Nutritional Status and Mortality Predictability for Time-Varying Serum Alkaline Phosphatase in Hemodialysis Patients: A Longitudinal Study
Higher serum alkaline phosphatase (sALP) levels associate with a poor prognosis in maintenance hemodialysis patients. However, little is known about the meaning of lower sALP in this population. We hypothesized that lower sALP concentrations may express nutritional status and survival accordingly.

This study examined the association between oBPs and all‐cause mortality in G3B‐5D CKD. This is a population‐based cohort study including all subjects with an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)
Authors: Somji SS, Ruggajo P, Moledina S Abstract The worldwide prevalence of maintenance hemodialysis continues to rise. An adequate delivery of hemodialysis dose as measured by Kt/V or urea reduction ratio is a crucial determinant of clinical outcome for chronic hemodialysis patients. The aim of this study was to assess the adequacy of hemodialysis and its associated factors among patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis in Dar es Salaam. This was a cross-sectional study done on patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis in four dialysis centers in Dar es Salaam. Sociodemographic information and treatment character...
Authors: Medeiros MC, Rocha N, Bandeira E, Dantas I, Chaves C, Oliveira M, Bandeira F Abstract Sclerostin (Scl) is an osteoblast-inhibiting glycoprotein that is secreted mainly by osteocytes and is regulated by hormonal changes and skeletal loading. Decreased physical function and high serum Scl concentrations have been reported in chronic renal failure patients but little is known to date about the differences between diabetic and non-diabetic patients on hemodialysis who are susceptible to both sarcopenia and bone fragility. Objective.To determine the prevalence of sarcopenia and its association with serum Scl co...
