Özet

Background: The chronic kidney disease (CKD)-mineral and bone disorder (MBD) syndrome is an important contributor to the CKD-associated cardiovascular disease and high mortality rates. Sclerostin, a protein synthesized in osteocytes, is a potent downregulator of bone metabolism and a novel candidate for the bone-vascular axis in CKD patients. We tested whether serum sclerostin values are predictive for all-cause mortality and cardiovascular events (CVEs) in a CKD population.
