New Paper from the DOPPS Compares International Trends in ESA Utilization and Hemoglobin Levels
Sweeping changes to U.S. dialysis reimbursement and regulatory policies for ESA use in 2011 were expected to reduce ESA utilization and hemoglobin levels. In a paper published in the
Journal of the American Society of Nephrology
, researchers used data from the Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (DOPPS) to estimate and compare time trends in ESA dose and hemoglobin levels among hemodialysis patients in the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Japan. To read more,
PDOPPS: Unifying Efforts to Inform Practice and Improve Global Outcomes in Peritoneal Dialysis
The Peritoneal Dialysis Outcomes and Practice Patterns Study (PDOPPS) is designed to advance the understanding of optimal practices for peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. In a paper published recently in the journal
Peritoneal Dialysis International
, researchers describe their methods to collect and analyze data that will lead to improved patient care. To learn more about this paper,

Emotional and Financial Experiences of Kidney Donors over the past 50 Years
Most kidney donors view their experience positively, but some donors experience negative outcomes related to donation. Researchers from the Renal and Lung Living Donors Evaluation Study (RELIVE) recently published findings in the
Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology
(CJASN) that examine the factors that shape these outcomes for living kidney donors.

Complications in Recipients of Deceased and Living Donor Liver Transplants
Adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation is performed with increasing frequency at major transplantation centers, but too few cases are performed at any one center to discern reliable information about the risks and complications of this procedure.
To address this knowledge gap, Adult-to-Adult Living Donor Liver Transplantation Cohort Study (A2ALL) researchers analyzed data on over 1,000 liver transplant recipients. The authors of the study used statistical models to compare probabilities of complications and their resolution.
