Effects of hypertonic peritoneal dialysis solutions on neutrophil superoxide production.
Superoxide produced by neutrophils plays an important role in the killing of bacterial pathogens. The effects of glucose-containing peritoneal dialysis solutions on superoxide production by canine and human neutrophils were studied. A significant decrement in superoxide generation was noted with the 2.27% and 3.86% glucose solutions. The results suggest that hypertonic peritoneal dialysis solutions curtail neutrophil superoxide generation.
