Calcium flux during hemodialysis

R S GoldsmithW F Taylor


A system of equations has been derived, and examined, to decribed membrane permeability and calcium fluxes within a commonly used hemodialyzer, the Mini-Kiil. By a statistical technique of sequential multiple regression analysis, factors which might influence these variables were tested on data derived from 74 hemodialysis periods in 5 patients. Calcium flux from plasma to dialysate was influenced positively by dialysate calcium concentration and plasma volume flow and negatively by dialysate volume flow. Calcium flux from dialysate to plasma was influenced positively by dialysate calcium concentration and plasma volume flow and negatively by plasma phosphate concentration. Net calcium flux from dialysate to plasma was influenced positively by the calcium gradient (dialysate calcium minus plasma ultrafiltrable calcium) and plasma volume flow and negatively by plasma phosphate concentration (coefficient of multiple correlation =0.970). Because of the magnitude of regression coefficients, manipulations of the dialysate calcium concentration and plasma phosphate concentration were concluded to be the most practical means of adjusting calcium delivery during dialysis.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
