Summary
Brief summary
This study aims to look at the inflammatory processes in patients with kidney disease who require haemodialysis. It has been shown that there is a pro-inflammatory process in this cohort of patients and this study intends to look at the specific mechanisms, immune cellular function and inflammatory molecules involved in this process. It also intends to look at the effect of Colchicine, an anti-inflammatory agent on the level of inflammatory molecules
