Press Release
  • Data spotlights innovations and therapeutic practices focused on the best possible outcomes for dialysis patients


New Orleans -

Baxter International Inc. (NYSE:BAX), a global innovator in renal care, today announced the presentation of 27 abstracts at the American Association of Nephrology (ASN) Kidney Week, Oct. 31 - Nov. 5, to support greater scientific exchange across the continuum of renal care. Key Baxter-supported data being presented focuses on the value of innovative technologies and therapeutic approaches that may help broaden access to quality care, which is an increasing challenge as the number of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients grows globally and is anticipated to increase capacity demands and financial pressures on current renal care models.

“As a leader in therapy and technology innovations, it is not only our responsibility, but also our privilege to support scientific exchange that may help continue to transform standards of renal care,” said Dheerendra Kommala, M.D., vice president, Medical Affairs, Baxter. “We are also committed to supporting new research across the continuum of care, as many ESRD patients need to transfer from one therapy to another along their medical journey.”
