AbstractAbstract AbstractSummary PDFSupplementary Material
The KoreaN Cohort Study for Outcomes in Patients With Chronic Kidney Disease (KNOW-CKD) was launched in 2011 with the support of the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency. The study was designed with the aim of exploring the various clinical features and characteristics of chronic kidney disease (CKD) in Koreans, and elucidating the risk factors for CKD progression and adverse outcomes of CKD. For the cohort study, nephrologists at 9 tertiary university-affiliated hospitals participated in patient recruitment and follow-up. Biostatisticians and epidemiologists also participated in the basic design and structuring of the study. From 2011 until 2016, the KNOW-CKD Phase I recruited 2238 adult patients with CKD from stages G1 to G5, who were not receiving renal replacement therapy. The KNOW-CKD Phase II recruitment was started in 2019, with an enrollment target of 1500 subjects, focused on diabetic nephropathy and hypertensive kidney diseases in patients with reduced kidney function who are presumed to be at a higher risk of adverse outcomes. As of 2021, the KNOW-CKD investigators have published articles in the fields of socioeconomics, quality of life, nutrition, physical activity, renal progression, cardiovascular disease and outcomes, anemia, mineral bone disease, serum and urine biomarkers, and international and inter-ethnic comparisons. The KNOW-CKD researchers will elaborate a prediction model for various outcomes of CKD such as the development of end-stage kidney disease, major adverse cardiovascular events, and death.
Korean summary
KNOW-CKD 코호트 연구는 전국적 규모의 다기관 만성콩팥병 장기 추적 코호트 연구로서 2011년 질병관리청의 후원으로 시작된 연구이다. 이 연구는 우리나라 만성콩팥병의 임상적인 경과와 합병증, 신기능 악화 정도와 심혈관계 사건, 사망 등 주요 사건의 발생 위험 요인들을 규명하고자 기획되었다. 궁극적으로 KNOW-CKD 연구는 말기신부전으로의 진행과 사망, 심혈관계 주요 사건 등 만성콩팥병의 예후 예측 모델을 구축하는 것을 목표로 한다.
