Abstract

Background: Pregnancy-associated plasma protein A (PAPP-A) was recently described as a new marker of cardiovascular events and of inflammation in uremic patients. The aim of this study was to determine levels of PAPP-A in chronic dialysis patients and its possible relationships with renal osteodystrophy.
