Previous reports of cancer after kidney transplantation have been limited by small numbers of patients in single-center studies and incomplete ascertainment of cases in large registries. We examined rates of malignancies among first-time recipients of deceased or living donor kidney transplantations in 1995-2001 (n = 35 765) using Medicare billing claims.(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is recognized as an independent cardiovascular disease risk state. The relationship between CKD and cardiovascular disease in volunteer and general populations has not been explored. METHODS The National Kidney Foundation Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP) is a community-based health-screening program to raise(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasing in the United States, caused in part by older age and increasing prevalences of hypertension and type 2 diabetes. CKD is silent and undetected until advanced stages. The study of populations with earlier stages of kidney disease may improve outcomes of CKD. METHODS The Kidney Early(More)

For the highly efficient extraction of the N-glycoproteome, a novel solid-phase extraction method based on oxime click chemistry has been developed. With the use of a newly synthesized aminooxy-functionalized magnetic nanoparticle, the oxidized glycan chains on glycopeptides readily react with the aminooxy groups through oxime click chemistry, resulting in(More)
