Chronic Disease Research Group Study Shows Daily Home Hemodialysis Therapy with the NxStage® System One™ is Associated with Lower Risk of Mortality and Higher Survival Estimates Compared to Conventional Thrice-Weekly Dialysis
Date:4/28/2011

USRDS registry, including those patients who either had Medicare as the primary payer for greater than three months before DHHD initiation or began renal replacement therapy less than six months before initiation. Unique to this study is the detailed matching process the researchers developed based on an ordered set of covariates that could impact mortality. These covariates included age, hospital days during preceding three months, epoetin alfa dose during preceding three months, body mass index, transplant waiting list status, congestive heart failure, renal replacement therapy duration, race, cancer, primary End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) cause, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, other cardiac disease, diabetes, ischemic heart disease, gender and dual eligibility for Medicare and Medicaid.

"We commend Dr. Collins and the CDRG for conducting the largest, broadest, most rigorously analyzed study of survival in the daily home hemodialysis population to date," said Jeffrey H. Burbank, Chief Executive Officer, NxStage Medical Inc. "This study reaffirms our belief that the clinical evidence overwhelmingly supports the significant benefits of more frequent dialysis with the System One at home.  We look forward to continue to work with policy makers to ensure patient access to this life-changing therapy."
