PMID:  23027732     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
African Americans have a disproportionate burden of chronic kidney disease (CKD), which tends to have an earlier onset and a more rapid progression in this population. Many of the factors responsible for the rapid progression of CKD in African Americans are detectable by screening and are modifiable with prompt therapy.
