nephro: Utilities for Nephrology

Set of functions to estimate kidney function and other phenotypes of interest in nephrology based on different biomechimal traits. MDRD, CKD-EPI, and Virga equations are compared in Pattaro (2013) <doi:10.1159/000351043>, where the respective references are given. In addition, the software includes Stevens (2008) <doi:10.1053/j.ajkd.2007.11.018> and Cockroft (1976) <doi:10.1159/000180580> formulas. The race-free CKD-EPI equations (2021) <doi:10.1056/NEJMoa2102953> are also implemented from ver.1.3.
