The i-PTH response to changes in the peritoneal calcium balance was studied prospectively in a group of 13 stable CAPD patients, who presumably had adynamic bone disease, with low or normal i-PTH values and low aluminum in plasma. Five days after the reduction of dialysate calcium concentration from 1.75 mmol/l to 1 mmol/l, there was a significant elevation(More)
The aim of this study was to find out the relationship between body iron stores and serum aluminum levels among 82 stable CAPD patients. The influence of other factors such as time on CAPD and residual renal function was also considered. Thirty-three patients received aluminum hydroxide as a phosphate binder, and they had significantly higher aluminum(More)
Diabetic patients on dialysis have lower levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH); however, there is no data regarding PTH levels with different degrees of chronic renal failure (CRF). We compared 58 diabetic patients with different degrees of CRF with 268 non-diabetic patients with CRF (serum creatinine >1.2 mg/dl). In both groups, we investigated the main(More)
UNLABELLED Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis secondary to peritoneal dialysis has been associated to acetate-containing dialysis fluids, hypertonic glucose and disinfectants. Physiopathologic mechanisms of fibrotic proliferation that implicate those agents are not totally explained. With an experimental approach using cultured peritoneal fibroblasts, we(More)
AIM The objective of the study reported here was to describe dose equivalence and hemoglobin (Hb) stability in a cohort of unselected hemodialysis patients who were switched simultaneously from epoetin alfa to darbepoetin alfa. METHODS This was a multicenter, observational, retrospective study in patients aged ≥18 years who switched from intravenous (IV)(More)
