Limited data are available on cardiovascular risk differences in kidney transplant recipients (KTR) based on ethnicity. METHODS A group of 129 clinically stable age-matched KTR [43 South Asian (SA), 86 Caucasian]) were assessed for plasma total and high-molecular-weight (HMW) adiponectin, cystatin C, apolipoproteins A1 and B, C-reactive protein, uric acid, urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio, estimated… CONTINUE READING
