The concentration of homocysteine in plasma has been shown to be increased in renal failure, possibly contributing to the accelerated atherosclerosis observed in uraemic patients. The aim of the present study was to document the relationship between plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) concentrations and glomerular filtration rates (GFR) in highly selected patients, with renal function ranging from normal to dialysis dependency. GFR was defined as the plasma clearance of iohexol; a more accurate… CONTINUE READING
