Until 4 years ago I worked in a large hospital dialysis unit. I have seen patients come onto dialysis with CIN. When I talked with patients who had had the dye tests and lost kidney function, I wondered what could be done to reduce the risk of the side effect. This seems to be a procedure that any large hospital ought to be interested in trying out through clinical trial procedures, especially in light of the positive results shown in prior trials.
I called the company yesterday to find out more about the price they anticipate for this equipment, but so far no response. Anyone know what the business plan says?
Don't want to start a new topic for it, and it sort of fits: The registration study began Jan 2012 and according to clinicaltrials.gov the projected end of data collection is May 2013. The company confirmed in Nov 2012. I think the May 2013 is an oversimplification because of the complex design, but there ought to be something to say in public by Fall.
