BACKGROUND Uraemia is accompanied by conditions favouring the rise of H2O2 activity in body fluids. This results from the increased release of H2O2 by polymorphonuclear leukocytes and decreased plasma glutathione peroxidase activity. The purpose of this study was to determine if patients on chronic haemodialysis (HD) exhale more H2O2 than healthy individuals, and if dialysis affects breath H2O2 content. METHODS We studied 29 chronic HD patients (mean age 49 +/- 11 years) and 40 healthy… CONTINUE READING
