INTRODUCTION The treatment of prolonged, severe relapses in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients who respond poorly to high-dose intravenous corticosteroids is not yet established. Plasma immunoadsortion (IA) removes immunoglobulins (IgG), immune complexes, and complement from plasma. It may bear some advantages compared to plasmapheresis, a nonselective(More)
BACKGROUND To describe the causes of graft loss, patient death and survival figures in kidney transplant patients in Spain based on the recipient's age. METHODS The results at 5 years of post-transplant cardiovascular disease (CVD) patients, taken from a database on CVD, were prospectively analysed, i.e. a total of 2600 transplanted patients during(More)
Background. Statin use in renal transplantation has been associated with a lower risk of patient death but not with an improvement of graft functional survival. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of statin use in graft survival , death-censored graft survival and patient survival using the data recorded on the Spanish Late Allograft Dysfunction(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND AND STUDY DEVELOPMENT: Therapeutic apheresis is a treatment strategy aimed at removing and eliminating from blood those substances that are considered pathogenically responsible for a disease or its clinical manifestations. In a therapeutic plasmapheresis (plasma exchange), a volume of circulating plasma is extracted and usually(More)
BACKGROUND Studies conducted in animal models and humans suggest the presence of a dynamic equilibrium of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide between cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma compartments. OBJECTIVE To determine whether plasma exchange (PE) with albumin replacement was able to modify Aβ concentrations in CSF and plasma as well as to improve cognition in(More)
Detection and treatment of dysfunctional hemodialysis access grafts: effect of a surveillance program on graft patency and the incidence of thrombosis. Right atrial bypass grafting for central venous obstruction associated with dialysis access: another treatment option.
