BACKGROUND In endemic areas, visceral leishmaniasis has been identified as an opportunistic infection in patients with derangements in their cellular immune system. METHODS We report a renal transplant patient with visceral leishmaniasis. We also reviewed the previously published cases of 17 organ transplant recipients with this parasitic disease. (More)
Dyslipidemia is an important complication affecting kidney transplant recipients. Statins, the first-line therapy, are often insufficient. Ezetimibe may be effective in combination with statin therapy. We performed a retrospective study to determine the safety and efficacy of ezetimibe treatment in addition to statin therapy among 27 stable renal transplant(More)
Hyperdynamic circulation and portal hypertension characterize acute on chronic liver failure (AoCLF), partially because of circulating mediators. Molecular Absorbents Recirculating System (MARS) may remove some of these substances. The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of MARS on portal pressure, systemic haemodynamic and endogenous(More)
Focal segmental golmerulosclerosis (FSGS) recurs in 30% of patients with FSGS who received a first renal transplant and in more than 80% of patients receiving a second transplant after a recurrence. Plasmapheresis (PP) can reduce proteinuria and even induce complete remission of proteinuria. We studied the effects of rituximab therapy associated with(More)
A clinical investigation program was carried out to replace endogenous albumin of patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD) with 5% Human Albumin Grifols(R) through a plasma exchange (PE) schedule, in order to alter the dynamic equilibrium between albumin-bound Abeta in plasma and Abeta in cerebrospinal fluid. In a pilot proof-of-concept(More)
To evaluate cardiovascular disease (CVD) after renal transplantation we established a CVD database (no-intervention) including all patients transplanted among 2000-2002 in 14 hospitals from Spain (Renal Forum Group) (n=2600). They were prospective followed annually thereafter and we present herein the most important results concerning survival figures and(More)
