The prevalence of chronic kidney disease (CKD) continues to expand worldwide, and the morbidity and health care costs associated with CKD impacts health care costs across the globe. While much effort has gone into understanding the pathogenesis of CKD, progress on therapeutic options to prevent, or attenuate, the progression of renal dysfunction has been much slower.
This issue of the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will focus on recent “Advances in Chronic Kidney Disease”, including new insights into the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of CKD. While estimated glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and proteinuria are widely used markers of CKD progression, new data is emerging on other potential biomarkers for the disease. In addition, several other morbidities, including acute kidney injury (AKI), are associated with CKD and submissions dealing with these diseases are welcome.
