While this deeper understanding of the disease has led to a number of opportune areas of study for clinical trials, there are numerous challenges ahead from the discovery of the underlying disease processes to the identification and recruitment of the target population.

Now known to be an independent risk factor for numerous adverse health outcomes – especially cardiovascular disease (CVD) – chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a global public health issue. Over time, the emergence of a classification system historically allowed for the improved identification and risk stratification of CKD, and with it came a better understanding of its related implications to comorbid disease and mortality.

While this deeper understanding of the disease has led to a number of opportune areas of study for clinical trials, there are numerous challenges ahead from the discovery of the underlying disease processes to the identification and recruitment of the target population.
