Background. Chronic peritoneal dialysis may eventually result in peritoneal fibrosis, which progressively reduces dialytic efficacy. Although the pathogenesis has not been elucidated, it has been proposed that transforming growth factor beta-1 (TGF beta1) plays a central role in the onset of peritoneal fibrosis.
