The association between the vascular endothelial growth factor-to-cancer antigen 125 ratio in peritoneal dialysis effluent and the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.


We examined peritoneal growth factors, mesothelial mass, and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in response to peritoneal exposure to peritoneal dialysate with standard and low concentrations of glucose degradation products (GDPs). We randomized 56 incident continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients to receive either low-GDP (30… (More)
