Encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS) is an infrequent, but extremely serious complication of long-term peritoneal dialysis. The cause of EPS is unclear, but the low incidence suggests that it is most likely multifactorial. The elucidation of developmental pathways and predictive markers of EPS would facilitate the identification and management of high-risk patients. Animal models are often used to define pathways of disease progression and to test strategies for treatment and prevention in… CONTINUE READING
