Biocompatible PD fluid reduces cell death due to inflammation

In time, the peritoneum (just one cell layer thick) can wear out when used for PD. A new study finds that peritoneal cells in petri dishes bathed in standard PD fluid were more likely to die due to inflammation caused by glucose. But, cells bathed in biocompatible fluids were protected from the damage. In humans, this means that the peritoneum may last longer.
