Measures of Health-Related Quality of Life (HR-QOL) have consistently demonstrated much lower quality of life among hemodialysis patients compared to the general population and to those with other chronic medical conditions. In a study published in Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation, investigators hypothesized that a decline in HR-QOL would be associated with increased risk of death. Read more...

Anemia Management in the China Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS)Anemia Management in the China Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS)
As more and more patients with end-stage renal disease in China are able to access hemodialysis, it is important to study the management of accompanying anemia. Researchers examined China Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) data and found that a substantial proportion of hemodialysis patients in the China DOPPS do not meet hemoglobin (Hgb) targets.
