BACKGROUND Malnutrition and inflammation are common and serious complications in patients with acute kidney injury (AKI). However, the profile of these complications in patients with AKI caused by crush syndrome (CS) remains unclear. This study describes the clinical characteristics of malnutrition and inflammation in patients with AKI and CS due to the(More)
AQM is an effective mechanism to provide early congestion control carried on the intermediate router. In this paper, we introduce a novel, autonomic, intelligent and stateless proactive fuzzy logic AQM (PFL) to deal with uncertain network events. PFL has two advantages. First, a simple and efficient non-linear fuzzy control law is built for PFL, which makes(More)
Computer Network Simulator(CNS) is researched and developed for experimental teaching and research to overcome the limitations of the real network equipment resources. By using it, students can do the experiment on computer just like in the real machine. The CNS can not only help teachers and students to teach and learn, but also can achieve the goal of(More)
Several genome-wide association studies revealed that several variants of UMOD gene were related to the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), CKD or hypertension. In this study, we investigated the association between a common variant rs13333226 in the promoter region of UMOD gene and end stage renal disease (ESRD). Variant rs13333226 of UMOD gene(More)
Metabolic syndrome (MS) is prevalent, with an increasing contribution to the incidence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The study of the relationship between them is important. The CKD survey, a national cross-sectional study, provided a large database to accomplish this study. The study population were 41 131 adults from this survey between 2008 and 2009.(More)
BACKGROUND KDIGO (Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes) guidelines recommend that a lateral abdominal radiograph should be performed to assess vascular calcification (VC) in dialysis patients. However, abdominal aortic calcification is a prevalent finding, and it remains unclear whether other anatomical areas of VC can predict mortality more(More)
BACKGROUND The deficiency of beta1,3 galactose in hinge region of IgA1 molecule played a pivotal role in pathogenesis of IgA nephropathy (IgAN). Cosmc, encoded by C1GALT1C1 gene, was indispensable to beta1,3 galactosylation of IgA1. We designed a serial study to investigate the relationship between the mutations of C1GALT1C1 gene and the genetic(More)
