Quest Diagnostics, a strong supporter of the recommended testing for CKD as described in the original NKF-KDOQI guidelines, was among the first laboratories to provide estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) calculation along with all requests for serum creatinine.
The approval was based on the largest liver transplant study to date, which showed that Zortress plus reduced tacrolimus led to comparable efficacy and 10mL/min higher renal function as measured by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) for Zortress compared to standard tacrolimus at 12 months.
The company said the approval was based on the largest liver transplant study to date, which showed that Zortress plus reduced tacrolimus led to comparable efficacy and 10mL/min higher renal function as measured by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) for Zortress compared to standard tacrolimus at 12 months.
A meta-analysis conducted by the Chronic Kidney Disease Prognosis Consortium concluded that elevations in urinary albumin and blood albumin to creatinine ratio, which indicate kidney damage, as well as a reduction in the estimated glomerular filtration rate of the kidneys predict an increased risk of death from all causes over 2.
The patients with AF were older and heavier, had higher blood pressure levels and urinary albumin-creatinine ratios, and had lower estimated glomerular filtration rates than did the patients without AF.
