. • Higher sleep fragmentation and shorter sleep duration were each linked with steeper declines in kidney function over time. • Subjectively measured daytime sleepiness was associated with an increased risk of early death from any cause.

University of Rhode Island Research Examines Cause of Kidney Transplant Failures

Nisanne Ghonemi's research seeks to address a universal problem in kidney transplant surgery that can result in failure of the organ graft. Her research will explore the use of a class of drugs known as prostacyclins to reduce ischemia-reperfusion injury to a transplanted kidney from a deceased patient that can result in failure of the organ graft.
