Serum Uric Acid and Progression of Kidney Disease: A Longitudinal Analysis and Mini-Review

Background Increasing evidence supports the association between hyperuricemia and incident chronic kidney disease (CKD); however, there are conflicting data regarding the role of hyperuricemia in the progression of CKD. This study retrospectively assessed the longitudinal association between uric acid (UA) level and CKD progression in a Chinese population lived in Taiwan. Methods...

Factors associated with serum fetuin-A concentrations after long-term use of different phosphate binders in hemodialysis patients

Background Fetuin-A is known as a circulating inhibitor of vascular calcification. Factors associated with serum fetuin-A concentrations after long-term use of different phosphate binders in hemodialysis patients is still uncertain. Methods In the post-hoc study, we analyzed serum fetuin-A and biochemical factors (Ca, P, i-PTH, hsCRP, TG, LDL-C) in 50 hemodialysis patients, who...

Extreme Levels of HbA1c Increase Incident ESRD Risk in Chinese Patients with Type 2 Diabetes: Competing Risk Analysis in National Cohort of Taiwan Diabetes Study

Background Whether HbA1c is a predictor of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in type 2 diabetes patients remains unclear. This study evaluated relationship between HbA1c and ESRD in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes. Methods Patients aged ≥ 30 years who were free of ESRD (n = 51 681) were included from National Diabetes Care Management Program from 2002–2003. Extended Cox...

Comparing Risk of New Onset Diabetes Mellitus in Chronic Kidney Disease Patients Receiving Peritoneal Dialysis and Hemodialysis Using Propensity Score Matching

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients are at risk for developing new-onset diabetes mellitus (NODM) even after hemodialysis (HD) and peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. It is not clear if the incidence for NODM is different in CKD patients receiving HD and PD. This study compared the risk of NODM in PD patients and HD patients. Methods All HD and PD patients in Taiwan Renal...

Peptic Ulcer Disease Risk in Chronic Kidney Disease: Ten-Year Incidence, Ulcer Location, and Ulcerogenic Effect of Medications

Objectives We aimed at determining peptic ulcer disease (PUD) incidence among chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients during 1998–2008, compared to patients without CKD, and at examining associations between CKD and PUD. Methods Data for 1998–2008 were extracted from the National Health Insurance Research Database in Taiwan. The annual PUD incidence (cases per thousand persons per...

Sex Differences in the Development of Malignancies among End-Stage Renal Disease Patients: A Nationwide Population-Based Follow-Up Study in Taiwan

Increasing evidence indicates that end-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with the morbidity of cancer. However, whether different dialysis modality and sex effect modify the cancer risks in ESRD patients remains unclear. A total of 3,570 newly diagnosed ESRD patients and 14,280 controls matched for age, sex, index month, and index year were recruited from the National...

The risk for chronic kidney disease in patients with heart diseases: a 7-year follow-up in a cohort study in Taiwan

BackgroundThe worldwide increasing trend of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is of great concern and the role of heart disease deserves longitudinal studies. This study investigated the risk of developing CKD among patients with heart diseases.MethodsFrom universal insurance claims data in Taiwan, we retrospectively identified a cohort of 26005 patients with newly diagnosed heart...

Effectiveness of Influenza Vaccination in Patients with End-Stage Renal Disease Receiving Hemodialysis: A Population-Based Study

Background Little is known on the effectiveness of influenza vaccine in ESRD patients. This study compared the incidence of hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD) between cohorts with and without influenza vaccination. Methods We used the insurance claims data from 1998 to 2009 in Taiwan to determine the...

Association of response to hepatitis B vaccination and survival in dialysis patients

Background The status of immunocompromised patients is well recognized in end stage renal disease (ESRD). As described recently, this acquired immune dysfunction in the uremic milieu may be one of the main pathogenic factors for mortality in ESRD. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the immune response following a hepatitis B vaccination (HBV...

Outcome of atrial fibrillation among patients with end-stage renal disease

Background. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients are more at risk for atrial fibrillation (AF) than the general population. However, the prognosis in ESRD patients with paroxysmal AF (PaAF), permanent AF (PAF) and paroxysmal AF transformed to permanent AF (TAF) is unknown. Methods. In this retrospective longitudinal study, all ESRD patients with PaAF, PAF and TAF between...

Acupuncture in haemodialysis patients at the Quchi (LI11) acupoint for refractory uraemic pruritus

Background. Uraemic pruritus is a common problem in end-stage renal failure patients. Traditional therapies produce marginal or no results. Acupuncture has been reported to be effective. The aim of this randomized, controlled study was to validate a single acupoint for relieving uraemic pruritus.

Does hepatitis C virus affect the reactivation of hepatitis B virus following renal transplantation?

Background. Hepatitis B virus (HBV) is endemic in Taiwan. Transplantation followed by long-term immunosuppressive medications may precipitate HBV reactivation. Interference of hepatitis C virus (HCV) with HBV gene expression and replication has been confirmed in many studies involving non-transplant populations. This study investigates the incidence of HBV reactivation following...

PERITONEAL DIALYSIS 2

Introduction and Aims: New ‘biocompatible’ dialysis solutions have been developed in order to prevent the alterations of the peritoneal membrane, and prolong the duration of the treatment with peritoneal dialysis. However, most of the experimental studies investigating the effects of new solutions have been done in animal models with normal kidney function, whereas the clinical...
