Summary of "Comparison of zinc acetate hydrate and polaprezinc for zinc deficiency in patients on maintenance hemodialysis: A single-center, open-label, prospective randomized study."

The efficacy and safety of zinc acetate hydrate (ZAH) for zinc supplementation in patients on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) remains unknown. In this prospective, single-center, open-label, parallel-group trial for MHD patients with serum zinc level <70 μg/dL, we compared ZAH (zinc; 50 mg/day) and polaprezinc (PPZ; zinc; 34 mg/day) beyond 6-month administration in a 1:1 randomization manner. The ZAH and PPZ groups had 44 and 47 patients, respectively. At 3 months, the change rate of serum zinc levels in the ZAH group was significantly higher than that in the PPZ group. Three months after the study, serum copper levels significantly decreased in the ZAH group, and not in the PPZ group. No significant differences were noted in anemia management in both groups. ZAH was superior to PPZ in increasing serum zinc levels. Clinicians should note the stronger decline in serum copper levels when using ZAH for MHD patients. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A ZINC metalloenzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a methyl group from BETAINE to HOMOCYSTEINE to produce dimethylglycine and METHIONINE, respectively. This enzyme is a member of a family of ZINC-dependent METHYLTRANSFERASES that use THIOLS or selenols as methyl acceptors.

EXOPEPTIDASES which use a metal such as ZINC in the catalytic mechanism.

ENDOPEPTIDASES which use a metal such as ZINC in the catalytic mechanism.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Proteases which use a metal, normally ZINC, in the catalytic mechanism. This group of enzymes is inactivated by metal CHELATORS.
