To investigate the effect of septoplasty in patients with nasal septum deviation (NSD) on erythropoietin (EPO) and hemoglobin (Hgb) levels.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The Journal of craniofacial surgery
Septoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Nevertheless, septoplasty under pure local anesthesia is also feasible and it shows a great potential for f...
Effect of achieved hemoglobin level on renal outcome in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients receiving epoetin beta pegol: MIRcerA CLinical Evidence on Renal Survival in CKD patients with renal anemia (MIRACLE-CKD Study).
Previous randomized-controlled trials have shown that targeting higher hemoglobin (Hb) levels using high dose of ESA in non-dialysis chronic kidney disease (NDCKD) patients resulted in poorer cardiova...
Cardiac surgery in Jehovah's witnesses is challenging due to their refusal of blood transfusion. Furthermore, dialysis patients often suffer from anemia and are also prone to bleeding. We performed of...
We test the hypothesis that low hemoglobin levels are associated with acute seizures following aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH).
The association of the difference in hemoglobin levels before and after hemodialysis with the risk of 1-year mortality in patients undergoing hemodialysis. Results from a nationwide cohort study of the Japanese Renal Data Registry.
Few clinical studies have directly examined the associations of hemoglobin (Hb) levels after hemodialysis (HD) and of the difference in Hb levels before and after HD (ΔHb) with patient outcomes. The ...
To assess the change in hemoglobin levels when iron sucrose was added to a regimen of weekly, fixed doses of erythropoietin in patients who had or had not responded to erythropoietin thera...
In this study the investigators aim to assess whether endoscopic septoplasty is effective at improving patients QOL and reducing postoperative signs and complications. Primary outcome: To...
Patients who are admitted to subacute rehabilitation facilities following hospitalization are frequently anemic. The purpose of this study is to see if anemic patients treated with erythr...
This study will examine the use of hydroxyurea and erythropoietin for treating sickle cell disease in patients who also have kidney disease or pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure i...
To study the cost utility analysis of Erythropoietin (EPO) for maintaining the different hemoglobin (Hb) target levels in anemic hemodialysis patient in routine clinical practice.
Products of non-enzymatic reactions between GLUCOSE and HEMOGLOBIN A, occurring as a minor fraction of the hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes. Hemoglobin A1c is hemoglobin A with glucose covalently bound to the terminal VALINE of the beta chain. Glycated hemoglobin A is used as an index of the average blood sugar level over a lifetime of erythrocytes.
Cell surface proteins that bind erythropoietin with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells.
The major component of hemoglobin in the fetus. This HEMOGLOBIN has two alpha and two gamma polypeptide subunits in comparison to normal adult hemoglobin, which has two alpha and two beta polypeptide subunits. Fetal hemoglobin concentrations can be elevated (usually above 0.5%) in children and adults affected by LEUKEMIA and several types of ANEMIA.
ERYTHROPOIETIN prepared by recombinant DNA technology.
This recombinant erythropoietin, a 165-amino acid glycoprotein (about 62% protein and 38% carbohydrate), regulates red blood cell production. Epoetin alfa is produced by Chinese hamster ovary cells into which the human erythropoietin gene has been inserted. (USP Dictionary of USAN and International Drug Names, 1996).
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
