Özet

OBJECTIVE: Mannose-binding lectin (MBL) takes part in innate immunity through opsonisation and complement activation. Deficiency of MBL is associated with some infections and autoimmune disorders. This study focused on functional MBL deficiency and its effects on dialysis-related peritonitis and catheter-related bacteremia in patients with end stage renal disease.
