From: Factors associated with serum fetuin-A concentrations after long-term use of different phosphate binders in hemodialysis patients

  Fetuin-A: Coefficient ρ (P)
Sevelamer or not −0.135 (0.350)
Vitamin D or not 0.017 (0.908)
LCB or not 0.115 (0.425)
Δ Ca −0.230 (0.040*)
Δ P −0.091 (0.531)
Δ iPTH 0.306 (0.031*)
Δ ALK-P 0.145 (0.314)
Δ hsCRP −0.085 (0.558)
Δ Albumin 0.408 (0.003*)
Δ TG −0.113 (0.434)
Δ LDL-C 0.132 (0.363)
  1. Δ Fetuin-A: the change in serum Fetuin-A concentration
  2. Vitamin D: active vitamin D, either alfacalcidol or calcitriol
  3. LCB: low calcium bath (Ca 2.5 meq/L); non-LCB: Ca 3.0 meq/L or 3.5 meq/L
  4. P < 0.05*
