BACKGROUND Protein-energy wasting (PEW), inflammation and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) clearly contribute to the high mortality in chronic dialysis. Our aim was to examine the presence of additive interaction between these three risk factors in their association with long-term mortality in dialysis patients. METHODS Patients from a prospective multi-centre cohort study among ESRD patients starting with their first dialysis treatment [the Netherlands Co-operative Study on the Adequacy of… CONTINUE READING
