Influence of the PEPA Membrane on the Undernutrition Syndrome Inflammation in Chronic Hemodialysis

Brief description of study

NutriPEPA2 is a randomized, single-blind, prospective, multicenter trial, in two parallel arms to confirm that the adsorbent PEPA membrane may decrease mortality related to inflammation and malnutrition encountered in HD or HDF-treated stage 5 renal failure compared to a non-adsorbent synthetic membrane.

Detailed Study Description

The objective of NutriPEPA2 study is to demonstrate that the use of an adsorbent membrane (PEPA-Poly Ester Poly Arylate synthetic co-polymer membrane) decreases undernutrition (often associated with inflammation) and consequently morbidity, comparing one year mortality in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), with severe Protein-Energy Wasting (PEW), treated with dialysis using a non-adsorbent synthetic membrane (Polysulfone or Polyethersulfone) versus an adsorbent membrane (PEPA).
