Elevated Serum Interleukin-18 Level is Correlated with Vascular Access Dysfunction in Patients on Maintenance Haemodialysis
Annals of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore
We evaluated the impact of serum interleukin-18 (IL-18) level on short-term vascular access (VA) function in chronic haemodialysis (HD) patients. Materials and Methods: Samples were collected from 80 clinically stable patients (58.8% were men) with a mean age of 60.9 years (standard deviation 11.7 years) who were undergoing maintenance HD and were followed up for 1 year. Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyse data on demographics, biochemical parameters and serum IL-18 level todoi:10.47102/annals-acadmedsg.2019239 fatcat:2x3m63onnvdnhb5x42syf57vxu
