Our aim was to evaluate the role of three different variables in the activation of the monocyte system: dialysis membrane (cuprophane or polyacrylonitrile), dialysate (acetate or bicarbonate), and procedure (standard or high-flux haemodialysis). By ELISA test we measured the 'in vivo' intracellular (monocyte-associated) production and extracellular release… CONTINUE READING
