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The ERA-EDTA will consider abstracts related to unpublished clinical trials for a special “Late breaking clinical trials” session.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 (medications, 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 regular evaluation by the review committee.
The LBCT abstracts can be submitted through the congress website from February 22 to March 16, 2018.
Abstracts which do not meet the criteria above will not be considered for presentation.
The top scoring abstracts will be presented as free communications, combined with mini lectures from worldrenowned scientists.
There will be two poster sessions (May 25 and 26, 2018).
Posters will be sorted by topic and will remain on display from 7.30 to 17.00 hrs. Presenters will be by their poster during the dedicated session time (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 and after the congress. Also this year, the ERA-EDTA will be pleased to provide all poster presenters with the opportunity to have their posters printed and delivered free of charge at the congress venue.
