Cinacalcet for secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients receiving hemodialysis.
TLDR
Cinacalcet lowers parathyroid hormone levels and improves calcium-phosphorus homeostasis in patients receiving hemodialysis who have uncontrolled secondary hyperparathyroidism. Expand
Executive summary of the 2017 KDIGO Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral and Bone Disorder (CKD-MBD) Guideline Update: what's changed and why it matters.
TLDR
This review highlights key aspects of the 2017 CKD-MBD Guideline Update, with an emphasis on the rationale for the changes made to the original guideline document. Expand
Effect of the molecular adsorbent recirculating system and Prometheus devices on systemic haemodynamics and vasoactive agents in patients with acute-on-chronic alcoholic liver failure
TLDR
The MARS device, and not the Prometheus device, significantly attenuates the hyperdynamic circulation in acute-on-chronic liver failure, presumably by a difference in removal rate of certain vasoactive substances. Expand
Mycophenolate mofetil in IgA nephropathy: results of a 3-year prospective placebo-controlled randomized study.
TLDR
In patients with IgAN at risk for progressive disease, no beneficial effect of 3-year treatment with mycophenolate mofetil 2 g per day could be demonstrated on renal function/outcome or proteinuria. Expand
Oxidative Stress in Chronic Kidney Disease
TLDR
The present special issue aims to inform the readership on latest developments on various aspects of oxidative stress research in CKD and to foster further research in the field. Expand
Uremic toxins originating from colonic microbial metabolism.
TLDR
There is evidence that besides reduced renal clearance, increased colonic generation and absorption explain the high levels of bacterial URMs in CKD. Expand
Influenza Vaccination Is Efficacious and Safe in Renal Transplant Recipients
TLDR
The present prospective trial is aimed at investigating the antibody response and safety of influenza vaccination in renal transplant recipients (RTR). Expand
Natural history of parathyroid function and calcium metabolism after kidney transplantation: a single-centre study.
TLDR
Kidney transplant recipients with a high iPTH and calcium x phosphate product at the time of transplantation are at risk for persistent hyperparathyroidism, especially when renal function is suboptimal. Expand
Influence of dietary protein supplements on the formation of bacterial metabolites in the colon.
TLDR
An increase in dietary protein leads to altered products formation by colonic metabolism, mainly reflected by an increase in faecal ammonia,Faecal volatile S substances, and urinary p-cresol. Expand
Genetic and clinical factors influence the baseline permeability of the peritoneal membrane.
TLDR
It is shown that the functionally relevant -174G/C polymorphism of IL-6 contributes to the interpatient variability in small solute transport rate at the start of PD and substantiate the critical role played by IL- 6 in the PM. Expand
