Plasma Levels of Middle Molecules to Estimate Residual Kidney Function in Haemodialysis without Urine Collection
BACKGROUND: Residual Kidney Function (RKF) is associated with survival benefits in haemodialysis (HD) but is difficult to measure without urine collection. Middle molecules such as Cystatin C and β2-microglobulin accumulate ...
Thrice-weekly haemodialysis schedules have become the standard default haemodialysis prescription worldwide. Whereas the measurement of residual renal function is accepted practice for peritoneal dialysis patients and the ...
Endotoxemia in end-stage kidney disease
Chronic unexplained inflammation remains a prevalent and clinically significant problem for patients with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD), especially in the dialysis population. The causes of persistent inflammation are ...
Endotoxin detection in end-stage kidney disease
Aims: Endotoxin detection assays are not validated for use in end-stage kidney disease (ESKD). We investigated the accuracy and precision of the kinetic turbidimetric Limulus amoebocyte lysate (LAL) assay to detect endotoxin ...
