Cytotoxin-associated gene A (CagA) positive strains of H. pylori have a significant correlation with gastritis and peptic ulcer, and may induce persistent systemic inflammatory response, increase vascular damage, and compromise glycemic control in diabetic patients. To evaluate correlation between infection by cagA positive strains of H. pylori and(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common and serious condition that frequently occurs after cardiopulmonary bypass and other cardiac surgeries. The objective of this work is to evaluate the utility of new markers for kidney damage, plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and plasma cystatin C (CysC) as early predictors of AKI after cardiac(More)
Adiponectin is a novel collagen-like protein synthesized by white adipose tissue. Its levels are decreased in obesity, type-2 diabetes and insulin-resistant states, and are increased in chronic renal failure. It has anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic properties. This study was planned to evaluate the levels of adiponectin in uremic patients with and(More)

INTRODUCTION Leptin is a hormone secreted by adipocytes that plays an important role in regulating appetite and energy expenditure. Our aim was to evaluate serum leptin level in hemodialysis (HD) patients with or without chronic liver disease (CLD) and study the relationship between serum leptin level and bone mineral density in these groups of patients.
