In Reply: In reply to Dr Corsonello and colleagues, the simplified MDRD equation for estimation of GFR is advocated by the Kidney Disease Outcome Quality Initiative (K/DOQI) working group.1 This formula is based on the equations presented in the original MDRD study,2 but Corsonnello et al are technically correct that we did not present the simplified equation. It was originally published as an abstract3 and can now be found in the K/DOQI practice guidelines.1
