BACKGROUND Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are highly prevalent in patients with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease (ESRD). These conditions contribute to high mortality rates associated with cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death in this patient population. To our knowledge, no prospective studies have examined how initiation of maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) affects biomarkers of inflammation and oxidative stress status.
