Unexpected and striking effect of heparin-free dialysis on cytokine release

Heparin (both unfractionated and low molecular weight) is not only a potent anticoagulant but also has many pleiotropic effects, some of which are mediated by cytokine release. We compared the effect of hemodialysis (HD) with enoxaparin as an anticoagulant and without systemic anticoagulation (heparin-grafted membrane—Evodial) on the release of monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 ...

The effect of nephrectomy on Klotho, FGF-23 and bone metabolism

Background Increased concentration of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF-23) and decreased levels of soluble Klotho (sKL) are linked to negative clinical outcomes among patients with chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury. Therefore, it is reasonable to hypothesize that GFR reduction caused by nephrectomy might alter mineral metabolism and induces adverse consequences. ...
