The FTO gene polymorphism is associated with end-stage renal disease: two large independent case-control studies in a general population.


BACKGROUND Genome-wide association studies identified the FTO (fat mass and obesity gene) gene as an important determinant of body weight. More recently, the FTO gene was reported to be associated with other outcomes, including major risk factors for chronic kidney disease (CKD). We investigated the role of this gene in the risk of end-stage renal disease… (More)
