The advent of understanding a possible primary role for systemic, micro-inflammatory processes in the pathobiology of renal failure likely found its root with the observation that serum albumin concentration was the strongest associate of mortal risk among dialysis patients1,2. The finding was interpreted to suggest protein-calorie malnutrition. That was supported by contemporaneous findings that high serum creatinine, not low, was associated with a risk benefit for dialysis patients1,2. The… Expand
