Septic AKI and role of the dialysis membrane
New perspectives in sepsis, particularly in septic AKI, and the role of the dialysis membrane were recently presented by Giuseppe Castellano at the national congress of SIN (Italian Society of Nephrology).
Exiting new results show the capability of a new PMMA membrane for continuous therapies of inhibiting complement system activation in LPS-induced AKI and lowering the transition from AKI to CKD damage, opening a new scenario in the management of septic AKI.
CKD, kidney transplantation and role of dialysis membrane
During the recent national congress of SIN (Italian Society of Nephrology) Prof. Grandaliano presented interesting concepts on the role of the dialysis membrane in CKD patients, in particular patients who are waitlisted for transplantation. In addition, promising results on the use of PMMA dialysis membrane in COVID-19 patients were presented.

WORLD SEPSIS DAY 2020
World Sepsis Day (WSD) on September 13 is a global initiative to raise public awareness of sepsis, a leading cause of death and disability for millions of people every year. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, sepsis awareness is as important as ever. Sepsis is the most common pathway to death from most infectious diseases worldwide, including SARS-CoV-2, malaria, ebola, and more.
