    Description

    A nephrologist will lead a national research study in patients with chronic kidney disease to test whether six-times-a-week home dialysis at night works as well or better than three-times-a-week dialysis in a dialysis center.



    Newswise - A Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center nephrologist will lead a national research study in patients with chronic kidney disease to test whether six-times-a-week home dialysis at night works as well or better than three-times-a-week dialysis in a dialysis center.

    The study involves hemodialysis, a type of artificial kidney treatment where the blood is cleaned by a kidney dialysis machine. It is the most common form of dialysis. It is also known as chronic dialysis therapy because the patient's kidneys have permanently failed, requiring dialysis for the rest of their lives.
