Peritoneal dialysis technique survival remains challenging due to peritonitis and long-term alterations to peritoneal membrane function and integrity. Up to now, the development of less bio-incompatible dialysis solutions have not had a major impact on these aspects of the therapy. A novel approach, supplementing dialysis solutions with a cytoprotective additive, alanyl-glutamine, has shown benefits to surrogate biomarkers of cell function in a randomized controlled study.
