Abstract

Peritoneal mesothelial cells and fibroblasts were co-cultured in vitro with peritoneal white blood cells (PWBC) obtained from CAPD patients, after an overnight exchange with 0.5% Dianeal or 2.5% Dianeal. Unstimulated PWBC inhibited proliferation of mesothelial cells and fibroblasts. Upon stimulation with lipoposaccharides (LPS), PWBC from the 0.5% dextrose exchange, enhanced the growth of mesothelial cells and fibroblasts, whereas when stimulated with LPS, PBWC from the 2.5% dextrose exchange increased only proliferation of fibroblasts.
