BACKGROUND The denudation of the peritoneal mesothelium and damage to the underlying interstitium is a frequent finding in patients receiving continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis as a treatment for end-stage renal failure. The response of the mesothelium to injury from repeated episodes of infection or from exposure to dialysis fluids has not been extensively studied. The present study describes a simple and reproducible method with which to investigate the response of human mesothelial… CONTINUE READING
