OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that some functionally significant variants in the gene encoding member A3 of the ATP Binding Cassette family (ABCA3) are not detected using exon-based sequencing approaches. STUDY DESIGN The first of 2 female siblings who died from neonatal respiratory failure was examined for mutations with sequence analysis of all ABCA3(More)
Patients with CKD are at high risk for adverse safety events because of the complexity of their care and impaired renal function. Using data from our observational study of predialysis patients with CKD enrolled in the Safe Kidney Care study, we estimated the baseline frequency of adverse safety events and determined to what extent these events co-occur. We(More)
BACKGROUND Promoting medication adherence is a recognized challenge for prescribers. In this study, we examine whether lower medication adherence is associated with adverse safety events in individuals with decreased estimated glomerular filtration rates (eGFRs). STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional baseline analysis of prospective cohort. SETTING &(More)
BACKGROUND Health information technology has become common in the care of patients with chronic diseases; however, there are few such applications employed in kidney disease. OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to evaluate the use of a website providing disease-specific safety information by patients with predialysis chronic kidney disease. METHODS As(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Inappropriate medication use is common in the care of patients with CKD. The feasibility of a simple mobile health tool designed to advise patients on safe medication usage in CKD was examined. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS Participants with predialysis CKD (defined as eGFR<60 ml/min per 1.73 m(2)) in the Safe(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Chronic pain in predialysis CKD is not fully understood. This study examined chronic pain in CKD and its relationship with analgesic usage. DESIGN, SETTING, PARTICIPANTS, & MEASUREMENTS Data include baseline visits from 308 patients with CKD enrolled between 2011 and 2013 in the Safe Kidney Care cohort study in Baltimore,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The Agency for Healthcare and Research Quality patient safety indicators track adverse safety events in hospitalized patients but overlook safety incidents specific to CKD. This study considers candidate CKD-pertinent patient safety indicators and compares them with the Agency for Healthcare and Research Quality patient safety(More)
