Abstract

Chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients are at a significantly higher risk of atherosclerotic complications when compared to normal population. In this study, baseline serum concentrations of CRP and PAPP-A were significantly higher in HD patients than in healthy controls. This is in accordance with our previous results and suggests chronic inflammation and increased cardiovascular risk in HD patients.
