The urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio is a reliable indicator for evaluating complications of chronic kidney disease and progression in IgA nephropathy in China.

This study investigated the correlation between the albumin-to-creatinine ratio in the urine and 24-hour urine proteinuria and whether the ratio can predict chronic kidney disease progression even mor...

The Impact of Creatinine Clearance Rate, Daily Urinary Albumin, and Their Joint Effect on Predicting Death in Diabetic Inpatients After Discharge: An Observational Study.

Renal clearance function and urinary albumin excretion are important markers for diabetic nephropathy. We assessed whether the creatinine clearance rate (CCR) and daily urinary albumin (DUA) excretion...

OS 01-06 LOW GRADE ALBUMINURIA IS A PREDICTOR OF INCIDENT HYPERTENSION AND CARDIOVASCULAR MORTALITY BUT IS NOT A PREDICTOR OF INCIDENT TYPE 2 DIABETES.

Microalbuminuria is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality but whether lower levels of urine albumin excretion similarly predict CVD is uncertain. We investigated associations between ...

A New Gender-Specific Formula to Estimate 24-Hour Urine Protein from Protein to Creatinine Ratio.

The quantification of proteinuria with the protein to creatinine ratio (PCR) is influenced by the excretion of creatinine, which, in turn, varies according to muscle mass and hence, to gender.

The prevalence of albuminuria among diabetic patients in a primary care setting in Singapore.

Microalbuminuria is an early sign of kidney damage. The prevalence of microalbuminuria in Singapore has been reported to be 36.0%-48.5%. However, the prevalence of microalbuminuria reported in these s...

Early Screening and Diagnosis of CKD

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health problem. The prevalence of CKD in adults in China was 10.8%. Albuminuria measurement and estimating glomerular filtration rate (GFR) ...

VALERIA: Valsartan in Combination With Lisinopril in Hypertensive Patients With Microalbuminuria

The purpose of this study is to compare if the combination of valsartan 320 mg/lisinopril 20 mg versus the monotherapies of lisinopril 40 mg or valsartan 320 mg will result in a greater de...

Efficacy and Safety of MT-3995 in Patients With Diabetic Nephropathy

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of MT-3995 in subjects with diabetic nephropathy, compared with placebo, using urine albumin- to-creatinine ratio (UACR) in the first ...

To Compare the Response Rate of Noradrenaline vs. Terlipressin in Hepatorenal Syndrome in Patients With Acute on Chronic Liver Failure

Continous infusion of nor adrenaline + albumin Continous infusion of terlipressin + albumin Response will assessed at every 48 hour (i) Complete response: Decrease in serum creatinine to 1...

Effects of Dapagliflozin on Central Hemodynamics and Urine Albumin Excretion in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes.

This study is designed to test the hypothesis that the treatment-induced reductions in the ambulatory aortic pressure are more pronounced in the group of dapagliflozin than in the group of...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition in which albumin level in blood (SERUM ALBUMIN) is below the normal range. Hypoalbuminemia may be due to decreased hepatic albumin synthesis, increased albumin catabolism, altered albumin distribution, or albumin loss through the urine (ALBUMINURIA).

An amino acid that occurs in vertebrate tissues and in urine. In muscle tissue, creatine generally occurs as phosphocreatine. Creatine is excreted as CREATININE in the urine.

Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.

The ratio of the number of conceptions (CONCEPTION) including LIVE BIRTH; STILLBIRTH; and fetal losses, to the mean number of females of reproductive age in a population during a set time period.
