Project: Vitamin K deficiency and Vasculas Calcifiation in Chronic Kidney Disease
PI: Jürgen Floege, Joachim Jankowski
Patients with CKD have VitK deficiency, which increases the risk of develop vascular calcification, but the reason of this deficiency is still unknown. In my project I am looking for the possible mechanism of this deficiency and furthermore looking for new mediator of vascular calcification.
