Chronic hemodialysis (HD) may lead to losses of carnitine from plasma and muscle. Plasma carnitine does not reflect the body content of carnitine. The purpose of this study was the evaluation of total and free plasma and muscle carnitine concentrations (TPC, FPC, TMC, FMC), muscle glycogen and the relationship between plasma and tissue carnitine content and(More)
UNLABELLED Recombinant human erythropoetin beta; (rHuEPO) has not only an erythropoietic effect but also appears to affect production of cytokines and may improve nutritional status of dialysis patients. Darbepoetin alpha; is a new erythropoiesis-stimulating protein with a threefold longer serum half-life when compared with rHuEPO. The objective of this(More)
Uremic syndrome is associated with several metabolic disturbances. Oxidative stress is an important factor involved in the pathologic mechanism of these changes. The goal of this study was to understand the relationship between oxidative stress markers and two compounds included among uremic toxins. Two independent studies were performed, one with 29(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to compare the level of malonyldialdehyde (MDA) and carbonyl groups (GC) in diabetic and nondiabetic peritoneal dialysis patients. DESIGN/SETTING Prospective, observational study on peritoneal dialysis patients in a teaching hospital dialysis unit. PATIENTS A total of 21 diabetic and 66 nondiabetic patients treated(More)
We recently reported the presence of various cyclopropane fatty acids—among them, cyclopropaneoctanoic acid 2-hexyl—in the adipose tissue of obese women. The aim of this study was to verify whether the presence of cyclopropaneoctanoic acid 2-hexyl in human serum was associated with obesity or chronic kidney disease (both being related to dyslipidemia), and(More)
Malnutrition remains one of the major predictors of mortality in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aim of the study was to evaluate the nutritional status of prevalent PD patients, and to determine the best predictors of outcome among anthropometric and laboratory indices of nutrition. The study included 106 prevalent PD patients from a single(More)
Methods 103 school age children (7-16 y.o. M 50, F 53) with obesity (centile of BMI>97) were included to the study. All children were under the care of the out-patient endocrinology department. Clinical data, detail interview about the risk factors of obesity and allergies, were evaluated. Prick skin tests (Allergopharma) with common alergens and spirometry(More)
