Long-term peritoneal dialysis is limited by physiologic changes in the peritoneum that lead to ultrafiltration failure. To determine the role of profibrotic cytokines in the alteration of peritoneal transport, a rodent model of transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta)-mediated peritoneal fibrosis was established. An adenoviral vector driving the active(More)
Gene therapy is a promising new treatment modality based on molecular genetic modification to achieve a therapeutic benefit. We believe that gene therapy in the peritoneal cavity holds considerable promise, and we describe strategies by which genetic modification can be used to treat a variety of disease states or conditions. First, we can envision a(More)
