  1. 1. Lipoprotein lipase in hemodialysis patients and healthy controls : effects of heparin

    Author : Birgit Näsström; Per-Ola Attman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : dalteparin; dialysis; lipoprotein metabolism; LMWH; LPL; triglycerides; UFH; uremia; medicinsk och fysiologisk kemi; Medical and Physiological Chemistry;

    Abstract : Mortality from cardiovascular disease in patients on chronic hemodialysis (HD) is 10 to 20 times greater than in the general population. One major risk factor is renal dyslipidemia, characterised by an impaired catabolism of triglyceride (TG)-rich lipoproteins with accumulation of atherogenic remnant particles. READ MORE

  2. 2. 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. Experimental studies of small intestinal permeability and function in uremia

    Author : Martin Magnusson; Anders Alvestrand; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The intestinal permeability has been investigated in experimental chronic and acute uremia in rats. The permeability and the mucosal ability to exclude larger molecules have been measured using differently sized polyethylene glycols (PEG 400 and 1000: mean weights of 400 and 1000 dalton, range 326-1162 dalton).
