A kinetic model based on first principles, for β(2)-microglobulin, is presented to obtain precise parameter estimates for individual patient. To reduce the model complexity, the number of model parameters was reduced using a priori identifiability analysis. The model validity was confirmed with the clinical data of ten renal patients on post-dilution(More)
BACKGROUND Maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients universally suffer from excess toxin load. Hemodiafiltration (HDF) has shown its potential in better removal of small as well as large sized toxins, but its efficacy is restricted by inter-compartmental clearance. Intra-dialytic exercise on the other hand is also found to be effective for removal of toxins;(More)
The design of optimal model based experiments is finding increasing use in various fields including chemical, pharmaceutical, biological engineering, and biomedicine. The traditional Model Based Optimal Experimental Design (MBOED) techniques focus on improving the parameter precision but do not consider the undesired possibility of increasing the(More)
BACKGROUND Cool dialysate is often recommended for prevention of intra-dialytic hypotensive episodes in maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients. However, its effect on toxin removal is not studied. It is known that inter-compartmental resistance is the main barrier for toxin removal. Cool dialysate can potentially increase this resistance by vasoconstriction(More)
