The viral genome was(More)
INTRODUCTION Knowledge of prognostic factors in end-stage renal disease patients has improved dialysis management and methods for reducing morbidity and mortality, underlining the importance of identification, prevention and control of these factors. OBJECTIVE Identify factors affecting prognosis (survival or death) in hemodialysis patients at the(More)
