Special Issue in Transplantology: Recent Advances in Dialysis and Kidney Transplantation
An overview of clinical Kidney transplantation during the last decade includes increasing attempts to reduce the short- and long-term side effects of immunosuppression drugs, the reduction or avoidance of corticosteroids, and the reduction of acute rejection and chronic allograft injury. Another important key area in kidney transplantation is the elusive goal of inducing a permanent state of tolerance to the allograft and making it free of long-term immunosuppressive therapy. A few transplant centers are getting closer to inducing tolerance in humans and it could be a reality in the near future. We have also seen an increase in the number of donations after cardiac deaths, robotic kidney transplantation, and living donor kidney transplants with great clinical and surgical outcomes. Regenerative medicine, organ bioengineering, organogenesis, and xenotransplantation are making their way into Kidney transplantation, and they are making important contributions to the field of transplantation.
Transplantology wants to release a Special Issue about “State-of the-Art of Kidney Transplantation.” These manuscripts should address novel clinical trial immunosuppression protocols, surgical innovations in the field of Kidney transplantation, immune mechanisms of allograft rejection, any novel strategy that optimizes long-term allograft and patient survival, intestinal transplantation, regenerative medicine, tolerance, living kidney donation and transplantation. We also want to include comprehensive reviews, basic research and any interesting topic that will enrich the field of kidney transplantation.
