Genome-wide association studies (GWASs) have identified multiple loci associated with cross-sectional eGFR, but a systematic genetic analysis of kidney function decline over time is missing. Here we conducted a GWAS meta-analysis among 63,558 participants of European descent, initially from 16 cohorts with serial kidney function measurements within the(More)
Despite treatment advances, renal failure still develops in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). With the common use of long-term maintenance hemodialysis, this complication is no longer fatal. In order to evaluate factors that contribute to the outcome of patients with SLE receiving long-term hemodialysis, we retrospectively analyzed the(More)
We prospectively studied the in vivo dialytic clearance of iron after deferoxamine (DFO) administration in four stable iron-overloaded chronic hemodialysis patients by quantifying iron concentration in blood entering and leaving the dialyzer and in dialysate after infusions of DFO. No significant arteriovenous iron differences were demonstrated. The mean(More)
Roentgen studies in a group of 131 patients on maintenance hemodialysis reveal renal osteodystrophy in 25 patients (19 per cent). In 24 patients of the latter group (98 per cent), the various manifestations of renal osteodystrophy appear in the bony pelvis. These include: osteomalacia; osteitis fibrosa; osteosclerosis; dialysis osteopenia; and extraosseous(More)
In uremia, poor growth occurs despite normal to increased levels of insulin and GH. Since serum somatomedin levels measured by RIA and radioreceptor assay are normal in patients with renal failure, while serum somatomedin activity measured by bioassay is low but increased by dialysis, we asked if somatomedin activity could be decreased due to the presence(More)
The kinetics of urea and inulin were analyzed in five anesthetized dogs during sequential 2-hour periods before, during, and after hemodialysis. The distribution of both compounds after simultaneous intravenous injection was characterized by three-compartment models, and the total volumes of urea (0.66 +/- 0.05 L/kg) and inulin (0.19 +/- 0.01 L/kg)(More)
