Effect of monophosphoryl lipid A on the in vitro function of peritoneal leukocytes from uremic patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
TLDR
Peritoneal leukocyte dysfunction observed in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis and who have high rates of peritonitis may be alleviated, to some degree, by MPL, without directly inducing a potentially deleterious fibrotic lesion. Expand
Peritoneal dialysis fluid (PDF) C++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 modulate peritoneal macrophage (PM0) antimicrobial activity in CAPD patients.
TLDR
In vivo results confirm the importance of Ca++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 in PMO antibacterial functions in CAPD patients and may be useful in the prophylaxis and therapy of peritonitis. Expand
Intraperitoneal verapamil therapy in CAPD patients with peritoneal hypopermeability. Effects on ultrafiltration.
TLDR
In conclusion, IP verapamil can be considered a suitable therapy for increasing UF volume in CAPD patients with peritoneal hypopermeability due to a lymphomonokine-mediated hyperproliferation ofperitoneal fibroblasts. Expand
Effect of monophosphoryl lipid A (MPLA) on peritoneal leukocyte function.
TLDR
Peritoneal leukocyte abnormalities observed in some high peritonitis rate CAPD patients may be reversed, to some degree, by MPLA, without directly inducing a potentially deleterious peritoneal fibrosis. Expand
Acetate Free Biofiltration: Effects on Peripheral Blood Monocyte Activation and Cytokine Release
TLDR
It was concluded that acetate dialysis directly activates peripheral blood monocytes to produce IL-1, PGE2, and LTB4, whereas bicarbonate induced TNF activation occurs through endotoxins, whereas in AFB, which uses a buffer free dialysate and sterile biccarbonate infusion, monocyte activation is negligible.

Ca++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 regulate in vitro and in vivo the response to human recombinant erythropoietin in CAPD patients.
TLDR
Data underline the role of Ca++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 in erythropoiesis in uremic patients and may aid the understanding of the mode of action and the degree of response to rHuEPO in CAPD patients. Expand
Ca++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 enhance peritoneal macrophage (PMPhi) antimicrobial functions in CAPD.
TLDR
In vitro data underline the importance of Ca++ and 1,25(OH)2D3 in PMO antibacterial functions in CAPD patients, and may be useful in the prophylaxis and therapy of peritonitis. Expand
Bone Marrow Erythroid Precursor Ca++ Regulates the Response to Human Recombinant Erythropoietin (Rhuepo) in Hemodialysis Patients
TLDR
The role of Ca++ in erythropoiesis is emphasized and may aid understanding of the mode of action of rHuEPO in HD and an inverse correlation was seen between bone marrow erythroid colony development, precursor CA++ before therapy, the in vitro erystroid and the rHu EPO dose needed in vivo to normalize hematological parameters. Expand
Intraperitoneal immunoglobulin (IG) treatment in prophylaxis of bacterial peritonitis in CAPD.
TLDR
Intraperitoneal Immunoglobulin treatment raised PDE opsonization capacity and lowered peritonitis incidence in patients of previously HPI, thus demonstrating the importance of abnormal organization in CAPD peritonopathy and the possibility of preventing infections by intraperitoneal immunoglobulus treatment.
