Hemodialysis with cellulose membranes causes a complement-mediated neutropenia. Changes in neutrophil function have also been reported; however, it is unclear if these changes indicate a direct effect of the membrane on neutrophils or if they are a consequence of the neutropenia. We tested the hypothesis that neutrophil oxidative burst activity is enhanced during dialysis with cellulose membranes. Resting and Staphylococcus aureus-stimulated H2O2 production were determined predialysis and in… CONTINUE READING
