Abstract

While the importance of biocompatibility in the prevention of several dialysis complications is now clearer, the cellular, the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying membrane-induced immune cell activation are still largely unclear. The present study was designed to evaluate the PMN functions from dialysis patients with different dialysis membranes. The results provide evidence that the depressed PMNs activities in dialysis patients may be influenced by membrane biocompatibility in such a way to be totally restored..
