Lettre à l'éditeur
Résumé : To the Editor: In the July 16 issue, Nakauchi et al.1 describe their findings concerning levels of IgA, IgG, and IgM in patients undergoing hemodialysis. We would like to add further information with regard to IgE in chronic uremia and its relation to blood eosinophilia. Four groups of subjects were studied: 62 patients with end-stage renal failure from various causes who were undergoing maintenance hemodialysis with single-use hollow-fiber cuprophane dialyzers and whose average duration of dialysis was 32.4 months (Group I); 12 patients treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis for an average of 16.1 months (Group II); 35 conservatively treated. © 1981, Massachusetts Medical Society.
