Recombinant Human Erythropoietin Dose, Serum Adiponectin, and All-Cause Mortality in Patients Beginning Hemodialysis

2010-07-15 17:00:00 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Decreased body fat mass, possibly mediated through the effects of elevated serum adiponectin levels, may be associated with requirements for higher recombinant human erythropoietin doses and a subsequent worse prognosis in patients beginning hemodialysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

Solutions prepared for hemodialysis. The composition of the pre-dialysis solution may be varied in order to determine the effect of solvated metabolites on anoxia, malnutrition, acid-base balance, etc. Of principal interest are the effect of the choice of buffers (e.g., acetate or carbonate), the addition of cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+), and addition of carbohydrates (glucose).

Extracorporeal ultrafiltration technique without hemodialysis for treatment of fluid overload and electrolyte disturbances affecting renal, cardiac, or pulmonary function.
