Calcitriol Started in the Donor, Expands the Population of CD4+CD25+ T Cells in Renal Transplant Recipients
Objectives: Alloreactive T cells recognize antigens via direct and indirect pathways. The competency of costimulatory molecules on antigen-presenting cells (APC) is important. An active form of vitamin D (1,25(OH)2D3, ...
Relationship of Serum Klotho Level With ACE Gene Polymorphism in Stable Kidney Allograft Recipients.
The kidney is the main source of serum Klotho production. Immunosuppressive agents could affect the kidney in this regard. The effect of the ACE gene polymorphism on Klotho production is a less studied area. This study ...

Prevalence and risk factors of hepatitis B infection among hemodialysis patients in Tabriz: a multicenter report.
Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is an important issue in hemodialysis. Risk factors and local prevalence varies between different regions. The current study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of HBV infection and ...
Effects of alpha lipoic acid supplementation on serum levels of IL-8 and TNF-? in patient with ESRD undergoing hemodialysis.
Chronic renal failure is a progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function, and the hemodialysis (HD) is one of the most common modalities in this regard. Oxidative stresses [like interleukin-8 (IL-8) and tumor necrosis ...
Renal artery stenosis in kidney transplants: assessment of the risk factors.
Transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) is an important cause of hypertension and renal allograft dysfunction occurring in kidney transplant recipients. However, conflicting predisposing risk factors for TRAS have been ...
Do mechanical fluid laws dictate the branching pattern of the renal artery?
Anatomy of the renal artery is an important issue in the renal transplantation era. Multi-detector computed tomography angiography (MDCTA) is an accurate modality for the preoperative assessment of live renal donors, and ...
Parvovirus B19 microepidemic in renal transplant recipients with thrombotic microangiopathy and allograft vasculitis.
Parvovirus B-19 (B-19) can lead to various clinical scenarios in renal transplant recipients. Here, we report a B-19 microepidemic that occurred between January and March 2007, involving renal transplant recipients from a ...
Hepatitis C virus genotypes in patients with end-stage renal disease in East Azerbaijan, Iran.
Information about the genotypes and associated risk factors in hepatitis C virus (HCV) infected patients in Iran is limited. The aim of this study was to identify the HCV genotypes and associated risk factors in a group ...
