Arbor Research Collaborative for Health and the European
Renal Association-European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA) have partnered
to create EURODOPPS. The new EURODOPPS partnership brings together the
strengths of two initiatives – the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns
Study (DOPPS) and the ERA-EDTA Registry – in collecting and analyzing epidemiological
data on patients on dialysis in Europe.
The partnership establishes the EURODOPPS initiative for
study support in Germany, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, and
Sweden. The partnership also facilitates research conducted by European
investigators using EURODOPPS data to address scientific and policy questions
that are of interest to the European nephrology community and health care
The ERA-EDTA Registry collects epidemiologic
data from national and regional renal registries in Europe performing
scientific research and reporting statistics on dialysis and kidney transplant
patients in Europe. More information instead about the ERA-EDTA and all its
activities can be found at www.era-edta.org.
