Effects of dipyridamole on peritoneal clearances

Uremia Investigation
G P ReamsK Nolph


To see if oral dipyridamole increases peritoneal clearances in humans undergoing peritoneal dialysis, two types of double-blind clinical studies were undertaken. In a single-dose study, 7 patients were randomized to take dipyridamole or placebo early in a peritoneal dialysis with 2 L, hourly cycles; later in the same dialysis a crossover administration was studied. In a multidose study, 17 patients were randomized to take dipyridamole or placebo three times daily and clearance studies were performed on days 1, 4, and 8 during 2 L, hourly peritoneal dialysis cycles. Neither the single dose of dipyridamole or placebo significantly altered drainage volumes, clearances, or dialysate protein from control periods. In the multidose study, mean values on dipyridamole or placebo were not significantly changed from respective baseline predrug values. Mean values with dipyridamole and placebo usually were not significantly different. Dipyridamole did not appear to improve peritoneal clearances even with repeated ingestion.

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.
