Home Dialysis Clinical Research Study is Underway - Focuses on At-Home Extended Duration Treatment
Date:11/7/2007

a new concept and its potential benefits are well-known, including increased stamina, enhanced appetite and improved quality of life as just a few of the improvements this form of treatment can offer," said Renal Solutions CEO Peter M. DeComo. "The home modality has been out of vogue in part because available dialysis equipment hasn't been suited to the home. But it's on its way back. This trial may mark a tremendous step forward for people living with chronic kidney failure in the future."

"In addition to home hemodialysis being a proven alternative to in-center dialysis, at-home dialysis offers individuals more freedom and control in their lives," said Dr. Mark Rohrscheib, University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center. "The convenience of a dialysis technology that uses only a small amount of drinking water for each treatment is a tremendous advantage for home dialysis. Patients interested in new modalities will be excited to learn about this trial."

"We're pleased to be part of a trial that may introduce new options for our home dialysis patients," said Brigitte Schiller, MD, Director of Research, Satellite Healthcare, Mountain View, Ca. "This trial may further bring to light the benefits of extended duration dialysis."

Active recruitment has begun at multiple sites with subjects continuing to enroll in the study. Renal Solutions is working with a group of nephrologists and patient-focused dialysis facilities to conduct this trial. Individuals who are interested in contributing to a movement that is intended innovate the way chronic kidney failure is treated should ask their doctors about participating local research sites.

Patient-focused dialysis centers with certified home programs that are interested in learning more about this home trial should contact Mr. Vanella, (724) 772-6900, ext. 140.
