. Int J Clin Pharmacol Ther. 2019 May 16;: Authors: Fukuda K, Miyamae F, Tomita K, Yamaashi T, Ogawa Y, Yatsumoto K, Egawa M, Yamasaki A Abstract OBJECTIVE: In elderly patients, age-related, disease-related, and drug-related factors are associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Little is known about which factors are the best predictors for CKD in elderly patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was based on 784 patients a...

In conclusion, in consensus with a recent systematic review, a single bout of the 60 J/arm was the best dose/response for increased strength of the small muscles (handgrip strength). In view of the increasing i mplementation of exercise programs during hemodialysis, the current study opens a new field for PBMT for CKD patients.

For clinical patients, chronic kidney disease will potentially lead to multiple lesion that increase the risk of mortality. The most significant challenge in CKD is detecting uremic toxins, including small water-soluble solutes (uric acid,...

CONCLUSIONS: Serum ALP level was positively and independently associated with baPWV in men and women, suggesting that an elevated ALP level may be a useful surrogate marker for arterial stiffness in adult men and women. PMID: 31092766 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Mok CC Abstract INTRODUCTION: The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is now recognized as a chronic proinflammatory and prothrombotic state that aggravates insulin resistance, oxidative injury and cardiovascular risk. MetS is more prevalent in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), a prototype of systemic autoimmune disease associated with premature atherosclerosis that cannot be accounted by traditional vascular risk factors alone. Dysregulation of the cytokines and adipokines is a common feature in both SLE and MetS, suggesting a complex relationship among autoimmunity, obesity, inflammation and athero...

Conclusions We have established the minimum clinically important difference in chronic kidney disease for common tests of physical function. These values represent the minimum change required for patients to perceive noticeable and beneficial change to their health. These scores will help interpret changes after exercise interventions where these tests are used. These minimum clinically important differences can be used to power future studies to detect clinically important changes.

This study aimed to compare the effects of indobufen, a new antiplatelet agent, with warfarin in a rat model of adenine-induced CKD. MATERIAL AND METHODS Forty-eight male Wistar rats were treated with intragastric adenine to create the rat model of CKD and were divided into four groups: an untreated control group (N=12), a group treated with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) (N=12), a group treated with indobufen, (N=12) and a group treated with warfarin (N-12). Treatment was given for 4 weeks and 8 weeks. Kidney histology was performed, and the degree of fibrosis was quantified using Masson trichrome staining. RESULTS In the rat ...
