This is the expanded second edition of Recent Advances in Development and Progression of Kidney Diseases, the first edition of which published eleven papers.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) are worldwide public health problems. The prevalence of ESKD could rise prominently over the next few decades, driven by the coming acceleration of global population aging and an increasing prevalence of diabetes and hypertension. To overcome this problem, it is indispensable for us to investigate the factors associated with the development of kidney diseases, to explore the mechanism of CKD to ESKD progression, and to search for better treatment options for various kidney diseases.
This Special Issue offers an open access forum that aims to gather a collection of original research and review articles addressing the cellular/molecular mechanism, diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of kidney diseases, which include primary/secondary glomerulonephritis, rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, acute kidney injury, diabetic nephropathy/diabetic kidney disease, chronic renal failure, renal fibrosis, and polycystic kidney disease.
We hope that this Special Issue will provide essential and insightful evidence for our understanding of the development and progression of various kidney diseases.
