Project description

Uremic retention compounds are accumulated when the kidneys fail. Studies are udnertaken to 1) analyze the concentration of known retention products 2) to discover unknown retention products and to measure their concentration 3) to analyze their kinetics during their removal by dialysis 4) to search for methods which improve the efficacy of the removal of these compounds.
