Cardiorenal syndrome (CRS) remains a global health burden with a lack of definitive and effective treatment. Protein-bound uremic toxin (PBUT) overload has been identified as a non-traditional risk factor for cardiac, renal and vascular dysfunction due to significant albumin-binding properties, rendering these solutes non-dialyzable upon the state of irreversible kidney dysfunction. Although limited, experimental studies have investigated possible mechanisms in PBUT-mediated cardiac, renal and vascular effects. The ultimate aim is to identify relevant and efficacious targets that may translate beneficial outcomes in disease models and eventually in the clinic. This review will expand on deta..
