Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Apelin-13 is a biomarker that was shown to be related to cardiovascular disease risk in peritoneal dialysis patients. The aim of our study was to investigate the association of serum apelin-13 levels with inflammation, carotid artery intima media thickness (CIMT) and echocardiographic parameters in peritoneal dialysis patients.
