BACKGROUND Sclerosing encapsulating peritonitis (SEP) is a life-threatening complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. To elucidate the mechanism and develop treatments for this condition, an experimental SEP model in mice was constructed. METHODS C57BL/6 mice were administered 0.3 ml of 0.1% chlorhexidine gluconate and 15% ethanol dissolved in saline, intraperitoneally, on a daily basis for 56 days (group 1, n=15).
