To evaluate the association between arterial stiffness and inflammatory markers including C-reactive protein (CRP), pentraxin 3 (PTX3) and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) patients with preserved renal function. A total of 52 ADPKD patients [mean (SD) age 38.2 (12.8) years, 69.2 % were females](More)
OBJECTIVE Oxidative stress has been suggested to have a pivotal role in the development of cardiovascular disease in kidney transplant patients (KTPs). The effects of fluvastatin on oxidative status in KTPs have not been well evaluated. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of fluvastatin on oxidative status by investigating erythrocyte(More)
INTRODUCTION Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that may affect almost all organ systems. Renal involvement is the most significant prognostic factor. Renal biopsy findings play an important role in treatment decision. Ki-67 is a monoclonal antibody that is only found in proliferative cells. This study aimed to investigate the(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to evaluate risk factors affecting graft and patient survival after transplantation from deceased donors. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the outcomes of 186 transplantations from deceased donors performed at our center between 2006 and 2014. The recipients were divided into two groups: Group I (141 recipients without(More)
Epicardial adipose tissue thickness (EATT) is suggested as a novel marker of subclinical atherosclerosis. Despite increased carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) in autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) patients, the extent of the relationship between CIMT and EATT is unknown. The main purpose of our study was to evaluate the relation between(More)
INTRODUCTION Recent studies report reduced vascular compliance and elevated levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and preserved kidney function. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between vascular compliance and FGF23 in patients in early phases of ADPKD. (More)
BACKGROUND C3 glomerulopathy (C3GP) is a recently identified and described disease that has a high risk of progressing into end-stage renal disease. We aimed to evaluate the effects of various immunosuppressive regimens on C3GP progression because there are conflicting data on the treatment modalities. METHODS In this retrospective study of 66 patients(More)
Introduction. Recent studies report reduced vascular compliance and elevated levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) in patients with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD) and preserved kidney function. In the present study, we investigated the relationship between vascular compliance and FGF23 in patients in early phases of ADPKD.(More)
