Tissue factor/its pathway inhibitor system and kynurenines in chronic kidney disease patients on conservative treatment.


The abnormalities of tissue factor (TF) and its inhibitor (TFPI) system could potentially contribute to high incidence of thrombotic complications and atherosclerosis in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Recently, the role of the kynurenine (KYN) pathway of tryptophan (TRP) degradation has been postulated in the progression of cardiovascular… (More)
