Should we look beyond Kt/V urea in assessing dialysis adequacy?

Since the advent of maintenance dialysis therapy, our interpretation of what adequate dialysis really is has broadened and become more controversial. This is not only due to our changing and aging dia...

Klaus Apel (1942-2017): a pioneer of photosynthesis research.

We present here a Tribute to Klaus Apel (1942-2017), a photosynthesis pioneer-an authority on plant molecular genetics-in five parts. The first section is a prologue. The second section deals with a c...

Reflections on end-of-life dialysis.

The world population is aging and diseases such as diabetes mellitus and systemic arterial hypertension are increasing the risk of patients developing chronic kidney disease, leading to an increase in...

How Cryo-EM Became so Hot.

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the 2017 Nobel Prize for Chemistry to Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank, and Richard Henderson for "developing cryoelectron microscopy for the high-resoluti...

Life-extending enhancements and the narrative approach to personal identity.

Various debates on the desirability and rationality of life-extending enhancements have been pursued under the presupposition that a generic psychological theory of personal identity is correct. I her...

Clinical Trials [3248 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Frank Score and Coronary Artery Disease

Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. CAD was diagnosed by coronary angiography which also resulted Syntax score. Images of left and right ears were captured by a digi...

Designer Dialysis Peritoneal Dialysis

This study aims to use modified peritoneal dialysis prescriptions to achieve adequate clearance and volume removal while decreasing the number of exchanges or time spent on dialysis, evalu...

Intervention to Reduce Dietary Sodium in Hemodialysis

The purpose of this study is to test, in a randomized clinical trial of 200 hemodialysis patients, a behavioral intervention to reduce dietary sodium intake. The investigators will assess...

A Feasibility Study of Peritoneal Dialysis With CLS PD, Which Removes Toxins and Maintains a Stable Ultrafiltration by Continuously Regenerating a Recirculating Intraperitoneal Fluid, in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease, ESRD, With PD Therapy.

The study is a proof-of-concept of peritoneal dialysis with the Carry Life System for Peritoneal Dialysis (CLS PD). The extra-corporeally absorption of uremic toxins and certain ions from ...

Protein Supplementation In Dialysis Patients

The dialysis population has a strikingly high incidence of mortality. The life expectancy of chronic dialysis patients is 20 years less than that of the general population. Approximately 5...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.

Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.

The personal cost of acute or chronic disease. The cost to the patient may be an economic, social, or psychological cost or personal loss to self, family, or immediate community. The cost of illness may be reflected in absenteeism, productivity, response to treatment, peace of mind, QUALITY OF LIFE, etc. It differs from HEALTH CARE COSTS, meaning the societal cost of providing services related to the delivery of health care, rather than personal impact on individuals.

Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.

Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.
