The expression of ILK and ILK mRNA was significantly correlated with 24-h urine protein excretion,serum creatinine levels,the number of tubu- lointerstitial infiltrated mononuclear cells,the number of smooth muscle cells(SMC)in vascular wall and the extent of interstitial fibrosis.
Methods The KT/V,the clearance of blood urea nitrogen(BUN),serum creatinine(Scr),serum uric acid(UA)β2-Microglobulin(β2-M),rate of dialysis complications in 20 cases of ESRD patienes treated with HDF for 240 times were compared to those with hemodialysis(HD),22 cases for 740 times.
Methods: CRF with high-grade proteinuria was induced by supplying HPD in five sixth nephrectomy rats,and the changes of serum creatinine(Scr),blood urea nitrogen(BUN),endothelin-1(ET-1),thromboxane B2(TXB2) and 6-keto-prostaglandin Flα(6-Keto-PGFlα) were observed.
The results were shown that retinol-binding protein (RBP) was more sensitive than serum Cr to reflect renal function. One month postoperation, the uric RBP value less than 10% of original value, in one or more DR matched patients, was 9 of 11;
The mean percentage of interstitial area was found to correlate with urinary protein excretion, serum creatinine level, the course of the disease and the degree of interstitial infiltration of CD4 + and CD8 + cells.
Forty eight hours after the procedure, serum creatinine level was slightly elevated (176±21 μmol/L before versus 179±11 μmol/L after, P=0.15), but significantly decreased at 6 months′ follow-up(149±15 μmol/L, P<0.001).
Methods 82 MHD patients and 80 healthy volunteers were involved in this study. The levels of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy),CRP,serum creatine (Scr),blood urea nitrogen (BUN),total cholesterol(TC),and albumin (Alb) were determined in 82 MHD cases,tHcy and CRP were determined in 80 healthy controls.
Results: There was no significant difference in mean serum creatinine on day 3 and gas discharge time in patients with v-v bypass or not.
58 outpatients with a serum creatinine between 6-10 mg/dl received a low protein diet (LPD) with 30 g protein/day, supplemented with essential amino acids (EAA) or their keto analogues (KA).
Data from the HDFP study showed that patients with a serum creatinine concentration >amp;gt; 1.5 mg/dl had a profoundly higher risk of cardiovascular disease than patients with creatinine values below this value.
The components of the electrically elicited blink reflex were investigated in 15 patients who were admitted to a chronic dialysis program because of chronic renal insufficiency with serum creatinine concentrations from 6.0 to 14.2 mg/dl.
The most common CsA side effects were: a serum creatinine increase that occurred in the first 6- 12 months of therapy in 8 patients, other side effects like hypertrichosis and gingival hyperplasia were present in four patients.
Blood pressure and serum Cr were measured before operation and 15, 30, 60, 120 days after 5/6 nephrectomy.
The results showed that blood pressure and serum Cr were increased significantly 15 days after 5/6 nephrectomy (bothP>amp;lt;0.01), and the hypertension and azomia existed constantly till 120 days but had no significant fluctuation.
The serum Cr levels in the stone-forming groups were significantly higher than those in the control group except for the group EG+L-hydroxyproline, group calcium gluconate and group oxalate.
The study involved a questionnaire as well as biochemical tests which included serum Cr and other selected trace metals.
The results showed that every patient who received TPN had an increased serum Cr level; some increases were up to 50-fold above the normal reference level for serum Cr.
Serum creatine kinase (CK), perceived delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS), and maximal quadriceps isometric force (MIF) were determined before exercise and 24, 48, and 72 h after exercise.
The activity of serum creatine phosphokinase greatly increased after the reperfusion, and this increase was significantly suppressed by Nisoldipine.
The effect of hydrocortisone on the serum creatine kinase activity of muscles diseases
Intravenous administration of a single dose of hydrocortisone to patients with the Duchenne type of progressive muscular dystrophy, carriers of Duchenne dystrophy gene caused a short-lasting rise of the serum creatine kinase activity.
Only the knee jerks were diminished, the calves hypertrophic, and the serum creatine kinase level very high in one case, and there were neurogenic electromyographic abnormalities in the quadriceps.
