The BISTRO trial is a NIHR HTA funded pragmatic, multicentre randomised controlled trial (RCT) designed to test whether taking regular measurements with a bioimpedance device, which gives information about body composition, improves outcomes for people who have newly started haemodialysis treatment for kidney failure.
The BISTRO trial is based in the UK and has opened for recruitment on 6th April 2017.
We launched the BISTRO trial sites in several waves, starting in the first quarter of 2017. Currently 34 UK sites are participating.
