Limited Competition for the Continuation of Cure Glomerulonephropathy (CureGN) Data Coordinating Center (U24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
The purpose of this Limited Competition is to extend the Cure Glomerulonephropathy (CureGN) Network by continuing to support the Data Coordinating Center (DCC). The CureGN Network is a multicenter observational cohort study of glomerular disease patients with the goal of improving care for all glomerular disease patients. The operational components of the study include four multi-site Participating Clinical Centers (PCC) and a DCC. The CureGN Network, established in 2013, has recruited nearly 2,200 of 2,400 planned study participants and followed them with annual in-person clinic visits and interim telephone contacts. The DCC provides key leadership functions for this study in the areas of study organization, study design and implementation, overall management, data management and analysis, and biosample management. The CureGN PCCs will continue to follow-up previously enrolled participants under a separate FOA with a focus on clinical assessment of disease activity, developing novel methods for "virtual" study participation,and semi-quantitative assessment of histopathologic lesions. It is expected that a focus on disease features unique to glomerulonephropathy and outcomes relevant to the full range of patient experience, combined with carefully curated clinical and biochemical data, will uncover new predictors of the disease course, pathophysiologic processes, disease subtypes and novel treatment targets. The DCC will lead the study group to achieve the scientific goals of the next project period.
