We measured fetuin-A CPP levels, serum inflammatory markers [C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6, tumour necrosis factor-a], oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL), bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) and -7 (BMP-7) and aortic pulse wave velocity (APWV) in a cohort of 200 CKD patients. Serum measurements were also made in 78 healthy controls. CPP fetuin-A phosphorylation was characterized by phosphate-affinity gel chromatography
