Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

Until recently, nephrology has been unable to keep pace with oncology, cardiology, or rheumatology in the inexhaustible pipeline of new treatment options tested in an ever-increasing number of randomized controlled trials. In recent years, we have witnessed a dramatic increase in the interest in treating chronic kidney disease, e.g., diabetic kidney disease, glomerular disease, or autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. This has also been aimed more generally at the progression of chronic kidney disease and the complications of chronic kidney disease, such as anemia or hyperkalemia. This progress has led to changing paradigms, as reflected by several recently published KDIGO guidelines, which now need to be updated much more frequently than before. To personalize treatment, we also need better diagnostic methods, including validated biomarkers reflecting the activity of the disease (including response to treatment) and predicting outcomes.

This new edition of Special Issue in Kidney and Dialysis aims is to cover most of these areas through feature reviews, original articles and keeping the reader updated on the recent progress in nephrology and dialysis.

The topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Biomarkers;
  • The progression of chronic kidney disease;
  • Cardiovascular and renal risk in CKD;
  • COVID-19 and the kidney;
  • Onconephrology;
  • Kidney function;
  • Chronic kidney disease (CKD), complications, and nutrition;
  • Acute kidney injury (AKI)/critical care;
  • Diabetic kidney disease;
  • Glomerulonephritis;
  • Cardionephrology;
  • Pregnancy and CKD;
  • Hypertension and nephrology;
  • ADPKD;
  • Renal vasculitis;

  • Treatment of kidney disease;
  • Dietary management and medication;
  • Renal replacement therapy;

  • New diagnosis methods and technologies for kidney function and disease;

We hope this topic is engaging and invite you to send a tentative title and short abstract to our editorial office (kidneydial@mdpi.com) for evaluation before submission. Please note that selected papers are still subject to a thorough peer review.

We look forward to receiving your excellent work.
