Correlation between heat-shock protein 27 serum concentration and common carotid intima-media thickness in hemodialysis patients.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Cardiovascular disease is a major factor in the deterioration of the health and the death of hemodialysis patients. Previous studies have mainly shown a decreased level of heat shock protein 27 (HSP27) in patients with cardiovascular disease. We conducted this study to investigate whether HSP27 correlates with common carotid intima-media… (More)
