Low High‐Sensitivity C‐ #Reactive Protein Level in Korean Patients With Chronic #Kidney Disease and Its Predictive Significance for Cardiovascular Events, Mortality, and Adverse Kidney Outcomes: Results From KNOW‐CKD

Inflammation levels are lower in East Asians than in Western people. We studied the association between high‐sensitivity hs‐CRP (C‐reactive protein) and adverse outcomes in Korean patients with chronic kidney disease. Methods and Results We included 2018 participants from the KNOW‐CKD (Korean Cohort Study for Outcome in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease) between April 2011 and February 2016. The primary outcome was a composite of extended … Continue reading Low High‐Sensitivity C‐ #Reactive Protein Level in Korean Patients With Chronic #Kidney Disease and Its Predictive Significance for Cardiovascular Events, Mortality, and Adverse Kidney Outcomes: Results From KNOW‐CKD
