Predominantly based on North American and European studies, 30% to 40% declines in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) over a few years are strongly associated with the risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and have been proposed as surrogate endpoints of ESRD for clinical research. However, this association has not been systematically quantified in Asian populations. To do this we studied adult Japanese patients with baseline eGFR 10-59 ml/min/1.73m2. Changes in eGFR from baseline… CONTINUE READING
