Asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) is an endogenous inhibitor of endothelial-based nitric oxide synthase. Its level is increased by end stage renal disease. However, most studies showing an increase in ADMA in dialysis patients have focused on hemodialysis. Results with peritoneal dialysis patients have been more inconclusive. Recent studies suggest that ADMA may be a new cardiovascular risk factor. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the relationship between ADMA levels, residual… CONTINUE READING
