BACKGROUND Peritoneal transport status is important not only for prescription, but also as a prognostic index. Flt-1 and Flk-1, the major vascular endothelial growth factor receptors involved in angiogenesis and hyperpermeability, may play a potent role in determining peritoneal transport characteristics. However, the relationship between them has not been studied to date. We hypothesized that Flt-1 and Flk-1 expression in the peritoneal vasculature of uremic patients could be closely related… CONTINUE READING
