Chronic Kidney Disease Prognosis Consortium (CKD-PC)

Chronic Kidney Disease Prognosis Consortium (CKD-PC) is a research group, composed of investigators who are willing to share data for the purpose of collaborative meta-analyses to study prognosis in CKD.

CKD-PC was established in 2009 by Kidney Disease: Improving Global Outcomes (KDIGO) (sponsored by the U.S. National Kidney Foundation) and tasked with compiling and meta-analyzing the best available data to provide a more comprehensive evaluation of the associations of kidney measures such as glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and albuminuria with various clinical outcomes, with implications for improving the definition and staging of CKD. The CKD-PC currently consists of 50 cohorts, which arise from either general, high-risk, or CKD populations.
