The CRIC study provides unique and valuable knowledge about chronic kidney disease
The CRIC Study was established in 2001 by the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) to improve the understanding of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and related cardiovascular illness. The study’s goals are:
- To examine risk factors for progression of CKD and cardiovascular disease,
- To develop models that identify high-risk subgroups,
- To assist in the development of treatment trials and therapies.
The CRIC Study has successfully enrolled over 3900 people with CKD. The study’s 3rd phase will begin in 2013 when an additional 1500 people with CKD will be invited to join the study.
