Brief Summary:
Our preliminary studies have demonstrated that an innovative new design of the hemodialysis venous needle (the needle that returns the cleaned blood from the hemodialysis filter to the patient) with three jets is superior to the standard venous needle because it decreases the velocity and turbulence of the blood when compared with the standard venous needle, it is more efficient in the removal of toxins from the blood, and it is safe and effective. More importantly, our preliminary studies suggested that the new needle causes less damage to the dialysis vascular access and to circulating blood cells and less inflammation and oxidative stress. These will decrease medical complications, the high cost of care and death in dialysis patients. The current study will corroborate the finding of previous studies.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Net change in intracellular oxidative stress and intracellular proinflammatory cytokines levels [ Time Frame: 4 hours of hemodialysis ]
    The net change in the levels of intracellular IL-6, IL-6 soluble receptor, IL-6 gp130, superoxide, H2O2 and IL-1 during dialysis (difference between pre and post dialysis) using the new venous needle will be compared with the change using the current venous needle.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Net change in oxidative stress and proinflammatory cytokines in plasma [ Time Frame: 4 hours hemodialysis ]
    The net change in the plasma levels of IL-1, IL-6, MDA and AOPP during dialysis (difference between pre and post dialysis) using the new venous needle will be compared with the net change that occurs in patients using the current venous needle
