This study is the 1st of its kind to report differences in the effects of PS and VEPS, which are 2 different types of PS-based hemodialyzer membranes used in ABP, on the inflammatory burden generated in an in vivo animal model of sepsis.
By comparison, the barrier between blood and water in hemodialysis patients is the membrane within the hemodialyzer through which the transfer of contaminants is limited only by the size of the contaminant.
Various mechanisms have been proposed to account for the increased oxidative damage following HD treatment: the issue of hemoincompatibility induced by the contact between human blood and the nonbiological materials of the hemodialyzer and the resulting effects on leukocyte and platelet activation and inflammation [20, 77, 78], systemic inflammation effects mediated via neutrophil activity burst resulting in the release of ROS into the bloodstream [46, 56], and the role the HD process per se in reducing plasma antioxidant defense because several antioxidant dialyzable solutes are removed during HD.
