The article presents various studies related to nephrology. These studies include the relationship between cardiac output and access flow during hemodialysis, the down-regulation of intrarenal neuronal nitric oxide synthase in the 5/6 nephrectomized rat and factors affecting the rate of progressive renal decline.

    The effect of head-out water immersion (HWI) in decompensated cirrhotic patients to correct sodium and water excretion has been found to be incomplete and variable. The explanation may be that the efficacy of HWI in correcting a decreased effective arterial blood volume (EABV) in decompensated...

    Maple syrup urine disease (MSUD, MIM 248600) can be complicated by metabolic crises necessitating extracorporeal removal therapy (ECRT). Since leucine levels are usually not immediately available during therapy, an accurate kinetic model of leucine plasma levels during removal would be useful to...

    Creatine supplementation does not decrease total plasma homocysteine in chronic hemodialysis patients.Background. Hyperhomocysteinemia is present in the majority of chronic hemodialysis patients. Treatment with folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin B6 cannot fully normalize plasma homocysteine...
