Immunoreactive epidermal growth factor in serum, plasma, platelets, and urine in patients on chronic dialysis.

Abstract

In 25 patients with chronic renal failure undergoing hemodialysis the level of epidermal growth factor (EGF) was significantly increased in plasma (61 +/- 10 vs. 36 +/- 12 pM in 23 aged-matched controls; p less than 0.0001) and serum (189 +/- 51 vs. 138 +/- 69 pM, p less than 0.006) and slightly increased in platelets (391 +/- 134 vs. 308 +/- 87 aM/10(6… (More)
