Baxter Presents Data at 58th ERA-EDTA Congress Indicating Theranova May Reduce Cardiovascular Events and Hospitalizations
- Large, multicenter, retrospective study of Colombian dialysis patients indicates cardiovascular events were 35% lower for patients on HDx therapy enabled by Theranova than participants on standard hemodialysis1
- Data from study also show HDx therapy may reduce hospitalization rates up to 18%1

Theranova was designed to deliver HDx therapy, which filters a wider range of molecules from the blood than traditional hemodialysis (HD) filters by targeting effective removal of conventional (500 Da to 25 kDa) and large middle molecules (25 kDa to 45 kDa),2,3,4 allowing for filtration closer to that of the natural kidney.5,6These large middle molecules may be associated with inflammation and cardiovascular disease in patients with kidney failure.2,3,4
“Innovation is fueled by continued scientific study and exchange through meetings like the 58th ERA-EDTA,” said
The new data are from an observational, multicenter, retrospective cohort analysis of more than 1,000 adult prevalent hemodialysis patients followed for up to two years at Baxter Renal Care Services clinics in
Theranova is currently used in more than 40 countries, including
