Vascular calcification and 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in non-dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease stages 4 and 5

Background. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients. Vascular calcification is highly prevalent in this population and is an independent predictor of cardiovascular mortality. Vascular calcification in uraemic patients is known to be an active and regulated process subject to the action of many promoting and inhibitory ...

Socio-personal factors influencing public attitude towards living donation in south-eastern Spain

Objectives. Our aim was to determine public attitudes towards living donation compared with cadaveric donation, and to analyse psycho-social factors that may influence this attitude. Materials and methods. An opinion poll was used to study a random sample in two geographical areas (urban and rural). Assessment was made of attitudes towards donation of one's own organs as a living ...

Association between phosphate removal and markers of bone turnover in haemodialysis patients

Background. As the main mineral reservoir, bone acts as a calcium (Ca) and phosphate buffering system. Accordingly, phosphate removal by haemodialysis (HD) might be theoretically influenced by bone turnover, as well as by the interaction of regulatory molecules, such as PTH and osteoprotegerin (OPG). The present study investigated the relationship between these variables and ...

Socio-personal profile of teenagers opposed to organ donation

Background. The teenage population has a more favourable attitude towards organ donation than other population groups. Teenagers represent the future of the community and their opinion directly affects other family members and friends. Therefore, teenagers who are in favour of donation become promoters of organ donation in their area of influence. Our aim was to determine the ...

Vascular involvement and cell damage in experimental AA and clinical β2‐microglobulin amyloidosis

Background. Amyloidosis is a highly prevalent disease characterized by the deposition of amyloid fibrils. Although several types of amyloidosis can be identified according to their protein constituents and suggest putative aetiological factors, the causes of amyloidosis remain unknown. Furthermore, the cellular participation and the ultrastructural particularities of amyloidosis ...

Mineral and bone disease - CKD 5D

Introduction and Aims: In Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral and Bone Disorder (CKD-MBD) patients, most treatment decisions concerning vitamin D use, administration of calcimimetics and parathyroidectomy are guided by parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. The quality of the PTH test has been judged of paramount importance. Various fully automated assays are currently available, measuring ...

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 ...
