Summary of "NT-proBNP in the Prognosis of Death or Need for Renal Replacement Therapy in Patients with Stage 3-5 Chronic Kidney Disease."

The risk of cardiovascular (CV) complications is much greater in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). The aim of this study was to assess predictors of mortality, renal failure progression, and the need for dialysis in patients with CKD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedures which temporarily or permanently remedy insufficient cleansing of body fluids by the kidneys.

Therapeutic replacement or supplementation of defective or missing enzymes to alleviate the effects of the enzyme deficiency (e.g., GLUCOSYLCERAMIDASE replacement for GAUCHER DISEASE).

The prototypical uricosuric agent. It inhibits the renal excretion of organic anions and reduces tubular reabsorption of urate. Probenecid has also been used to treat patients with renal impairment, and, because it reduces the renal tubular excretion of other drugs, has been used as an adjunct to antibacterial therapy.

A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.

Assistance in managing and monitoring drug therapy for patients receiving treatment for cancer or chronic conditions such as asthma and diabetes, consulting with patients and their families on the proper use of medication; conducting wellness and disease prevention programs to improve public health; overseeing medication use in a variety of settings.
