Mechanisms and New Treatment Opportunities for Renal Fibrosis

November 20, 2016 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Location: W187

Session Description

Renal fibrosis is a common response to renal injury and may promote more rapid progression of CKD. New insights into mechanisms contributing to fibrosis, noninvasive biomarkers to detect, and treatment are on the horizon. This session explores these aspects of nephrology.

Session Objectives

Upon completion of this session, the participant will be able to: 1. describe new insights to mechanisms contributing to renal fibrosis; 2. explore the role of eGFR and its inhibitors in renal fibrosis; 3. evaluate noninvasive biomarkers that mark presence and severity of fibrosis; and 4. discuss new treatments that may influence renal fibrotic pathways in animals and humans.
