Circulating Endocannabinoids and Mortality in Hemodialysis Patients.

07:00 EST 14th January 2020 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Circulating Endocannabinoids and Mortality in Hemodialysis Patients."

Mortality in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) on maintenance hemodialysis (MHD) remains exceptionally high. While traditional risk factors such as obesity are paradoxically associated with better survival, nontraditional risk factors including cachexia increase the likelihood of poor outcomes. There is accumulating evidence that the endocannabinoid (ECB) system plays a major role in energy preservation and storage, factors which can prevent the deleterious effects of cachexia. Hence, in this study, we evaluated the association of circulating ECB levels with mortality in MHD patients.

Duration of Vascular Access Usage and Patient Survival in the First Year of Hemodialysis.

The central venous catheter (CVC) has been shown to increase mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients compared with the arteriovenous fistula (AVF). However, no study has examined the mortality of HD p...

Dysregulation of innate immunity has been proposed as an important contributing factor for advanced atherosclerosis and resultant high mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. To evaluate the long-ter...

Effects of sertraline in the prevention of low blood pressure in patients undergoing hemodialysis.

Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is a major complication of hemodialysis, with a prevalence of about 25% during hemodialysis sessions, causing increased morbidity and mortality.

Dietary intake as a predictor for all-cause mortality in hemodialysis subjects (NUGE-HD study).

This study aimed to identify the factors capable of mortality prediction in patients on hemodialysis, using a prospective cohort with three years of follow-up. We hypothesized that lack of clinical-me...

Gene Polymorphism of Taste Receptors and Circulating Endocannabinoids in Normal Weight and Obese Subjects

The study aims at evaluating in normal weight and obese subjects those factors such as taste sensitivity and circulating endocannabinoids in influencing dietary choice and thereby lipid an...

The Efficacy of Hemoperfusion Combined With Hemodialysis in Improving the Survival of MHD Patients

This multi-center, open-label, randomized, parallel group study aims to investigate the efficacy of hemoperfusion (HP) combined with hemodialysis (HD) by evaluating all-cause mortality and...

Effect of Increased Convective Clearance by On-Line Hemodiafiltration on All Cause Mortality in Chronic Hemodialysis Patients

The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of low flux hemodialysis with online hemodiafiltration on all cause mortality and a combination of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality...

Circulating P3NP and Cardiovascular Events in Hemodialysis Patients

This study evaluates whether circulating levels of aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) can predict the cardiovascular events in hemodialysis patients.

Survival Study in Patients Undergoing On-line Hemodiafiltration

Patients on hemodialysis will be randomly assigned (1:1) to continue on conventional hemodialysis or on-line hemodiafiltration, both three times per week. A 3 year follow-up and a sample s...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hospital units in which care is provided the hemodialysis patient. This includes hemodialysis centers in hospitals.

The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.

Long-term maintenance hemodialysis in the home.

The combination of hemodialysis and hemofiltration either simultaneously or sequentially. Convective transport (hemofiltration) may be better for removal of larger molecular weight substances and diffusive transport (hemodialysis) for smaller molecular weight solutes.

Carbonic acid calcium salt (CaCO3). An odorless, tasteless powder or crystal that occurs in nature. It is used therapeutically as a phosphate buffer in hemodialysis patients and as a calcium supplement.
