    Although recommended approaches to CKD management are achieved less often in Hispanics than in non-Hispanics, whether long-term outcomes differ between these groups is unclear. In a prospective longitudinal analysis of ...
  • Association between insurance status and mortality in individuals with albuminuria: an observational cohort study. 

    Saunders, MR; Ricardo, AC; Chen, J; Chin, MH; Lash, JP (BioMed Central, 2016-03-09)
    BACKGROUND: In the general population, the association between uninsurance and mortality is well established. We sought to evaluate the association of health insurance status with mortality among working-age participants ...
  • A Novel Model of Surgical Injury in Adult Rat Kidney: A “Pouch Model” 

    Litbarg, Natalia O.; Vujicic, Snezana; Setty, Suman; Sethupathi, Periannan; Dunea, George; Arruda, Jose A.; Singh, Ashok K. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-10)
    Regenerative mechanisms after surgical injury have been studied in many organs but not in the kidney. Studying surgical injury may provide new insights into mechanisms of kidney regeneration. In rodent models, extrarenal ...
