Uremic toxins and their effects on multiple organ systems.

Nearly all body organs and systems are affected by the toxicity of uremic compounds retained in the course of renal dysfunction. Knowledge about the origin, chemical structure and composition of the retained endogenous substances responsible for these symptoms is far from complete. Organic retention solutes present a great variety of properties which makes their accurate classification extremely difficult. Their potential toxicity remains to be elucidated with meticulous observation of clearly formulated rules guiding the process. Toxicity assessment is a complex process because not just one but several retained compounds may be simultaneously involved in the same biological and metabolic processes. The search for new uremic compounds and combining them into panels of substances involved in the same pathophysiological processes seems to offer a novel approach to identifying and explaining any so far unexplored specific effects of endogenous compounds on the body organs and systems.
