Vascular Calcification: Mechanism of stimulation by CKD.
Effects of CKD on vascular smooth cell phenotype and vascular calcification
The CKD-MBD (Renal Osteodystrophy/Osteoporosis)
Pathogenesis of the CKD-MBD
The effects of of CKD on osteoblast function. Relationship of vascular calcification and bone formation in CKD.
Mechanisms of BMP-7 therapy for vascular calcification
Will BMP-7 treat rather than prevent vascular calcification? (see figure to right) Will BMP-7 increase GFR in severe kidney failure?
New Therapies for Chronic Kidney Disease
