    Ahsan Alam
    McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada Electronic address
    Am J Kidney Dis 66:564-76. 2015
    ..Several studies have identified TKV as a relevant imaging biomarker for monitoring and predicting disease progression and support its use as a prognostic end point in clinical trials. ..

    Ahsan Alam
    Department of Medicine, Division of Nephrology, Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill University, 687 Pine Avenue West, Ross 2, 39, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1A1, Canada
    BMC Nephrol 14:247. 2013
    ..We hypothesized that elevated TnI levels in chronic stable hemodialysis patients more specifically track with cardiac mortality, and this mechanism is independent of other contributors of cardiac mortality, such as inflammation...

    Ahsan Alam
    Division of Nephrology, McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
    Clin J Am Soc Nephrol 8:460-7. 2013
    ..Its beneficial role has not been consistent in patients with CKD or those undergoing dialysis...

    J Clin Lipidol 6:303-9. 2012
    ..It follows that definitive evidence supporting maximal lowering of LDL-C or maximal dose of statins is still lacking and guidelines, if they are to be evidence-based, should acknowledge this uncertainty...

    Kenrry Chiu
    Department of Medicine, McGill University, Montreal, Canada
    Hemodial Int 16:S39-46. 2012
