The whole initial Brazilian experience with short-duration in-center daily hemodialysis is summarized here. The study was performed at a time when low-flux membrane and nonproportional dialysis represented the standard dialysis treatment in Brazil. Five patients were treated for 2 years. The subject is developed in a way to narrate the efforts to set the research project and summarize the findings, meeting presentations, and publications that derived from the project. At the end of the study, the main benefits observed consisted of alleviation of the end-stage renal disease anemia; reduction of the frequency of complications during dialysis sessions; a lower degree of azotemia; easier blood pressure control; and improvements in acid-base status, mineral metabolism and bone disease, nutrition, and quality of life.
