The aim of this double-blind randomized clinical trial is to determine the effects of isoflavones on serum concentrations of fructoseamine and advanced glycated end products in peritoneal dialysis patients. Forty-four patients from shafa clinic will randomly assign to either isoflavone or placebo group. The patients in isoflavone group will receive 100 mg soy isoflavone (as 2 capsules) daily for 8 weeks, while the placebo group will receive identical placebo. At the baseline and the end of the study,7 ml blood will be collected from each patient after a 12-14-hours fasting and serum concentrations of fructoseamine, carboxymethyl lysine, pentosidine, glucose will be measured. Furthermore, blood pressure measurements will be performed twice with a ten-minute interval between testing

The aim of this double-blind randomized clinical trial is to determine the effects of isoflavones on cardiovascular disease risk factors, bone metabolism markers, serum concentrations of f...
The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficiency of an adapted and "alternate" peritoneal dialysis scheme in terms of sodium extraction and purification compared to an adapted conven...
This study aims to use modified peritoneal dialysis prescriptions to achieve adequate clearance and volume removal while decreasing the number of exchanges or time spent on dialysis, evalu...
Ability and sensitivity of metabolomics analysis to highlight biomarkers or a score of biomarkers that will be able to identify those pediatric patients on peritoneal dialysis at high risk...
A Feasibility Study of Peritoneal Dialysis With CLS PD, Which Removes Toxins and Maintains a Stable Ultrafiltration by Continuously Regenerating a Recirculating Intraperitoneal Fluid, in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease, ESRD, With PD Therapy.
The study is a proof-of-concept of peritoneal dialysis with the Carry Life System for Peritoneal Dialysis (CLS PD). The extra-corporeally absorption of uremic toxins and certain ions from ...
Hypertension is common in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients and associated with adverse outcomes. Besides solute clearance, PD convective clearance is used to control extracellular water (ECW) volume ...
Dialysis has been associated with increased complication rates following total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The current literature on this issue is limited and does not di...
Our objective was to assess whether clusters of centers with similar peritoneal dialysis (PD) catheter related practices were associated with differences in the risk of technique failure.
An elevation in serum chromium levels in individuals treated with renal replacement therapy has been previously described, but chromium levels have not been systematically studied in patients treated ...
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
