By Dr.Georgi Abraham, Latha Kumaraswami TANKER FOUNDATION

Chronic kidney disease of unknown origin (CKDu) is an emerging public health problem in

the south asia region with a population of 1.7 billion people. How does it differ from other

forms of kidney disease. It is prevalent in certain geographical areas of the developing

countries, it affects mainly the people belonging to lower socio economic status, the age

group is young adults and middle aged, seen predominantly in farming communities, many

members of the family are affected, it is progressive, the cause is not known. They have no

risk factors such as diabetes mellitus or hypertension.

In the South Asian region it is prevalent in the north central province of Srilanka such as

Anuradhapura,Polonnaruwa and Badulla districts, in the endemic area and Hambantotakl

district in the non endemic area. In India in the state of Andhra pradesh Srikakulam district

(Udhanam) which is a coastal area with beautiful landscape, greenery and fertile land,

Prakasam are predominantly affected with nearly 13% of the population having different

stages of CKDu.Clusters have also been identified in Goa and Orrisa.

The Srilankan President His Excellency Maithripala Siresena has formed a presidential task

force for urgently looking at the screening prevalence and management of the patients

afflicted with CKDu . A fund has been created named ISN Gardiner initiative for training and

research in to CKDu in Srilanka. The stake holders are Srilankan society of Nephrology,

The National Science Foundation of Srilanka Regional WHO and the government of

Srilanka with local , regional and international participations. The patients have been

grouped in to different stages of CKDu. And those who are in Stage V are being provided

Dialysis, Transplantation with the help of the Government in Srilanka. As the Investigations

for risk factors for CKDu Arsenic, cadmium, lead, selenium, pesticides and other elements

were analysed in biological samples from individuals with CKDu and compared with age-and

sex matched controls in the endemic and non endemic areas food, water, soil and

agrochemicals from both areas were analysed for heavy metals. However the issue of

genetic predisposition has not been looked at which is a daunting task due to the expenses

involved. In one of the studies performed by Professor Gangadhar Thaduri Nephrologist

from Andhra Pradesh found high silica content in the water and soil of Udhanam and in the

urine of patients.

While speaking to Professor Muhibur Rahman Nephrologist from Dhaka , Bangladesh

recently stated that they see a fairly large number of patients with Chronic Kidney disease of

unknown cause. He said that the use of agrochemicals as fertilizers in Bangladesh led to

increase content of Cadmium in rice and vegetables available in Bangladesh (published

scientific data) .Cadmium in excessive amount produces kidney disease. However no

studies have been done to identify whether CKDu in regions of Bangladesh exist or not .As

the infrastructure for studying CKDu is unavailable at this time in Bangladesh a consorted

effort by the Bangladeshi Nephrologists will be done in future to look for CKDu. CKDu

information is not available from Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan.

Just to explain about CKDu : The Kidney has four compartments are shown in the Fig :1

they are the blood vessels which supply and take out blood from the glomerulus (filter), the

glomerulus, the tubules which drain the urine, the interstitium which occupies the area

between the tubules. CKDu is predominantly a disease of the the tubules and interstitium

contrary to diabetes mellitus and hypertension which produce damage to the blood vessels

and glomerulus. The reason for the involvement of the tubule and the interstitium remains a

mystery in CKDu. The tubule undergoes atrophy and interstitium develops scars (fibrosis) a

condition called tubulo interstitial fibrosis (IFTA). Nobody knows why this happens and are

there up regulation of genes in the tubulo interstitial region in producing IFTA in CKDu.


The Government of AP has taken initiative to collaborate with ICMR whose Director General

Dr.Soumya Swaminathan has deligated a scientific team including Dr.Prabdip Kaur to

support the efforts. The TANKER FOUNDATION has been requested to convene a meeting

of the core group of Nephrologists, Pathologists, Epidemiologists,Genetis and other

environmental scientists from South Asia region to identify the cause of CKDu screening

programmes, surveillance, follow up of the patients in already existing regions and new

geographical locations in India and other regions. Professor Chacko Jacob (Vellore),

Professor Sanjay Agarwal (AIMS New Delhi), Professor Ravi Raju (Vice Chancellor AP

Medical University) will lead the different groups for discussion under the leadership of

Professor Georgi Abraham and Latha Kumaraswamy of TANKER FOUNDATION. The

group is joined by experts from Srilanka, Professor Chula Herath (President of Srilankan

Society of Nephrology),Dr.Nalika Sepali Gunavardhana (WHO) who have advanced in their

initiatives in tackling CKDu in Srilanka.

The objectives of the Core group meeting is to define CKDu in India, find out regions with

CKDu which are not identified, look at the different causes which can lead to

CKDu,Management of patients stratifying them in to various stages of CKD 1 – 5 . Provide

Dialysis treatment to patients at stage V CKD.

The Srilankan Government has taken initiatives to prevent environmental contamination by

pesticides and other environmental toxins and provide safe drinking and cooking water.

Professor Georgi Abraham and Dr.Prabdip Kaur from India were invited and involved in

tackling the CKDu in Srilanka as members of the presidential task force and WHO. The

respective state governments in India and health authorities with politicians and beurocrates

philanthropic organizations and scientists should work together to support the society with


There should be special training for Nephrologists and physicians in environmental

Nephrology with epidemiologists and social workers in addressing the issue of CKDu. The

Indian Society of Nephrology under the presidentship of Professor Chacko Jacob and

Secreatary Professior Narayan Prasad and Editor in Chief of the Indian Journal of

Nephrology Professor Sanjay Agarwal will use the Journal for disseminating the knowledge

on CKDu continuously.

The CKDu core meeting supported by TANKER FOUNDATION and MADRAS MEDICAL

MISSION HOSPITAL will hopefully work as a platform for the care of CKDu in the South

Asia Region.

Ruhaan misses another win by a whisker

Siena (Italy), May 15: Ruhaan Alva, a 10-year old schoolboy from Bengaluru, India, missed a second consecutive win in the 60cc class by a whisker and settled for second spot in the third round of the Italian Easykart Championship here on Sunday.

In a thrilling 14-lap final, Ruhaan, supported by Italian kart manufacturer Birel Art, started second on the grid, but moved to the front of the 23-kart field on the second lap and held position despite close attention from his MLG Racing team-mate Lorenzo Patrese and Andrea Pirovano.

The trio was bunched tight after 12 laps before Ruhaan was pushed wide on a right-hander which effectively cost him a possible victory as he had to rest content with second place at the finish behind a late-charging Daniele D’Urso who now heads the championship.

The podium spot took Ruhaan to fourth in the championship with 48 points having missed the first round when he competed in the 60Mini category before opting for the for the more competitive higher class.

Earlier, Ruhaan topped the pre-Final race starting from fifth as he led eight of the 11 laps to make up for a disappointing Heats outing when he finished fifth. The points from these two outings put him second on the grid for the Final.

Ruhaan’s next outing in the championship is on June 10-11 in Lonato where the fourth round is scheduled to be held.

Indian Operations GP Strategies(India)has been functioning from its Chennai Corporate Headquartersfor the last 10 years serving its global customers in multiple Indian cities.

The Company is seeing a definite shift in the way Learning is perceived by all stakeholders among corporate organizations in India. This existing need -now has a new dimension to explore. For example, what value the leaning function can bring in order to align the learning needs to the business. This leads Corporates to new thinking and ideas as they are ready to explore to expand business horizons.

Ms. Susan Sudhir, Director,Learning Operations, GP Strategies said,“Today it is not about classroom delivery alone but how learning can be constructed from scratch and then consumed to bring about desired results. This offers tremendous opportunity for us to grow. As global leaders, GP Strategies is the only service provider that has all learning solutions under one roof”.

The learning market is mostly fragmented and no single service provider offers all learning services and business models. A consolidation in the industry is expected with movement in services provided for example a shift from content development into the LMS space or a move into the education sector is being seen. GP Strategies islooking to expand itsreach to corporates in India by taking advantage of these vacant spaces and create a roadmap for that journey.

Addressing the Media, Mr. Sanjay Mandal, Country Head& Director APAC, GP Strategies said,“Learning being a complex function is no longer set to the confines of an HR department. Unlike HR which is transactional or strategic, Learning can be extremely dynamic, innovative and Strategic. The DNA of learning function is very different from any other function, so the Learning function needs help.”

It is for this reason GP Strategies is connecting with business stakeholders in India.“CEO’s can play an important part of enabling this environment where they look upon the Learning functions as key players in the room to be part of the Strategic transformation. Of course, Learning will have to raise its stakes in the game to be able to showcase the ROI.”

Finally, the Company believes that Learning acts as the eyes and ears of an organization. If the CEOrequires to look at seismic shifts in his organization, Learning could be that Richter scale that can actively provide the indicators to navigate a company in today’s business environment.To take a step forward in this regard, GP Strategies India has planned Showcase Events this year where select customers would be invited for look and feel of GP Strategies’ solutions.

Gleneagles Global Health City successfully removes the Largest Liver Tumorever reported, weighing 6.2 Kilograms

Chennai, May 11, 2017:Gleneagles Global Health City,the largest facility of Gleneagles Global Hospitals, a Parkway Pantai enterprise,hasset a new benchmark in removal of tumors from the liver in the World.The specialist team fromInstitute of Liver Disease & Transplantation at Gleneagles Global Health City, Chennai, spearheaded by Prof Mohamed Rela who has performed over 1200 liver resection operations for liver cancer,hassuccessfully performed a surgery on 66 year old ChidambaraMarathe, to remove a tumor weighing 6.2 kilograms from his Liver.The Surgery was performed byProf Mohamed Rela, Chairman & Director, Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Health City andhis teamon the 31st of March 2017MrChidambaraMarathe, hailing from Bangalore, had been diagnosed with Hepatitis B infection about 10 years ago and was undergoing antiviral treatments.In 2013,Mr. Marathe was also diagnosed withHepatocellular Carcinomadue to 2 small lesions that were detected on his liver. Hepatocellular carcinomas are liver tumors that commonly develop in patients with cirrhosis, which has formed due to viral infection (hepatitis B or C), excessive alcohol intake or fatty liver disease. Post this diagnosis, in January 2014, MrMarathe,had to undergoTransarterial Chemoembolization (TACE) a targeted chemotheraphyin order to treat these tumors. But unfortunately, the tumor had started growing again and by the time it was diagnosed the tumor had grown to the size of full term twine pregnancy.

At this stage, MrChidambaraMarathe,was in severe pain distension of the abdomen due to the tumor.During this time, Mr. Marathe had consulted various hospitals across India but was turned down due to the technical difficulty of removing such a large tumor and the high risk of complications given his age and condition.  An attempt at surgery was made at Bangalore, but was abandoned due to severe bleeding during the surgery.  Mr. Marathe was then referred to Prof Mohamed Rela, Chairman & Director, Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Health City, Chennai for further treatment.

“Mr.Marathe was in severe pain and was very confused when he was brought into our facility in Chennaias. He had already undergone the ordeal of an attempted surgery due to which the family and patient had lost all hope of recovery”, recalls Prof Mohamed Rela, Chairman & Director, Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Health City. “Imaging showed a large tumor of about 25cm in size occupying the entire abdomen.. The only chance of survival for Mr. Marathe was to remove the tumor. After a detailed evaluation, we decided to go ahead and remove the tumor. Given Mr. Marathe’s age the risk involved in the procedure was very high and I am very glad that we were able to successfully remove the tumor and provide Mr. Marathe and his family with some much needed respite”.Prof. Rela added.

Dr. Mettu Srinivas Reddy, Senior Consultant, HPB & Liver Transplantation, Institute of Liver Disease and Transplantation, Gleneagles Global Health City said, “Liver tumors which develop in patients with chronic liver disease are best treated at an early stage provided the best outcomes. We advise regular checks for these patients with blood tests and ultrasound scans at 6 monthly intervals to ensure early diagnosis. Delayed or incomplete treatment leads to recurrence within the liver and spread to other organs. It’s very uncommon that these tumors reach such a size. Surgery for these tumors is challenging because of the risk of heavy bleeding and liver failure after surgery. We evaluated the patient extensively prior to the surgery, explained the risks of the procedure to the patient and his family and then proceeded with the surgery”. 

The surgery lasted over 8 hours and the specialist team from Institute of Liver Disease & Transplantation at Gleneagles Global Health City was able to remove theentire tumor along with a small part of his large intestine as part of the tumor was in contact with it. The tumor after removal weighed 6.2 kilograms and according to reports largest liver tumor removed anywhere in the World. The surgery was completed on the 31st of March post which Mr. Marathe was shifted to the intensive care unit for further observation.
