BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Oxysterols are markers of oxidative stress, levels of which have not yet been reported in hemodialysis (HD) patients. This study was designed to compare levels of the oxysterols 7-ketocholesterol (7KC) and 7beta-hydroxycholesterol (7betaOH) between a cohort of HD patients and healthy controls. METHODS This nested cross-sectional study reflects baseline (pre-intervention) values for markers of oxidative stress, inflammation and nutrition status in the 160-member… CONTINUE READING
