The effects of a recently introduced peritoneal dialysis fluid (PDF) containing amino acids (AA) were compared with those of a glucose-based PDF (G-PDF) on viability and function of donor granulocytes (PMNs) in vitro. After 30 min incubation in the PDF, viability, assessed by trypan blue exclusion, and phagocytosis capacity (PC), tested in two assays using a fluorescein and a 3H-labeled Staphylococcus epidermidis strain, were significantly better in AA-PDF than in G-PDF (p < 0.002 in the 3H… CONTINUE READING
