- Major determinants of hyperhomocysteinemia in peritoneal dialysis patients. Vychytil, Andreas; Födinger, Manuela; Wölfl, Gabriele; Enzenberger, Brigitte; Auinger, Martin; Prischl, Friedrich; Buxbaum, Martina; Wiesholzer, Martin; Mannhalter, Christine; Hörl, Walter H.; Sunder-Plassmann, Gere // Kidney International;Jun1998, Vol. 53 Issue 6, p1775
Major determinants of hyperhomocysteinemia in peritoneal dialysis patients. The mechanisms leading to elevated total homocysteine concentrations in peritoneal dialysis patients are only partially understood. We show that a common polymorphism in the 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase...
