High ESA dose requirements are associated with adverse clinical outcomes, yet the mechanisms are uncertain, said Dr. Inrig, who reported findings here at the American Society of Nephrology's Renal Week conference.
Jula K. Inrig, MD, MPH, Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and collaborators studied 32 CKD patients receiving anemia treatment with darbepoetin alpha: 21 who were receiving usual doses (mean 49.7 mcg/week) and 11 who were receiving high doses (94.1 mcg/week). The patients in the two groups had similar baseline characteristics, although the high-dose group had lower three-month average hemoglobin levels.

The church called Dr. Gary Inrig to serve as Senior Pastor beginning in September, 1992. When Gary & Elizabeth Inrig came to Trinity Church, the congregation was dreaming of having their own facilities. Gary led us through the first of several building projects. Our first Sunday services in our own Worship Center on Reservoir Road was held on December 18, 1994. With a new permanent home, ministries began to flourish and multiply.
Gary Inrig brings wonderful breadth, depth, and balance to a very difficult subject: forgiveness. As one 83-year-old theologian, Rev. Herb VanderLugt, says, "This is the best book on the subject I have ever read." Whether it's living forgiven, learning to forgive, what to do when an offender refuses to request forgiveness, whether we're asking, giving, or waiting for forgiveness, this book covers the subject with Inrig's on-the-mark illustrations and solid biblical teaching. It is impossible to exaggerate the importance of the subject of forgiveness to the Christian faith. If the Bible makes it clear that Christians are forgiven people, it also makes it clear that we are to be forgiving people. How and when do we do that? What does it look like?
