    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Bhalla's research interests are in the pathogenesis of diabetic kidney disease and salt-sensitive hypertension. Using molecular and transgenic approaches, the laboratory is interested in elucidating regulators of oxidative and carbonyl stress in glomeruli. We interface these studies with collaborative projects on biomarkers for human diabetic nephropathy.

    The laboratory also focuses on molecular mechanisms of insulin and aldosterone-induced sodium transport in the distal nephron.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on issues such as blood pressure control, coronary revascularization, and the comparative effectiveness of cardioprotective medications in patients with chronic kidney disease, with the long-term goal of improving cardiovascular outcomes in these high-risk patients.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Patients with advanced chronic kidney disease and end stage kidney disease have high rates of cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. The purpose of the Homocysteine Study was to determine if lowering their high plasma homocysteine levels would reduce their mortality. Secondary endpoints included reductions in myocardial infarction, stroke, and amputation of a lower extremity. The results showed there was no improvement in survival or reduction in the cardiovascular events.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are continuing to grow a glomerulonephritis cohort study, including immunologic characterization. We have completed interventional studies of preeclampsia exploring the nitric oxide, endothelin system and effects on glomerular function and morphometry. We continue to recruit patients for treatment and observational studies of glomerular disease, including FSGS, membranous and particularly IgA nephropathy. We also are actively studying renal disease in systemic amyloidosis.

    Current Research and Scholarly Interests Inadequate removal of uremic solutes contributes to widespread illness in the more than 350,000 Americans maintained on hemodialysis. But we know remarkably little about these solutes. Dr. Meyer's research efforts are focused on identifying which uremic solutes are toxic, how these solutes are made, and how their production could be decreased or their removal could be increased. We should be able to improve treatment if we knew more about what we are trying to remove.
