Official Title
Genetics of Atherosclerosis in Renal Disease

Muredach Reilly, MB


Why is this study being done?
Gen-CRIC (Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort) is a candidate gene/pathway human genetic study of inflammatory, metabolic, and cardiovascular (CVD) outcomes in the NIH-sponsored multi-center CRIC study (cohort study of CVD and renal outcomes) in patients with mild-moderate chronic kidney disease (CKD).

How long will this study run?
Cohort recruitment will be complete fall 2006 and genotyping will proceed in 2007 with analyses of cross-sectional outcomes [biomarkers and coronary artery calcification (CAC)] in 2007 to 2008 and longitudinal outcomes (individual and composite of hard clinical CVD events) from 2009 to 2011.
