“The use of metabolomics has been instrumental in identifying new biomarkers of Chronic Kidney Disease…”
“The Artificial Implantable Kidney Team at the University of California San Francisco suggested that they are continuing to make “good progress” on pre-clinical studies (research that begins before human testing) and are continuing to move toward human trials with no further anticipated delays. ”
“Addition of diuretics, CCB, or ACEI to ARB was equally effective for the control of hypertension in CKD, while, in terms of urinary excretion of protein, diuretics may be better than CCB.”
