Tissue and plasma concentrations of pentose-derived glycation end-products ("pentosidine") are elevated in diabetic patients with normal renal function and in both diabetic and nondiabetic patients with end-stage renal disease. To determine the effects of correcting hyperglycemia and/or renal failure on the accumulation of pentosidine, we used reverse phase and ion exchange high performance liquid chromatography to measure this advanced glycation end-product in plasma proteins of diabetic and… CONTINUE READING
