Survival Advantage of African American Dialysis Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease Causes Related to APOL1

Conclusions: These data suggest the hypothesis that the relative survival advantage of AA dialysis patients may be related toAPOL1 variation. Further large population-based genetic studies are required to test this hypothesis.Cardiorenal Med 2019;9:212 –221

The results of SEM and EDX showed that the honeycomb structure was more obvious and the content of elemental components was changed after fermentation and microwave treatment. The result of TGA-DSC showed that the thermal stability of the sam...

SreeramaAbstractProtein glycation plays a vital role in the progression of various diabetes complications. Therefore, inhibition of protein glycation could be a key strategy to prevent these diabetic abnormalities. Evaluation of phenolic compositions and their antiglycation activity revealed that p-coumaric and chlorogenic acids were major phenolic acids in barnyard millet. These phenolics exhibited multiple antioxidant activities in various mechanisms and protected the oxidative DNA damage and hydroxyl radical-...

CONCLUSIONS: The clinical polymorphism effectiveness outlined therein will be assured by diagnostic improvements suitable for driving treatment decisions. In light of our experimental results and literature data, the analysis of the SLCO1B1 T521C variant will allow clinicians to take advantage from a better treatment planned for their patients in order to minimize neuromuscular pain and maximize benefits.
