Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Association of matrix metalloproteinases with atherosclerosis in patients with chronic kidney disease [ Time Frame: two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Matrix metalloproteinases associated with atherosclerosis in chronic kidney disease;patients with diabetes mellitus type 2 and others with chronic glomerulonephritis.Serum levels of MMPs-2 and -9 are measured by an ELISA system.Intima Media Thickness(IMT) of carotid and femoral arteries is measured with a high resolution ultrasonography.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Matrix metalloproteinases and atherosclerosis associated with pro-inflammatory and oxidative stress markers in chronic kidney disease [ Time Frame: two years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Matrix metalloproteinases associated with atherosclerosis markers,pro-inflammatory markers and markers of oxidative stress in chronic kidney disease

Detailed Description:

The purpose of this study is to determine the correlation of matrix metalloproteinases and atherosclerosis of chronic kidney disease. Patients with diabetes mellitus type 2,as a non-inflammatory leading cause of end stage renal failure and patients with chronic glomerulonephritis and similar course of proteinuria,as an inflammatory leading cause of end stage renal failure are enrolled.
