Two Novel Equations to Estimate Kidney Function in Persons Aged 70 Years or Older
BACKGROUND In older adults, current equations to estimate glomerular filtration rate (GFR) are not validated and may misclassify elderly persons in terms of their stage of chronic kidney disease. Expand

An estimated glomerular filtration rate equation for the full age spectrum.
BACKGROUND Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is accepted as the best indicator of kidney function and is commonly estimated from serum creatinine (SCr)-based equations. Separate equations have beenExpand

Cholesterol and the risk of renal dysfunction in apparently healthy men.
Despite extensive knowledge about abnormal lipid patterns in patients with end-stage renal disease, the association between cholesterol and the development of renal dysfunction is unclear. WeExpand

Estimating glomerular filtration rate for the full age spectrum from serum creatinine and cystatin C
Background. We recently published and validated the new serum creatinine (Scr)‐based full‐age‐spectrum equation (FAScrea) for estimating the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) for healthy andExpand

Prevalence and correlates of gout in a large cohort of patients with chronic kidney disease: the German Chronic Kidney Disease (GCKD) study.
BACKGROUND Reduced kidney function is a risk factor for hyperuricaemia and gout, but limited information on the burden of gout is available from studies of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD).Expand

Educational level as a determinant of access to and outcomes after kidney transplantation in the United States.
BACKGROUND Disparities in access to kidney transplantation exist, yet few studies investigated educational level as a determinant of access to and outcomes after kidney transplantation. STUDYExpand

Blood pressure measures and risk of chronic kidney disease in men.
BACKGROUND High blood pressure (BP) has been associated with a decrease in kidney function. However, it remains unclear which BP measure best predicts impaired kidney function. METHODS We comparedExpand

Alcohol and kidney damage: a Janus-faced relationship.
It has been known for a long time that excessive consumption of alcohol has adverse effects, including adverse impact on kidneys and kidney disease. Recently, observational evidence has been providedExpand

A Lifetime of Allograft Function with Kidneys from Older Donors.
Strategies to increase expanded criteria donor (ECD) transplantation are needed. We quantified the extent to which ECD kidneys provide recipients with a lifetime of allograft function by determiningExpand

Access to kidney transplantation among the elderly in the United States: a glass half full, not half empty.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Few elderly ESRD patients are ever wait-listed for deceased-donor transplantation (DDTX), and waiting list outcomes may not reflect access to transplantation in this group.Expand
