Elevation of bicarbonate concentration in the dialysate
would be an acceptable alternative for better management of metabolic acidosis in this setting but carries a potential increase in risk of mortality (5).
During a hemodialysis session, approximately 120 liters of dialysate
are used for blood depuration, thus, water purity is essential to avoid additional risks to the patient's health (Bommer & Jaber, 2006).The European Pharmacopoeia recommends an upper limit of 100 CFU [mL.sup.-1] for purified water used in dialysates
(Council of Europe, 2013), once several studies have demonstrated the importance of maintaining low bacterial load within the dialysate
, thus preventing clinical complications due to bacterial contaminants (Brunet & Berland, 2000; Lonnemann, 2000).
The process was undertaken with 1% albumin-containing dialysate
, which was prepared manually.
* A retrospective cohort study investigated the combination of a heparin-grafted polyacrilonitrile (AN69ST) membrane with 0.80 mmol/L citric acid-containing dialysate
. Clotting of the circuit was reported in 17.5% of all sessions and clotting shortened treatment time in 15.2% of sessions (Francois et al., 2014).
The indicated glucose treatments induced an approximately 4.9-fold increase of MDA after 238 mM dialysate
glucose stimulation (Figure 2(d)).
This stock solution was diluted with a well-characterized dialysate
buffer (10) to a concentration of 0.35 [micro]mol/L testosterone.
We therefore exposed adult male rats to a commercial mixture of PCBs (Arodor 1254) and used in vivo microdialysis to determine extraneuronal (i.e., dialysate
) concentrations of DA.
We obtained dialysis devices and dialysate
buffer from Nichols Institute Diagnostics.
We used [T.sub.4]-depleted serum total proteins, which contain all [T.sub.4]BSPs, to test for spurious free [T.sub.4] results in dialysates

In view of the observation of increased susceptibility to infection in CAPD patients and on seeing the low sensitivity and specificity of the methods available for the diagnosis of peritonitis, we have attempted to study CL formation in dialysates
of CAPD patients.
