LATE BREAKING CLINICAL TRIALS
The ERA-EDTA will consider abstracts related to unpublished clinical trials for a special “Late breaking clinical trials” session. The following trials will be considered for evaluation if they comply with the required characteristics: - a prospective randomised intervention in renal patients (medication, education, dietetics, physiotherapy, etc…), including at least 100 patients; - a prospective observational study, including at least 500 patients; - approved by an institutional ethical committee; - not previously reported or published. Abstracts may be accepted as oral communications or posters, after being evaluated by the review committee. The LBCT abstracts must be submitted through the congress website from March 6 to 29, 2019. Abstracts that do not meet the criteria above will not be considered for presentation.
The highest scoring abstracts will be presented as free communications, combined with mini lectures from world renowned scientists.
There will be two poster sessions (June 14 and 15, 2019). Posters will be sorted by topic and will remain on display from 7.30 to 17.00 hrs. Presenters must be by their poster during the dedicated session times (9.30-10.45 and 16.30-17.00) to discuss their research with the visiting audience. It will be possible to browse all posters online both onsite (in the e-posters zone) and after the congress on the European Nephrology Portal (ENP - https://www.enp-era-edta.org). This year, once again, the ERA-EDTA is pleased to provide all poster presenters with the opportunity of having their posters printed and delivered free of charge to the congress venue.
