Soluble TWEAK level: is it a marker for cardiovascular disease in long-term hemodialysis patients?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Reduced soluble tumor necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (sTWEAK) levels follow declining renal function, are strongly associated with endothelial dysfunction and predict cardiovascular events in nondialyzed chronic kidney disease patients. In contrast, elevated levels of sTWEAK predict poor survival in hemodialysis (HD) patients… (More)
