It has been suggested that CA125 is a marker of peritoneal mesothelial cell mass and turnover. As PD CA125 increases during peritoneal inflammation, we wished to determine whether measuring PD CA125 during peritonitis provided additional information in determining outcome of peritonitis. METHODS We prospectively measured… CONTINUE READING
