Introduction and Aims: Oral protein supplementation and exercise training are often prescribed in patients undergoing chronic hemodialysis (HD), however the long-term benefits of each of these therapies are not well established. The primary objective of this study was to determine if 12 months of intradialytic oral protein supplementation, with and without concomitant intradialytic endurance exercise training (cycling), improves physical function and markers of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk in HD patients.
