Vitamin D, cardiovascular disease and mortality
Despite accumulating data suggesting that a sufficient vitamin D status may protect against CVD, it is still must wait for results of large‐scale RCTs before raising general recommendations for vitamin D in the prevention and treatment of CVD.
Sarcopenia in daily practice: assessment and management
Assessment of sarcopenia in individuals with risk factors, symptoms and/or conditions exposing them to the risk of disability will become particularly important in the near future.
Prevalence of vitamin D inadequacy in European women aged over 80 years.
MDRD Versus CKD-EPI Equation to Estimate Glomerular Filtration Rate in Kidney Transplant Recipients
The CKD-EPI creatinine equation does not offer a better GFR prediction in renal transplant patients compared with the MDRD Study equation, even in the earlier CKD stages.
Assessment of vitamin D status – a changing landscape
Abstract In recent years it has been shown that vitamin D deficiency is associated with an increased incidence as well as the progression of a broad range of diseases including osteoporosis, rickets,
Neutrophil extracellular traps infiltrate the lung airway, interstitial, and vascular compartments in severe COVID-19
Neutrophil extracellular traps infiltrate the airway, interstitial, and vascular compartments, supporting the hypothesis that they may drive several aspects of COVID-19 lung pathology and represent therapeutic targets.
Dephosphorylated-uncarboxylated Matrix Gla protein concentration is predictive of vitamin K status and is correlated with vascular calcification in a cohort of hemodialysis patients
The potential role of the inactive form of MGP was confirmed in assessing the vitamin K status of the HD patients and a significant correlation between dp-ucMGP concentration and the calcification score was observed.
Errors induced by indexing glomerular filtration rate for body surface area: reductio ad absurdum.
The limitations of indexing glomerular filtration rate for BSA are shown and some evidence of its inadequacy is given to show the limitations of such an indexation.
