The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a single haemodialysis (HD) session on serum fetuin-A levels, considered a negative acute phase response marker; moreover, we evaluated the behaviour of fibrinogen and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) as acute phase response and chronic/subclinical inflammation markers, respectively, after a single HD session. Serum fetuin-A, albumin, hsCRP and fibrinogen were measured in 72 patients before and after a single HD session. After a single HD session, we observed a significant increase in fibrinogen levels, while fetuin-A levels decreased (p<0.05). Also, hsCRP levels were significantly increased. The significant decrease of fetuin-A levels after a single HD session is consistent with the hypothesis of HD-induced inflammation; activated acute phase response and fetuin-A deficiency might account for increased cardiovascular risk and accelerated atherogenesis in dialysis patients.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a single haemodialysis (HD) session on serum fetuin-A levels, considered a negative acute phase response marker; moreover, we evaluated the behaviour of fibrinogen and high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) as acute phase response and chronic/subclinical inflammation markers, respectively, after a single HD session. Serum fetuin-A, albumin, hsCRP and fibrinogen were measured in 72 patients before and after a single HD session. After a single HD session, we observed a significant increase in fibrinogen levels, while fetuin-A levels decreased (p<0.05). Also, hsCRP levels were significantly increased. The significant decrease of fetuin-A levels after a single HD session is consistent with the hypothesis of HD-induced inflammation; activated acute phase response and fetuin-A deficiency might account for increased cardiovascular risk and accelerated atherogenesis in dialysis patients.
