  Purpose

Previous studies of the patients treated in RRI clinics suggest that hemodialysis patients undergo a certain consistent predictable pattern at the initiation of dialysis and before death. This pattern can be described as a group of patterns of patients' biological markers over a few months after starting dialysis and several months prior to death. Additional patterns can be observed that occur with changes in seasons or time of day. The aim of this study is to compare these patterns in patients treated in FMC-Asia, FMC-Europe, FMC-South America, and RRI-US populations. Noting that patterns in patient parameters are similar across continents, climates, and geographic variations only further accentuates the importance in the models that can predict patients' survival and provide an opportunity for timely intervention.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Date of death [ Time Frame: 10 years and 5 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    The main purpose of the study is developing an alert system that will help dialysis providers recognize patients who are at increased risk of death (or hospitalization). This alert system will be developed and can be utilized in patients treated all over the world.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Hospitalizations [ Time Frame: January 2000 - May 2010 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 50000
Study Start Date: January 2000
Study Completion Date: May 2010
Primary Completion Date: May 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
