Expertises

Clinical research in chronic kidney disease, particularly vascular calcification and cardiovascular disease.

Main research areas

The effect of  magnesium on vascular calcification, cardiovascular disease and disease progression in chronic kidney disease.

Current research

1) Multi-centre randomised placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial examining the effect of magnesium supplementation on vascular calcification in subjects with pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease.

2) Single-center randomised placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial examining the effect of increasing the magnesium concentration in dialysate on serum calcification propensity in subjects with end-stage renal disease treated with haemodialysis.

3) Single-centre randomised placebo-controlled double-blind clinical trial examining the effect of magnesium supplementation on oral glucose tolerance test in non-diabetic kidney transplant recipients immediately after kidney transplantation.

Potential conflicts of interest
