hsCRP, sICAM-1 and TAFI in hemodialysis patients: linking inflammation and hypofibrinolysis to cardiovascular events.


BACKGROUND/AIMS Growing evidence suggests that inflammation, oxidative stress and hypofibrinolysis may have a pivotal role in the high prevalence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. This study aims to investigate the association of these processes with the incidence of CVD in hemodialysis (HD) patients and to examine… (More)
