Levels of Antioxidant Activity and Fluoride Content in Coffee Infusions of Arabica, Robusta and Green Coffee Beans in According to their Brewing Methods

Coffee is a rich source of dietary antioxidants, and this property links with the fact that coffee is one of the world’s most popular beverages. Moreover, it is a source of macro- and microelements, including fluoride. The aim of this work was to determine antioxidant activity of coffee beverages and fluoride content depending on different coffee species and conditions of brewing. ...

Macro- and Microelement Content and Other Properties of Chaenomeles japonica L. Fruit and Protective Effects of Its Aqueous Extract on Hepatocyte Metabolism

This growing interest in the cultivation of Japanese quince Chaenomeles japonica L. results from the potentially beneficial properties of its fruit. Fresh fruits are very firm and too acidic to eat raw, but their bioactive components, distinctive aroma, and high amount of dietary fiber make the fruits well suited for industrial processing. However, not all the properties of the ...

Cardiovascular risk in chronic kidney disease patients: intima-media thickness predicts the incidence and severity of histologically assessed medial calcification in radial arteries

Background The objective of the study was to determine the relationship between common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT) and histologically assessed calcification of radial artery in relation to clinical features and laboratory markers of bone and mineral metabolism, inflammation, and oxidative stress in patients with stage 5 chronic kidney disease (CKD). Methods The ...

DIALYSIS CARDIOVASCULAR COMPLICATIONS 1

Introduction and Aims: Premature cardiovascular disease limits the quality and length of life on long-term haemodialysis. The epidemiology of cardiovascular events in this context needs to be better defined and more effective management strategies developed. Adjudicated cardiovascular event data collected during the Evaluation of Cinacalcet HCl Therapy to Lower Cardiovascular ...

Changes in common carotid artery intima-media thickness over 1 year in patients on peritoneal dialysis

Background. Accelerated atherosclerosis and vascular calcifications increase cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients on dialysis. Common carotid artery (CCA) intima-media thickness (IMT) is considered useful for imaging atherosclerosis non-invasively. Since chronic inflammation may accelerate atherosclerosis in end-stage renal disease patients, the aim of this 1 year ...

TRANSPLANTATION BASIC SCIENCE, ALLOGENIC AND XENOGENIC TOLERANCE

Introduction and Aims: IgA nephropathy, the most common primary glomerulonephritis worldwide, can lead to end-stage renal disease and kidney transplantation. Disease recurrence frequently occurs after transplantation. We investigated the predictive value of three markers including galactose-deficient (Gd) IgA1, IgG anti-IgA autoantibodies, IgA-soluble (s) CD89 complexes for IgA ...

Cardiovascular complications in CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the attainment of KDIGO suggestions for mineral and bone disorder (MBD) markers and the presence of various ankle brachial systolic pressure index (ABI) levels in our hemodialysis (HD) patients. Methods: In a cross-sectional study we analyzed 137 patients (85 male; mean age 55.8±14.2 years) ...

Cardiovascular complications in CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are extensively used for the chronic treatment of common gastrointestinal disorders. Chronic PPI use is associated with increased risk of fractures. The primary endpoint was the extent of aortic and iliac calcifications, in relation to PPI use. Methods: Multicenter, cross-sectional study in hemodialysis patients, 18 hospital ...
