Brief Summary:

Insights into the cause of kidney failure have emerged from research, but less is known about the epidemiology of less severe forms of kidney disease known both as chronic kidney disease (CKD) or chronic renal insufficiency (CRI).

The Chronic Renal Insufficiency Cohort (CRIC) Study was established to study the consequences of CKD with a particular focus on cardiovascular illness like myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke. The CRIC Study will identify high-risk subgroups of individuals with CRI, informing future treatment trials, and development of preventive therapies.

CRIC is an observational study that to date, over 5000 participants have been enrolled in the CRIC cohort. The goal for CRIC 2018 which began in July 2018 is to follow participants for an additional 5 years. To maximize the opportunities inherent in this unique scientific resource, the CRIC Study will, in its next phase, pursue a multifaceted strategy involving: (a) continued follow-up of the cohort and investigation of a broad array of factors associated with the progression and consequences of CKD utilizing state-of-the-art methods in biostatistics and bioinformatics; and (b) the use of novel remote data collection techniques to identify trajectories of kidney function and cardiovascular risk sub-phenotypes.

CRIC Cohort
CRIC Subcohort

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The slope of GFR is the primary outcome; Primary outcomes regarding CVD will focus on clinical events indicative of ischemic heart disease, CHF, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease supplemented by radiographic evidence of progressive CVD [ Time Frame: 5 yrs ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. 1.Onset of ESRD; 2.Significant loss of renal function; 3.Composite clinical outcome defined by the occurrence of either 50% decline, or 25 l/min/1.73 m2 decline in GFR from baseline, or onset of ESRD; 4. Slope of change in proteinuria over time. [ Time Frame: 5 yrs ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
DNA, urine, serum, blood

Sampling Method:   Probability Sample
Study Population
In Phase I of the CRIC Study a total of 3,939 individuals across the spectrum of severity of kidney disease were enrolled to ensure that a sufficient number of patients reach the primary study endpoints of kidney disease progression and cardiovascular events. During CRIC Phase III, an additional 1,560 older participants with milder severity of kidney disease were recruited. The 1,560 new cohort members, compared with participants recruited in Phase I, have higher ranges of age and more preserved kidney function, and most have proteinuria. The population of 1560 new recruits have similar characteristics as the current CRIC cohort: ~50% with Diabetes, ~50% female, ~45% white and ~45% African-American.

Inclusion Criteria:

During the screening visit a blood sample will be tested to indirectly check kidney function based on the serum creatinine level:

  • Age Range: 45 - 79 years
  • Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR): 45 - 70 mL/min/1.73m²
  • Proteinuria: varies dependent on eGRF

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Unable or unwilling to provide informed consent
  • Previously received dialysis (peritoneal and/or hemodialysis) lasting more than one month
  • Prior organ or bone marrow transplant
  • Prior renal transplant
  • Received immunosuppressive or other immunotherapy for primary renal disease or systemic vasculitis that affects the kidneys (i.e., anti-GCM, ANCA, SLE, IgA nephropathy, cryoglobulin, etc.) within the past six months before enrollment
  • Received chemotherapy or alkylating agents for systemic cancer
  • Known cirrhosis
  • NYHA Class III or IV heart failure at baseline
  • Previous diagnosis of multiple myeloma or renal carcinoma
  • Previously diagnosed polycystic kidney disease
  • Known HIV infection and/or AIDS
  • Pregnant or breast-feeding women
  • Currently participating in an interventional clinical trial (i.e., primarily trials of therapeutic agents that may have an effect on renal or cardiovascular outcomes).
  • Institutionalized (e.g., prisoner, nursing home resident, skilled nursing facility resident)
  • Appears unlikely or unable to participate in the required study procedures as assessed by the investigator, study coordinator or designee.
