Abstract
According to the annual survey of the Japanese Society for Dialysis Therapy Renal Data Registry (JRDR) conducted at the end of 2018, a total of 339,841 patients were receiving dialysis (hereinafter, dialysis patients) in Japan. This survey included an investigation of individual test results for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibody (HCV-Ab), HCV-RNA, and serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT) (glutamic pyruvic transaminase [GPT]). The survey revealed that among dialysis patients in Japan, the prevalence of HBsAg positivity was 1.38% and the prevalence of HCV-Ab positivity was 4.7% at the end of 2018, both of which were markedly lower than the corresponding rates documented in 2007 (9.8% and 4.7%, respectively). The proportion of HCV-RNA-positive patients among all HCV-Ab-positive patients was 37.5%, which was also markedly lower than the percentage recorded in 2007 (64.0%). The prevalence of HBsAg positivity tended to increase as the dialysis vintage increased. The prevalence of HCV-Ab positivity was also not correlated with the dialysis vintage during the first 30 years of dialysis; however, it tended to increase as the dialysis vintage increased beyond the 30th year. University hospital Medical Information Network (UMIN) Clinical Trials Registry, UMIN000018641 . The JRDR was approved by the ethics committee of the JSDT (approval number 1-3) and was registered on August 8, 2015 (accessed June 2, 2020).

BACKGROUND: This study was aimed to estimate the more precise prevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) and anti-hepatitis C virus antibody (anti-HCV) stratified by sex and birth year in Japan. METHODS: Three large-scaled cohorts: first-time blood donors, periodical health check-up, and comprehensive health check-up with lifestyle education (Ningen dock) were used for pooled prevalence of HBsAg and anti-HCV by meta-regression. RESULTS: Trends of birth year-specific prevalence of HBsAg an...

Abstract A nationwide survey of 4325 dialysis facilities was conducted at the end of 2013, among which 4268 (98.7%) responded. The number of new dialysis patients was 38,095 in 2013. Since 2008, the number of new dialysis patients has remained almost the same without any marked increase or decrease. The number of dialysis patients who died in 2013 was 30,751. The dialysis patient population has been growing every year in Japan; it was 314,438 at the end of 2013. The number of dialysis patients p...
