Effect of endothelin-1 on the transmesothelial resistance of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
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 ...
Prevalence of coeliac disease in the adult population of central Greece
OBJECTIVES: Recent studies from several countries have shown that coeliac disease (CD) is increasingly being diagnosed in adults, as the availability of new, accurate serologic tests has made screening in the general ...
Polysomnographic evidence of sleep apnoea disorders in lean and overweight haemodialysis patients
Background - Sleep apnoea disorders affect a large proportion of patients with renal failure. However, it is unknown whether body composition and visceral adiposity predispose haernodialysis patients to sleep apnoea ...
Amiloride-sensitive sodium channels on the parietal human peritoneum: Evidence by ussing-type chamber experiments
The mesothelium is part of the peritoneal water and ion transport barrier essential for peritoneal dialysis (PD) treatment and has a central role in the pathogenesis of peritoneal fibrosis and ultrafiltration failure ...
mu-Opioid stimulation of isolated parietal sheep peritoneum decreases peritoneal permeability in vitro
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 ...
Effect of sodium-potassium pump inhibition by ouabain on the permeability of isolated visceral sheep peritoneum
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 ...
