The Effect of Neutral Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Solution With Minimal Glucose-Degradation-Product (GDP) on Fluid Status and Body Composition

2014-08-27 03:19:45 | BioPortfolio


Chronic utilization of bio-incompatible peritoneal dialysis (PD) solution has been implicated as a cause of progressive loss of peritoneal permeability and recurrent fluid overload in PD patients. Previous studies show that PD solution with neutral pH and low GDP resulted in a superior profile of PD effluent mesothelial cell marker and a lower degree of systemic inflammation as compared to conventional PD solution. The investigators propose a prospective randomized control study to compare the arterial stiffness, nutrition and body fluid status between PD patients treated with conventional solution and those with neutral pH low GDP solution. The investigators plan to study 60 new PD patients. They will be randomized to be treated with neutral pH low GDP solution or conventional solution. All patients will be followed for 52 weeks. In addition to routine clinical measurements, the investigators will measure their body water composition by bioimpedance spectroscopic method, arterial pulse wave velocity by pressure transduction method, as well as radiographic parameters of intravascular volume status, based on the routine chest radiograph. Our study would help to define the clinical benefit of biocompatible PD solution.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

In health care reimbursement, especially in the prospective payment system, those patients who require an unusually long hospital stay or whose stay generates unusually high costs.

Homeostatic control of the immune system by secretion of different cytokines by the Th1 and Th2 cells. The concentration dependent binding of the various cytokines to specific receptors determines the balance (or imbalance leading to disease).

Pathological conditions in which the BLOOD GLUCOSE cannot be maintained within the normal range, such as in HYPOGLYCEMIA and HYPERGLYCEMIA. Etiology of these disorders varies. Plasma glucose concentration is critical to survival for it is the predominant fuel for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM.

Maintenance of a constant blood glucose level by perfusion or infusion with glucose or insulin. It is used for the study of metabolic rates (e.g., in glucose, lipid, amino acid metabolism) at constant glucose concentration.

A glucose transport facilitator that is expressed primarily in PANCREATIC BETA CELLS; LIVER; and KIDNEYS. It may function as a GLUCOSE sensor to regulate INSULIN release and glucose HOMEOSTASIS.
