This theory is supported by the fact that repression of EMT is required for effective tumor initiation [24-27] and that CSC reprogramming often involves mesenchymal to epithelial transition (MET) [28, 29].

Peritoneal dialysis (PD) is an effective and beneficial treatment for patients with end-stage renal disease;[sup][1],[2] however, peritoneal fibrosis remains a serious complication of long-term PD patients, and a major cause of PD failure.[sup][3],[4],[5] Peritoneal fibrosis usually occurs in response to a variety of insults (including bioincompatible glucose dialysate fluids, peritonitis, uremic toxins, and chronic inflammation).[sup][6] Epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been identified as a key mechanism of peritoneal fibrosis in vitro and in PD patients.[sup][5],[7],[8] Various studies have suggested that drugs and peptides could be useful for inhibiting EMT; however, these studies are limited as they block only one signaling pathway.
