Özet

Aims: Chronic kidney disease-mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) is a condition frequently observed in CKD. The search for a reliable and easy to use biomarker in the diagnosis of CKD-MBD is continuing. Tenascin-C (TN-C) is an important extracellular (ECM) protein synthesized by osteoblasts during bone growth and morphogenesis. The purpose of this study was to assess the relation between inflammation and MBD and TN-C in HD patients and to identify a new marker that can be used to help diagnose CKD-MBD.
