Probiotics Use in the Chronic Peritoneal Dialysis Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:36 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether probiotics can improve the nutrition status and prevent peritonitis in the chronic peritoneal dialysis patients.

Description

Peritoneal dialysis was one of therapies for uremia patient. However, peritoneal dialysis related peritonitis was a major complication for these patients. Severe and prolong peritonitis may led to membrane failure and drop out of peritoneal dialysis. Among the pathogens, G(+) bacteria came from skin surface and G(-) bacteria came from gastrointestinal tract. The later might be related to the pathogens in the gastrointestinal tract, and led to peritonitis if constipation or diarrhea developed. In addition, intestinal pathogens may be related to chronic inflammation in uremia patients. There was a MIA syndrome (malnutrition, inflammation and atherosclerosis) noted before, and chronic inflammation may be related to malnutrition. Today, we know that nutrition status and inflammation marker (CRP) may be associated with patients' outcome. Many gastrointestinal syndromes such as constipation suffer our patients. The dialysate in the abdominal cavity may further exacerbate the appetite. The probiotics was though to improve the pathogens in intestinal tract, improve gastrointestinal function. We want to decrease the incidence of peritonitis by using the probiotics. In addition, the improvement in gastrointestinal function can increase the nutrition status.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.

A form of PERITONITIS seen in patients with TUBERCULOSIS, characterized by lesion either as a miliary form or as a pelvic mass on the peritoneal surfaces. Most patients have ASCITES, abdominal swelling, ABDOMINAL PAIN, and other systemic symptoms such as FEVER; WEIGHT LOSS; and ANEMIA.

Common coronavirus infection of cats caused by the feline infectious peritonitis virus (CORONAVIRUS, FELINE). The disease is characterized by a long incubation period, fever, depression, loss of appetite, wasting, and progressive abdominal enlargement. Infection of cells of the monocyte-macrophage lineage appears to be essential in FIP pathogenesis.

An oligosaccharide antibiotic produced by various STREPTOMYCES.

Accumulation of purulent EXUDATES beneath the DIAPHRAGM, also known as upper abdominal abscess. It is usually associated with PERITONITIS or postoperative infections.
