BACKGROUND The triggers of the acute local inflammatory response to peritoneal dialysis (PD) fluid exposure remain unknown. In the present study, we investigated the effects of neurogenic inflammation and mast cell degranulation on water and solute transport in experimental PD. METHODS Single 2-hour dwells in rats with PD catheters were studied. Histamine… CONTINUE READING
