We would also like to draw your attention to published studies that could affect kidney-related medical care:
Short daily-, nocturnal- and conventional-home hemodialysis have similar patient and treatment survival. Kidney Int 2018; 93: 188-194
A user-friendly tool for incremental haemodialysis prescription. Nephrol Dial Transplant. 2018 Jan 5. doi: 10.1093/ndt/gfx343

Other ongoing trials of clinical interest:
Incremental Haemodialysis in Incident Patients (IHDIP) [ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT03239808]: This study investigates with the highest level of scientific evidence, the number of sessions a patient should receive when starting the HD treatment, depending on his/her RRF.

Expanded hemodialysis registry protocol in Colombia (COREXH) [Protocol/serial number RTSCOL003]: a prospective cohort, multicenter, observational study: Determine clinical outcomes in patients on treatment with expanded hemodialysis using the Theranova dialyzer, based on a registry of conventional clinical practice in Colombia.  Click here for more information.

Expanded Hemodialysis Versus Online Hemodiafiltration [Clinical Study Identifier: NCT03274518]: The aim of this present study is to compare the extraction of middle-size molecules, the hemodynamic behavior, fluid and nutritional status of patients submitted to olHDF or HDx, in a crossover study.
