OBJECTIVES To better define the longitudinal changes in renal function, to examine the associated risk factors, and to investigate whether there is an independent association of decline in renal function with presence of carotid plaque in a middle-aged and elderly healthy population. METHODS 245 healthy individuals (98 males, 147 females) evaluated at(More)
AIM In order to determine the relationship between glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and age, the associated factors, and the accurate method of GFR in healthy adults, we conducted a cross-sectional study in community-dwelling adults in Beijing. METHODS Renal function of 201 clinically healthy subjects was determined using technetium-99 m-labelled(More)
Recent data indicated that aging accelerated glomerular fibrin deposition induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in mice. Our hypothesis was that aging may exacerbate glomerular inflammatory responses induced by glomerular fibrin deposition. Both young and aged rats with glomerular fibrin deposition induced by LPS were treated with tranexamic acid (TA) and TA(More)
