OBJECTIVES In spite of broad interest, intensive studies on function of melatonin have not yielded much information about relationships between this hormone and kidneys in health, and particularity, in disease. There are only a few studies dealing with melatonin concentrations in renal diseases, mainly performed in hemodialyzed patients with end-stage renal(More)
OBJECTIVES In spite of broad interest, intensive studies on function of melatonin have not yielded much information about relationships between this hormone and kidneys in health, and particularity, in disease. Very little is known about the circadian plasma melatonin concentrations in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). There are only a few studies(More)
In 16 patients (7 males, 9 females), aged 47.2 +/- 15.9 years, blood serum concentrations of osteocalcin, beta-crosslaps, parathormone, calcium, phosphate, creatinine and urea were determined before renal transplantation and 3 and 6 months following the procedure. Three as well as six months following renal transplantation significant decrease in blood(More)
Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) and tumor necrosis factor soluble receptors (sTNFR) type I and II reducing the activity of IL-1 and TNFalpha may inhibit inflammatory reactions. The aim of the study was to assess whether serum and urine IL-1ra and sTNFR measurements may be useful as the early predicting factors in patients with IgA nephropathy.(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular diseases are the most important causes of death in patients with chronic renal disease (CRD). Successful renal transplantation (RTx) corrects water and electrolyte disturbances and decreases or eliminates anaemia. It favourably influences cardiac haemodynamics and reduces risk of cardiovascular events. NT-proBNP plasma(More)
