Combating Kidney Diseases: Joint ASN-JSN Session

November 07, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: Salon C, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

Cutting-edge science that crosses the spectrum of AKI and CKD is the center of this session. The common theme is novel pathophysiologic mechanisms in kidney diseases. The goal is to begin to define new targets for treatment of kidney diseases. The session starts off with a discussion of the role of erythropoietin-producing cells in kidney fibrosis and follows up with a presentation on the role of oxidant stress in AKI. Detailed information on oxygen metabolism in AKI and CKD is reviewed. The session ends with a presentation on neuro-immune regulation in kidney diseases.

ASN thanks the Japanese Society of Nephrology for assistance with this session.
