The reduction of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing hemo- or peritoneal dialysis is strongly related to an efficient and selective clearance of uremic toxins. We used proteomics methods to analyze and further characterize the dialytic removal of still undefined middle and high molecular weigh proteins as a basis for further improvement of dialysis assessment. Dialysates from 26 hemodialysis patients treated with different types of low- (F6HPS®) and high-flux (FX80®, APS650®, FX60… CONTINUE READING
