Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) predicts progression of chronic kidney disease: the Mild to Moderate Kidney Disease (MMKD) Study.
It has not been firmly established whether disturbed calcium-phosphate metabolism affects progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in humans. In this cohort study of 227 nondiabetic patients withExpand

Association of eGFR-Related Loci Identified by GWAS with Incident CKD and ESRD
Family studies suggest a genetic component to the etiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end stage renal disease (ESRD). Previously, we identified 16 loci for eGFR in genome-wide associationExpand

B-type natriuretic peptide concentrations predict the progression of nondiabetic chronic kidney disease: the Mild-to-Moderate Kidney Disease Study.
BACKGROUND Plasma concentrations of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal proBNP (NT-proBNP) are diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers of heart failure and are also increased in patientsExpand
