Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The scientific research on kidney disease boomed in the second half of the last century and was mostly concentrated on the treatment of end-stage renal disease. The progress in knowledge of the immune system, renal physiology, pathology, genetics, and metabolism has allowed for improvements in the treatment of kidney diseases. The future goal of the research in nephrology is the prevention of kidney disease. Children offer a formidable opportunity for research in kidney diseases; congenital and hereditary nephropathies may be studied in the early stages, when acquired nephropathies are not complicated by other diseases. In this Special Issue, we welcome studies aiming to understand the genetic and molecular basis and the mechanisms responsible for the production and progression of renal damage. Studies on congenital and hereditary nephropathies in children will be accepted, as well as clinical research on recent developments in the diagnosis and treatment of glomerulopathies, tubular disorders, and renovascular hypertension in children.
