Circulating levels of osteopontin are related with calcification parameters in patients with renal transplantations.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Although osteopontin (OPN) is a local inhibitor of calcification, it may also be an indirect marker of ongoing systemic calcification. There are few data about clinical and laboratory parameters associated with serum OPN levels in renal transplant (RT) patients. We investigated the relationship between insulin resistance and calcification… (More)
