Background: This study is a prospective, randomized, single-blind, clinical trial over 12 months involving 60 stable hemodialysis patients comparing standard high-flux polysulfone dialyzer membranes with a novel high-flux polysulfone dialyzer membrane (Helixone; Fresenius Medical Care, St Wendel, Germany) modified in the fiber-spinning process to enhance middle-molecule clearance through changing the distribution of pore size and increased filtration.
