    1. How many patients do we need for a clinical trial? Demystifying sample size calculations (pages 725–731)

      PATRICK J KELLY, ANGELA C WEBSTER and JONATHAN C CRAIG

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01432.x

      Calculating the correct sample size can be challenging. This paper focuses on sample size calculations for hypothesis tests.

    2. How to design a randomized controlled trial (pages 732–739)

      SANKAR D NAVANEETHAN, SUETONIA C PALMER, ALICIA SMITH, DAVID W JOHNSON and GIOVANNI FM STRIPPOLI

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01428.x

      Randomized controlled trials are the ideal study design to answer clinical questions about health-care interventions. This article describes the steps required to design a randomized controlled trial.

    3. How to conduct a randomized trial (pages 740–746)

      ALICIA SMITH, SUETONIA PALMER, DAVID W JOHNSON, SANKAR NAVANEETHAN, MIRIAM VALENTINI and GIOVANNI FM STRIPPOLI

      Version of Record online: 22 DEC 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01433.x

      Clinical trials require extensive management and coordination in order to provide appropriate answers to clinical questions about health-care practices and to comply with the standards of good clinical practice. This article describes the steps required to conduct a randomized controlled trial.

      Relationships between glomerular immunoglobulin deposition patterns and clinical or pathological findings in immunoglobulin A nephropathy were examined in this study of 384 immunoglobulin A nephropathy patients

    1. Thiol levels, protein carbonylation and anaerobic sulfur metabolism in erythrocytes of peritoneal dialysis and predialysis patients (pages 755–761)

      Version of Record online: 18 MAY 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01353.x

      This manuscript details the sulfur metabolism of erythrocytes in patients with chronic kidney disease and on peritoneal dialysis to explore why there are reduced anti-oxidant defence mechanisms in these patients. In patients with CKD there were lower levels of sulfane sulfur, non-protein thiols, total thiols and 3-mercaptopyruvate sulfotransferase activity in erythrocytes compared with both healthy controls and CAPD patients.

    1. Benefit and cost from the long-term use of cyclosporine-A in idiopathic membranous nephropathy (pages 762–767)

      PANTELITSA KALLIAKMANI, ELENI KOUTROULIA, FLORENTIA SOTSIOU, JOHN G VLACHOJANNIS and DIMITRIOS S GOUMENOS

      Version of Record online: 5 MAR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01301.x

      Small doses of cyclosporine A with prednisolone was found effective in inducing the remission of nephrotic syndrome in this study. However, significant deterioration of histological lesions is observed in repeat renal biopsies even in patients having remission of nephrotic syndrome, suggesting its long-term use should be examined very cautiously.

    1. Clinical usefulness of serum cystatin C and the pertinent estimation of glomerular filtration rate based on cystatin C (pages 768–776)

      RAN-HUI CHA, CHUNG SIK LEE, YOUN-HEE LIM, HO KIM, SEUNG HWAN LEE, KYUNG SANG YU and YON SU KIM

      Version of Record online: 29 APR 2010 | DOI: 10.1111/j.1440-1797.2010.01344.x

      Serum cystatin C more sensitively differentiates the stages of chronic kidney disease (defined by inulin clearance) than serum creatinine in a population of 119 Korean subjects. The investigators also developed new cystatin C-based equations for estimating glomerular filtration rate.
