BACKGROUND: Prolonged peritoneal dialysis (PD) therapy can result in the development of encapsulating peritoneal sclerosis (EPS), characterized by extensive sclerosis of the peritoneum with bowel adhesions often causing obstruction.METHODS: As a proof-of-principle study, holistic profiling of endogenous metabolites has been applied in a prospective collection of PD effluent collected in multiple UK renal centres over 6 years in order to investigate metabolic differences in PD effluent between PD therapy patients who later developed clinically defined EPS (n = 11) and controls, who were matched for PD vintage, age and gender (n = 11).RESULTS: 'Fit-for-purpose' analytical methods employing gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (MS), direct injection MS and quality control samples were developed and validated. These methods were applied in a proof-of-principle study to define metabolic differences in PD effluent related to subsequent development of EPS. Changes in amino acids, amines and derivatives, short-chain fatty acids and derivatives and sugars were observed prior to EPS developing, and changes in the metabolomic profiles could be detected.CONCLUSION: There is potential for applying metabolic profiles to identify patients at risk of developing EPS although long-term prospective studies with larger patient cohorts are required.
