BACKGROUND End-stage renal disease is a state of enhanced oxidative stress (OS) and hemodialysis (HD) and renal anemia further augment this disbalance. Anemia correction with erythropoietin (EPO) may improve oxidative status. However, there is no evidence of time dependent effects of EPO therapy on redox status of HD patients. OBJECTIVE The aim of this(More)
The study is designed to assess the oxidative stress intensity in erythrocytes obtained from patients in different clinical phenotypes of neuroinflammation, defined as clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), malondialdehyde (MDA) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity(More)
The aim of the study was to develop a population pharmacokinetic (PK) model for clearance of bisoprolol in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Parameters associated with the plasma concentrations of bisoprolol at steady-state were analyzed in 61 patients (mean age 66.21 ± 9.49 years; mean total body weight 8.90 ± 12.26 kg) with CHF using(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate parameters of oxidative and nitrosative stress as well as antioxidative parameters in a group of renal transplant recipients with stable graft function and no clinical signs of cardiovascular disease. We also aimed to determine the correlations among these parameters and to evaluate potential differences in(More)
BACKGROUND The primary goal of this study was to evaluate the influence of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A5 (6986A>G) and ABCB1 (3435C>T) polymorphisms on tacrolimus (TAC) dosage regimen and exposure. Second, we evaluated the influence of TAC dosage regimen and the tested polymorphisms on renal oxidative injury, as well as the urinary activities of tubular(More)
Tacrolimus (Tac) is an immunosuppressive drug with a narrow therapeutic width and highly variable pharmacokinetics. Therefore, monitoring of Tac blood concentrations is of utmost importance in the management of renal transplant recipients. The occurrence and intensity of adverse effects depend on blood concentration and total exposure of the organism to(More)
