BACKGROUND Cardiovascular disease is more common in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) than in the general population. Endothelial dysfunction is an early predictor of cardiovascular events. OBJECTIVE We conducted a cross-sectional study in CKD patients to explore the association of metabolic syndrome (MetS) components with endothelial cell(More)
BACKGROUND Metabolic syndrome increases the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality in the general population. AIMS To investigate whether metabolic syndrome affects CVD and all-cause mortality in chronic haemodialysis patients. METHODS This prospective, observational cohort study was carried out at Peking university third hospital(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aims to quantify and compare the risks of death and end stage renal disease (ESRD) in a prospective cohort of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) stages 1-5 under renal management clinic at Peking University Third Hospital and to evaluate the risk factors associated with these two outcomes. METHOD This was a prospective cohort(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate whether urinary phospholipids could be regarded as biomarkers of chronic kidney disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirteen healthy volunteers and 26 consecutive chronic kidney disease patients were included. Urinary phospholipids were quantified by high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with electrospray ionization tandem mass(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the differences between hospital-acquired acute renal failure (HA-ARF) and community-acquired acute renal failure (CA-ARF) in epidemiology, etiology and prognosis. METHODS The diagnosis of ARF of patients diagnosed with ARF from ICD-9 codes, who were discharged from Peking University Third Hospital from January 1994 to December(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the change in epidemiology and etiology of hospitalized patients with acute renal failure (ARF) during the last years. METHODS The data of hospitalized patients with ARF in the Third Hospital of Peking University during the last 10 years were retrospectively analyzed. The changes in epidemiology and etiology and the relative(More)
BACKGROUND To evaluate the effect of individualized education for patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). METHODS A total of 280 patients (158 males, mean age 63 ± 10 years) with T2DM were randomly divided into study and control group. Eysenck Personality questionnaire was used to assess the personality of the patients in the study group, which was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to investigate origin, gross features, microscopic features, immunohistochemical properties, and differential diagnosis of adrenal cortical adenoma (ACA) in patients ≥20 years old. METHODS The clinicopathological features of 116 cases of ACA and the immunohistochemical features of 50 cases of ACA were evaluated, and the(More)
Human urotensin II (hUII) is a newly discovered substance that can dilate small blood vessels to decrease the blood pressure (BP). Our previous studies showed that some volume-overloaded patients on peritoneal dialysis can maintain normal BP (congestive heart failure excluded), suggesting that these patients have volume resistance capacity. This study is to(More)
In this study we explored the possible role of arachidonoylethanolamine (AEA) in regulating blood pressure in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). One hundred and five patients on CAPD were enrolled. Volume status was evaluated by the overhydration (OH) value obtained by bioimpedance analysis. OH < 2.0 kg was defined as normal(More)
