OBJECTIVE To investigate whether dialysate concentrations of substances that are locally produced within the peritoneal cavity can be used to study the effects of inflammation on peritoneal tissue. DESIGN We followed the appearance rates (AR) of concentrations of cancer antigen (CA) 125, phospholipids (PHL), hyaluronan (HA), and the procollagen peptides PICP (procollagen 1 C-terminal) and PIIINP (procollagen 3 N-terminal) in dialysate during peritonitis (8 consecutive days) and after recovery… CONTINUE READING
