Clinical Effectiveness

HDx therapy delivers meaningful and relevant innovation for dialysis patients.


Clinical Effectiveness

HDx therapy addresses pathophysiological responses and clinical outcomes that challenge patients undergoing hemodialysis for treatment of end stage kidney disease.1

Importance of Clinical Effectiveness

A sustained reduction in the level of uremic solutes indicates a reduced degree of uremic toxicity in the blood. Evaluation is made in vivo and is assessed over the course of multiple treatments.


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

Cozzolino M et al. Effects of a medium cut-off (Theranova®) dialyzer on haemodialysis patients: a prospective, cross-over study.

HDx therapy showed a statistically significant decrease in the rate of infections. Additionally, this study validated MCO (Theranova) membrane's ability to reduce serum concentration of soluble inflammatory mediators, including cytokines.2

Cantaluppi V et al. Removal of large-middle molecules, inhibition of neutrophil activation and modulation of inflammation-telated endothelial dysfunction during expanded hemodialysis (HDx).

HDx therapy may limit neutrophil activation and endothelial dysfunction, key factors of the increased cardiovascular risk of hemodialysis patients.3
