Conclusions: AKI and CKD led to increased systemic oxidative stress. AOPP and fructosamine could be considered potential biomarkers for both, acute and chronic kidney damage. On the other hand, AGEs, TAC, and FRAP seem to be disease specific, which could help to differentiate between acute and chronic kidney injuries. However, this needs further validation in clinical studies. PMID: 30886657 [PubMed - in process]

Resumo A desnutri ção é um fator relevante na evolução dos pacientes com doença renal crônica (DRC) em hemodiálise (HD), estando associada a maior frequência e duração de internações hospitalares. Objetivou-se avaliar o estado nutricional de pacientes com DRC em HD em unidades públicas ou privadas vincu ladas ao SUS no Distrito Federal. Dados sociodemográficos, bioquímicos e antropométricos foram obtidos de 96 participantes, sendo 35,5% provenientes de hospitais públicos. Os critérios utilizado...

Abstract Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is characterized by recurrent episodes of pharyngeal collapse during sleep resulting in intermittent hypoxia (IH), and is associated with high incidence of hypertension and accelerated renal failure. In rodents, endothelin-1 (ET-1) contributes to IH-induced hypertension, and ET-1 levels inversely correlate with glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in end-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Therefore, we hypothesized that a dual ET receptor antagonist, macitentan (Actelion Pharmaceuticals) will attenuate and reverse hypertension and renal dysfunction in a rat model of com...

ConclusionsCardiac biomarkers, especially the s ‐HFABP, might predict the development of true WRF in AHF patients. Furthermore, the predictive value was higher in AHF patients without CKD than in those with CKD.

We examined these risks for each treatment group and the risks stratified by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR).ResultsOverall, the relative risk for sCri was>  1.0 with the 400 mg/day dose of lesinurad and higher with the 200 mg/day dose, but it was

This article aims to establish the suitable hemoglobin in order to provide clinical guidance. METHODS: MEDLINE, EmBase, the Cochrane Library and other databases were searched with both MeSH terms and keywords to gather randomized controlled trials that assessed all-cause mortality, cardiovascular events, fistula thrombosis, infectious diseases and transfusion among dialysis-dependent patients using erythropoiesis-stimulating agents. The meta-analysis was accomplished via Revman 5.3 version. FINDINGS: Totally, nine eligible studies were included, with study subjects involving 3228 patients. There was a significantly...
