To improve solute removal efficiency, several types of dialyzers with enhanced internal filtration were introduced for clinical application. In these dialyzers, enhanced internal filtration increased convective transport of the solute, in addition to diffusive transport. In this study, the effects of internal filtration on solute removal efficiency were(More)
Continuous recirculating peritoneal dialysis (CRPD) was introduced to enhance solute removal efficiency in conventional peritoneal dialysis (PD) therapies such as continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). In CRPD, a portion of the dwell dialysate in the patient's peritoneal cavity is drained through a double-lumen catheter and purified by an(More)
The prevalence of antihepatitis virus C (HCV) antibodies in chronic hemodialysis (HD) patients is higher than in normal populations, and yet hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is infrequent in chronic HD patients who are HCV antibody positive. In this study, we investigated the characteristics of HCV-antibody-positive patients with HCC on chronic HD. A total of(More)
Renal replacement therapy with dialyzers capable of enhanced internal filtration (IF) can be an alternative to standard hemodiafiltration, as it provides convective solute removal comparable to that of hemodiafiltration by a simple procedure. In this study, we clinically evaluated the effect of the hollow fiber length in the dialyzer, a crucial factor(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated the safety and feasibility of sorafenib in patients with end-stage renal disease undergoing hemodialysis by examining the influence of pharmacokinetic parameters to their benefit and also the occurrence of drug-related adverse events of sorafenib. METHODS Ten patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma undergoing hemodialysis(More)
In order to improve solute removal efficiency, several types of dialyzers with enhanced internal filtration (IF) were introduced for clinical applications. In these dialyzers, enhanced IF increased convective transport of the solute in addition to diffusive transport. Internal filtration-enhanced hemodialysis (IFEHD) defined as hemodialysis therapy using(More)
Internal filtration/backfiltration (IF/BF) of a dialyzer depends on several parameters. This study evaluated the effect of the blood flow rate (Q B) on the internal filtration flow rate (Q IF) measured using Doppler ultrasonography for a high-flux dialyzer with a polysulfone membrane, APS-15E. In an in vitro study, bovine blood was circulated through the(More)
ABH-F and ABH-P have been developed for hemodiafiltration (HDF) therapy. In this study, we evaluated the solute removal characteristics of the hemodiafilters in a bovine blood in vitro study. The hemodiafilters were examined for 120 min at various filtration flow rates (Q F) (31.2–250 mL/min) under a constant blood flow rate of 250 mL/min and constant(More)
To study the removability of pro-inflammatory cytokines by hemofiltration (HF), we performed experimental HF with various high-flux membranes (HFM) using a closed circuit system filled with monocyte-free human plasma, which contained TNFalpha, IL-1beta, and IL-6. Plasma and filtrate samples were taken before and 1, 2, 3, and 4 hours after the initiation of(More)
