In continuation of our recent studies on the quality of conformational models generated with CATALYST and OMEGA we present a large-scale survey focusing on the impact of conformational model quality and several screening parameters on pharmacophore-based and shape-based virtual high throughput screening (vHTS). Therefore, we collected known active compounds(More)
BACKGROUND Malnutrition is very frequent in chronic renal failure but, after successful kidney transplantation, body weight gain is common and is widely investigated, while malnutrition after transplantation is underestimated. In the present study, the prevalence of malnutrition in kidney transplant patients and the factors which might contribute to its(More)
Serum cystatin C (Cys C) was evaluated as a predictor of kidney graft failure progression, and its predictive ability was compared to other markers of graft function. The following kidney graft markers were determined in 91 patients who came for regular checkups of kidney graft function to our outpatient service in February 2008: Cys C, serum creatinine(More)
INTRODUCTION Proteinuria is the most frequent marker of kidney damage. Although 24-hour urinary proteinuria is the gold standard, the measurement of proteinuria from albumin urinary creatinine ratio is proposed as much useful method. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy of urine protein-to-creatinine (P/Cr) ratio in morning urine specimens as compared with(More)
BACKGROUND Kidney size may differ between healthy members of Balkan endemic nephropathy (BEN) and non-BEN families. The present study was designed to elucidate this, in comparison with values for BEN patients. METHODS A total of 71 BEN patients (34 males, 64.4 ± 12.0 years), 74 healthy BEN family members (39 males, 49.1 ± 12.2 years), and 59 non-BEN(More)
Lack of cadaveric organs for transplantation resulted in increased number of living related kidney donors examinations and consequent transplantations in our Department. Donor procedure, selection, drop-outs and final results for living related donors (LRD) were retrospectively analyzed in this paper. Between 1987 and 1994 202 potential LRD were examined.(More)
