  1. Inflammation, proteolysis and IL-1beta receptor inhibition in CHD patients
    ADRIANA HUNG; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..Chronic inflammation is commonly seen in dialysis patients and has been linked to uremic wasting. We want to test if reducing inflammation with an anti-inflammatory treatment will reduce muscle loss in dialysis patients. ..
