BACKGROUND In hemodialysis (HD) patients, serum alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and parathyroid hormone (PTH) derangements are associated with mortality, but outcome-predictability using ALP and PTH in peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients remains uncertain. METHODS In a cohort of 9244 adult PD patients from a large national dialysis organization (entry period 2001 - 2006, with follow-up through 2009), we used multivariable Cox models adjusted for case-mix and laboratory covariates to examine the… CONTINUE READING
