  • Effect of adrenaline on the electrophysiologic profile of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Stefanidis, I.; Hatzoglou, C.; Liakopoulos, V.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A. (2004)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In the present study, we investigated, by means of Ussing chamber experiments, the effect of adrenaline on the electrical transepithelial ...
  • Effect of cimetidine on the electrophysiologic profile of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Liakopoulos, V.; Zarogiannis, S.; Kourti, P.; Hatzoglou, C.; Karioti, A.; Arampatzis, S.; Giannopoulou, M.; Musso, C.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2009)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. Cimetidine is an H2 receptor antagonist and a potent inhibitor of Na+/H+ antiporter, which is found in the plasma membranes of various cell ...
  • Effect of endothelin-1 on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Kourti, P.; Zarogiannis, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Hatzoglou, C.; Giannopoulou, M.; Chronopoulou, I.; Mertens, P. R.; Potamianos, S.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The mesothelium is part of the peritoneal barrier that manages the water and ion transport essential for peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. In addition, it has a central role in the pathogenesis of peritoneal fibrosis and ...
  • Effect of sodium-potassium pump inhibition by ouabain on the permeability of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Liakopoulos, V.; Hatzoglou, C.; Kourti, P.; Vogiatzidis, K.; Potamianos, S.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The permeability for small solutes and the ultrafiltration capacity of the peritoneum are essential for effective peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment. Elucidation of the factors that regulate these two properties is therefore ...
  • Influence of the sodium transport inhibition by amiloride on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Kourti, P.; Hatzoglou, C.; Liakopoulos, V.; Poultsidi, A.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2005)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In the present study, we used Ussing chamber experiments to investigate the effect of amiloride on the transmesothelial electrical resistance ...
  • Inhibition by mercuric chloride of aquaporin-1 in the parietal sheep peritoneum: an electrophysiologic study 

    Liakopoulos, V.; Zarogiannis, S.; Hatzoglou, C.; Kourti, P.; Poultsidi, A.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2006)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a barrier to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In this study, we used Ussing-chamber experiments to investigate the effect of HgCl2, an aquaporin-1 inhibitor, on the transmesothelial ...
  • mu-Opioid stimulation of isolated parietal sheep peritoneum decreases peritoneal permeability in vitro 

    Zarogiannis, S.; Vogiatzidis, K.; Hatzoglou, C.; Liakopoulos, V.; Potamianos, S.; Eleftheriadis, T.; Dovas, S.; Kourti, P.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2007)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is one of the main barriers to ion transport in peritoneal dialysis. In a previous study, we showed the existence of a micro-opioid influence on the in vitro ionic permeability of serosal membranes ...
  • Rapid effect of dexamethasone on the permeability of visceral sheep peritoneum 

    Karioti, A.; Hatzoglou, C.; Zarogiannis, S.; Deligiorgi, T.; Liakopoulos, V.; Kourti, P.; Giannopoulou, M.; Gourgoulianis, K.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Stefanidis, I. (2008)
    The peritoneal mesothelium is a biologic barrier to water and ion transport. Its functional and structural integrity is crucial for peritoneal dialysis treatment. In vivo studies have shown that corticosteroids increase ...
  • Role of Histamine in Altering Fluid Recycling in Normal and Post-Traumatic Rabbit Peritoneum 

    Kouritas, V. K.; Tepetes, K.; Spyridakis, M.; Theodosopoulou, K. V.; Gourgoulianis, K. I.; Molyvdas, P. A.; Hatzoglou, C. (2014)
    This study aims to investigate if histamine induces electrochemical alterations in the normal and post-traumatic peritoneum. Peritoneal rabbit specimens were obtained before surgery and 10 days post-operatively and were ...
  • Spironolactone increases permeability of visceral sheep peritoneum
