07/01/2009 - "Patients with biopsy-proven MN, nephrotic-range proteinuria and clearance of creatinine 50 ml/min or more were included in the study. "
07/01/1994 - "The study subjects comprised 13 patients with biopsy-proven renal disease, a diastolic blood pressure of > 90 mmHg, creatinine clearance of > 60 ml/min and stable proteinuria of > 2.0 g/day. "
06/01/2015 - "The treatment outcome was assessed using proteinuria-based criteria; i.e., complete remission (CR) was defined as urinary protein level of <0.3 g/day or g/g Cr, and incomplete remission type I (ICR-I) was defined as urinary protein level of <1.0-0.3 g/day or g/g Cr, and renal dysfunction was defined as a serum creatinine (Cr) level of 1.5 times the baseline level. "
05/01/2015 - "Similar results were obtained in multivariate analysis: Baseline creatinine elevation (OR 3.62, 95 % CI, 1.59-8.23; p = 0.002) and 24-h proteinuria greater than 1500 mg (OR 3.62, 95 % CI, 1.29-10.13; p = 0.014) were independent predictors of failure to achieve partial or complete remission. "
05/01/2015 - "Elevated creatinine (p = 0.0001) and 24-h proteinuria greater than 1500 mg (p = 0.0011) were basal predictors of failure to attain partial or complete remission by bivariate analysis. "
|2.||Renal Insufficiency (Renal Failure)
01/01/2007 - "The main outcome was the frequency of prescription of LMWHs for curative treatment in patients with severe renal insufficiency, defined as having a creatinine clearance of <or=30 mL/min, estimated using the Cockroft formula. "
06/01/1998 - "Renal failure responded favorably over weeks to corticosteroid therapy (serum creatinine level, 2.8 mg/dL) with a marked reduction in bilateral renal enlargement by CT scan."
07/01/2015 - "In this pilot study of patients with moderate renal insufficiency undergoing cardiac catheterization, with-holding ACEI/ARB resulted in a non-significant reduction in contrast-induced AKI and a significant reduction in post-procedural rise of creatinine. "
05/01/2014 - "No significant differences between MMF and AZA were found in sustained remission, relapse, renal failure, creatinine increase or death. "
01/01/2010 - "Furthermore, due to reduced muscle mass, older subjects frequently have depressed glomerular filtration rate despite normal serum creatinine, and such a concealed renal insufficiency may impact significantly the clearance of hydrosoluble drugs. "
|3.||Body Weight (Weight, Body)
11/01/2011 - "The most popular recommended formulas are the simple Cockcroft-Gault equation, which is inaccurate and biased, as it calculates clearance of creatinine in proportion to body weight, and the MDRD equation, which is more accurate, but systematically underestimates normal and high GFR, being established by a statistical analysis of results from renal-insufficient patients. "
05/01/1987 - "Measured CLcr values ranged from 29.8 to 197 mL/min in group 1 and from 2.8 to 118 mL/min in group 2. Ranges of SCr values were 0.7-1.5 mg/dL (mean, 1.1) in group 1 and 1.6-7.1 mg/dL (mean, 2.8) in group 2; the formula of Cockcroft and Gault, which uses age, body weight, and SCr, had the highest correlation and the greatest accuracy in group 1, whereas the formula of Jelliffe, which uses body surface area and SCr, had the highest correlation and the greatest accuracy in group 2. Estimation of creatinine clearance can be improved by identification and use of the formula that is best suited to a specific patient population."
03/31/1998 - "The loss of body weight was accompanied by a marked decrease in plasma creatinine. "
07/01/2004 - "The suppression of body weight gain and reduction of creatinine clearance were significantly greater with the 20:00h than 08:00h treatment. "
06/01/2004 - "Patients with creatinine less than 1 mg/dl had significantly greater increase in body weight (at 3 and 6 months) as well as crown-heel length (at 3 and 9 months), respectively (p <0.05). "
|4.||Chronic Kidney Failure (Chronic Renal Failure)
01/01/2008 - "By multivariate analysis, age and serum creatinine at biopsy inversely correlated with complete remission, and serum creatinine at biopsy was the only correlate with ESRD. "
03/01/2005 - "Because their frequency plot of creatinine clearance (Ccr) assumed a bimodal distribution with a marked kurtosis that was not improved by transformations, the study cohort was decomposed into two separate groups (non-ESRD [n = 247] and ESRD [n = 159]) in which the Ccr plots were normally distributed. "
08/01/2004 - "In the multivariate analysis, risk factors of developing ESRD were failure to achieve complete remission, higher serum creatinine at the initiation of treatment, and not receiving CYC pulse therapy. "
10/01/2001 - "Both trials showed a significant reduction in the primary pre-specified end-point of death, or worsening of renal function (doubling of serum creatinine) or the development of end-stage renal disease. "
12/01/2014 - "In pre-end-stage renal disease patients, regularly monitoring BP by integrating cloud-based manometers appears to result in a significant decrease in creatinine and improvement in nighttime BP control. "
|5.||Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)
01/01/1979 - "In most patients with essential hypertension and serum creatinine levels below 300 mumol/l, renal function could be maintained or improved when antihypertensive treatment was instituted, whereas progression of the renal damage was seen in those with serum creatinine levels above 300 mumol/l in spite of antihypertensive treatment with 3 or more drugs. "
12/01/2015 - "These two groups (improved vs. not improved) differed significantly in mean age at intervention (40.6 vs. 58.3 years), duration of hypertension (3.1 vs. 15.4 years), systolic blood pressure (150.4 mmHg vs. 162.1 mmHg), diastolic blood pressure (86.4 mmHg vs. 95.7 mmHg), number of anti-hypertensive medications (2.2 vs. 3.0), serum creatinine (0.82 vs. 1.45), and renal resistive index (0.59 vs. 0.74) prior to intervention. "
07/01/2005 - "Fifty-two patients underwent invasive treatment (21 PTA, 10 PTAS and 21 surgery) after which hypertension and creatinine significantly improved. "
02/15/2003 - "Univariate analysis of risk factors showed a significant reduction of graft survival in recipients transplanted with kidneys coming from donors older than 60 years, donors with a history of hypertension, a cerebrovascular cause of death, and a preharvesting serum creatinine greater than 150 micromol/L. "
06/01/1980 - "Cases with a severe reduction in kidney function (less than 30 ml/min/kidney creatinine clearance) showed a significant increase in creatinine clearance with a 90% improvement in and 36% cure of hypertension, after reconstruction. "
