Cardiac biomarker shows stronger associations with kidney disease progression than BP
Identifying biomarkers for kidney disease progression may elucidate disease pathways and inform treatment. In a study of 3,379 adults with kidney disease followed for 12 years (47% with diabetes), elevated levels of N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide, a cardiac biomarker, were strongly associated with kidney disease progression; associations were stronger than those with systolic blood pressure ?140 mmHg, regardless of heart failure status. These findings highlight the potential role of cardiac disease in kidney disease progression. (2020-08-28)

Towards an AI diagnosis like the doctor's
Artificial intelligence is an important innovation in diagnostics, because it can learn to recognize abnormalities that a doctor would also label as a disease. But the way these systems work is opaque, and doctors have a better ''overall picture'' when they make the diagnosis. In this publication, Radboudumc researchers show how they can make the AI show how it's working, as well as let it diagnose more like a doctor, thus making AI more relevant to clinical practice.
