Effects of Newer Kidney Protective Agents on Kidney Endpoints Provide Implications for Future Clinical Trials
The study assesses the effects of newer kidney protective agents on endpoints, including smaller proportional declines in eGFR to compare relative event rates and the magnitude of observed treatment effects.
They found that in populations at high risk of CKD progression, the relative effects of newer kidney protective therapies are similar across endpoints based on varying eGFR decline thresholds.
