    Kidney Int 78:705-7. 2010
    ..Future controlled studies are needed to establish the efficacy of this simulation training in reducing discomfort and adverse renal biopsy outcomes in patients...

    Juling Zhou
    Department of Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, Alabama, USA
    Kidney Int 78:550-60. 2010
    ..But the association was significant when the analysis was confined to males. Clearly more studies need to be done to evaluate the utility of CD14 as a marker for outcomes in ADPKD...

    J Am Soc Nephrol 16:905-16. 2005
    ..Therefore, the positional candidate gene, Kif12, fulfills the major criteria for QTL gene discovery established by the Complex Trait Consortium, and, thus, it is proposed that Kif12 is a cpk modifier gene...

    Am J Nephrol 30:413-7. 2009
    ..Unfortunately, none of these controls fulfills this premise across a wide range of experimental conditions; consequently, none of them can be recommended for universal use...

    Luiz F Onuchic
    Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
    Am J Med Genet 110:346-52. 2002
    ..This further refinement of the PKHD1 interval will facilitate efforts to identify the PKHD1 gene by positional cloning. These data also provide additional, highly polymorphic markers for haplotype-based diagnostic testing for ARPKD...

    Xiaoying Hou
    Division of Nephrology, Department of Medicine, University of Alabama at Birmingham, USA
    J Clin Invest 109:533-40. 2002
    ..We therefore propose that the single epithelial cilium is important in the functional differentiation of polarized epithelia and that ciliary dysfunction underlies the PKD phenotype in cpk mice...
