Many epidemiological studies have pointed to the association between serum parameters of phosphate metabolism (phosphate, FGF23) and microbiotic protein fermentation (p-cresyl sulphate [PCS], indoxyl sulphate [IS]) on the one hand and increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular death on the other hand.
Hypothesis: Due to failing feed-back mechanisms, diurnal variation of serum concentrations of serum phosphate and fermentation metabolites will be more pronounced in dialysis patients, especially in those with negligible residual kidney function.
Clinical studies assessing this issue are scarce to non-existing.

The aim of this study is to demonstrate the efficiency of an adapted and "alternate" peritoneal dialysis scheme in terms of sodium extraction and purification compared to an adapted conven...
This study aims to use modified peritoneal dialysis prescriptions to achieve adequate clearance and volume removal while decreasing the number of exchanges or time spent on dialysis, evalu...
A Feasibility Study of Peritoneal Dialysis With CLS PD, Which Removes Toxins and Maintains a Stable Ultrafiltration by Continuously Regenerating a Recirculating Intraperitoneal Fluid, in Patients With End Stage Renal Disease, ESRD, With PD Therapy.
The study is a proof-of-concept of peritoneal dialysis with the Carry Life System for Peritoneal Dialysis (CLS PD). The extra-corporeally absorption of uremic toxins and certain ions from ...
This is a double blind randomized controlled study to evaluate the effect of aldactone on peritoneal fibrosis on incident peritoneal dialysis patients. The study would include a total of 4...
Peritoneal fibrosis is one of the major causes of technical failure in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) for long period of time. Although the exact mechanisms of peritoneal damage duri...
Improved biocompatibility of peritoneal dialysis solution (PDS) is crucial for peritoneal membrane preservation, thereby ensuring long-term peritoneal dialysis (PD) and preventing encapsulating perito...
Although historically peritoneal dialysis was widely used in nephrology, it has been underutilized in recent years. In this review, we present several key opportunities and strategies for revitalizati...
Peritoneal dialysis (PD)-related infections lead to significant morbidity. The International Society for Peritoneal Dialysis (ISPD) guidelines for the prevention and treatment of PD-related infections...
Renal replacement therapy is vital for patients with chronic renal failure. Each type of renal replacement therapy has its own characteristics, and patients select it according on their living environ...
Peritoneal dialysis (PD) effluent is normally transparent. A change in its appearance may be the first indication of an intra- or extraperitoneal abnormality which may or may not be related to the per...
Portable peritoneal dialysis using the continuous (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) presence of peritoneal dialysis solution in the peritoneal cavity except for periods of drainage and instillation of fresh solution.
Dialysis fluid being introduced into and removed from the peritoneal cavity as either a continuous or an intermittent procedure.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Disorder characterized by a wide range of structural changes in PERITONEUM, resulting from fibrogenic or inflammatory processes. Peritoneal fibrosis is a common complication in patients receiving PERITONEAL DIALYSIS and contributes to its gradual decrease in efficiency.
Natural openings in the subdiaphragmatic lymphatic plexus in the PERITONEUM, delimited by adjacent mesothelial cells. Peritoneal stomata constitute the principal pathways for the drainage of intraperitoneal contents from the PERITONEAL CAVITY to the LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...

Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
