Abstract

Regenerated cellulose membranes have been held responsible for a variety of ill effects in dialysis patients. Many of these effects (hypotension, changes in well-being) have not been supported by studies, while other effects were more likely due to ethylene oxide. The lower cost of dialyzers composed of these membranes may allow implementation of otherwise costprohibitive lifesaving therapy in some countries.
