  1. 1. Glucose degradation products in patients on hemodialysis : interventional studies

    Author : Bernd Ramsauer; Bernd Stegmayr; Henrik Hadimeri; Bengt Lindholm; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Hemodialysis; advanced glycation end products; skin autofluorescence; plasma autofluorescence; glucose degradation products;

    Abstract : Hemodialysis (HD) is the most frequently used treatment for end-stage renal disease. Despite all efforts to improve the outcomes, the mortality of patients on HD is still high, and this especially is related to cardiovascular diseases (CVD). READ MORE

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Haemodialysis Treatment Monitored On-line by Ultra Violet Absorbance

    Author : Fredrik Uhlin; Lars-Göran Lindberg; Martin Magnusson; Bernd Stegmayr; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dialysis; Hemodialysis; Proteins; Metabolism; Renal dialysis; Ultraviolet spectrophotometry; Urea; Uremia; Kidney diseases; Njursjukdomar;

    Abstract : This thesis describes and evaluates an optical method utilizing ultra violet (UV) absorbance for on-line monitoring of haemodialysis treatment. Increased efficiency of haemodialysis treatment is considered to correlate to decreased morbidity and mortality when urea clearance (Kt/V) is elevated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of renal dysfunction on serum Prostate-Specific Antigen

    Author : Laila Bruun; Internmedicin - epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Urologi; hK2; Urology; intra-individual variation; elimination; peritoneal dialysis; renal dysfunction; kidney transplantation; hemodialysis; nefrologi; nephrology; PSA;

    Abstract : Measurement of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in blood is an important tool in detection for prostate cancer. PSA occurs in several molecular forms in blood: mainly as a free form with a molecular mass of 28 kDa; and as PSA complexed to alpha-1-antichymotrypsin, complexed PSA, with a molecular mass of 90 kDa.

  5. 5. Influence of bone-associated and cardiovascular biomarkers on vascular events and mortality in relation to renal dysfunction

    Author : Ping-Hsun Wu; Östen Ljunggren; Bengt Fellström; Torbjörn Linde; Jonas Spaak; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; biomarkers; bone markers; cardiovascular markers; proteomics; vascular event; mortality; renal function; hemodialysis; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Biomarkers can help physicians identify subjects with an increased cardiovascular risk. Apart from the clinical factors, some biomarkers have been recognized as important predictors and risk factors for cardiovascular disease in renal disease. READ MORE
