Greater decline in glomerular filtration rate for warfarin versus dabigatran etexilate among atrial fibrillation patients.
Study findings show that contrast dosing is only a minor contributor to the overall burden of AKI.
In a study, the incidence of hyperphosphatemia, ionized hypocalcemia, and ionized hypercalcemia was 44%, 22%, and 23%, respectively.
AKI developed in bodybuilders who injected anabolic steroids and ingested commercial protein and creatine products.
In a study of high-risk PCa patients, the statin-metformin combo was associated with a 43% reduction in risk compared with non-use of the medications.
The combination improved oncologic control better than dose-escalated radiotherapy alone in men with intermediate-risk prostate cancer.
The association is particularly pronounced in younger patients with higher levels of proteinuria.
Their risk of a stroke was 46% lower than that of dialysis patients.
