Here you can download genome-wide summary statistics (e.g., genetic effect estimates and association P-Values for millions of genetic variants) that resulted from various genome-wide association (GWAS) meta-analysis projects. 


Kidney function decline (Gorski et al. 2022)

Download summary statistics (Gorski et al., Kidney Int. 2022): 

CKDGen_eGFR-decline_overall_adjDM.txt.gz 

(md5sum: ea27368f59e7dc65cffdfb7d904e1d32)
These GWAS summary statistics for eGFR-decline are based on 343,339 individuals and adjusted for age, sex and diabetes-status. These can be considered equivalent to GWAS summary statistics on eGFR-decline adjusted for age and sex (not adjusted for diabetes-status): when comparing these summary statistics to summary statistics for eGFR-decline adjusted for age and sex (not adjusted for diabetes-status) in a subgroup, we found no difference in terms of beta-estimates, standard errors, P-values (Gorski et al., Kidney Int. 2022). 

CKDGen_eGFR-decline_overall_adjBL.txt.gz 

(md5sum: 1a64e96fb5945803642c8f6f38a9429b)
These GWAS summary statistics for eGFR-decline are based on 320,737 individuals and adjusted for age, sex and eGFR-baseline. The adjusting for eGFR-baseline here, and in general, for GWAS on eGFR-decline can induce a collider bias for genetic variants that are associated with eGFR-baseline; these summary statistics should thus be used with an understanding of such a collider bias.

CKDGen_eGFR-decline_DM.txt.gz 

(md5sum: ea427d8c34cd4db798492c0377cffe86)
These GWAS summary statistics for eGFR-decline are based on 37,375 individuals with diabetes at baseline adjusted for age and sex. 

CKDGen_eGFR-decline_CKD.txt.gz 

(md5sum: d040d352a2a60f27909fc109d9e1292c)
These GWAS summary statistics for eGFR-decline are based on 26,653 individuals with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) at baseline and can be considered genetic effects on CKD-progression. Similar to the adjusting for eGFR-baseline, the restriction to individuals with CKD at baseline can induce a bias in beta-estimates for genetic variants that are associated with CKD at baseline.

Diabetes-stratified kidney function (eGFR, Winkler et al. 2022)

Here you can download summary statistics from our diabetes-stratified GWAS meta-analysis on estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR, Winkler et al. Commun Biol 2022): 

The genome-wide association summary statistics contain genetic effects on log(eGFR) in individuals with diabetes, in individuals without diabetes, a difference test P-Value and a 2-degree-of-freedom chi-squared joint (main+interaction) test P-Value.

The results are derived from the combined Stage 1+2 meta-analysis. Further details on the phenotype transformation or sample inclusions can be found in the paper (Winkler et al. Commun Biol 2022).

Rapid kidney function decline (Gorski et al. 2021)

Rapid kidney function decline - Summary Statistics

From the annual eGFRcrea decline we derived two case-control-definitions: (1) “Rapid3” cases defined as eGFRcrea decline of >3 mL/min/1.73m² per year compared to “no decline” (1 to +1 mL/min/1.73m² per year), (2) ”CKDi25” cases defined as ≥25% eGFRcrea decline during follow-up together with a movement from eGFRcrea≥60 mL/min/1.73m² at baseline to eGFRcrea<60 mL/min/1.73m² at follow-up compared to “CKDi25” controls defined as eGFRcrea≥60 mL/min/1.73m² at baseline and follow-up. Both binary phenotype were adjusted for sex, age and baseline eGFRcrea.
