Stress responses were compared in Chinese water deer (Hydropotes inermis) exposed to different handling, management and disease factors by measuring plasma cortisol and adrenal gland weight. Healthy free-ranging deer shot as part of a management programme served as baseline controls; they had lower cortisol levels than either diseased deer or free-ranging(More)
AIM Patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) are often characterized by the cardiorenal syndrome (CRS). The aim of the present study was to assess whether novel markers of kidney injury are able to predict progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in patients with CHF. METHODS New renal biomarkers, N-acteyl-ß-D-glucosaminidase (NAG), kidney injury(More)
BACKGROUND As complex disease, heart failure is associated with various pathophysiological and biochemical disorders. No single biomarker is able to display all these characteristics. Therefore, we evaluated a multimarker panel together with the biochemical gold-standard NT-proBNP. Part of the panel are markers for angiogenesis (Endostatin, IBP-4, IBP-7,(More)
INTRODUCTION Diabetes-associated kidney disease is characterized by impairment of renal function and albuminuria. The aim of the present study was to assess whether sleep-disordered breathing is associated with decreased estimated glomerular filtration rate or increased urine-albumin-to-creatinine-ratio independently from known modulators of(More)
