Brief Summary of Protocol:
MicroRNA (MiRNA) is bits and pieces of “genetic (heredity) material” found in the cells of your body. It helps to control some of the tasks that your cells perform. The reason for doing this research is to study urine samples and determine if certain substances (miRNA) in the urine can predict that someone may develop a kidney problem in the future or help diagnose a kidney problem. This is called a biomarker.
