BACKGROUND Tubulointerstitial damage plays an important role in chronic kidney disease (CKD) with proteinuria. Urinary kidney injury molecule 1 (KIM-1) reflects tubular KIM-1 and is considered a sensitive biomarker for early tubular damage. We hypothesized that a decrease in proteinuria by using therapeutic interventions is associated with decreased urinary KIM-1 levels. STUDY DESIGN Post hoc analysis of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, crossover trial. SETTING & PARTICIPANTS… CONTINUE READING
