Are Uremia, Diabetes, and Atherosclerosis Linked With Impaired Antioxidant Mechanisms?
Background Oxidative stress is a new risk factor for atherosclerosis. Increased oxidative stress in hemodialysis (HD) patients may arise from uremia-associated metabolic/humoral abnormalities andExpand

Carotid artery intima-media thickness correlates with oxidative stress in chronic haemodialysis patients with accelerated atherosclerosis.
BACKGROUND Accelerated atherosclerosis is the major cause of mortality in patients on chronic haemodialysis (HD). Increased oxidative stress might be the major factor leading to high cardiovascularExpand

The relationship between the antioxidant system, oxidative stress and dialysis-related amyloidosis in hemodialysis patients.
End-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with several complications that are partly due to excess amounts of reactive oxygen species and/or decreased antioxidant activity. Dialysis-relatedExpand

The effect of hemodialysis on accelerated atherosclerosis in diabetic patients: correlation of carotid artery intima-media thickness with oxidative stress.
OBJECTIVE Both diabetes and hemodialysis (HD) are associated with increased oxidative stress. The aim of this study was to clarify the effect of maintenance HD on oxidative stress parameters inExpand
