BACKGROUND Most crucial in the initial stages of host defence against invading micro-organisms is innate immunity, in which peripheral mononuclear cells, in particular cytokines, are pivotal. Mortality from infections is high in dialysis patients, but it remains unclear if this arises from the ineffectiveness of innate immune mechanisms. METHODS In 20 haemodialysis (HD) patients, 20 patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), and 15 age-matched controls, we studied cytokine… CONTINUE READING
