EKHA Article Focuses on Cardiovascular Risk for Kidney Patients

EKHA’s latest publication centres around the increased cardiovascular risk which those suffering from chronic kidney disease (CKD) face.

Writing in Nature Reviews Nephrology, Heidi Noels and colleagues consider how mechanisms that are uniquely associated with kidney disease partly drive an increased cardiovascular risk for patients with CKD compared with the general population.

In their article, the authors devote attention to oxidative stress and uraemic retention solutes and their link to the enhancement of non-enzymatic post-translational modification events. Such modifications can induce vascular damage, and this can contribute to CKD progression and/or increase cardiovascular risk in CKD patients.
