  1. Comparison of the KDNEG subset network against the micro-, macroalbuminuria and ESRD networks. The links were chosen by an automatic network topology algorithm (see Methods for details). The Spearman correlation coefficient (denoted by r) of continuous clinical and biochemical variables was used as the measure of association between the variables. Urine samples were not available from most patients with ESRD (72% missing); the r values presented were obtained from the imputed dataset. The links are sorted alphabetically. *P < 0.01, **P < 0.0001, comparison with KDNEG; † imputed.
