  2. 2. Erythropoiesis in anemia of rencl failure and malignancy : Studies on erythropoietin, iron, and transferrin receptor : by Soheir Beshara

    Author : Soheir Beshara; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; erythropoiesis; anemia; renal transplantation; prostatic adenocarcinoma; erythropoietin; transferrin receptor; hemorheology positron emission tomography; iron hydroxide sucrose; pharmacokinetics; iron deficiency; 52Fe; 59Fe; red cell utilization; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Erythropoietin (Epo) and iron are essential requirements for erythropoiesis. Serum transferrin receptor (S-TfR) is a marker of total erythropoiesis and tissue iron availability. In patients with renal insufficiency, successful renal transplantation leads to correction of anemia and improvement in erythropoiesis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Endothelium-Dependent Vasodilation and Oxidative Stress in Chronic Renal Failure

    Author : Margus Annuk; Ola Samuelson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; endothelium; oxidative stress; chronic renal failure; L-arginine; diclofenac; erythropoietin; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Internal Medicine; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the major cause of death in patients with chronic renal failure (CRF). Endothelial function and oxidative stress (OS) have previously been shown to be important in the pathogenesis of CVD. In this thesis, the endothelium-dependent vasodilatation (EDV) and OS were investigated in the patients with CRF. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on treatment of renal anemia in patients on chronic hemodialysis

    Author : Bergur V. Stefánsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : hemodialysis; IV iron; oxidative stress; erythropoietin; hepcidin;

    Abstract : In patients with chronic kidney disease, treatment with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESA) effectively corrects anemia. Most of these patients also need supplementation with regular iron injections to secure iron availability for proper erythropoiesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effects of iron supplementation on iron status, health and neurological development in marginally low birth weight infants

    Author : Staffan Berglund; Magnus Domellöf; Olle Hernell; Michael K Georgieff; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Auditory brainstem response; behavior; breast feeding; cognition; erythropoietin; ferritin; growth; hemoglobin; hepcidin; human infant; iron; iron deficiency; iron deficiency anemia; iron status; iron supplementation; low birth weight; morbidity; neurodevelopment; nutritional requirements; randomized controlled trial; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    Abstract : Background Due to small iron stores and rapid growth during the first months of life, infants with low birth weight (LBW) are at risk of iron deficiency (ID). ID in infancy is associated with irreversible impaired neurodevelopment. READ MORE
