Oral paricalcitol versus oral calcitriol in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism.
Summary of "Oral paricalcitol versus oral calcitriol in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients with secondary hyperparathyroidism."
Secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) is common in end-stage renal disease. Our primary objective was to evaluate the efficacy of oral paricalcitol versus oral calcitriol on serum intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and mineral bone parameters in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients with SHPT. The secondary objective was to analyze highly sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and peritoneal membrane function in both groups.

Secondary Hyperparathyroidism (SHPT) occurs in many patients with kidney disease and leads to bone disease. Active forms of vitamin D, calcitriol and paricalcitol, treat SHPT, but may have...
The objective of this study is to characterize the pharmacokinetic profile of ertapenem during continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD).
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of paricalcitol in moderate to severe SHPT subjects under hemodialysis who are calcitriol-resistant.
Patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) have a higher mortality rate than the general population, with cardiovascular disease (CVD) accounting for approximately 50% of deaths. Vascular...
