 ASN2012 Report # 2 (censure: Iseki, Tsukamoto)
 1. AFCKDI Registry Working Group
Time Nov. 2, 2012 18:45-19:45 at the ASN, San Diego CA, USA
Place Hilton San Diego Bayfront
Attendance Vivekanand Jha (Co-chair), Kunitoshi Iseki (Co-chair), Ho Jun Chin, Chi-Bon Leung, Shang-Jyh Hwang, Chih-Kang Chiang, Kearkiat Praditpornsilpa, Yoshinari Yasuda, Takashi Wada, Enyu Imai, T Maruyama,

Agenda and discussion:

1) Asian CKD cohorts: So-far, only three countries such as Japan, Korea, and India provided general screening cohort. CKD registry paper was published recently in the Lancet from China. We could collect references to do meta-analysis similar to the activity of KDIGO. In the KDIGO-PC, ethnicity was White, Black, and Asians which is Japanese. We have multiple ethnic groups in Asian countries at least four such as Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, and Indians. We may construct consortium like KDIGO. Few data is available on microalbuminuria in Asian countries in KDIGO.

2) Dialysis registry: Dialysis therapy is developing in Asian countries. In 2013, we will discuss at JSDT2013 and 7th AFCKDI in Thailand.

3) Proposal from JSN: Drs. T Yasuda (Nephrotic syndrome), T Wada (diabetes associated CKD), and Y Yasuda (IgA-ACCESS) presented ongoing projects in Japan. Other than Japan, tonsillectomy is seldom neither performed nor recommended for the treatment of IgA nephropathy. We need further collaboration.
