Hepcidin in Anemia and Inflammation in Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarize the current knowledge dealing with a possible role of hepcidin in iron metabolism and its regulation, particularly in kidney disease. Expand
The periodontal status of pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease and maintenance dialysis patients.
TLDR
The disease was most advanced in maintenance HD patients-comparable to the full-symptomatic form of periodontitis; then it was successively diminished in CAPD and pre-dialysis CKD subjects, and CPITN indicated a high severity ofperiodontitis in all renal failure groups as compared with general population subjects. Expand
Could Neutrophil-Gelatinase-Associated Lipocalin and Cystatin C Predict the Development of Contrast-Induced Nephropathy after Percutaneous Coronary Interventions in Patients with Stable Angina and
TLDR
Serum creatinine level, the presence of diabetes, and the duration of the PCI may affect serum NGAL values and kidney function following a PCI procedure. Expand
Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin is a new and sensitive marker of kidney function in chronic kidney disease patients and renal allograft recipients.
TLDR
NGAL should be investigated as a potential early, sensitive marker of kidney impairment/injury, which might provide an additional accurate measure of kidney function in adult patients with CKD and among transplant recipients, particularly at advanced stages. Expand
The kynurenines are associated with oxidative stress, inflammation and the prevalence of cardiovascular disease in patients with end-stage renal disease.
TLDR
A relationship between KYN pathway activation and increased SOX, inflammation and CVD prevalence in ESRD patients is suggested. Expand
Can preschool-aged children swallow several minitablets at a time? Results from a clinical pilot study.
TLDR
The results show that minitablets administered in several units mixed with jelly food are safe and could be accepted by a pediatric population. Expand
Apelin and Cardiac Function in Hemodialyzed Patients: Possible Relations?
TLDR
Apelin level was significantly lower in dialyzed patients with CAD and it was associated with cardiac function, which may have clinical implications for future use of apelin as a novel inotropic agent also for patients with uremic cardiomyopathy. Expand
The mechanism of vascular calcification – a systematic review
TLDR
The aim of this study was to present a comprehensive survey of current state-of-the-art research into the impact of metabolic and hormonal disorders on development of vascular calcification. Expand
Hemostasis, platelet function and serotonin in acute and chronic renal failure.
TLDR
Serotonin uptake and its release from platelets were markedly diminished in patients with ARF and CRF, and increased levels of fibrin monomers and d-dimer were found relative to healthy volunteers. Expand
Renalase, a Novel Enzyme Involved in Blood Pressure Regulation, Is Related to Kidney Function but Not to Blood Pressure in Hemodialysis Patients
TLDR
Elevated renalase levels in hemodialysis patients may be due to impaired kidney function, and the possible role of renalase in the pathogenesis of hypertension in patients with kidney diseases is still unclear. Expand
