Vitamin D, cardiovascular disease and mortality
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.
