Pediatric Investigation for Genetic Factors Linked with Renal Progression (PediGFR)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
The Pediatric Investigation for Genetic Factors Associated with Renal Progression (PediGFR) (RO1-DK082394) is an international collaborative study among three large prospective cohort studies of children with chronic kidney disease. The participating parent cohort studies are the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children (CKiD), the Effect of Strict Blood Pressure Control and ACE Inhibition on CRF Progression in Pediatric Patients (ESCAPE), and the Cardiovascular Comorbidity in Children with Chronic Kidney Disease (4C) study. In these cohorts, pediatric subjects with CKD have been prospectively followed with standardized measurements for renal progression. The dbGaP data upload will utilize the structure of sub-studies to include the genotype and baseline phenotype for the three cohorts, as well as the RBC trait and anemia data for a sub-study under PI Susan Furth: Role of Genetic Variation in the Anemia of Chronic Kidney Disease (K24DK078737).
In brief PediGFR is a prospective study of children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) to determine genetic factors associated with ... (Show More)
