Effect of Malnutrition on the Prognosis in Hemodialysis Patients

Malnutrition is known to affect their prognosis in hemodialysis patients. Furthermore, recent studies indicate that malnutrition is associated with inflammation and atherosclerosis in these patients. In this study we examine the effect of malnutrition and/or inflammation on atherosclerosis and 5-year survival rate in 600 hemodialysis patients.

Environmental Exposure to Lead and Its Health Effects on Patients With Maintenance Hemodialysis

One thousand patients with LHD who have no history of exposure to lead will be observed for 18 months. Blood lead level(BLL), biochemical data, hemoglobin, albumin, Cr, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (HsCRP), and blood cell counts are assessed at baseline. The morbidity and mortality are recorded in detail. Then, one ...
