Primary Completion Date: June 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
with PPI
CKD with PPI use, follow up at least 5 years began PPI use
with or without Pneumonia outcome
Patients were eligible for inclusion if they received any PPIs treatment between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2002 and had been diagnosed with pneumonia between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2008 in an inpatient setting.

Detailed Description:
The study used data from Taiwan Health Insurance Research Database; the investigators conducted a population-based cohort study in Taiwan. Case consisted of all patients who had a first diagnosis of chronic kidney disease for the period between 1997 and 2008. The investigators utilized the use of Proton pump inhibitor from chronic kidney disease patients.
