    The risk of death for hemodialysis patients is thought to be highest on the days following the longest interval without dialysis (usually Mondays and Tuesdays); however, existing results are inconclusive. To clarify this we analyzed Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) data of...

    Background. The normalized treatment ratio, Kt/V derived from urea kinetic models (UKM), is a commonly used measure of dialysis dose. This measure assumes that smaller patients with low volume of urea distribution (V) require proportionately less total treatment (Kt) than larger patients. The...

    Dialysis reactions with biocompatible membranes are rare, and complement activation has been suggested to be a culprit. We report here a case of an incident haemodialysis patient with asthma disease who experienced severe adverse reactions late into dialysis session, with different synthetic...

    Japan has the highest prevalence of dialysis patients in the world. According to the Annual Report of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy (JSDT; 2002), the total dialysis population was 229 538 (1801.5 patients per million population) at the end of 2002. The annual crude mortality rate has...

    Background. Although several reports have focused on the clinical importance of the systemic microinflammatory state in the uraemic population, the relationship between the activation of a specific transcriptome and the development of this condition is still not completely defined. Methods....
