BACKGROUND This study assumed that some patients currently treated at hospital-based haemodialysis centres can be treated with another renal replacement therapy (RRT) modality without any increase in mortality risk and sought to evaluate the monthly cost impact of replacing hospital-based haemodialysis, for which fees are highest, by different proportions(More)
BACKGROUND The occurrence of familial forms of sarcoidosis (OMIM 181100) suggests a genetic predisposition. The involvement of butyrophilin-like 2 (BTNL2) gene (rs2076530 variant) has to be investigated. RESULTS The study performed independent analyses of BTNL2 polymorphism, clinical phenotypes, and outcomes in familial vs. sporadic presentations in 256(More)
BACKGROUND Nephrologists need to better understand the impact of their decisions about long-term treatment strategies. Healthcare planning requires the anticipation of demand. Indicators from ESRD registries are especially difficult to interpret when the underlying dynamic process is not well understood. Therefore, we have developed a statistical tool to(More)
End-stage renal disease is a chronic state that may continue for many years before death. Patients may receive various modalities of renal replacement therapy that vary over time, which we describe as a treatment trajectory. The French health insurance system pays dialysis facilities and professionals various fixed fees according to the dialysis modalities(More)
Group-based trajectory models had a rapid development in the analysis of longitudinal data in clinical research. In these models, the assumption of homoscedasticity of the residuals is frequently made but this assumption is not always met. We developed here an easy-to-perform graphical method to assess the assumption of homoscedasticity of the residuals to(More)
Background The restricted mean survival time (RMST) estimates life expectancy up to a given time horizon and can thus express the impact of a disease. The aim of this study was to estimate the 15-year RMST of a hypothetical cohort of incident patients starting renal replacement therapy (RRT), according to their age, gender and diabetes status, and to(More)
