BACKGROUND In Saudi Arabia the prevalence of hepatitis C among hemodialysis patients is very high ranging from 60 to 80%. A large number of these dialysis patients go for renal transplant, resulting into a higher prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in renal transplant patients. Yet no current systematic report is available on the influence of(More)
We present a behavioral synthesis method aimed at generating testable datapaths. A non-scan testing strategy is targeted. Given performance and area constraints, the system is aimed at seeking among potential design alternatives the one presenting the least testability problems. The backbone of this methodology is a testability analysis method that works at(More)
To evaluate the diabetic complications and fate of diabetic nephropathy in Saudi population, we studied 184 diabetic nephropathy (DN) patients who were referred to nephrology clinic of King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from January 2003-June 2006. The patients had mean age of 61.9 +/- 13.1 years, included 128 (69.6%) males, and were(More)
To obtain a more recent and comprehensive insight into the prevalence of glomerular diseases in our patient population, medical records of 200 patients with biopsy proven glomerulonephritis (GN), between January 1994 and June 1999, at the King Khalid University Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia were analyzed. Primary glomerular disease was found to be the most(More)
BACKGROUND Despite recent advances in the management of lupus nephritis (LN), these unfortunate patients are at a higher risk of developing chronic kidney disease (CKD). Concomitant chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is associated with adverse outcome in patients with LN and further compounds the risk as some of these patients choose to undergo(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the role of apoptosis inhibition in the prevention of diabetic neuropathy using the antiFas cell surface death receptor (Fas) antagonistic monoclonal antibody ZB4. METHODS This prospective study enrolled patients with type 2 diabetes with and without neuropathy and a group of healthy controls. The serum concentrations of Fas and Fas(More)
Fibrillary glomerulonephritis (FGN) is a rare glomerular deposition disease and a rare cause of nephrotic syndrome. The patients usually present with renal insufficiency, nephrotic range proteinuria and microscopic hematuria. The electron microscopy study is the only means of diagnosis. The clinical course of the disease is generally unpredictive and the(More)
