To mark World Kidney Day 2019, we present a special collection of Reviews and Commentaries that describe the global burden of kidney disease, contributing risk factors, disparities in outcomes and approaches to increase access to therapy.
The global prevalence of hypertension is increasing owing to factors including population ageing and obesity. This series of articles aims to explore basic, clinical and translational aspects of hypertension, including the epidemiology, pathogenesis, patient management and novel therapeutic strategies.
The Key Advances in Medicine 2019 collection, a collaborative effort from the eight clinical Nature Reviews journals, offers expert insight into the most important discoveries made in 2018, and is an essential resource for students, physicians and clinical researchers.
In health and biomedical applications, electronic technologies allow monitoring, sensing and extracting physiological data as well as correcting or supporting tissue function through electrical stimuli. This collection highlights the recent developments in materials science, electronics and biology of bioelectronic devices.
In this article series, Nature Reviews Nephrology presents articles that explore the tools and techniques that are improving our understanding of renal development, physiology and disease mechanisms as well as contributing to advances in the screening, diagnosis and management of kidney diseases.
Much like our oceans, the world of clinical and biomedical research is vast, fast-paced, dynamic and full of unanswered questions. In 2017, numerous advances were made that could change the tide of efforts to fight disease. The Key Advances in Medicine eBook distils the major discoveries made in 2017 and highlights trends to look out for in 2018.
This series of articles aims to explore all aspects of nephrogenetics, from the genetics of monogenic diseases to complex traits and the interpretation and application of genetic and genomic data to improve patient outcomes.
The articles in this collection discuss topics including the characteristics and pathogenesis of obesity-related glomerulopathy, the importance of physical activity for patients with renal disease, the effect of insulin resistance on the kidney, HDL abnormalities in nephrotic syndrome, and organ cross-talk.
This collection of articles from across the Nature group of journals covers a range of areas related to the topic of diabetes, metabolism and the kidney, including the effects of insulin resistance on the kidney and vasculature, mechanisms of diabetic nephropathy and potential therapies.
