Baxter International Inc (NYSE:BAX) highlighted new data on its novel HDx therapy enabled by the THERANOVA dialyzer at the 54th Congress of the European Renal Association and European Dialysis and Transplant Association (ERA-EDTA), June 3-6. Data from two independent studies concluded that HDx, or expanded hemodialysis therapy, enabled by the THERANOVA dialyzer effectively removed small and mid-sized toxins at similar rates when compared to hemodiafiltration (HDF), another type of dialysis. HDx therapy extends the range of molecules that can be filtered from the blood during dialysis, resulting in a filtration profile that more closely mimics the natural kidney.1 In addition to its clearance profile, HDx enabled by THERANOVA is as simple to perform as conventional hemodialysis (HD) and was designed to work with all HD machines. This allows clinics to offer HDx therapy using existing resources, and eliminates the need for special equipment and added clinic workflow, which is required for HDF. Additionally, HDF cannot be performed effectively for all patients.2
