Candidate gene association study of coronary artery calcification in chronic kidney disease: Findings from the CRIC study (Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort)
Polymorphism, Single Nucleotide
Renal Insufficiency, Chronic
We identified several loci associated with CAC in CKD that also relate to MI in a general population sample. CKD imparts a high risk of CHD and may provide a useful setting for discovery of novel CHD genes and pathways.
