  1. P * - statistical significance for differences between HD, PD and CT groups, TE and NK for quantitative variables - Kruskal Wallis ANOVA, ANOVA one-way ANOVA or Student’s t test
  2. P ** - statistical significance for differences between HD, PD and CT and TE groups for Kruskal Wallis’s ANOVA quantitative variables or ANOVA one-way analysis
  3. Kt / V - dialysis index (volume fraction V purified by clearance K at time t)
  4. NS - no statistically significant relationships were found
