Effluent biomarkers may be considered as powerful utensils, as they provide insight into anatomical intra-peritoneal processes in a non-invasive manner. Moreover, the functionality of the peritoneal membrane is not inherent to its morphology. When effluent biomarkers are used as complementary instruments for peritoneal integrity assessments, a more complete picture of the functional and morphological state of the peritoneal membrane will be gained.
The current thesis contributed to the field of effluent biomarker discovery in peritoneal dialysis (PD) therapy through identification of candidate effluent biomarkers, characterization of the more established biomarkers and by providing insight into their clinical applications and validity.
