BACKGROUND: Kidney transplantation has been recognized as the best renal replacement therapy option for people with end stage renal disease. With an estimated 170,000 people waiting for a kidney transplant around the world and a limited supply of donor organs, the waiting time is often prolonged for many years. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this review was to examine the existing evidence of patients' experiences of living on dialysis and waiting for a renal transplant from a deceased donor.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The Comprehensive Dialysis Study (CDS) aimed to understand factors contributing to physical, functional, and nutritional health status among patients starting dialysis.

In cases of glaucoma with elevated intra ocular pressure, the first objective of treatment is its reduction and normalization. In cases when excessive pressure has resulted in a loss of vision, the aim of treatment is to attenuate the pain and to improve the comfort of the patient. This paper presents a case of glaucoma secondary to anterior uveitis, resistant to pharmacological treatment. A gonioscopic examination in both eyes revealed a narrowed filtration angle. An ophthalmoscopic examination of the fundus showed partial retinal detachment.
OBJECTIVES: The bioavailability of dietary iron present in a nutritional formulation may be evaluated by in vitro and in vivo methods since they provide for a cohesive line study and provided in the literature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the bioavailability of iron targeting a comparative analysis of two nutritional supplement formulations (A and B). METHODS: For this study were using in vitro and in vivo methods, both described in the literature for availability of iron in an enteral feeding after ingestion supplement nutrition with much nutrients.
