BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Anemia in patients with CKD is highly related to impaired erythropoietin (EPO) response, the timing and determinants of which remain unknown. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS This study measured EPO levels and studied their relation to GFR measured by 51Cr-EDTA renal clearance (mGFR) in 336 all-stage CKD patients not(More)
The metabolism of hepcidin is profoundly modified in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated its relation to iron disorders, inflammation and hemoglobin (Hb) level in 199 non-dialyzed, non-transplanted patients with CKD stages 1-5. All had their glomerular filtration rate measured by 51Cr-EDTA renal clearance (mGFR), as well as measurements of iron(More)
BACKGROUND Iron disorders are common and complex in chronic kidney disease (CKD). We sought to determine whether a 3-marker index would improve the classification of iron disorders in CKD anaemia. METHODS We studied the association between Hb level and iron indexes combining 2 or 3 of the following markers: serum ferritin (<40 ng/mL), transferrin(More)
Key words: Aspergillus fumigatus; kidney transplanta-blood levels) and azathioprine 2 mg/kg/day (usually tion; papillary necrosis 150 mg/day). In the post-operative course, renal function did not improve and diuresis remained between 700 ml and 1.5 l/day. Doppler ultrasound and renal scintigraphy showed a good arterial flow with no
