Researchers detected new and known kidney stone risk genes through a genome-wide association study involving thousands of Icelanders.

The study, funded last month by the NIH, will use SRM-MS to identify proteins from a subset of promising pathways that are associated with DKD patients' progression to end-stage disease.

Using chromosomal microarrays, a Columbia University Medical Center-led team identified large genomic imbalances in pediatric chronic kidney disease, linking them to other disorders.

The Australian company has also inked a deal to launch its proteomics-based kidney disease test in China. 

ViveBio plans to develop an assay based on inflammatory protein and mRNA biomarkers for laboratory-developed and companion diagnostic testing.

Researchers found that the allele, which is linked to fast disease progression and was thought to affect mostly African Americans, is also present in other populations.

The data show that RG-012 can enhance the effect of Sanofi's kidney protectant ramipril and suggest the microRNA drug might have use in other chronic kidney diseases.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – An international team of researchers has developed a qPCR-based assay to detect kidney transplant patients who are at high risk of acute rejection.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Medical College of Wisconsin said on Wednesday that it has been awarded a four-year, $1.5 million grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to investigate genetic variants that may contribute to end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical College and the Rogosin Institute have developed a next-generation sequencing approach for diagnosing autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease, which they showed could equal or exceed the efficiency and accuracy of current Sanger sequenc
