Predicting residual kidney function in hemodialysis patients using serum β-trace protein and β2-microglobulin.
Residual kidney function (RKF) contributes significant solute clearance in hemodialysis patients. Kidney Diseases Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) guidelines suggest that hemodialysis dose can beExpand

Assessment of the spatial pattern of colorectal tumour perfusion estimated at perfusion CT using two-dimensional fractal analysis
The aim was to evaluate the feasibility of fractal analysis for assessing the spatial pattern of colorectal tumour perfusion at dynamic contrast-enhanced CT (perfusion CT). Twenty patients withExpand

Relationship between human tumour angiogenic profile and combretastatin-induced vascular shutdown: an exploratory study
Combretastatin-A4-phosphate (CA4P) acts most effectively against immature tumour vasculature. We investigated whether histological angiogenic profile can explain the differential sensitivity of humanExpand

Shear-induced global thrombosis test of native blood: pivotal role of ADP allows monitoring of P2Y12 antagonist therapy.
BACKGROUND It is claimed that in shear-induced platelet function tests, shear-stress is the sole agonist causing platelet activation and resultant thrombosis. However, the fact that red blood cellsExpand
