Pruritus is common among patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing dialysis, and the pathogenesis can be explained by several mechanisms. However, there is no definite evidence supporting them, which limits the relative efficacy of any individual treatment option. In this paper, we aimed to compare pregabalin with ondansetron in treatment of uraemic(More)
BACKGROUND Secondary hyperparathyroidism (sHPT) is a common acquired disorder in patients with chronic renal failure. Despite the development of new therapeutic agents, a majority of patients will require parathyroidectomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate total parathyroidectomy with auto-transplantation of trace amounts of parathyroid tissue as a(More)
To study the correlation between the levels of IFN-γ and IL-4 and the expression of Fas and Bcl-2 in peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) in hemodialysis patients, the indirect immune fluorescein labeling method of flow cytometry and solid sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay were performed for detecting the expression of Fas and Bcl-2 in PBL and the(More)
This systematic review summarizes evidence on allotransplantation of donor kidneys after resection of a small renal cancer or contralateral healthy kidneys from cadaveric donors with unilateral renal cancer. Eligible studies were identified by screening four bibliographic databases, contacting key authors, and analyzing the bibliographies of included(More)
Diabetic nephropathy (DN) is not only an important chronic complication of diabetes, but is also one of the predominant cause of renal failure. Previous studies have indicated that the process termed 'epithelial‑mesenchymal transition' (EMT) results in fibrosis of renal tubular epithelial cells, and is key in DN. As an antioxidant, procyanidin B2 can(More)
To discuss the effect of continuous blood purification (CBP) on the prognosis of cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) patients. Twenty-seven patients were selected for this study, who had previously been treated at the Blood Purification Center of the General Hospital of Jinan Military Region from May 2007 to October 2010. All patients suffered from chronic heart(More)
The worry of potential residual renal cancer cells in donor kidney after resection of small renal cancer impedes the extensive use of such controversial donor source. To explore the impacts of organ preservation process on the survival of renal cancer cells, we detected cell proliferation and viability of benign and malignant renal cell lines and clinical(More)
