  • The study intends to examine the long-term effects of the replacement of UFH by LMWH (tinzaparin sodium) on cardio-vascular outcomes and on lipoprotein profiles in a large group of diabetic patients stable on HD. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Hemodialysed diabetic patients constitute a high-risk subset of patients for developing cardio-vascular disease, which accounts for nearly 50% of deaths. (bioportfolio.com)
  • After stratification for age, race and gender, cardio-vascular mortality is 10-20 times higher in these patients than in the general population. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Thus cardio-vascular risk factors in these patients should be managed early, aggressively and in a multi-factorial manner in order to reduce their high cardio-vascular morbidity and mortality. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Tinzaparin sodium is superior to UFH in terms of reducing the specified lipid parameters of stable diabetic patients on chronic hemodialysis. (bioportfolio.com)
  • Accordingly, the study will aim in enrolling 200 diabetic nephropathy patients, but allowing for a 10% drop-out rate, the number of evaluable patients in the study will be 180. (bioportfolio.com)
