Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an important challange for healthcare systems wordwide because of its high prevalence and serious late complications. The results of recent studies suggest an association between CKD development and genetic variation within the uromodulin gene (UMOD). The aim of this study was to investigate associations between two common single nucleotide polymorphisms – rs12917707 and rs11864909, located in the region of UMOD and chronic renal disease. The study group consisted of 109 patients with chronic kidney disease, caused by chronic renal glomerulonephritis or chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis, and 109 pairs of their biological parents. Genotyping for rs12917707 and rs11864909 was carried out using the TaqMan Pre-designed SNP Genotyping Assay. In the transsmission disequilibrium test, allele C of rs11864909 was preferentialy transmitted from parents to the children with chronic tubulointerstinal nephritis. The rs12917707 was not associated with CKD. Neither of the investigated polymorphisms was associated with the progression of chronic kidney disease. The obtained results suggest an association of rs11864909 with chronic kidney disease secondary to chronic tubulointerstinal nephritis
