Conventional peritoneal dialysis fluids (PDFs) lead to formation of advanced glycation end-products (AGE) in the peritoneal membrane. In this study, we investigated in vitro the dependence of AGE formation on regular changes of PDFs, as performed during continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), and on the contribution of high glucose concentration(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are formed during the nonenzymatic reaction of sugars with proteins. Conventional peritoneal dialysis fluids (PDFs) lead to the formation of AGEs in the peritoneal membrane that are associated with histopathologic changes and loss of ultrafiltration. PDFs may cause AGE formation because of a high glucose concentration(More)
The production of alcoholic beverages such as Tequila, Mezcal, whiskey, or beer includes the fermentation of a mash containing Maillard reaction products. Because excessive heating of the mash can lead to complications during the following fermentation step, the impact of Maillard products on the metabolism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae was investigated. For(More)
Conventional fluids for peritoneal dialysis (PD) contain reactive glucose degradation products (GDPs) as a result of glucose breakdown during heat-sterilization. GDPs in PD fluids (PDFs) have been associated with the progressive alteration of the peritoneal membrane during long-term PD by cytotoxic effects and formation of advanced glycation endproducts(More)
OBJECTIVE 3-Deoxyglucosone (3-DG) and acetaldehyde were found to be the major reactive carbonyl compounds in conventional heat-sterilized peritoneal dialysis fluids (PDFs). The aim of this study was to identify factors in the production of PDFs promoting or inhibiting the formation of acetaldehyde and 3-DG. DESIGN Single-chamber bag PDFs with different(More)
