Test of the Nipro ELISIO H Dialyzer in Different Dialysis Treatment Procedures

2014-08-27 03:28:20 | BioPortfolio


A current trend in dialysis membrane engineering is to maximize the permeability for larger low-molecular weight proteins while retaining albumin. Protein-leaking dialysis membranes do not meet these requirements. Particularly in convective procedures, such as hemodiafiltration, their albumin leakage is too high [10]. POLYNEPHRON™, the membrane which is built in to the new Nipro ELISIO® dialyzer, is a new dialysis membrane, produced by applying an innovative spinning technique. The incentive of its development was to improve the characteristics of existing dialysis membranes, i.e., realizing a steeper sieving profile for low-molecular weight proteins without significant loss of essential larger proteins at best biocompatibility properties, for a more adequate dialysis therapy. Purpose of the planned study is to demonstrate the superior performance at lower albumin loss in different dialysis procedures of the new Nipro ELISIO® dialyzer compared with a control dialyzer with regard to the removal of the whole range of uremic toxins.

Mathematical model of calcium exchange during haemodialysis using a citrate containing dialysate.

Calcium has two important roles in haemodialysis. It participates in the activation of blood coagulation and calcium intakes have a major impact on patient mineral and bone metabolism. The aim of this...

Extracellular matrix-coated polyethersulfone-TPGS hollow fiber membranes showing improved biocompatibility and uremic toxins removal for bioartificial kidney application.

In this study, L-3, 4-dihydroxyphenylalanine and human collagen type IV were coated over the outer surface of the custom-made hollow fiber membranes (HFMs) with the objective of simultaneously improvi...

Impact of Intradialytic Exercise Intensity on Urea Clearance in Hemodialysis Patients.

Intradialytic exercise (IDE) has been shown to benefit dialysis efficacy; however, the effect of IDE intensity is unknown. Dialyzer urea clearance (K urea, ml/min) was significantly greater during bot...

The relationship between treatment accessibility and preference amongst out-of-treatment individuals who engage in non-medical prescription opioid use.

Relatively little is known regarding the perception of medication-assisted treatments (MATs) and other treatment options amongst individuals that engage in non-medical prescription opioid use. This st...

Why not to stop antiviral treatment in patients with chronic hepatitis B.

Treatment of chronic hepatitis B with entecavir or tenofovir leads to viral suppression in almost all patients. However, prolonged or lifelong treatment is necessary. At present, there is no consensus...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Withholding or withdrawal of a particular treatment or treatments, often (but not necessarily) life-prolonging treatment, from a patient or from a research subject as part of a research protocol. The concept is differentiated from REFUSAL TO TREAT, where the emphasis is on the health professional's or health facility's refusal to treat a patient or group of patients when the patient or the patient's representative requests treatment. Withholding of life-prolonging treatment is usually indexed only with EUTHANASIA, PASSIVE, unless the distinction between withholding and withdrawing treatment, or the issue of withholding palliative rather than curative treatment, is discussed.

A vasodilator that also has bronchodilatory action. It has been employed in the treatment of angina pectoris, in the treatment of asthma, and in conjunction with ultraviolet light A, has been tried in the treatment of vitiligo. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1024)

A treatment method in which patients are under direct observation when they take their medication or receive their treatment. This method is designed to reduce the risk of treatment interruption and to ensure patient compliance.

An internationally recognized set of published rules used for evaluation of cancer treatment that define when tumors found in cancer patients improve, worsen, or remain stable during treatment. These criteria are based specifically on the response of the tumor(s) to treatment, and not on the overall health status of the patient resulting from treatment.

A dental health survey developed to evaluate a patient's orthodontic treatment need and priority for orthodontic care. The index is based on an assessment of degree of MALOCCLUSION and the potential aesthetic and dental health benefit of the treatment under consideration.
