Editorial on the relationship between suPAR and CKD, published in NEJM

“A suPAR Biomarker for Chronic Kidney Disease”, published in the New England Journal of Medicine

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a global epidemic and often a death sentence in areas without access to renal-replacement therapies. Detecting CKD early is crucial, but current methods only identify decreased renal function after significant damage. There is a critical need for new biomarkers to accurately assess the risk of CKD while kidney function remains good, increasing the chance that treatments can slow or stop its progression.

Studies proving that interventions based on suPAR levels are effective could establish a strong link between suPAR and CKD.
