The effect of renal transplantation on hyperhomocysteinaemia in dialysis patients, and the estimation of renal homocysteine extraction in patients with normal renal function.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The pathophysiology of hyperhomocysteinaemia in chronic renal failure (CRF) is unknown. Possible mechanisms are decreased renal homocysteine (Hcy) catabolism or inhibition of extrarenal Hcy metabolism by uraemic toxins. METHODS We studied the short-term effect on plasma Hcy concentration of improvement of renal function after successful kidney… (More)
