Metabolomics and Uremic Toxins: What Do They Mean for Kidney Diseases?

November 09, 2019 | 02:00 PM - 04:00 PM

Location: 144, Walter E. Washington Convention Center

Session Description

This session broadly outlines evolution in the field of uremic toxins. Special attention is directed to new concepts and observations that are driving the field forward, such as the generation of uremic solutes, the alteration of the metabolome by dialytic and nondialytic maneuvers, and the epidemiology of metabolites with adverse outcomes.

Learning Objective(s)

  • Discuss recent progress in the field of uremic toxins
  • Describe the relevance of the microbiome in kidney diseases
  • Assess strategies that alter the metabolome and microbiome
  • Identify novel pathways induced by kidney diseases that confer increased cardiovascular risks

Learning Pathway(s)

  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Dialysis
