Beta-2-microglobulin (β(2)M) clearance has been improved in recent dialysis membranes and minimum albumin leakage has been achieved in most membranes today since dialysis membranes are now classified by β(2)M clearance in terms of the reimbursement by health insurance. Kawanishi et al. suggested that 'the desirable albumin leakage in one treatment is less than 4 g '. Function classification type IV or type V dialysis membranes have leakages as low as 3 g, while most resulted in < 1 g leakage… CONTINUE READING
