ISTANBUL, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The congress of the ERA-EDTA (European Renal Association - European Dialysis and Transplant Association) is the biggest congress in Europe on nephrology and renal replacement therapy. Nearly 10,000 participants are in Istanbul to share their knowledge and discuss the latest research findings. New pioneering studies have been presented:
/ (1) Gupta, A et al. "SOLUBLE FERRIC PYROPHOSPHATE (SFP) ADMINISTERED VIA HEMODIALYSATE REDUCES ESA USE"
By SFP-iron administration, the ESA dose could be reduced by 35% while maintaining stable Hb levels. There were no SFP-related adverse effects and no cases of iron overload.
(2) Van Eps , C. "THE EFFECTS OF TOPICAL ANTIBACTERIAL HONEY ON CATHETER-RELATED INFECTIONS IN PERITONEAL DIALYSISPATIENTS "
The honey-containing wound gel was not superior to mupirocin application for the prophylaxis of PD catheter-associated infections.
(3) Striker, GE et al. "RESTORATION OF REPRESSED ESTROGEN RECEPTOR α (ERα) AND ANTI-OXIDANT LEVELS IN WOMEN AND MEN WITHDIABETIC KIDNEY DISEASE (DKD): POSSIBLE CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE (CVD) BENEFITS"
In response to treatment with Sevelamer there was significant upregulation of oestrogen receptor alpha (ERα); the known effect of this is a reduction of oxidative stress and inflammation. As a consequence, inflammatory markers and antioxidant levels also improved during treatment.
(4) März, W et al. "PROGNOSTIC EFFECT OF HIGH DENSITY LIPOPROTEIN CHOLESTEROL AND APOLIPOPROTEINS A1, A2, AND C3 INDIABETIC PATIENTS ON HEMODIALYSIS"
The results revealed no association between HDL, apolipoprotein A1 and C3 concentrations and cardiovascular events. In contrast, high apolipoprotein A2 concentrations were associated with a lower cardiovascular risk and might possibly be as outcome ma
