Specific protein in the blood can be early predictor of end-stage kidney disease and death

hickson 20Figure 203-1Mayo Clinic researchers in Rochester, Minnesota, collaborated with the University of Mississippi Medical Center on a recent study, “Troponin T as a Predictor of End-Stage Renal Disease and All-Cause Death in African-American and Whites From Hypertensive Families.” For the first time, this study identified the presence of a specific protein in the blood used to look for heart damage. This protein can be an early indicator of end-stage renal disease — and ultimately death — in people with hypertension, regardless of race or baseline kidney function. The study was published online last week, and will be in the November issue of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.
