Aim The objective of the study was to compare the efficacy and safety of oral paricalcitol with oral calcitriol for treating secondary hyperparathyroidism. Methods We conducted the first multicenter open-labelled parallel group randomized controlled trial in 66 patients on dialysis. Patients were randomized to paricalcitol or calcitriol at a 3:1 dose ratio and adjusted to maintain intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) level between 150–300 pg/mL, serum calcium ≤2.74 mmol/L and calcium-phosphate prod...

Background: With the various twin-bag systems available on the market, we decided to conduct a therapeutic equivalence study comparing ANDY-Disc (Fresenius Medical Care, Bad Homburg, Germany) with UltraBag (Baxter, Deerfield, IL) in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) therapy. Methods: This multicenter, open-label, parallel-group, randomized trial is designed to show the therapeutic equivalence of ANDY-Disc with UltraBag. All CAPD patients from the 6 participating center...

♦ Objective: In the present study, we undertook to establish therapeutic equivalence with respect to peritonitis and technique failure between the Carex disconnect system (B. Braun Carex, Mirandola, Italy) and the standard Ultra system (Baxter Healthcare, Tokyo, Japan) in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). ♦ Design: This multicenter, parallel group, randomized controlled trial involved 363 prevalent CAPD patients from 8 centers. The primary endpoint was peritonitis rat...
