Chronic Kidney Disease Prognosis Consortium (CKD-PC) is a research group composed of investigators representing cohorts from around the world. Investigators 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). Originally tasked with compiling and meta-analyzing the best available data on kidney measures and clinical outcomes, the CKD-PC currently consists of over 70 cohorts, which arise from general, high-risk, or CKD populations. To date, the CKD-PC has published over 15 high impact papers with important implications for the definition, staging, and management of CKD.
