The complex-formation equilibria of [Pd(SMC)(H2O)2]+, where SMC = S-methyl-l-cysteinate, with bio-relevant ligands such as amino acids, peptides, dicarboxylic acids and DNA constituents were studied and their formation constants were determined. The binding mode of the ligands containing various functional groups was studied and the speciation diagrams were(More)
INTRODUCTION Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of increased morbidity and mortality observed in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is thought to be a key initial event in the development of atherosclerosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential role of hemostatic factors in(More)
Traditional cardiovascular risk factors are common among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. However the high prevalence of atherosclerosis and arterial calcification in CKD is far beyond the explanation by common cardiovascular risk factors. The aim of this study is to determine the incidence of cardiovascular calcification and its relation to(More)
Background: Cardiovascular diseases are common in hemodialysis (HD) patients and cardiovascular mortality is responsible for 50% of overall deaths in these patients. Epicardial fat thickness (EpFT) may be an effective marker for the prediction of cardiovascular diseases in hemodialysis patients. The thickness of EpF can be measured by echocardiography that(More)
