33% lower mortality with HCQ+AZ, p
=0.28. Retrospective 122 French dialysis patients.
69% lower combined mortality/ICU, p
=0.11, for the subgroup not requiring O2 on diagnosis (slightly earlier treatment).
risk of death, 33.1% lower, RR 0.67, p = 0.28, treatment 56, control 66, adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk.
risk of death/ICU, 38.9% lower, RR 0.61, p = 0.23, treatment 17 of 56 (30.4%), control 28 of 66 (42.4%), NNT 8.3, adjusted per study, odds ratio converted to relative risk.
risk of death/ICU, 68.7% lower, RR 0.31, p = 0.11, treatment 4 of 36 (11.1%), control 11 of 31 (35.5%), NNT 4.1, not requiring O2 on diagnosis (relatively early treatment).

Risk factors for severity of COVID-19 in chronic dialysis
patients from a multicentre French cohort
Risk factors for critical COVID-19 in ESRD patients
Background. Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is an emerging infectious disease, related to severe acute respiratory
syndrome coronavirus 2 infection. Few data are available in patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Methods. We conducted an observational cohort study of COVID-19 patients at 11 dialysis centres in two distinct districts of
France to examine the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of COVID-19 in this population, and to determine risk
factors of disease severity (defined as a composite outcome including intensive care unit admission or death) and mortality.
Results. Among the 2336 patients enrolled, 5.5% had confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis. Of the 122 patients with a follow-up
superior to 28 days, 37% reached the composite outcome and 28% died. Multivariate analysis showed that oxygen therapy
is less effective
