Urine albumin to creatinine ratio (UACR) is a useful predictor of cardiovascular (CV) events in adults. Its relationship to vascular function in children is not clear.
The usage of urine protein/creatinine ratio to estimate daily urine protein excretion is prevalent, but relatively little attention has been paid to the influence of urine concentration and its impact...
Renal clearance function and urinary albumin excretion are important markers for diabetic nephropathy. We assessed whether the creatinine clearance rate (CCR) and daily urinary albumin (DUA) excretion...
Serum uric acid (UA) has been associated with metabolic syndrome (MetS) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR). We questioned whether UA and ACR are associated in pre-metabolic individuals, and whet...
Microalbuminuria is an early sign of kidney damage. The prevalence of microalbuminuria in Singapore has been reported to be 36.0%-48.5%. However, the prevalence of microalbuminuria reported in these s...
The purpose of this study is to compare if the combination of valsartan 320 mg/lisinopril 20 mg versus the monotherapies of lisinopril 40 mg or valsartan 320 mg will result in a greater de...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of MT-3995 in subjects with diabetic nephropathy, compared with placebo, using urine albumin- to-creatinine ratio (UACR) in the first ...
Continous infusion of nor adrenaline + albumin Continous infusion of terlipressin + albumin Response will assessed at every 48 hour (i) Complete response: Decrease in serum creatinine to 1...
The measurement of 24-hour proteinuria allows an assessment of treatment response in patients with multiple myeloma. But it is difficult and restrictive to make. This study was therefore ...
The investigators intend to perform a large prospective study looking at the predictability of the random urine protein-to-creatinine ratio compared to the gold standard 24-hour urine prot...
A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).
An amino acid that occurs in vertebrate tissues and in urine. In muscle tissue, creatine generally occurs as phosphocreatine. Creatine is excreted as CREATININE in the urine.
Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.
The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.
The ratio of the number of conceptions (CONCEPTION) including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; and fetal losses, to the mean number of females of reproductive age in a population during a set time period.
Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) Erectile Dysfunction Urology Urology is the branch of medicine concerned with the urinary tract and diseases that affect it. Examples include urethritis, urethrostenosis and incontinence. Urology is a su...
