Effect of hemodialysis session on the dynamics of carnitine ester profile changes in l-carnitine pretreated end-stage renal disease patients

International Urology and Nephrology, 06/14/2012

The washout induced by hemodialysis (HD) session results in variable depletion of short–, medium–, and long–chain carnitine esters in carnitine–pretreated patients; the recovery of the circulating carnitine esters from the body stores occurs within 30 min after the cessation of the HD procedure.
