A study on hemodialysis leukopenia using various dialyzers

Journal of Dialysis

Hemodialysis leukopenia was studied using various dialyzers and membranes. We found that dialyzers with cellulosic membranes caused marked leukopenia, but in recently developed non cellulosic membranes, its occurrence was significantly less. Additionally, our results showed a newly developed cellulose acetate membrane to correlate well with the non cellulose membranes regarding leukopenia, in spite of it being a derivative of cellulose. The extent of white blood cell decrease seemed to correlate inversely with an increase in the ultrafiltration rate per membrane area of dialyzer. The relationship between leukopenia and hypoxemia was examined also. The results of this investigation are included, however, we feel that more research is necessary before any conclusions can be made.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
