Peritoneal protein clearance (PPCl) depends upon vascular supply and size selective permeability. Some previous reports suggested PPCl can distinguish fast peritoneal membrane transport due to local or systemic inflammation. However, as studies have been discordant, we wished to determine factors associated with an increased PPCl. Consecutive patients starting peritoneal dialysis (PD) who were peritonitis‐free were studied. Data included a baseline peritoneal equilibration test (PET), measurement of dialysis adequacy …
