  1. Incremental PD may preserve residual kidney function longer

    A single-center observational study in Korea followed 347 patients; half started full-dose PD and half started incremental PD. While patient, technique, and peritonitis-free survival were similar between groups, the incremental PD group had a significantly lower risk of losing all of their kidney function (anuria).

  3. Mycophenolate Mofetil (MMF) and Residual Kidney Function in PD

    A small randomized controlled trial of people on PD (N=60) looked at whether the immune-suppressing drug mycophenolate mofetil could help protect residual kidney function. After a year, those who received MMF had significantly higher urine volume and urine Kt/V than controls, with no serious complications.
