Whether the renal function influences the association between antiphosphatidylserine antibodies (aPS) and prognosis of ischemic stroke remains unclear. We aimed to investigate the prognostic value of aPS after ischemic stroke stratified by renal function status.

Changes in renal function have been associated with differential outcome in patients with acute heart failure (HF). However, individual trajectories of changes in renal function are unknown and it is ...
Antiphospholipid activity was reported to be increased in depressive patients, while the impact of antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLs) on post-stroke depression (PSD) is unclear. We aimed to investigat...
Antiphosphatidylserine/prothrombin complex (aPS/PT) antibodies are recognized as a marker for antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Dense and poorly lysable fibrin clots occur in thrombotic APS. Compact cl...
The ability of most biomarkers, such as N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), to predict prognosis in heart failure can be affected by the state of renal function; therefore, there is...
Pauci-immune glomerulonephritis (PIGN) is a major prognostic factor in antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies-associated vasculitis (AAV). Renal remission is usually defined as improvement or stabiliza...
Our first aim is to describe how common a sudden decrease in renal function happens in infants in a neonatal intensive care unit. We also want to see how a sudden loss of renal function a...
The anti-hinge region antibodies would be a relevant biomarker of IgA nephropathy. Beyond a prognostic value (which could increase the risk of Renal Absolute), the longitudinal monitoring ...
The purpose of this study is to determine if administration of rituximab blocks the development of donor specific antibodies (DSA) in transplant recipients who have developed renal dysfunc...
Our standard immunosuppressive treatment after renal transplantation is a combination of tacrolimus, mycophenolate mofetil, and prednisolone. With this regimen the incidence of acute rejec...
The aim of this study was to verify the prognostic value of functional kidney biomarkers on survival and renal function recovery in cardiac surgery patients with acute kidney injury.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
Conditions in which the function of KIDNEYS deteriorates suddenly in a matter of days or even hours. It is characterized by the sudden drop in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE; (GMR). The most severe stage is when the GFR drops below 15 ml per min (ACUTE KIDNEY FAILURE).
B-cells that have a role in regulating the immune response including the production of CYTOKINES. This function is in addition to their traditional role in making antibodies.
A tetradecapeptide originally obtained from the skins of toads Bombina bombina and B. variegata. It is also an endogenous neurotransmitter in many animals including mammals. Bombesin affects vascular and other smooth muscle, gastric secretion, and renal circulation and function.
A class of statistical procedures for estimating the survival function (function of time, starting with a population 100% well at a given time and providing the percentage of the population still well at later times). The survival analysis is then used for making inferences about the effects of treatments, prognostic factors, exposures, and other covariates on the function.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
