Prognostic utility of estimated albumin excretion rate in chronic kidney disease: results from the Study of Heart and Renal Protection.
Estimated albumin excretion rate (eAER) provides a better estimate of 24 hour albuminuria than albumin:creatinine ratio (ACR). However, whether eAER is superior to ACR in predicting end-stage renal disease (ESRD), vascular events (VE) or death is uncertain.
The prognostic utility of ACR and eAER (estimated from ACR, sex, age and race) to predict mortality, ESRD and VE was compared using Cox proportional hazards regression among 5552 participants...Expand abstract
