BACKGROUND Various cytokines are increased in hemodialysis (HD) patients, and are considered prognostic markers. Metabolic acidosis is common among chronic HD patients and is associated with survival. The relationship between acidosis and cytokines in HD patients has not been fully explored. The study aim was to measure pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in HD patients, with relation to bicarbonate levels. METHODS Forty-seven stable HD patients were included (male/female 28/19, mean age 70… CONTINUE READING
