In vitro testing of a potentially biocompatible continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis fluid.


In the present study a newly formulated dialysis solution (HDF) was tested for its effects on phagocyte viability and function as well as its ability to support bacterial growth. This solution differs from standard CAPD solution (NPD) by the inclusion of histidine to buffer the fluid to pH 6.7. Low-dextrose HDF (1.36% w/v dextrose) did not significantly… (More)
