    This study was lunched by the Institute of Nephrology, Peking University First Hospital from April 2011. The other 6 PD centers participated into this study include Renal Division of Peking University Third Hospital, Huashan Hospital of Fudan University, the Second Affiliated Hospital of Harbin Medical University, Peking University People’s Hospital, the First Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine, General Hospital of NingXia Medical University. Up to 1st Dec 2011, a cohort of 2409 patients and a cross-sectional of 851 patients were enrolled into this study. The integrity and accuracy of the database was fairly good, that the missing rate of most key variables was less than 5%. Data integration and verification were finished in Feb 2012.

  • Publications and work in progress:
    Primary results of main subject were presented on the first interim report meeting in May 2012. The manuscript of main subject (Impact of Individual and Environmental Socioeconomic Status on Peritoneal dialysis Outcomes: a Retrospective Multi-center cohort study) was published in Nov 2012 (PloS One 2012; 7(11):e50766). After that, a web meeting and several telephone meetings were held in Dec 2012 to determine the further analysis on cohort data. Totally 11 sub-subjects were proposed in this meeting. Up to April 2016, 7 sub-subjects have been completed and and published. Among them, 5 articles have published on SCI-cited Journal, i.e. PloS One 2013; 8(11): e80846; PloS One 2014; 9(1): e82342; PloS One 2014; 9(5): e95894; Perit Dial Int 2014; 34(4): 447-55; Perit Dial Int 2016 Epub), 2 articles published on Chinese Journal (Chinese Journal of Nephrology and Chinese Journal of Blood Purification). The data analysis are still undergoing for the rest sub-subjects.


Learning or Research objectives:

The main goal of this retrospective multi-center study was to explore the impacts of individual and environmental socioeconomic status (SES) on peritonitis incidence, patient survival and technical survival in patients on peritoneal dialysis (PD) in China. This study would be helpful to provide evidences for clinicians to implement the PD treatment for patients with different SES backgrounds, and for health-policy makers to explore the potential strategies for developing PD programs in regions with various SES levels in China as well as in other developing countries. Sub-projects would focus on the impact of various comorbidities, cardiovascular risk factors, nutritional status, and psychological factors and PD patients’ survival.
