NDT (Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation) has just published an article “Dialysis Water and Fluid Purity: More Than Endotoxin”. This article highlights that the chronic exposure of HD patients to low levels of cytokine-inducing microbial components can contribute to the micro inflammatory status of these patients.
Higher purity dialysate (Ultrapure) will reduce the microbial impact to patients and result in a lower inflammatory status. This also has a side benefit of a reduced need for certain drugs (EPO), resulting in a cost savings per treatments.
