Journal Watch - Hazard Ratio
Serum Phosphorus and Survival on PD
Data from 5,847 PD patients between 2014-2017 from seven countries in the PDOPPS study found that compared to an optimal range of 3.5-4.5mg/dL, the hazard ratio (HR) for all-cause mortality was 19% higher when phosphorus was 5.5-6.5 and 53% higher when phosphorus was greater than 6.5. When 6 months of data were examined, the linkage was even stronger.
