BACKGROUND Peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) including lower-extremity and cerebrovascular atherosclerosis is a leading cause of morbidity in haemodialysis patients. Recent evidence suggests that the expression of Fas, a molecule implicated in the initiation of apoptosis in various cell types, is increased at sites of atherosclerotic plaques… (More)
