Patient-Reported Measures

HDx therapy delivers meaningful and relevant innovation for dialysis patients.

Patient reported measures

Patient-Reported Measures

HDx therapy may improve patient-reported outcomes related to the quality of life aspects of kidney disease, including symptom burden, restless leg syndrome criteria, pruritus and dialysis recovery time.1, 2, 3

Importance of Patient-Reported Measures

The substantial increase of dialysis trials reveals inconsistent study design and reporting, making it more challenging to apply outcomes that improve the health and quality of life of dialysis patients. Without consistent trial parameters derived from research, clinical experience, and patient preferences, the needs of the patient and the option of better treatment outcomes will continue to remain in the background.4


Primary clinical studies illuminate the benefits of HDx therapy enabled by Theranova dialyzer

Lim JH et al. Randomized controlled trial of medium cut-off versus high-flux dialyzers on quality of life outcomes in maintenance hemodialysis patients.

Theranova dialyzer may improve patient-reported outcomes, particularly in the physical domains of QOL and uremic pruritus, through efficient removal of middle molecules, in stable maintenance HD patients.1

Alarcon JC, et al. Impact of Medium Cut-Off Dialyzers on Patient-Reported Outcomes (PROs): COREXH Registry.

Expanded clearance of middle molecular uremic toxins with Theranova dialyzer may improve patient-reported kidney disease quality of life outcomes including symptom burden, and Restless Legs Syndrome criteria.2

Bolton S et al. Clinical Assessment of Dialysis Recovery Time and Symptom Burden: Impact of Switching Hemodialysis Therapy Mode.

Sustained improvements in patient-reported post-dialysis recovery time and POS-S Renal fatigue score were observed over a 12-month period after a switch from regular HD/HDF using high-flux membranes to HDx therapy using the MCO membrane. Switching to HDx therapy with MCO membrane led to a sustained, clinically relevant decrease in patient-reported recovery time after dialysis and a decrease in fatigue levels.5
