- The Fourth Homburg evaluation

 

Inclusion Criteria:

Chronic kidney disease KDOQI 2-4

 

Exclusion Criteria:

Systemic immunosuppressive medication
Acute infectious disease

Acute renal injury

 

Baseline Parameters:

Traditional cardiovascular risk factors
Parameters of calcium-phosphate metabolism

Ultrasound renal and splenic resistive indices
Cell counts of monocyte subsets

 

Number of Participants:

444 Participants scheduled to be included (recruitment ongoing)

 

Combined primary cardiovascular outcome:

Any cardiovascular event (acute myocardial infarction; surgical or interventional coronary / cerebrovascular / peripheral-arterial revascularization; stroke [symptoms ≥ 24 hours]; amputation above the ankle; death)

 

Combined primary renal outcome:

Reduction of eGFR ≤50% baseline, ESRD (renal replacement therapy for ≥ 3 months), death

 

Secondary cardiovascular outcome:

Acute myocardial infarction, ischemic stroke (symptoms ≥ 24 hours), cardiovascular death

 

Secondary renal outcome:

Reduction of eGFR ≤50% baseline, ESRD (renal replacement therapy for ≥ 3 months)
