BACKGROUND Markers of collagen turnover have not been well studied in the context of cardiovascular disease in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated the associations between serum markers of collagen turnover [N-terminal procollagen type 3 propeptide (PIIINP) and carboxy-terminal telopeptide (C1TP)] and both pulse wave velocity (PWV) and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in a CKD cohort. METHODS The study included 242 patients (mean age 60 ± 15 years, 53% males, 80… CONTINUE READING
