Free 25-Vitamin D Is Correlated with Cardiovascular Events in Prevalent Hemodialysis Patients but Not with Markers of Renal Mineral Bone Disease

In conclusion, our study shows that free vitamin D serum concentrations are independently associated with major cardiovascular events in chronic kidney disease patients on dialysis.Kidney Blood Press Res

RazzaqueAbstractEarly diagnosis of sepsis is often difficult in clinical practice, whilst it can be vital for positive patient outcomes in sepsis management. Any delay in diagnosis and treatment may lead to significant organ failure and can be associated with elevated mortality rates. Early diagnosis and effective management of sepsis can allow for prompt antibiotic therapy and a potential reduction in mortality; it can also minimize the unnecessary use of an...

Herein, Vitamin E- PEG-Vitamin E triblock ‘ABA’ hydrogel, which is formed through physical cross-linking of flower-shaped micelles and can reside in vivo for>17 weeks, was employed for delivery of cancer preventive vaccines to provide sustained anticancer immunity. Mice vaccinated with hydrogel formulations produced a sign...

Dharmasaroja, Nattaphol Uransilp, Pritsana PiyabhanAbstractThe anatomic variation of Circle of Willis (CW) has been shown to have a great impact on its compensatory capacity during acute ischemic stroke. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effect of variations in CW on collateral circulation in patients with acute ischemic stroke who had major artery occlusion. Patients with acute ischemic stroke within 4.5 h of stroke onset who had at least moderate severity of stroke (NIHSS ≥ 6), caused by major...
