A novel class of membranes, medium cut-off (MCO) membranes, has recently been designed to achieve interesting removal capacities for middle and large middle molecules in hemodialysis (HD) treatments. The few studies published to date have reported contradictory results regarding middle-sized molecules when comparing MCO dialyzers versus dialyzers used in online hemodiafiltration (OL-HDF).

The objectives of hemodialysis have moved from the diffusive clearance of small molecular weight uremic toxins and achieving dialyzer urea adequacy targets to emphasis on improving clinical outcomes i...
Sieving coefficients reported in dialyzer data sheets and instructions for use (IFUs) indicate the potential of different solutes to pass across a particular membrane. Despite being measured in vitro,...
The aim of this study is to compare molecule removal and albumin leakage in postdilution online hemodiafiltration with different high-flux dialyzers.
In this study, we compared the dialysis efficiency, oxidative stress, and nutritional conditions between predilution on-line hemodiafiltration (pre-OL-HDF) and conventional hemodialysis (HD) using a s...
Studies on the long-term clinical benefits of hemodiafiltration (HDF) and high-flux hemodialysis (HFHD) are very limited. This study aimed to investigate the hospitalization rate and aortic arch calci...
Theranova is a novel medium cut-off (MCO) dialyzer. Previous studies identified that theranova dialyzer had superior performance on middle molecule removal to conventional hemodialysis (HD...
Today it is well established that middle molecules comprise several compounds that are not effectively removed by high-flux dialyzers, and effective clearance of large middle molecules in ...
study to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Expanded Hemodialysis (HDx) compared to hemodiafiltration (HDF) in patients with chronic kidney disease in Spain for up to 36 months. Approxim...
The study investigates the performance of a new dialyzer (Theranova 400) containing a membrane with increased pore sizes. The performance will be determined by the removal of middle molecu...
In China, the estimated prevalence of patients with ESRD receiving PD or maintenance HD increased from 51.7 per million population (pmp) at the end of 2007 to 79.1 pmp at the end of 2008. ...
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Comparison of outcomes, results, responses, etc for different techniques, therapeutic approaches or other inputs.
Therapy for the insufficient cleansing of the BLOOD by the kidneys based on dialysis and including hemodialysis, PERITONEAL DIALYSIS, and HEMODIAFILTRATION.
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
