AbstractThe longitudinal eGFR levels of patients in the Hopkins Lupus Cohort were modelled by piecewise linear regression to evaluate the slope of different line segments. The slopes were classified into declining (≤-4 mL/min/1.73 m2 per year), stable (-4 to 4 mL/min/1.73 m2 per year), and increasing (≥4 mL/min/1.73 m2 per year) states. The transition rate between states and the impact of clinical parameters were estimated by a Markov model.
