To determine the incidence of intradialytic hypertension (IDH) during hemodialysis (HD) in end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients using acetate dialysate compared to those using bicarbonate dialysate. This study was a double-blind cross-over randomized clinical trial. The effect of acetate and bicarbonate dialysate on blood pressure was analyzed in two consecutive HD sessions. The selected subjects were 41 stable ESRD patients scheduled for dialysis 2 times/week/from the HD unit of Dr.Soetom Hospital Surabaya, aged between 21-65 years old, with a hemoglobin level > or = 7 g/dL, serum albumin > or = 3 mg/dL and interdialytic weight gain < 4 Kg, and an average Qb 150-250 ml/minute. The dialysate sodium level was 138 mEq/L/ The study subjects were divided into tow groups: 21 patients in the group who received Acetate on the first session and Bicarbonate on the next (AB) and 20 patients in the group receiving Bicarbonate first (BA). Comparison of IDH during use of each dialysate was analyzed by Chi-Square and Mc Nemar Chi-Square test. No characteristic differences were found in both groups: HD duration (for AB) was 28.83 +/- 13.89 vs. 34.95 +/- 24.80 months (for BA) (p = 0.333); Age (for AB) was 47.61 +/- 9.49 vs. 47.75 +/- 11.80 ...Continue Reading

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.

Enzyme Evolution

This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Pharmacology of Proteinopathies

This feed focuses on the pharmacology of proteinopathies - diseases in which proteins abnormally aggregate (i.e. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, etc.). Discover the latest research in this field with this feed.

Alignment-free Sequence Analysis Tools

Alignment-free sequence analyses have been applied to problems ranging from whole-genome phylogeny to the classification of protein families, identification of horizontally transferred genes, and detection of recombined sequences. Here is the latest research.
