A New Anticoagulation Method Using Dalteparin in Quotidian and Nocturnal Home Hemodialysis Patients

2015-11-17 21:08:22 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates the optimal dosage and safety of Dalteparin when used as an anticoagulant for hemodialysis therapies.


Routine anticoagulation is required during hemodialysis treatments. In North America, the anticoagulant of choice for hemodialysis therapies is unfractionated heparin (UFH), whereas in Western Europe, it is low molecular weight heparin (LMWH). Dalteparin is more commonly used in Canada and has been approved for use in the in-centre thrice-weekly hemodialysis population at a fixed dose of 5000 units. However, there have been no published studies to assess the use of dalteparin in home quotidian and/or nocturnal hemodialysis therapies. Patients on frequent hemodialysis or nocturnal hemodialysis in the home will be converted to Dalteparin from Heparin for 4 weeks to evaluate the optimal dosage and to assess its safety in this population

Progressive kidney failure in chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia: don't forget lysozyme damage.

Kidney failure is common in haematologic malignancies. However, the nephrotoxic effect of lysozyme is seldom recognized. We present a 78-year-old male with chronic myelomonocytic leukaemia who develop...

(Pro)renin Receptor Blockade Ameliorates Heart Failure Caused by Chronic Kidney Disease.

The (pro)renin receptor [(P)RR)] is involved in the activation of local renin-angiotensin system and subsequent development of cardiovascular disease. We investigated the therapeutic effect of a (P)RR...

Going from acute to chronic kidney injury with FoxO3.

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is one of the most important risk factors for chronic and progressive kidney disease, leading to end-stage kidney failure. Tubule epithelial regeneration leads to the resolut...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

A complication of kidney diseases characterized by cell death involving KIDNEY PAPILLA in the KIDNEY MEDULLA. Damages to this area may hinder the kidney to concentrate urine resulting in POLYURIA. Sloughed off necrotic tissue may block KIDNEY PELVIS or URETER. Necrosis of multiple renal papillae can lead to KIDNEY FAILURE.

The end-stage of CHRONIC RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. It is characterized by the severe irreversible kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and the reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE to less than 15 ml per min (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002). These patients generally require HEMODIALYSIS or KIDNEY TRANSPLANTATION.

Acute kidney failure resulting from destruction of EPITHELIAL CELLS of the KIDNEY TUBULES. It is commonly attributed to exposure to toxic agents or renal ISCHEMIA following severe TRAUMA.

Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level for more than three months. Chronic kidney insufficiency is classified by five stages according to the decline in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE and the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA). The most severe form is the end-stage renal disease (CHRONIC KIDNEY FAILURE). (Kidney Foundation: Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative, 2002)
