Patients with uremia (whether requiring renal replacement therapy or not) have a greatly increased cardiovascular risk that cannot be explained entirely by traditional cardiovascular risk factors. An increase in oxidative stress has been proposed as a nontraditional cardiovascular risk factor in this patient population. Using a wide variety of different biomarkers of increased oxidative stress status, numerous laboratories around the world have now unequivocally demonstrated that uremia is a… CONTINUE READING
