Abstract

OBJECTIVE: TFF3 is a small peptide hormone secreted from mucous producing cells and many epithelial cells. TFF3 inhibits apoptosis, promotes migration and facilitates restoration against injury. In our cross-sectional study, TFF3 levels in peritoneal fluids of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients were measured and associated factors were investigated.
