BACKGROUND Numbers of endothelial progenitor cells (EPC) have been shown to be decreased in subjects with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). It is not clear, however, whether dialysis modality affects circulating EPCs in ESRD subjects. METHODS We examined the number of circulating EPCs in 67 continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients and age- and gender-matched 142 haemodialysis (HD) patients, and 78 subjects without chronic kidney disease. Arterial stiffness was analysed as pulse… CONTINUE READING
