Response to Letter Regarding Article, “Proteinuria, but Not eGFR, Predicts Stroke Risk in Chronic Kidney Disease: Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort Study”
We thank Dr Tsuda1 for the interest in our article. Biomarkers collected as part of the Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) study will help us in this important next step exploring the mechanistic pathways related to cerebrovascular disease in chronic kidney disease, including oxidative stress pathways.
