Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 260)

Abstract

In recent years, our group has published several reviews of the literature on peritoneal lymphatics1–2 and studies of peritoneal lymphatics during peritoneal dialysis in rats3–5 and in humans. 6–7 Herein I will summarize some of the major points in those publications.
