Apolipoprotein A polymorphysm predicts lipoprotein A concentration in renal transplant recipients
Increased serum lipoprotein(a) is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis in renal transplant recipients. Higher levels may be due to genetic factors, for example, apolipoprotein A isoforms and/or environmental ...
Findings of Doppler sonography do not correlate with serum lipoprotein and total homocysteine concentrations in renal transplant recipients
Atherosclerosis may be evaluated by structural or functional changes of the main arteries. We sought to investigate the probable associations of static and dynamic arterial changes with lipoprotein (a) and homocysteine ...
Serum sTWEAK and FGF-23 levels in hemodialysis and renal transplant patients
Background: Kidney transplantation is the treatment of choice for patients with end-stage renal disease. Objective: To evaluate the changes in serum soluble TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis (sTWEAK) and fibroblast growth ...
The effect of red grape seed extract on serum paraoxonase activity in patients with mild to moderate hyperlipidemia [O efeito do extrato de semente de uva vermelha na atividade do soro paraoxonase em doentes com hiperlipidemia leve a moderada]
CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Red grape seed extract (RGSE) contains oligomeric proanthocyanidin complexes as a class of flavonoids. These compounds are potent antioxidants and exert many health-promoting effects. This study aimed ...
