Abstract

Sorbents have been designed to remove small and middle molecular weight toxins, including low molecular weight proteins, peptides, cytokines and chemokines in patients undergoing renal replacement therapy. Sorbents assist the process of peritoneal dialysate regeneration and have the potential to improve the efficiency of continuous flow peritoneal dialysis.
