Renal transplantation is now recognized as a treatment of choice for patients with chronic renal failure with end-stage renal disease. Renal transplantations are associated with better quality of life, better cost/benefit ratio, and possibly longer survival. Significant changes in blood pressure are common throughout the surgical procedure for kidney transplantation. All efforts are made to maintain an appropriate level of blood pressure by using an adequate intravascular volume and vasopressor administration.

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of dopamine and norepinephrine, two commonly used vasopressor agents, in the treatment of shock.
This study was designed to assess the effect of adding dopamine infusion in addition to restrictive hydration combined with noradrenaline infusion on intraoperative serum lactate levels as...
Donor pre-treatment with dopamine reduces injury to the kidney graft with consequences on the clinical performance immediately after transplantation: Donor dopamine reduces the requirement...
We are performing a prospective, randomized, controlled trial of dopamine versus norepinephrine for septic shock. The trial will enroll patients with suspected or documented site of infect...
Relationships between altered prefrontal cortical dopamine, norepinephrine and some cognitive impairments of schizophrenia supports and approach for pharmacological remediation of cognitiv...
Comparison of Pre- and Post-transplant Parathyroidectomy in Renal Transplant Recipients and the Impact of Parathyroidectomy Timing on Calcium Metabolism and Renal Allograft Function: A Retrospective Single-Center Analysis.
The effect of parathyroidectomy (PTx) timing on serum calcium (Ca) levels and renal functions in renal transplant recipients with severe hyperparathyroidism (HPT) remains unclear. We retrospectively a...
In heart failure (HF), increases in renal sympathetic nerve activity (RSNA), renal norepinephrine spillover and renin release cause renal vasoconstriction, which may contribute to the cardiorenal synd...
Renal transplant is the gold standard treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease. Employment after transplant is an important marker of recovery and a key component of general well-being with...
: Narcolepsy is a chronic disabling condition, excessive daytime somnolence is the main symptoms of it. There is currently no cure for narcolepsy, and hence there is a great need for new treatment opt...
Tacrolimus extended-release (TAC-ER; Astagraf XL ) is utilized in many immunosuppressive regimens post-renal transplantation. Current dosing recommendation for the TAC-ER in renal transplant is 0.15 -...
One of the catecholamine NEUROTRANSMITTERS in the brain. It is derived from TYROSINE and is the precursor to NOREPINEPHRINE and EPINEPHRINE. Dopamine is a major transmitter in the extrapyramidal system of the brain, and important in regulating movement. A family of receptors (RECEPTORS, DOPAMINE) mediate its action.
A picolinic acid derivative isolated from various Fusarium species. It has been proposed for a variety of therapeutic applications but is primarily used as a research tool. Its mechanisms of action are poorly understood. It probably inhibits DOPAMINE BETA-HYDROXYLASE, the enzyme that converts dopamine to norepinephrine. It may also have other actions, including the inhibition of cell proliferation and DNA synthesis.
An essential aromatic amino acid that is a precursor of MELANIN; DOPAMINE; noradrenalin (NOREPINEPHRINE), and THYROXINE.
The N-demethylated derivative of the antipsychotic agent LOXAPINE that works by blocking the reuptake of norepinephrine, serotonin, or both. It also blocks dopamine receptors.
Drugs that bind to but do not activate DOPAMINE RECEPTORS, thereby blocking the actions of dopamine or exogenous agonists. Many drugs used in the treatment of psychotic disorders (ANTIPSYCHOTIC AGENTS) are dopamine antagonists, although their therapeutic effects may be due to long-term adjustments of the brain rather than to the acute effects of blocking dopamine receptors. Dopamine antagonists have been used for several other clinical purposes including as ANTIEMETICS, in the treatment of Tourette syndrome, and for hiccup. Dopamine receptor blockade is associated with NEUROLEPTIC MALIGNANT SYNDROME.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
