The purpose of this study was to determine the changes in calcium and potassium content in the red blood cells (RBC) of uremic patients during a hemodialysis (HD) session and a 6/hrs CAPD exchange. RBC calcium and potassium were determined in 20 patients on HD in three blood samples collected at 0'-HD (pre-HD), 45'-HD and 240'-HD (end-HD), in 20 patients on(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection among patients undergoing haemodialysis (HD) and to evaluate whether chronic haemodialysis is associated with an increased risk of HEV infection. METHODS Serum samples from 420 HD patients and 316 healthy volunteers were tested for IgG and IgM antibodies(More)
The coefficient of true intestinal calcium absorption (a value) was measured by a double radioisotope technique in 24 patients treated by regular hemodialysis for 2--46 months. The mean a value of these patients was significantly below normal (p less than 0.001). 18 of them were studied a second time after an interval of 12 months. Values at 12 months were(More)
Sera from 84 uremic patients (53 on conservative treatment and 31 on hemodialysis) were studied spectrofluorometrically in comparison with 20 normal subjects and 11 jaundiced patients. Serum fluorescence in patients with chronic renal failure was significantly higher than in normals and patients with jaundice. Two types of serum fluorescence spectra (A and(More)
