Our study did not include patients who were at a high risk for urologic disease
such as older men.
The biologic functions of these 273 biomarkers include inflammatory disease or response, respiratory disease, cellular movement, lipid metabolism, molecular transport, immunologic disease, hematologic disease, renal and urologic disease
, cell-to-cell signaling, cellular growth and proliferation, cardiovascular disease, genetic disorders, psychological disorders, metabolic disease, small molecule biochemistry, molecular transport, nutritional disease, endocrine system disorders, cell death, tissue morphology, organismal survival, lymphoid tissue structure and development, antigen presentation, tissue development, carbohydrate metabolism, organ morphology, embryonic development, behavior, and digestive system development and functions.
Those substances then crystallize to form kidney stones, says the American Foundation for Urologic Disease
This program announcement is a reissuance of PAR-04-065, and specifically encourages the submission of applications for pilot and feasibility clinical and translational research studies, including clinical trials, and epidemiologic studies, related to kidney or urologic disease
research that address important clinical and translational questions and are potentially of high impact.

Although the incidence of significant urologic disease
in patients with asymptomatic microscopic hematuria is low--probably only about 5%--the amount of blood in the urine doesn't correlate with the severity of any underlying disease.
Screening patients for asymptomatic microhematuria does not appear to improve outcomes, since screening does not identify a population with increased prevalence of urologic malignancy (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on prospective cohort studies) or the presence of urologic disease
of any type (SOR: B, based on 1 cohort study).
Go to the "Just for You" directory and click on "men" and then "prostate cancer," for example, and you'll be linked to 20 articles on prevention, screening, and treatment from the National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Aging, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Foundation for Urologic Disease
, and major medical school sites.

In addition, there is information about program meetings and activities, an events calendar, and a directory of kidney and urologic disease
Significant urologic disease
can be associated with intermittent hematuria.
