Comparison of Peritoneal Low-Molecular-Weight-Protein-Removal in CCPD and CAPD Patients Based on C-Terminal Agrin Fragment Clearance.


BACKGROUND/AIMS This study compares the peritoneal elimination of the low-molecular-weight-protein (LMWP) C-terminal agrin fragment (tCAF, size 22 kDa), a promising biomarker for kidney function, in continuous cycling peritoneal dialysis (CCPD) and continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). METHODS 103 sets of serum, 24h-urine and dialysate samples… (More)
